Million dollar employment verdicts



Mike Fox of Jottings of an Employer's Lawyer has a listing of some recent ones, including $1.3 million to an insurance agent who said he was terminated because of his bipolar disorder, $2.4 million to a suburban Detroit teacher who said she got in trouble with the principal because being of Chinese descent she was uncomfortable patting people's backs, $1.75 million in a racial harassment case, and $9 million and $2.8 million in two separate whistleblower disputes. All in all, writes Fox, the "million dollar verdict seems to be alive and well."
