Luo was fired by her employer, an educational technology company, citing the feline’s sudden appearances, which she said damaged the teacher’s “image”.
Additionally, the company alluded to a past instance where the teacher showed up 10 minutes late to class and accused Luo of engaging in “non-teaching” activities during class.
She then challenged the decision in arbitration. However, the employer refused to comply with the order and even denied Luo compensation for his unfair dismissal.

The teacher received compensation of $6,000.
