To what extent should one's personal life affect/influence one's career? Should a man be fired from his job because he is physically abusive to his wife?
A blog reader asked this question yesterday based on a present real life situation. There is evidence of domestic violence in his home and now that his employers are in the know, his job is on the line. I discussed this with some friends and opinions were split. Some felt he should be fired for ethical reasons and for the sake of consequences, among other reasons. Some felt that one's personal life and work life are two separate entities that ought not collide in any way; employers should stay out of the matter except it's affecting his job directly. Others had other other opinions besides these.
So what are your own thoughts on this?
