Man won 450k panic work birthday

A Kentucky man who was fired for having a panic attack during his office birthday party recently won a lawsuit of $450,000. The man requested his co-workers NOT throw him a party because of his anxiety, but they did it anyway.

The man had asked his former employers not to throw him a birthday party because he has anxiety and experiences panic attacks as a result of being the center of attention. Unfortunately, his employers say they forgot his request and threw him a birthday party anyway. He opted to eat lunch in his car instead of attending.

On Twitter, many people are saying that they hope this case gives employers 450,000 reasons to really take workers' mental health seriously.
