We love a good tale of a nasty manager getting theirs in the end. This particular manager sounds like a grade A bully. The manager exercised zero empathy for an employee going through a heartbreaking loss. On top of displaying zero human empathy, the manager proceeded to make the devastated employee's life miserable by blatantly targeting them for a whole bunch of nothing. Fortunately, the employee was able to get HR involved, and ultimately put together enough evidence that ultimately contributed toward the manager's ultimate downfall.
Check out another glorious tale of revenge with these naive young business owners that foolishly fired the man with the patents.
