Today's Wall Street Journal has a fun article on e-mail blasts that employees send to their colleagues on their way out the door — sometimes voluntarily, sometimes involuntarily. You have to marvel at the creativity of people who manage to leave in style. Take a couple of minutes to read the article. It will remind you of something that you've seen in your own work experience (or wanted to do yourself but didn't have the nerve).
Since this is an employment law blog, I suppose that I ought to try to draw a relevant lesson on how management should handle such things. Well, in my view the best approach is that you can't really stop it, so accept the good-natured ones with a smile, and ignore the angry ones — it will blow over quickly.
