Little known fact, this defense works extremely well in corporate America if you are at risk of being fired.

  • Do something stupid. Anything that would normally get someone fired.
  • Immediately use the employee EAP (employee assistance program) to seek care for alcohol abuse.
  • Begin "treatment" which can last for several years, during which time it is absolutely impossible to fire you under threat of lawsuit.
  • Usually have a new boss or even a new job at the same company by the time the treatment period has ended.

I watch guys use this one all the time.
