French Worker Wins Right To Be Boring

A worker in France has won the right to be 'boring'. 

A court has ruled the man, who was called Mr. T during the proceedings, was unfairly dismissed because he wouldn't to join colleagues in the pub. 

He'd worked as a senior advisor for a Paris based training firm that promised to apply 'a fun approach' to business. 

However Mr. T was sacked when he refused to attend staff social events and was branded 'boring', 'square' and 'difficult to work with' by managers. 

The French employment court ruled he should be paid 3,000 euro in compensation and will review his claim for 461 thousand euro in damages at a later date.
