Frederic Desnard was rewarded with 40,000 euros (about 14 million forints) after his work was so boring that he was already at the expense of his health.
In 2020, a former employee of a luxury perfume brand had to pay busy compensation after it turned out that the man’s work was so boring that his health had deteriorated as a result.
Desnard was ill for seven months and went into a coma for days after one day his body became so overwhelmed with gray everyday life that he became ill while driving.
Every day, in about 20 to 40 minutes, he did the work he had done for four years. He described this as if he had gone to hell.
“I no longer had the energy for anything. I was guilty and ashamed to get paid for nothing. I felt like I was invisible to the company. ” The French man said he took the matter to court and the court finally granted him justice.
According to a study by Mental Health UK, this so-called “bore-out” phenomenon is very similar to someone burning out, for example, from the stress caused by their work, which also has mental and physical symptoms.
However, the French man had psychological problems that then physically affected him and eventually made him bed.
