That is SO last week

That infamous Ashley Madison data became searchable last week.  Spouses, friends, and employers can now search the data to see if they know anyone who registered with the site.  This development caused some to wonder if an employer should check.  Heather Bussing, Jonathan Segal, and two other employment attorneys we know well all recommended that employers not look.  On the other hand, the military has looked at the site in the past, and has the potential to court-martial service members who used the site to commit violations of military regulations.

In other (really important) developments
Franchisors around the country cringed when news of the NLRB decision in Browning-Ferris was announced, strongly suggesting that the franchisor-franchisee relationship might be a joint employer relationship.
