No worker likes to lose pay -- especially when it's associated with unused sick pay or vacation time. But the case of former Bell, Calif., city prosecutor Eric Eggena is raising eyebrows because of the extraordinary amount he's seeking -- $837,000.

Eggena is suing his former employer, claiming that Bell owes the amount for unpaid severance, and 329 unused sick and vacation days, the Los Angeles Times reports.
