FRONTIERS IN LITIGATION: Accountant Claims Wrongful Termination Essentially Because Her Job Was Too Hard.

Accountant Tammy Armstrong is claiming wrongful termination and intentional infliction of emotional distress because her employer asked her to do a lot of work. She also wants to be paid overtime because her employer had the audacity to claim her as a salaried worker and then paid her a salary.

Basically, if she wins, then every single junior office worker in law or finance should be able to sue their employers. Which makes me think she’s not going to win.

I dunno, the way things are going these days, anything’s possible.
