The Labor Department has decided to fire a long-time employee after keeping him on administrative leave for almost two years. Bob Whitmore was placed on leave after a confrontation with his supervisor in 2007. But during his suspension, he continued to receive his $150,000 dollar annual salary. Diana Veilleux, partner at the law firm Shaw, Bransford, Veilleux and Roth, joins us for our weekly Legal Loop.
