Um, employment law issues, I’d reply. And then I’d say something about how I talk about things that happen at work.
Recently, they asked if I had written about their passion. (Disappointingly, when I said I had already written about the Yankees, they said that wasn’t what they were talking about.)
No, they were talking about Minecraft.
Which led me on down a strange path of asking myself why any self-respecting employment lawyer would write about a computer game in the first place? (Though I’ve written about such games before). But also asking whether employers should even care about this game.
I think I have the answers to both, but let me first fill you in on what I’m talking about.
