    That's you. Ms. Davis had only been on the job for a couple of weeks, never held a position like this before....didn't have any training on dealing with the media. She was there to answer everyone's questions and she did it very well.

If somebody calls my line and starts going on about numbers and fiscal quarters, I don't start discussing my company's information with them. I move them to the appropriate department within the company.

    Then again, I actually have a job - so I understand these basic concepts. Why don't you?
    Can the snarky remarks when you obviously have never been in the answeirng service business. Yes, lots of comanies would work just as you claim. Except that 1: This is not the kind of businesses you have obviously ever worked in. 2: She didn't tell Hannity anything about her companies workings until after she was fired. Before then she did her job by answering the questions that Hannity put to her about Obamacare. Like she was suppose to. In the answering service business you answer questions and take messages. In this case since it was apparently dedicated answering questions about Obamacare. So no messages more than likely. Just answering from a script. For an answering service, be it a hotline or not you do what you are suppose to regardless of who calls. In this case answer questions about Obamacare. If I attempted pass Hannity along to my HR department or my boss I would have been fired for not doing my job. How do I know this? I 1: Work in an answering service business and 2: I actually do answer questions regarding the health care exchange.

    No, it isn't truly the private sector. When dealing with government contractors it becomes that blurred area where it is public/private. The taxpayers are paying for it.

    Wrong

    An employee working for a company that has a contract with the govt is a private employee, not a civil servant.

    After all if the government contractor failed to train the operators in how to conduct calls from the media and failed to recognize the potential of such calls occurring due to all the interest being shown in the media over Obamacare. We shall see.......
    I doubt that any legal case would be successful. The only issue is whether the employee should have received disciplinary action short of termination, but courts typically grant broad latitude to employers.

    Moreover, the role of a hotline is typically to answer questions about a product or service (features, costs, implementation, enrollment, etc.). It is not intended to answer questions about how others feel about the product/service. It is not intended to be a substitute for the public relations/media relations functions of a company.

    Sarcastically assuming you work for the government in your hypothetical scenario is assuming that some "she" does work for the government?

    I didn't call her a civil servant. But the money backing her paycheck comes from the Taxpayers. Economists sometimes call these part private and part public, hybrids. hybrids are not designed to manage chunks of the economy, nor your classic private-sector firms that sink or swim according to their own strength. Instead they are confusing entities that seem to fit between one world and another to suit their own purposes.
