Some years ago, I had a federal case of age, color, race, and gender discrimination in New York.
At her deposition, my client testified, under oath, that she told her boss, “Go fuck yourself” and then was fired shortly thereafter.
The now deceased federal Judge dismissed the case on Defendants’ summary judgment motion. His honor found, generally, that, when you tell your boss to go fuck himself, you no longer have a viable discrimination/retaliation claim for the jury to decide.
If you’re suffering from discrimination at work, it is important that you reach out to an employment lawyer immediately before you allow it to get so intolerable that you wind up doing something regretful like cursing out your boss.
That is to say, you can be legitimately terminated for hurling f bombs at your boss.
If you or someone you know is suffering at work, contact The Law Office of David H. Rosenberg, P.C.
