Lucas123 writes “The jury in a Minnesota-based wrongful employment case delivered a verdict ordering disk-drive manufacturer Seagate to pay $1.9 million to a former employee who uprooted his family and career at Texas Instruments in Dallas to move to Minnesota for a job that did not exist. The man was supposed to be developing solid state drive technology for Seagate but was laid off months later. ‘The reason that was given is that he was hired to be a yield engineer but the project never came to fruition,’ the former employee’s attorney said. ‘They didn’t care what effect it had on his career.’”
