Remember that one radio news article CAM conveniently interrupted a couple arcs ago? Yeah, this is what Chaz missed.

He has to give back his new suit!? But he hasn't even had it that long! (well it doesn't FEEL very long anyway). Also, doesn't chaz get a say in this? I mean, if he now has rights similar to humans, doesn't he get the chance to say that he wants to continue working there (I mean, couldn't they renew his contract or something?)

The idea behind this law (Known as the "Two Year Rule") is for fresh young space-folks to get an opportunity to explore the universe and gain more work experience in a variety of fields, rather than immediately being tied down to just one job. As the name of the rule suggests, it's basically "An employer is obligated to let an employee go after 2 years, if that employee has not worked for at least four years total in at least two different areas of GTC Space." Until recently, this didn't apply to GELFs or Robots, since they're both artificial beings.

Since Chaz and other GELFs are now considered on equal footing with humans and aliens, however, it's become apparent that he's been working at the truckstop for three years, and needs to move on to a new job, otherwise Boss faces a fine for holding an employee longer than required.

Once an employee has about four or five years of work experience combined in at least two different regions of GTC Space, they may choose to reapply for a former job that they liked, or continue their galactic job search until they find something that sits with them.

So in short, Chaz can return to work at the Truckstop if he decides he really wants to, but he's going to have to work for at least a year somewhere else in the galaxy before he can do so.

Ah ok, that law actually seems pretty neat, just so long as Chaz is given a helping hand in seeking a new job, rather than just being given the boot. That bit in-between jobs can be depressing if you don't find a new job relatively quickly.

Yep, they get help! After an employee leaves their job, their boss is asked to provide a reference for them in order to help them locate a new job as quickly as possible. The jobseeker also gets financial support until they're able to find a new job.

Well, Joe shouldn't have any trouble with this law.
