I found out a few weeks into a job that my employer had installed spyware (VNC
) on my work computer and had been watching what I've been doing (screen mirroring) since I started there. Is this legal? Should I confront him? This all makes me feel extremely uncomfortable. [more inside]

After reading this comment
some of us have wondered:
How common is it for employers to google prospective employees?

In California, upon leaving a job, an employer has under most circumstances at most 72 hours to pay the leaving employee their final paycheck or the employer gets fined.
Are there any similar laws which require investment/financial institutions to give the investor their funds within a certain amount of time of the request? (MI) [more inside]

After being fired (not laid off or downsized, but actually fired
) from a professional level job, how do you discuss this in interviews with new potential employers?

OK, guys, the smartass has been humbled. Last weekend I experienced what should have been a mildly stressful event for the average person. However, I have fairly advanced heart disease, and the anxiety put me in the emergency room with chest pains and arrhythmia despite my normal meds and my emergency tranquilizers.
The time has come for me to seriously consider disability, as totally distasteful as I find that. Does anyone know of some objective information sites, particularly regarding how to document my condition, beyond the basic primers that Google coughs up? ( Yes, I am pursuing this through my doctor, but I want a 'second opinion'. ;-P )

Okay, speaking of new jobs, I've got one ~
How do you research a potential employer, particularly if you don't know anyone who works there? After you learn all you can from their website, Googling their key players, stock analyst sites, and F*ed Company, where else do you look? I keep thinking there's gotta be a catch with my new potential employer, but nothing's turning up.
