Is it fair for an employer to terminate someone over the things they do in their private life, or for something that took place in their personal life?
Dana & Parks shared a story out of New York, where an Emmy-nominated TV meteorologist claims he was fired after someone took photos of him on an adult webcam site and sent them to his boss, according to a lawsuit.
In an Instagram post, Erick Adame wrote that he "secretly appeared" on an adult cam website and even though the activities were "100% consensual" and he wasn't paid, it was "absurd" to think he could keep this private. His employer found out, suspended him and then fired him.
It made Dana & Parks wonder: Is it really that absurd to think your private life shouldn't affect your professional life? Did Adame deserve to be fired?
