- A real estate broker is claiming to have been fired for not cheating on his wife
- The man claims he was let go after just four months on the job
- He says that he had to continually fend off the advances of a female colleague
Apparently, being a good looking guy has its disadvantages. Take real estate broker Regis Roumila, who is claiming that after just four months on the job he was terminated because he wouldn't cheat on his wife.
Roumila took a job at the exclusive Christie’s International Real Estate offices in New York City. He says that shortly after he started he was forced to fend off advances from a female colleague on a regular basis. He claims that his 29-year-old supervisor Sarine Atamian kept trying to hug and kiss him, while always asking him out for drinks and dinner, and staring at him “all hours of the day."
When he tried to complain to management, they ended up firing him after just four months for what he says are “vague, non-specific allegations” regarding “social interactions” in the workplace that were “looked down upon at Christie’s.” A Christie’s spokeswoman said the lawsuit “is without merit and we will respond accordingly.
