Nice!



Yeah, the political/social discussions are fun to watch here. I just can't throw my hat into it anymore. It's like screaming under water; a whole lot of effort for very little results.



Got to hand it to KPaul, though. That little bastard sure does have some stamina. I don't agree with him, but he is persistent.

Wait! I've been hanging around here since 1999. There is NO WAY you can say this place was ever well-orginized!

I'm always happy when the right person gets what comming. I like the fact it happened to a guy that deserved it.

Default Repeat After Me

Repeat the following phrase over and over until it sinks in. "Employment at will."



http://www.smartagreements.com/bltopics/Bltopi57.html



Any employer with a dozen functioning neurons will specify in his employee handbook that employment is "at will." It is assumed in most states unless there is a contract. I need no cause to fire any employee. Cheerios for breakfast (unless they are honey-nut) is adequate reason for me to fire someone. But I will be paying unemployment premiums on him for the privledge.



From a policy POV, labor flexibility is a good thing. If it is difficult and/or expensive to fire employees when they become unneeded or unwanted then I am less likely to hire them in the first place. I'll either outsource the work, automate the process, or pay my existing employees overtime to do the work.

Here's a question; does KPaul have a job? How can anyone post so often and be that lengthy in response and still hold a job. It's gotta take some time to rant that much.



Is there an AA for Rantaholics?

depends on the state, but most places you can fire anyone you want for any reason you want. Trust me, I've been in front line management for twenty plus years. You may lose the unemployment hearing and have to pay, but you can fire them.
