Remember the radio host who says she was sickened by a colleague's perfume and then fired unjustly when she complained? She was originally awarded 10.6 million dollars in a federal lawsuit. Then a judge knocked that back to $814,000. Now, that same judge has increased the award to $1.2 million (link to article no longer working, sorry!) in damages plus $423,807 for legal costs.
And in a related story from Connecticut (link no longer working, sorry!), a woman with "multiple chemical sensitivity disorder" is suing city officials who she says have failed to address her co-workers use of fragrance products:
Gorman, the town clerk's senior records analyst, says in a Jan. 30 amendment to her original lawsuit that fellow staffers are intentionally exposing her to scented products and city officials are trying to embarrass her by conducting "sniff tests" of co-workers when she complains of an odor.
She says city officials are violating her rights under the Americans with Disabilities Act.
