Revenge of the Paralegal
What recourse does a paralegal have when her bosses force her to assume the responsibilities of a recently departed receptionist, refuse to hire a replacement and then reprimand her for failing to timely perform her paralegal tasks? Finding another job is one option. Or, like this paralegal described in the Estrin Report, the paralegal could sue her bosses for causing "stomach distress, headaches and disagreeable fits of temper," as described in this complaint.
The Estrin Report asks:
Does this situation sound familiar to anyone out there? How would you have handled this situation?
What are your thoughts?
