Intel did not damage employee's psyche

Kourosh Hamidi loses Californian appeal

A year ago From The Register No. 70. An ex-Intel employee has lost his case at appeal that the company "injured his psyche" during his employment with the company. Last year, the Workers' Compensation Board in California found that Hamidi had suffered "an industrial injury to his psyche", resulting in temporary disability. But Intel appealed the finding and now the Appeals Board has found in its favour. Intel claimed that Hamidi had engaged in "a pattern of deliberate mis-representation and fraudulent efforts". Hamidi runs an organisation called FACE Intel which co-ordinates legal actions against the giant chip monster. At press time, there was no information as to whether he would appeal the Appeal decision. ®
