What's the Litigation Value of Each Crazy Action In The Office?

No doubt as a HR Pro you routinely assign potential legal expenses to things you see or hear about inJulietag our field, an area of your practice well covered by a couple of blogs I recommend - see Jottings By An Employer's Lawyer and George's Employment Law Blog...

To make sure you aren't taking it too seriously, Julie Elgar of HRHeroblogs takes a stab at estimating the litigation costs of the wild managerial behavior displayed on a weekly basis on NBC's "The Office".  Julie's an employment law attorney from Atlanta, and her analysis comes off as pretty sound, including advice that being a jerk doesn't have any litigation value as an individual event, but it usually comes back to haunt managers moving forward..

For a real world view into the life of employment law, check out Julie's disclaimer on her site.  Sad but true, she knows all too well she has to spell that stuff out.  Great stuff, take a look and bookmark if you like, no RSS available at this point...
