IBM Sued for Firing Alleged Internet Addict

Kombat Re:Someone's lying here... (341 comments)

if someone has cancer, and is exhausted and nauseous after receiving their chemotherapy, you should fire him too?

Of course not. You send them home on long-term disability and replace them. Companies have an obligation to be sympathetic, but not outright charitable. There's no reasonable expectation for a company to continue paying someone a full salary and receiving nothing in return, simply because the person has a crippling illness. That's what insurance is for. Salary is payment in exchange for work.

Most medical professionals consider alcoholism a disease.

Provably false and thus unworthy of further comment.
