The hosts of The Project have butted heads over the etiquette of attending after-work social functions and whether employees are still on the clock.
The debate on Sunday night’s program was sparked after a segment discussing a French citizen who took his employer to court after he was sacked for not taking part in ‘fun’ office activities.
A Paris court ruled the man, known only as ‘Mr T’, was within his rights to refuse invites to after-hours events including weekend drinks and he was rewarded $5,000 in compensation, though he also intended to sue.
The man’s mini-uprising caused The Project’s Hamish MacDonald to label him ‘an absolute bore’ but other panelists weren’t so quick to agree.
