in Firing,Human Resources

A New York bank investigated a worker over forged signatures on her expense reports. It eventually fired her and escorted her from the premises. She sued the bank, saying the investigation and firing caused her emotional distress. Too bad, the court said. The bank's actions were not extreme enough to support a claim for intentional infliction of emotional distress. (Abeles v. Mellon Bank Corp., No. 06683, New York App. Div., 2002)
