Can You Get Fired for Napping on the Job? Answer May Surprise You…

If you’ve ever snoozed it up at work, this piece in The New York Post may catch your eye. An employee got caught taking a nap and the boss said if he’s ever caught again, he’ll get fired.

Although the employee may try to claim power naps boost productivity and energy, au contraire, as per “at will” employers.

Gregory Giangrande, chief HR officer at Time, Inc., indicates if the employer is “at will,” this means “your boss can fire you for any reason — or no reason at all, provided it isn’t for a legally protected reason like race, religion, age, etc.”

So, if you insist on taking a power nap during company time make sure it’s actually on your time instead such as your lunch break.

And don’t be overt about it — catch a quick snooze in your car or something and set the alarm on your mobile phone so it’s within the specified time frame.
