Business Week cover story: "Fear of Firing"



Reporter Michael Orey's article is subtitled: "How the threat of litigation is making companies skittish about axing problem workers". Which seems like a good occasion for marking the ten-year anniversary of my book The Excuse Factory (Free Press, 1997), which treated this phenomenon at book length (annotated table of contents, review highlights, other information on book, Amazon link). David Nieporent has more at Overlawyered.
