An employment lawyer is using her blog to speculate on what plaintiffs could recover for management gaffes portrayed on the hit NBC TV show The Office.
Julie Elgar, a labor and employment lawyer with Ford & Harrison in Atlanta, has new recovery figures each week, according to the ABA Journal.
Here’s one example: She concludes that the company should set aside about $700,000 for coercing two lesbian employees to kiss during sexual harassment training.
This week she sees seven-figure damages for Michael Scott’s latest blunders on her blog, That’s What She Said, including his re-enactment of a flasher incident.
