Lawsuit Abuse Knows No Boundaries
It looks like America’s sue-happy, blame-game philosophy is rearing its ugly head in the U.K. these days, too. A British lawyer is suing her employer for 800,000 pounds (that’s more than 1.1 million U.S. dollars), because they failed to support her during a conflict with another, more junior employee.
We all deal with conflict and tension in the workplace from time to time. But if we all sued our employers every time we felt stressed out, would there be any place left to work? Just like with the spilled coffee: get a grip, not a lawyer.
