Worker fired for her 'distracting' figure? (Liberals´war on modesty/religion/morals)
GMA/ Yahoo ^ | May 22, 2012 | ASHLEY JENNINGS

Posted on 05/22/2012 7:04:12 AM PDT by Righting

New Jersey Woman Says She Was Fired For Being Too Busty (ABC News) A New Jersey woman says she was fired from her job after her manager told her to "tape her breasts" down, and now has filed suit against the company claiming religious and sexual discrimination. Former data entry worker Lauren Odes said that after two days with Native Intimates, a midtown Manhattan wholesale lingerie company, a supervisor told her the store owners were not happy with her outfit, suggesting it was too "distracting." "When I first started working there, I asked what the dress code was, and I was just told to look around and see what everyone else was wearing," Odes said in a press conference Monday. "So I did. The dress was very casual athletic wear to business attire." Odes said the company owners are Orthodox Jews who were offended by her attire.

If this is, so called “religious discrimination...” I propose another more appropriate terminology: SECULAR DISCRIMINATION!!!

Do you really think this is worthy of “Breaking News?” Intersting, perhaps; but not breaking news, hardly.

I see that Gloria Allred is involved, again. She seems endlessly involved waiving the bloody rag for clients who obviously can't pay her. Where does her money come from...

I understand the dress code. “...Odes said the company owners are Orthodox Jews who were offended by her attire...”

Since she’s already hired Allred she has already proven her self to be a skank!

first of all the girl is butt ugly with massive fake boobs that look ridiculous.

Second of all, businesses have the right, and have always had the right to make their employees wear a uniform.

This girl has no more “right” to wear that dress than she does to show up for work in a bikini or a chicken suit!

case closed, Gloria the human debris losses again.

"Where does her money come from..."

A big portion comes from cases you never hear about. She hooks up with these clients and sends the wealthy defendant a letter threatening suit. She apologizes about all the unfavorable publicity filing the suit will create and hints it will be an absolute media circus. She then points out that all this could be avoided if the defendant would just settle pre-suit and no one would ever have to hear about it. Bingo, big settlement. That's how these kind of lawyers works. Sleazy but lucrative.

Exactly, unless she is a singer, as in Christina Aguilera... there is no point in looking like that.

I have unfortunately had to counsel more than a few female employees over the years for improper attire on the job.

The task is always unpleasant, embarrassing, and requires a high degree of tact and diplomacy.

“You better tape up them boobies, Sweetheart!” will getcha into trouble every time. Like it’s clipped from a textbook on how NOT to do this.

OK, so here’s me reading this article:

Hmm, wore what everyone else was wearing...
Orthodox Jews, huh? Well, we’ll see...
Gray T-shirt and black jeggings with rain boots to work...
“tape down my breasts”, OK, that’s over the line...
Made her put on a bathrobe, well that would suck...
“go out and buy a sweater that “went to her ankles”, that’s over the line, too...
while out shopping for the sweater they call her and fire her, that was really wrong if true...
Now, attorney Gloria Allred has filed suit... WHOA,WHOA, WAIT, WHO’S HER LAWYER? Oh HELL no! NOT GUILTY!

Good grief....rather than making her top half larger, she should have gone for liposuction to make her fat a*## smaller.

Or found a treadmill.

Sounds like the Reverend Jackson's schtick. My brother told me about a similar thing happening to a local fast food franchise but it was along racial lines. It has been a long time but IIRC the franchisee was dealing drugs through the restaurant and the corporation was going to pull the franchise and wahlah...in comes "the Reverend Jackson" to scream discrimination and threatened bad publicity. Race pimp.

Sorry. But this is not the bigger picture. It is one thing to sell to a woman an atractive clothing (while a secular advertising publishing company might use “sexy slogans.” Lingerie that she can wear in front of her husband, e.g.) and a completely different thing: to have a live sexy figure in front of you “working” with you, daily.

Seems like in every office environment, there’s one just like this chick who tries to ruin it for everyone else. That gal’s former coworkers are lucky they work for a small, local company - not a politiacally correct megabusiness with a mealy-mouthed human resources department hellbent on justifying its existance.

I worked for one of the latter. Instead of taking on the slutty dresser directly, the departmental casual dress policy got banned in favor of “more business-appropriate attire.” Everbody in the place had to replace their wardrobe. The problem worker, too: more costly skanky blouses, of course.

Doesn’t matter what line of fabrics this Native Intimates was selling. Office work calls for office attire. I feel sorry for them, tho. The tactless female manager was probably more blunt than a male would have been, and the business may throw her under the bus to save itself. Pity, that.
