Twenty-three Bank of America employees were traveling on the US Airways jet that crash-landed in the Hudson River a few weeks ago. Their trip was canceled, in a manner of speaking. They all survived. But that’s not the moral of the story. B of A was out-of-pocket for twenty-three air fares and money is money.
What’s a good employer to do? Demand that the employees, not the airline, repay the company. Once the currency had dried, of course. Wet twenties might stick together and give a bank customer an unearned bonus. Not like the ones B of A and its brethren handed out to themselves for losing billions.
