Dirty Pics! Resign or Face Wrath?

Asking for a close friend. Said close friend accidentally left a USB drive in a work computer today that contained less than appropriate photo's of him on it. A co-worker found the drive and the photo's this evening. His boss is now giving him the option to resign this evening or face a full HR investigation in the morning. He recognizes this was a huge mistake on his part, but wonders what to do? Resign tonight, or face the wrath of HR in the morning?

HR wants my salary info

Tell them my salary or politely decline? On Friday, I learned about a job opportunity though an ex-colleague who would be my new boss. This person told me they're eager to fill the position and asked what salary I'm looking for. I ducked the salary question and, at their urging, applied online yesterday. Today I get a one-sentence email from an HR rep asking my current salary. I know salary negotiation has been covered on AskMeFi before, but I haven't seen this particular variation. No interview has happened. Doesn't salary talk usually happen later on? I have no idea how much this position pays, benefits, etc.; it could be better or worse than my current gig. The prospective position is grant-funded with a City agency. (Side question: are grant-funded positions risky?)

They're all gonna laugh at me

Is blunt criticism a warning for being fired? I work in a small office where 3 mistakes (mainly numerical errors) I made have been called embarrassing in a 5 month period. This is not a financial sector job. Yes I make more than 1 mistake a month, but what's bothering me is that this specific word has been used by the 3 people I work with most. [more inside]

How to "encourage" someone to delete work data?

If we have an employee who has access and/or copies of potentially sensitive data on their computer *outside* of the office (e.g. they've used their home computer to download email containing work info, spreadsheets, customer records, etc) and we terminate that person, is there any sort of form or confirmation that we could have them to sign to "ensure" that they will delete any such data? e.g. something along the lines of "I certify that I will delete all company/work-related data on any of my personal equipment" I realize there's no way to *guarantee* that they'll do it. I'm just wondering if there's any sort of potential benefit to create such a form for them to sign off on (e.g. if we find out later that they sent a copy of x info to a competitor *after* they were terminated, will having such a signoff help us at all in court, for example)

Does two weeks notice include time spent on jury duty?

If a person gives two weeks notice at a job, but those two weeks include potential jury duty, should you extend the two weeks notice to, say, three? Or is two weeks sufficient, since the employer still gets the full two weeks to find a replacement, whether I'm there or not?

How to address spelling in HR questionnaire

I've been beating myself up over this, wondering what to do. Send an email with a new corrected copy? Ignore it? Let them know I found the mistake and apologize? [more inside]

Is my new tardiness policy fair?

I am seeking feedback on the fairness of a new tardiness policy I instituted at my company. I own an IT services firm that also has a retail storefront (the more traditional computer repair shop model). We have had a situation with chronic tardiness, to the point where on a recent Saturday, at three minutes before opening, I was the only one there (whereas four people were scheduled that day). I have now instituted what I believed to be a fair and generous policy, and some don't like it as they say it is too strict. Please read on for the policy... [more inside]
