Speaking of Wasting Time - Let's Sue the Employee

At least that seems to be the idea of one British employer, Coleman Bennett International which is suing one of its salesman who instead of spending time making sales was allegedly making passes at the personal assistant to the Managing Director. The company calculates its loss at just over 450,000 pounds and seeks about half from its former straying employee. According to the story, Love work, not colleagues in the Hindustan Times, the company is claiming breach of contract from the distracted salesperson. The amount is based in part on the number of phone calls and text messages sent by the employee. Given American employers' aversion to court, it seems unlikely that we will see such suits this side of the pond, but you know there is all that time being spent on Fantasy Football!
