Worker Wins in Court After Calling His Boss a Bad Name

You may have called your boss an unflattering name or two — but hopefully you kept those insults to yourself. One Spanish worker got so heated in a money argument with his boss that he said exactly what was on his mind, and told his boss that he was (as translated) a "son of a bitch." He also tossed in a "crazy" for good measure. The worker was fired for his disrespectful outburst and then took the matter to court.

The first court ruled in the employer's favor, but the persistent worker won on appeal with the Superior Court of Justice of Catalonia. The ruling said the worker should either get his job back or receive $9,472; it's unknown which was chosen by the employer. Judge Sara Maria Pose Vidal explained the court's decision and said, "The social degradation of language has caused the expressions used by the plaintiff to become commonly used in certain settings, especially in arguments." Basically, the verdict is that the boss overreacted to the employee's insult.
