Fred's been a lot of close call. So is there a job that guarantees never getting fired even if I:
1. Oversleep and late for work hour
2. Sleep at work hour
3. Drink beer at work hour
4. Catching that Pikachu at work hour
5. Play dead at work hour
Let me know, thanks

Yes it's called being a stay-at-home wife/husband/parent.

Until they break up with you for being a lazy git.
That would be similar to termination, I would think?

As for the job itself, self-employment is the answer you seek.
You have to establish your own work schedule, follow your own work ethic, follow up and schedule meetings with customers at appropriate times to avoid clashes due to your oversleeping/adventurous activities.
The problem is that the majority of the world operates on a 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM schedule (except for those in India, they seem to work from 11:00 AM until 12:00-1:00 AM the next day).

Yeah, this might be more exact into the IT sector than anything else but it’s not uncommon for them to try to “overlap” with EST by an hour or so.
Then again, I find some coworkers that are in Noida, India that are often responsive at 2-3 AM their time.
It all varies depending on the company and the individual’s work ethics.
Still some weird as hell sleep schedules going on there.

depends on the country more than the job. in America you can get fired for anything and thanks to a dirty law they don't have to give a reason. however, in Japan, you are required to take nap and rest breaks while at work. and I'm certain other countries have different and/or similar laws.

Get into the XXXXX's union or in a government union. You have to really screw up to get fired at times.

You're referring to "at will" employment, and it's not a dirty law. It basically says that for both parties, employer and employee, you can hire, fire, or quit at any time as long as there's no contract or anything that can be construed as a contract. A contract can include language that talks of a "trial period" or "probationary period" or speak of employment in future tense.

You have no fucking clue how much of a pain in the ass it is to write yourself around this when writing things like employee handbooks or notices of temporary layoffs, etc.

AND THEN THERE'S UNEMPLOYMENT AND DISCRIMINATION LAWS.....

Basically, unless you fire someone by saying "hey, there's no work", have to explain it to the government, and generally things side with the employee. Gross negligence? Probably the employers fault. Steals from the office (this happened on my watch), "well... was it in the handook that stealing is against company policy?"

..................

Seriously.

When it comes to hiring, you can be considered negligent of you don't follow up n an employee's past, but also you can be screwed if you do without asking for their consent. It's a real quagmire to navigate...

so..... yeah.. The laws about hiring and firing are not quite so "nasty" as you think.
