“You snooze, you lose — you sue”

The New York Post just reported about three overweight people — one a hospital dispatcher, the second a bus driver, and the third a “would-be city garbage man,” who were fired (or not hired) allegedly because they fell asleep (or had a history of doing so) on the job.

And are now suing!

The Post said “You snooze, you lose — you sue.”

Why are they suing and for what?

You can read my article just published in Above The Law here – it is entitled “Shocking! Fired For Sleeping On The Job — And Awarded Damages!
