    It may not be that they have to decide or not, it may be a matter of them legally being required to follow their own HR policies and procedures. If they have a documented mechanism in place for firing someone for gross misconduct or criminal actions (and they probably do have such procedures), then they must follow their own procedure for terminating him, even if it takes a few days to do so.

    Everyone in our IT Department, including myself, found this story far too amusing.

    I too wonder what he had to complain about... 126K a year ain't nothing to sneeze at. :confused:
