Employer of the month

More news from Florida: a law firm fires 14 employees (non-lawyer service staff, apparently) for wearing orange shirts to work.
They weren't wearing sagging pants or revealing clothing. But dressing in an orange shirt is apparently enough to get fired at one Florida law firm, where 14 workers were unceremoniously let go last Friday.

In an interview with the Ft. Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel, several of the fired workers say they wore the matching colors so they would be identified as a group when heading out for a happy hour event after work. They say the executive who fired them initially accused them of wearing the matching color as a form of protest against management.
Luckily for the workers, the "executive" didn't feel threatened and start shooting at them in self-defense. Because apparently that shit would be legal too, in Florida.

The article identifies the employer as "the law offices of Elizabeth R. Wellborn, P.A.," so let's hope plenty of folks let 'em know what they think of their practice.
