Pork Product Company Fires Man For Farting At Work

Case Pork Roll Co., one of New Jersey’s leading pork product makers who produces that famous New Jersey “Taylor ham” is being sued by the wife of an employee who was allegedly fired for farting too much in the office. The obvious question here is whether it was because he was consuming too much of the company’s product. I am quite sure I would be farting constantly if I ate pork all day.

The real reason Rich Clem’s bowels were so wonky though, was because of gastric bypass surgery which caused him “extreme gas and uncontrollable diarrhea.”

The odor was apparently so bad that the president of the company decided he had to go since the smell was over-powering the meat product and was not a welcome scent when clients would visit.

Rich’s wife Louann is suing under the federal Americans with Disabilities Act and the state “Law Against Discrimination” because of her husband who was 420 pounds and had an obesity disability.
