No firing drunk workers in Peru

A top court in Peru has ruled that employers can not fire workers for being drunk on the job.

The Constitutional Tribunal ordered that Pablo Cayo be given his job back as a janitor for the municipality of Chorrillos, which fired him for being intoxicated at work.

The firing was excessive because even though Cayo was drunk, he did not offend or hurt anybody, Fernando Calle, one of the justices, said on Wednesday.

Remind me to stay out of taxicabs in Peru and away from construction sites. . .
