Naked Fridays

Employment attorney and party pooper John Phillips on an English firm's decision to have "Naked Fridays":

In the U.S., however, don’t do this. Don’t suggest it. Don’t ask your employees if they’d be interested in it. Don’t bother getting legal advice. Rely on a lesser known American labor and employment law proverb that there is a fine line between having fun at work and a hostile environment.

But Michael, I must retain some semblance of respectability. On the other hand, since the law business is also in the doldrums, perhaps throwing caution to the wind is what I should do. I could cause the litigation and then defend it.

You may be onto something there.
