COPY-Employee sues over co-worker's perfume

Associated Press - July 5, 2007 8:33 AM ET

DETROIT (AP) - A Detroit city employee who says she can't work because a co-worker's perfume is too strong is suing the city.

Susan McBride has filed suit under the Americans with Disabilities Act. She seeks a ban on scents in the planning department, where she works.

The city has declined comment.

McBride has worked in the planning department since 2000 but says her problems started a year ago when the co-worker transferred into her department.

In addition to wearing a strong perfume, the co-worker plugged in a scented room deodorizer. The lawsuit says McBride had to go home sick.

The co-worker later agreed to stop using the deodorizer but has kept using perfume.
