I earned the ‘right to be boring’ after being fired for not turning up – now I’ve received thousands in compensation

A MAN has earned the right to be bored after being sacked for not turning up for work.

A former director, known only as Mr T, has won thousands in compensation after he was sacked by his French employers for not participating in a “fun” office environment.

Consultancy business Cubik Partners fired Mr T for being “professionally insufficient” after he refused to participate in “team building” activities with colleagues.

A Paris court ruled in Mr T’s favor this month after he sued his former employer.

Court documents revealed the employee was asked to attend social activities outside of work hours, including “weekend drinks”.

Mr T’s defense said this led to the company’s “excessive alcoholism encouraged by co-workers who dispense large amounts of alcohol and practices by co-workers that encourage lewdness, violence and various excesses”.

The wronged employee, who joined in 2011 and became director in 2014 before being fired a year later, said he had the right to refuse to participate.

The employer’s letter stated “disagreement with the company’s management methods and criticism of its decisions.”

Cubik Partners also claimed that it did not listen to its employees and made it difficult to work with them.

The Stop Court ruled that Mr T “cannot be blamed for not being integrated into the entertainment environment”, which he said included “excessive drinking at weekends”.

Cubik Partner was ordered to pay Mr T £2,574.

A woman who was fired last year for calling her boss a “w*****” sued her former employer and won.

A large Australian employer said it had been unfairly dismissed and the employer sued Celotti Workforce.

According to News.com.au, the 56-year-old allegedly called out her boss by muttering profanities, which saw her fired.

He was suspended and later fired after employees complained that he used profanity and made negative comments about other junior employees.

He applied to the Fair Work Commission for reinstatement, saying it was unfair dismissal.

Although the commission did not see it fit for him to return to the company, where he had worked for more than two years, he was awarded £3,200 compensation.
