US man sues company for surprise birthday party, wins $450,000 compensation

Kevin Berling, man from Kentucky, US, sued his laboratory company for unwanted birthday party in 2019 gave him anxiety and panic attacks.

The 29-year-old accused the company of bais as he had urged the office manager not to throw a birthday party for him when he first joined the company in 2018. 

Despite Berling’s request, the company, which conducts COVID-19 tests, threw him a surprise party in August, triggering a panic attack. He then quickly left the party, practised breathing exercises and finished his lunch in his car.

Sometimes, its important to post the full story!

The lawsuit notes that Mr Berling was “confronted and criticised” at a meeting the following day, where he was accused of “stealing his co-workers joy” and “being a little girl”. The tense meeting prompted a second panic attack, after which the company sent him home for the remainder of 8 August and 9 August.
On 11 August, Gravity Diagnostics fired him, citing concerns about workplace safety. His lawsuit alleged that the company discriminated against him because of a disability and unfairly retaliated against him for asking that his request be accommodated.
After a two day trial at the end of March, the jury awarded him $450,000, including $300,000 for emotional distress and $150,000 in lost wages.

Where did you get this story? Twitter? Facebook? Whatever it is, if some blog is ignoring key details while publishing an article, then it is not reliable (Same reason why its better to check multiple sources while sharing something)
