WIRTW #248 (the “vote early, vote often” edition)

In case you haven’t heard, there is a presidential election taking place on Tuesday. My guess is that a few of your employees are going to vote, and some may even want to arrive at work late, or leave early, to beat the pre- and post-9 to 5 rush at the polls.

In case you are thinking about holding your workers to their normal work hours on election day, you should know that Ohio has a statute that requires employers to provide a “reasonable amount of time to vote on election day.”

And remember, if you don’t vote, you have no right to complain. Or, is George Carlin right, and it’s the other way around? (Do I need to warn you that a Carlin clip is likely NSFW?)

Here’s the rest of what I read this week:
