    Now is it the nakedness or the bad-mouthing that will get you jail time?

    You can do time for either one separately — it’s just a matter of degree. But if you do both simultaneously, you get a reality series.

    Obviously you should not sue for wrongful dismissal while you are looking for a job. in many jusrisdictions you have quite enough time (it could be up to two years from the dismissal date). So apply for unemployment, see a labor lawyer to figure out what your chances are, start looking – but don’t initiate the legal action until you have a new job already.

    The lessons, if there are any: always go to work assuming that you’ll be bringing home your belongings in a box that evening.

    Loyalty is for people, not organizations.

    And always network like crazy, so you have a place to go or at least contacts to help you out.
