《中英對照讀新聞》Security Guard Fired for Seeing Ghosts安全警衛因見鬼被開除
A judge ruled that a former security guard who was fired for seeing ghosts cannot be denied unemployment benefits.
According to a court ruling, the former guard’s allegation of apparitions does not constitute misconduct. The issue started when Wade Gallegos alerted his supervisor that ghosts were haunting a neighborhood he was guarding. The supervisor arrived at the scene, where Gallegos showed him where the ghosts were still apparently standing. The supervisor claimed he saw nothing and fired Gallegos five hours later.
The company found no signs of drug use or alcohol. But it challenged Gallegos’ application for unemployment benefits, arguing he was guilty of misconduct. However, the judge ruled, seeing ghosts is not the type of misconduct that can disqualify Gallegos from receiving benefits.
