Worst part is that the contract could only be viewed as a slideshow with pop-up ads.

I admit with the apt amount of embarrassment to having watched far more of the Buzzfeed ghost hunting show than is excusable during the height of Covid boredom.

So "ghosts" is a get out of the office free policy? I understand that language is included to compel them to work, but anyone can say ghosts if they don't have another valid reason to avoid the office?

My company would have required a cumbersome process to claim a ghost exception and a tedious process to validate or disprove the claims and then outsourced that work to East Asia.

/Nothing against East Asia as I've worked with some smart and professional folks from that area, but it seems to be the outsourcing destination of choice as of late.
//Can we call it the Casper clause?
///Who you gonna call?

Headline would have been better if all of the protections were what one would typically expect.

This is terrible news. Where will I be able to get my FLeckuiJ brand rechargeable hand warmers and QEEBGOOZ brand USB cables?
