One great thing about practicing in employment law and human relations is that things are never dull. Remember the television show "Kids Say the Darndest Things"? Well, employees (and contractors in this case) do the craziest things. Advances in technology allow co-workers, customers and vendors to capture these lapses in judgment and post for public consumption.
Last week a Houston Astros’ stadium vendor learned this lesson the hard way. The vendor was captured on video taking his snow cone tray into the restroom stall.
Shortly after the incident was reported to stadium management (and the media), the snow cone contractor was terminated. There is no substitute for hiring employees with good judgment.
