Here at LAW, no two days are the same for our staff. However, we’ve all experienced jobs where one day seems to blur into another and the repetition of the same tasks day in day out leave you counting down the minutes until you can clock out.

But Frenchman Frederic Desnard is taking things to a whole new level, suing his former employer, a perfume manufacturer, for professional “bore-out”. Desnard claims that he was given menial tasks which failed to stimulate him and resulted in him becoming stressed and unfit for work. He is suing his former employer for €360,000 (£282,000) in compensation for the “descent into hell” which he claims ruined his health.
