Don’t like your cubicle? Here’s $150K.

Everybody knows the Americans with Disabilities Act Amendments Act (ADAAA) of 2008 greatly widened the scope of potential lawsuits for employers to worry about.

But if I were to tell you that your employee could use the ADAAA to sue you based on a bad case of cubicle claustrophobia, would you believe me?

You know what?  Let’s forget the hypotheticals, here.  It happened. And the employee received a settlement of $150,000.  (My reaction?  I wish I had thought of it first.)
