OA97: What Can Your Employer Fire You For?

Today’s show deals with a number of issues that all surround what your employer can (and cannot) fire you for.

First, we begin by revisiting the “Google manifesto” topic from Opening Arguments Episode #94 as Thomas and Andrew respond to some hate mail from a listener who no longer wants to listen to the show after that episode.  Does he have a point?  Listen and find out.

Next, the guys break down whether employees can discuss their salaries with co-workers on the job.

After that, Andrew and Thomas answer a question from Patron April who wants to know how much an employer can control your social media use.

Finally, we end with the answer to Thomas Take the Bar Exam Question #37 regarding installment contracts.  And don’t forget to play along by following our Twitter feed (@Openargs) and/or our Facebook Page and quoting the Tweet or Facebook Post that announces this episode along with your guess and reason(s)!
