In what would be most managers’ worst nightmare, one of the characters on the popular NBC sitcom, “The Office,” has started writing a blog on the dysfunctional antics in his workplace. Fortunately he hasn’t quite mastered the Internet and writes his posts on a Microsoft Word document that doesn’t leave his computer.

Employment lawyer Julie Elgar’s blog on “The Office” does make it to the Internet. After each episode, Elgar, an associate at labor and employment boutique Ford & Harrison in their Atlanta office, subjects the buffoonery of the show’s hapless employees to legal scrutiny in a blog she calls “That’s what she said” at http://www.hrheroblogs.com/thatswhatshesaid/. Every Friday morning she assesses management’s liability for the characters’ inappropriate behavior on the previous night’s episode and estimates the cost of potential litigation.
