N.Y. seminary employee alleges boss stinks

Feb. 7, 2010 at 2:07 PM

NEW YORK, Feb. 7 (UPI) -- An employee of New York's Jewish Theological Seminary said her boss stinks in more ways than one.

Roberta Feinsmith, 67, of Fairlawn, N.J., and an executive assistant at the seminary for 12 years, filed suit alleging that Alan Cooper, her supervisor since 2007 emitted "constant barrages of ... flatulence" in her work space, the New York Post reported Sunday.

Further, Cooper staged yelling and cursing "fits" on a daily basis, the suit alleges.

Feinsmith said she objected to Cooper's behavior, but then discovered Cooper had sent a mass e-mail in May to the seminary's staff recommending that older employees quit.

The e-mail allegedly said that baby boomers "have created a kind of bottleneck in the work world. The frustration this poses for the young and talented should be obvious."

The next day, Cooper fired her, Feinsmith said.

JTS has not returned calls for comment.
