    To add to the 'bad employee' stories.

    We had a RCMP officer here who was still on his 6 month training at 2 years (this shows how great he was at his job to begin with), who walked into his bosses office and informed them that he was a drug addict and heavily in debt to the local drug dealers. He was sent away for rehab, and then came back!!!!!! Not only was he a horrible employee who nobody wanted to work with (he pointed his gun at fellow officers, by accident, on multiple occasions), but he was also a huge security risk due to his ties to crime in our town. Eventually, due to the other officers complaints and refusals to work with him, he was transferred to a desk job in a very sought after detachment. It was absolutely ridiculous, but apparently they cant fire the guy??? So stupid!

    Sounds like BC is like AB et al when it comes to addicted employees. Here if an employee admits that they have a drug or alcohol problem then not only can the employer not fire them, they MUST pay for their rehab/treatment. It is discrimination because drug/alcohol addiction is considered to be a disease and you can't fire somebody based on their physical disabilities. However, if the employer suspects that the employee has a drug problem and confronts the employee and offers to pay for treatment and the employee refuses and denies the addiction then the employer has the right to terminate based on the job performance alone and not the drug problem which the employee has denied exists.

    I think that all of these of these stories are interesting but they really take away from the topic- which I see as hugely important to women's rights.

    Id like to see more people chime in on how they feel about penalizing the victim of the crime.

    Agreed (even though I told one of the stories).

    I think it's preposterous to penalize the victim. I can't fathom how it would be okay. I agree that it's a tricky situation all around but this is where our legal system needs to step in and help.

    I'll chime in on the original story. (I read this thread a while ago but didn't bother to respond)

    I think its really wrong for this woman to suffer the consequences of her husband's actions. She didn't do anything wrong and it sounds like our law enforcement system worked as it should, which protects the children and the school.

    You know, i understand wanting to keep our children and schools safe. I totally do. I want safety for my children, of course i do. But I don't think my children's safety trumps all in every situation. I don't think I, or a school diocese should be able to make flippant choices with other innocent people's lives and claim its to 'protect my child'. This man showed up at the school, there was a lock down in place, proper procedure was followed and then law enforcement and our justice system stepped in to punish him for his actions. That is what is in place to protect my child. This woman deserves to have a career and I think its really wrong to suggest she shouldn't have one because of her ex-husband. As much as we would like to as parents, if you want to put your kids out there in the world, life won't be 100% risk free...we still need to respect other peoples lives.
