Waitress Sues Restaurant For Short Skirt Requirement
We think it’s safe to say this former waitress is not a fan of the recent “breastaurant” trend.
Courtney Scaramella is suing her former employer “O’Hara’s Restaurant and Pub” in Westwood, California, over a revealing uniform she says objectified female employees.
“I was appalled, I was offended, I kind of hoped it was a joke,” Scaramella told NBC4. “They had a couple of ideas and this was one of them that they thought would increase foot traffic or something like that.”
She now wants compensation for sexual harassment, wrongful termination, stress and unpaid wages.
The suit claims the skimpy uniforms subjected female workwea to potential abuse from customers. The suit also alleges female employees were forced to wear a short, plaid skirt secured by a strip of Velcro, which “left employees open to embarrassing situations.”
An attorney for “O’Hara’s” said Scaramella quit her job and was not terminated. Scaramella said after she complained the requirement to wear the skirt was removed but her hours were cut significantly.
