DJ Wins Case Against Infinity Broadcasting

DJ Who Complained About Perfume Gets $10.6M

The verdict did not smell sweet for Infinity Broadcasting. Country music DJ, Erin Weber was recently awarded $10.6M after she complained that her co-workers perfume was making her sick. From BLR...

The jury's award includes $7 million in punitive damages, $2 million in mental anguish and emotional distress, and $1.6 million for past and future compensation for former country music DJ Erin Weber, who accused Infinity Broadcasting of disability discrimination and retaliation.

Weber alleged a co-worker's perfume caused breathing problems and damaged her vocal chords. She said she developed the sensitivity after she worked in a broadcast booth where a guest from a previous show had spilled acetone on the carpet, according to the Detroit Free Press.

Weber was later fired, which she believes was in retaliation for her complaint with the EEOC. However, Infinity claims that she was fired for not showing up to work for a shift.
