Heather B. Hamilton has a wonderful blog. She also had a whistleblower at her job who got her fired because of her blog. I've invited her to join us here. We have a lawyer among us--Denise I know it's not your specialty, but this seems so unfair. Are we all so vulnerable? For what, wondering outloud?
I lost my job today. My direct boss and the human resources representative pulled me into one of three relatively tiny conference rooms and informed me that The Company no longer had any use for me. Essentially, they explained, they didn't like what I had expressed on my website. I got fired because of dooce.com. ...Two weeks ago an anonymous person emailed every vice president of my company to inform them that I had written unsavory things on my personal website. I have yet to determine who sent the email or why this anonymous someone would hide behind a false email address. Conversely, I have devised several ways to torture said anonymous person when his/her identity surfaces.
I don't know all of the particulars, but perhaps Heather will stop by.
