    Please sue A&O. A&O is infringing emplyee's freedom of speech. People's behaviour after work is not only subject to law but also the firm's policy?! Come on! We are not slavery!!!

  • No big deal

    What's the big deal? Why lawyers can read erotic stories but can't write erotic stories, especially when it's expressly stated that the stories are fictional? Absolute hypocrisy in my view. Come on, this is 21st century, the Internet age, long after Lady Chatterley's Lover was banned!

  • Firm values or slavery?

    A&O management seems like a bunch of hypocrites . What values do law frms have any way? She has been used to set an example to behave like a slave in professional and personal life!

  • I think the main problem is here

    ... she filed a grievance which was fully investigated in accordance with our standard policies and found to be groundless, although she has appealed against the decision

    She moved forward first, they got pissed. Here is the result. But I feel sorry for this girl.

  • STUPIDITY FACISM AND MORE STUPIDITY

    What a pathetic stae of affairs.

    If this woman wants to write erotic fiction then she should be allowed to do so. Nobody has the right to terminate her employment because she likes to write, no matter what genre she chooses. Those who are responcible for this woman losing her job are pathetic morons.

  • What's wrong with a firm wanting their associates to conform to a certain standard of behavior? Should they no longer have that right?

    This isn't about free speech (she still has that), it's about freedom to contract.
