Limerick of the Week
I always have a hard time teaching Donahue v. FedEx, in which an employee-at-will is terminated after attempting to blow the whistle on his corrupt boss. The court recognizes that there is a public-policy exception to the at-will doctrine but states that there is no public policy protecting whistle blowers. There isn't?
Plaintiff, an employee at will,
Thought his boss had a hand in the till.
FedEx is correct;
"Bad faith" won't protect
Where policy contentions are nil.
I also have a problem because I can't get the last line of my Limerick to scan.
