It’s that time of year again. When employees dress up in inappropriate outfits and engage in general stupidity.
I am speaking, of course, about Halloween.
Don’t believe me? I’ve got several blog posts to prove it.
For example, in prior years, I’ve warned you to be on the lookout for “Naughty Nurses”. Yes, somewhere out there some employee is thinking this is a good idea.
But costumes aren’t the only source of trouble. Buying an employee Halloween presents with a “lustful” look in your eyes, led to another lawsuit.
Then there was the supervisor was fired after he “responded to a question about his stated intention to dress as a woman for Halloween by saying that he was a hermaphrodite who menstruated and used to wear a bra.” You’ll have to read that one for yourself.
In any event, Halloween doesn’t have to be the source of trouble. Even though one judge told one litigant that Halloween was going to be a “pain in the neck”.
