Today is April Fool’s Day. A day for fun pranks – but maybe not at the office. You don’t want something that was intended to be a harmless prank turn into a lawsuit. Findlaw recommends staying away from April Fool’s pranks in the your office, but, if you absolutely must celebrate April Fools’ Day at work, don’t do anything permanent to anyone’s property, or set up a prank that could potentially injure someone. Also stay away from your boss, underlings, and the office curmudgeon. You may not only be sued, but you may get fired for harassment.
In our office, the best advice is to stay away from the third floor, where certain people, who shall remain nameless, are known for their April Fools pranks !
