‘Sick’ fir­ing at pot biz

New York Post - - NEWS - Chris Perez

A Hell’s Kitchen wo­man is su­ing a le­gal-cannabis busi­ness owner, claim­ing he fired her be­cause she’s suf­fer­ing from Stage 4 breast cancer.

Pamela John­ston, 49, claims she was also fired for re­port­ing nu­mer­ous of­fice af­fairs and tat­tling on a wo­man who re­fused to wear un­der­wear.

John­ston, a for­mer se­nior vice pres­i­dent, served ex-in­vest­ment banker Les­lie Boc­skor and his cannabis-in­dus­try ad­vise­ment firm, Elec­trum Part­ners, with her suit on Thurs­day af­ter fil­ing it in Man­hat­tan fed­eral court.

John­ston ac­cuses the med­i­ca­land recre­ational-mar­i­juana big­wig of ter­mi­nat­ing her this sum­mer via e-mail, just weeks af­ter in­form­ing them of her di­ag­no­sis.

“Elec­trum and Mr. Boc­skor fired Ms. John­ston be­cause she was suf­fer­ing from cancer,” the suit says.

Boc­skor, who is the founder and owner of Elec­trum, de­clined to com­ment Thurs­day.
