A man is suing his employer because he was paid for doing menial jobs.
The man of France, said that he was so bored at work that it caused him to be depressed.
44-year-old Frederic Desnard from Paris, said that he was forced to quit his job at a prestigious perfumes company after being subjected to boredom.
Desnard is asking for $400,000 in compensation. He claims that he quit his job at Interparfum because he was removed from his job as a manager and instead, he was ordered to do boring and menial jobs over a four-year period.
“I became depressed, I was ashamed to be paid to do nothing,” Desnard said. “The worse part of it was them denying this suffering,” he added.
However, according to the company, Desnard was fired after taking seven months sick leave.
Desnard is seeking about $400,000 in damages and missed pay, which include missing out on a potential promotion and paid vacation days.
