        Reviled is not spelled "relieved"...

          I'll make sure to include at least a few "back" medals too!
          Geez, did these guys get a medal every time they took a dump? Must be nice to be able to award yourself medals.

          The guy on the right looks like he got a number of "most times able to kiss Fearless Leader's Read End within an hour" awards.

          I wonder how those two guys way down on the left feel that they haven't been awarded enough crap medals they need to use their pants for space?

                  I guess you could call it fraud, but most employers reserve the right to terminate your employment if you've lied or misrepresented yourself during the application process. It's cheaper and ties up less manpower to can you, and send you on your way.

                    Apparently, they will no longer be able to do that, since the employee can no claim he was exercising his "First Amendment right to free speech".

                    We live in an upside down world. I wonder how soon we will be convicted of telling the truth if it hurts someone's feelings?

                      True story MM! I was harassed by a LEO this weekend because I was following the law. He didn't like the law, and tried to buffalo me. I cited the law, he admitted I was correct, and then continuing lecturing me about what he thought the law should be. The man got upset and just couldn't deal with the actual law. If he could of, I think he would cited me knowing the actual law.

                        I was speaking more from a legality question. An employer can always find an excuse to justify firing someone, and lying is certainly grounds for it.

                        But can the state punish you for lying on a resume to a third party?

                          No. But I think you can be prosecuted if your resume was for a government job because they seem to have a "under penalty of perjury" clause in their job applications.

                            In some cases yes. If you misrepresent your qualifications or licensing for many jobs the state could come after you. Practicing medicine without license, unlicensed contracting, that sort of thing.

                            So, if you lied to an employer like above, that employer could fire you and the state could come after you as well.
