Blogging on the Job

I ran across this interesting article on CNet about how you can be fired for blogging. Their bottom line? If your boss sees your blog and is offended by something in there, in most states you have almost no protection from being fired. That said, both New York, California, Colorado, Montana and North Dakota have all recently passed laws that limit the action a private employer can take based on your off-duty behavior. But the flipside of this statement is a little unsettling: in 45 states, your employer can fire you for just about anything you do on your own time. Scary.

By the way, The Naked Truth is the blog where I got the article from. All you liberals, role-players and writers out there (you know who you are) should check it out.

hey, if companies can fire you for smoking this doesn't bowl me over all that much.

The Red Bull Diary Is
The Red Bull Diary is the personal pulpit and intellectual dumping-ground for its author, an amateur game designer, professional programmer, political centrist and incurable skeptic. The Red Bull Diary is gaming, game design, politics, development, geek culture, and other such nonsense.
