I work for a "Right to Work" company. I manage 36 employees. Even though we are RTW, I must have clear documented evidence of why I want to let someone go before HR will even think about acting. The potential lawsuit is just too costly. It is true that I can let someone go without cause, but that does not stop the potential lawsuit. Companies will settle before they litigate and the settlement is generally $35k. So, the first thing they ask me, "do you have clear documentation of all offenses and corrective actions?" And after that, "do you have supporting evidence from other employees?"

Dude, wait and see? Do you have a clue as to how costly this shit is to fight? The State has stepped in and forced him into supervised visits with his own daughter. Can you imagine the emotional turmoil of something like this happening to you? And guess what? At the end of it, he'll be cleared and The State will turn and walk away. They will not even apologize. In fact, there will now be animosity because they "lost". Wait and see... are you fucking kidding me?
