James Lazarus, head of the firm’s executive office in the UK claims “bullying, excessive workload and a chaotic approach to work at the bank contributed to his insomnia, stress and depression.” He complained to his boss about being stressed in September 2007, a few months later took two months of sick leave and then returned in December 2007, when his workload got even worse. Lazarus took another leave in July 2008, came back in January 2009, left a year later and is now seeking £1million. Also, he’s looking for a new gig, if anyone knows of anything. [Telegraph]

    Who would hire this emotional sloth? “Head of executive office” sounds like a glorified executive assistant’s title.

    @8 – and, you know what secretaries are there for…
    JL has no game left, a milly is less than Toure was making per year. At least, the Canadian chick used her imagination when she sued that fat bastard who made her talk to investors.
