TRENTON, N.J. – One of New Jersey’s top pork roll makers is being sued by the wife of an employee who claims her husband was fired for passing too much gas in the office.
The Home News Tribune reports that Louann Clem says in the lawsuit that her husband suffered serious consequences from gastric bypass surgery.Those included extreme gas and uncontrollable diarrhea.
The lawsuit alleges that Case Pork Roll Co. President Thomas Dolan complained about the side effects and told Rich Clem to work from home because he made the office smell.
His wife also worked at Case.
But owner Tom Grieb says neither of them was fired. He says business wasn’t good and the couple didn’t want to take a pay cut so they walked out.
The lawsuit seeks unspecified punitive and compensatory damages.
