"You can't fire me, I'm drunk!"

So you think we're having fun in Oklahoma! Drunkenness is apparently a protected work activity in Peru.

The Supreme Court of Peru reinstated Pablo Cayo to his job as a janitor for the City of Chorrillos after he appealled his firing for being drunk on the job. Read the whole story on Reuters.

For information on the voluntary intoxication defense, in Oklahoma, visit my website.

  1. I saw this yesterday and was totally amazed! I suppose culture plays into this, but when it comes to the safety of others, let alone myself, I can't imagine! We have so many fast paced machines, heavy equipment, chemicals, in our workplaces, that a drunk is a catalyst for big problems.
