Re: Called A ''Terrorist'' By A T/O

I hope not!

But an employee in uniform has got to be very careful calling anyone an offensive name in front of others, especially 'terrorist' in an age like ours. And a train's engineer has to be careful also in what he says about photography regulations and orders not to photograph. (All of this is aside form this case, it goes for any case).

Because, from the employee's perspective even if there's nothing wrong with his conduct under the law, his employer might well take unfavorable action. Employers punish employees all of the time for saying things that the government can't punish. As for "advice", well, we live in a very litigious society, and were I advising an employer, it's important to give them the worst-case scenario so that they can evaluate their own protocols. (That's certainly what the people who advise the pharmaceutical companies must do - it's like, wow, most any medicine one takes can kill him or make him wish he were dead!).
