A MAN earned the right to be boring after getting fired for not going to work for a drink.
The ex-director, known only as Mr T, has received thousands in compensation after being sacked by his French employers for not participating in the “fun” office environment.
The consulting firm Cubik Partners fired Mr T for “professional inadequacy” for refusing to participate in “team building” activities with colleagues.
A Paris court ruled in Mr T’s favor this month after he took his former employer to court.
Court documents revealed the worker was asked to participate in social activities outside of business hours, including “weekend drinks.”
Mr T’s defense said this was the company’s tipsy culture “often leading to excessive alcoholism encouraged by colleagues who made very large quantities of alcohol available and peer-sponsored practices involving promiscuity, bullying and incitement to various.” include excesses”.
The aggrieved worker – who joined in 2011 and became director in 2014 before being fired a year later – said he had the right to refuse to take part.
A letter from his employer quotes “his rejection of the company’s management methods and criticism of their decisions”.
Cubik Partners also claimed it didn’t listen to employees and had become difficult to work with.
The court of appeal ruled that Mr T “could not be held responsible for his lack of integration into the fun environment” to which they said “excessive drinking on weekends”.
Cubik Partners was forced to pay Mr T £2,574.
Last year, a woman who was fired for calling her boss a “w*****” took her ex-employer to court and won.
The senior Australian recruiter said she was unfairly fired and is suing her employer, Celotti Workforce.
According to News.com.au, the 56-year-old woman allegedly called her boss the rude word softly, which resulted in her being fired from her position.
She was suspended and then fired after staff members complained that she had used obscene language and made negative comments about fellow junior staff.
She appealed to the Fair Work Commission to request her reinstatement, saying it was a wrongful dismissal.
Although the Commission did not find it appropriate for her to return to the company where she had worked for more than two years, she was awarded £3,200 in compensation.
