    I don't really care whether they fire him or keep him on, so long as they do so after an investigation. What irks me most about the recent string of high-profile firings is that so few of the articles about them tell us whether there was an actual investigation (Matt Lauer's is the only one I've read about that I know followed an investigation).

    It was my impression that Matt Lauer was fired the day after one of his accusers spent a few hours with her attorney and the head of Lauer's show (or maybe it was the head of CBS) to tell her story, and the next day Lauer was fired. There was no investigation before that was there?

    In order to create a workplace that is fun to work in, you respect your colleagues and the people you work with. If Kern can't do that, he has no place in that workplace, especially since he's already been investigated twice and send to sensitivity training (which is, in my opinion, stupid at best -- tips don't work with repeat offenders).

    Either the people he thinks he can control call him out publicly -- either way, it looks like he doesn't care what they think and continue anyway. Perhaps one of the ladies should kick him where it counts and show him his place.

    Making a workplace 'fun' is never going to be a priority for employers.

    My employer begs the difference.

    A good work atmosphere, makes for productive employees and less sickdays which benefits the employer.

    Now I'm thinking I got the wrong name (there have been so many lately). Unfortunately, since the article I read was linked to a discussion on another board, it's not easy to find it again. All of which just reinforces my point.

    Firing someone after an internal investigation has more meaning to me than firing someone as a knee-jerk reaction to a public complaint.

    Good work atmosphere and 'fun' are not the same thing.

    One of the definitions of "fun" is "enjoyable". So I would say a good work atmosphere and fun can be the same thing. One of the places I worked in for many years was both enjoyable and fun (a lot of the time, but not always).

    I can guarantee you, for all us at the office it's pretty much synonymous.

    They should. Happy employees work harder and produce more.
    angry resentful and unhappy employees work less and mess up more....and don’t care if they mess up.

    Treat people the way you want to be treated.

    I had the micromanaging boss and now have a ‘you know your job, do it and keep me in the loop’ boss. Trust me, we are more relaxed and happy with that than we were with miss ‘you put your coat on too early’

    and we all get our jobs done.

    Shalita Grant, who plays Sonja Percy on “NCIS: New Orleans,” is leaving the drama, Variety has learned exclusively.

    Sources say the departure is amicable and mutually agreed upon between the actress and the producers of the CBS procedural, which is shot in the Crescent City.

    Grant recurred as Percy, a former ATF agent recruited to the NCIS unit, in the show’s first season. She was elevated to a series regular for the second, third, and fourth seasons of the program. Grant’s final episode will be the 17th installment of the fourth season, which will air April 3.
    From here.

    That's no surprise -- she's been missing for more episodes than I can count, and know she's been busy doing other stuff. Will miss her though, really like City Mouse (and Country Mouse).

    Gregorio grew on me, so LOVE love love her now.

    Whomever it is, there will be a transitional period.

    Anytime a character becomes the moral compass of a series, you know they are doomed lol

    Diane Neal (the Coast Guard agent on both NCIS and NCIS:NOLA) is running for congress. Not turning this into anything political. I just really like her character on both shows, and she will likely not be available to be on either show, though I'm hoping she will be occasionally.

    Supposedly she hasn't been on since 2015 because she commented (on Twitter I think) about what she felt were unsafe working conditions.

    I haven't been here in a long time, so what do you (the general you) think about;
    1. How Percy left.
    2. When & who might replace her?
    3. What do you think about the two-part season 4 finale & that cliffhanger?

    Keeping Shalita's work schedule and other projects in mind, I think the way Percy left leaves the door open for a one-off return. So, I'm quite happy with how that was worked out. We'll certainly miss the presence of City Mouse but she was barely present all season so it was a smooth transition.

    I don't think we need a replacement right away. I thought maybe Sydney could be the one but after that last episode I'm not sure she's the right fit.
    Sebastian is on the team now, and he and Gregorio have an awesome partnership going. She's teaching him the ropes.

    (also, best scene ever between those two: when she gets lost in that haunted house and yells for Sebastiaaaaaan! -- )

    First of all, haven't they tried to bring Pryde down enough, and it never stuck. And that cliffhanger -- I saw that coming from a mile away so it wasn't so much as a surprise as it was a given. How it will continue -- I don't know -- but I don't want to be in Blondies shoes next season. Or Sydney's.
