Bored at work? You could always try suing your employer.
That's what Frédéric Desnard, a 44-year-old Parisian worker, has done.
He filed a lawsuit against Interparfums, a perfume and cosmetics company, demanding more than $400,000 in compensation for being "bored out" of his $90,000 a year job, according the Washington Post, citing French media.
Interparfums did not immediately respond to CNBC's request for comment.
Desnard alleges that his employer demoted him from a high-profile position in the company in an effort to convince him to voluntarily quit his job. He was later fired after a car crash caused him to go on prolonged sick leave.
