Re: Good Luck

Some of their labour laws can lead to insane situations. I know of an organisation that caught someone in the counting room stealing cash, and because the person was popular with the staff the staff management (a peculiar, very German thing for large companies that I still don't quite understand) nixxed sacking him.

That led to the IMHO utterly bizarre situation that they did not only have to employ this person again, but even in the exact same position..

Then again, I recall a London Tube driver who was sacked after being caught drunk on the job being reinstated by the drive's union, so maybe there isn't such a big difference at all.
