If this woman wins her lawsuit, it opens the door for literally MILLIONS of people to sue their companies. So for your sake, let's hope she wins. Even though she won't.
Andrea DeGerolamo of Berlin, New Jersey is suing her former company because her bosses made her drive to work during RUSH HOUR.
She was working at a company called Fulton Financial in 2012 and started having anxiety . . . which was worse when she was in traffic. So she asked her bosses if she could avoid rush hour.
And her plan was . . . she'd come into work AFTER morning rush hour and leave BEFORE night rush hour. She didn't propose, say, coming in extra early so she could leave at 3:00 P.M. She just proposed a shorter work day for herself.
Obviously her bosses said no, and she wound up getting fired about six months later.
Now she's suing the company for unspecified damages for discrimination . . . since she says her anxiety was a disability.
