I hope to someday write a book about the stories I've heard from people who think they have employment claims. One of my favorites was the guy who wanted to wear roller skates to work as a disability accommodation. Probably the most common thing I hear is people who get fired without any prior write-ups who believe that their lack of prior notice or progressive discipline automatically gives them viable claims for wrongful termination. But that's not necessarily true.
