Employees charged with crimes



Sued-if-you-do, sued-if-you-don't files: "'I think companies are concerned that if they take action against the employee, the employee may bring a claim. And if they don't take action, others who are injured may bring a claim,' said employment attorney Jonathan Segal of Wolf, Block, Schorr and Solis-Cohen in Philadelphia. Segal noted that companies are increasingly dealing with employees who miss work because of criminal offenses like drunk driving or assault charges." (Tresa Baldas, "When Employees Face Criminal Charges, Employers Face a Dilemma", National Law Journal, Jul. 20)(cross-posted from Overlawyered).
