Just in time for Valentine’s Day comes this heartwarming story from Germany:
In a historic judgment, a German court today ruled that groping a woman’s breasts while at work does not constitute a ‘sackable’ offense. Particularly if done only once. A 37 year old man who had been fired in 2012 after a female employee working at the same garage as him complained of him trying to take undue liberties with her, he was sacked. Saying that he was upset at being thrown the door, the employee approached the court.
Judges of the Federal Labor Court sitting in Erfurt said that the car mechanic who groped the 26-year-old cleaner at his workplace while saying ‘these look like fun’ should not have been dismissed.
My advice? Don’t.
