Really, Eric. Another post about those darn Department of Labor overtime rules?!?
Hold up! This one’s different.
I know y’all are waiting with baited breath — wait, hold do you bait breath? Like a putting a worm on a fishing line or something?
Right, as I was saying, I know y’all are waiting with bated breath for me to publish all of those reader-submitted holiday-party “yowzas” I asked you to email me yesterday. But, let’s give that one more day to marinate — build the suspense.
Inspired by a quality discussion in my Facebook feed today, I’m thinking that some of you HR-compliance geeks probably have some good holiday party stories to share with me.
That’s right, for once, I’m going to live vicariously through you.
When defending against a woman’s sexual harassment claim, I’ve found that “she was asking for it” is generally a bad defense. So bad, in fact, that you may just want to whip out the old checkbook instead.
Another crappy one, apparently, is trying to convince a judge that an industrial workplace setting is carte blanche to knuckle drag and generally act like pigs.
Also known as the “blue collar” defense.
