How to Lose Your Job on Your Own Time

How to Lose Your Job on Your Own Time: "Employment law in most states provides little protection to workers who are punished for their online postings, said George Lenard, an employment lawyer at Harris Dowell Fisher & Harris in St. Louis.

Oh! doocing all around?
