EMPLOYEE FIRED AFTER SENDING ALL CAPS EMAILS
A WOMAN WORKING FOR NEW ZEALAND’S PRO HEALTH WAS FIRED AFTER SENDING SEVERAL “CONFRONTATIONAL” EMAILS TO FELLOW EMPLOYEES STERNLY DETAILING HOW TO FILL OUT FORMS. I’ll stop using caps now; it hurts my eyes.
According to employees, Vicki Walker used all caps in her emails and often highlighted words in bold and added red for extra emphasis(and pain). After someone on the receiving end complained about the emails, Walker was promptly fired. However, Walker later sued Pro Health, citing wrongful termination, and won the case and took home $17,000. HOW ABOUT THAT? Source
