Woman Fired For Using CAPS and Red Text In Emails At Workplace

Procare Health fired Vicki Walker from her position as a financial controller because she sent her emails out with block capitals, bold typeface and red text in her emails. It caused disharmony in the workplace.
What Vicki told the New Zealand Herald though, is that it wasn't a series of emails, but rather one single email which was used in the evidence against her:
The email, which advises her team how to fill out staff claim forms, specifies a time and date highlighted in bold red, and a sentence written in capitals and highlighted in bold blue. It reads: "To ensure your staff claim is processed and paid, please do follow the below checklist."
I admit its tough to gauge what people are actually trying to say in emails because you can't hear the tone and stuff. I suppose she should learn from this experience and only use block capitals when she is shouting inside. Maybe she actually was?
