NEW YORK: A New Jersey woman said that she was dismissed from a temporary job at a New York lingerie warehouse because her male employers felt she was too busty and dressed too provocatively for the workplace.
Wearing a form-fitting sequined black dress and black leather, sequin-studded boots, Lauren Odes, 29, said her Orthodox Jewish employers at Native Intimates told her that outfit and others like it were too hot for the warehouse. “We shouldn’t be judged by the size of our breasts or the shape of our body,” Odes said.
Odes’s attorney, celebrity Lawyer Gloria Allred, said she filed a gender and religious discrimination complaint with the US Equal Employment Opportunity Commission in New York. Odes said she felt her wardrobe was appropriate for a business that sells thongs with hearts placed in the female genital area.
