A US man is suing his employer over being tasered dozens of times over nine months as a practical joke.

    Amazing what some business owners will condone as acceptable behavior. Seriously, if I disliked an employee enough to taser him, I think I'd find a way to fire him instead.

    This is not only workplace abuse but assault with a weapon (potentially deadly for some individuals)! Criminal charges are appropriate here!

    If this horror show happened in a civilized, large and modern business that would of course have an HR department, investigation and action would have been swift. Clearly this is not a business of that calibre but a bunch of ignorant people mascerading as management without any clue of fundamental hr and management best practices or dignity, wellness, and respect. I am an executive HR leader and if my union counterparts read this they would say this is a classic reason why unions exist.

    There's no way this could happen in a company with a trained hr professional. It would be immediately labelled as a problem and dealt with either through training or disciplinary action. This is one of the problems with small family/individual companies - they don't have the training or base knowledge to handle these situations.
