A former producer of Montel Williams' talk show is suing U.S. TV network CBS amid allegations of unfair dismissal. Erin Primmer has accused the network, which airs Montel, of firing her from her $110,000 (GBP55,000)-a-year job after she collapsed on set in March 2007 from a brain aneurysm. She was given the all-clear from her doctor to return to work in April that year, but claims she was made aware by the executive producer that her contract would not be renewed because she was not capable of dealing with the stress of producing such a show. According to legal documents obtained by website TMZ.com, Primmer alleges the executive told her "CBS needed someone capable of handling the pressure, and that the coming year was going to be worse." Primmer, who had been an employee of the network since August 2005, adds in the lawsuit that her sacking was "a clear violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act, New York State and New York City law". A spokesperson for CBS has yet to comment on the allegations, which were filed in a New York court earlier this week (begs11Feb08).
