*laughing all the way to the bank*


I can't seem to highlight anything here, but CHECK OUT THE LAST SENTENCE IN THE ARTICLE


A MUSLIM cocktail waitress has won a £3000 ($6090) compensation payout for having to wear a figure-hugging red dress she said made her feel "like a prostitute".

But a claim by Fata Lemes for about £17,000 ($34,500) in damages was dismissed as "manifestly absurd'' by a British employment tribunal, which rejected her claim that she was sacked.

Ms Lemes, 33, worked at the Rocket Bar in Mayfair, central London, for barely a week last year.

When she started, female staff wore a loose-fitting uniform, but she was told this would change in summer.

The summer outfit turned out to be a tight-fitting red dress - which she refused to wear, saying it was "disgusting''.

An employment tribunal panel led by a judge agreed with her, contrasting it with what male employees of the bar had to wear.

"Plainly, it related to her sex. It was gender-specific,'' they said in their ruling.

"The respondents did not introduce a summer uniform for male waiting staff. Unlike the women, the men were not required to switch to brightly coloured, figure-hugging garb.''

Forcing her to wear the dress if she wanted to continue working at the bar "violated her dignity'', the panel decided, and created a "humiliating'' environment.

The panel found: "Her perception was that wearing the dress would make her feel as if she was on show, as if she was being presented as one of the attractions which the Rocket Bar was offering its customers.

"In our view that perception was legitimate and not unreasonable. We are reinforced in this conclusion by the striking contrast between the dress and the dark, loose-fitting attire which would remain the men's uniform.''

But they did not accept her view that she was sacked from the bar, and refused to uphold her claim for £17,000 compensation, saying it was "manifestly absurd''.

British newspapers had earlier on Monday published a picture from the social networking website Facebook showing Lemes - a photographer who does bar work to supplement her income - in a revealing white top, smiling at the camera.

In the US they would have ruled against her. You can have separate standards as long as both sides have a standard. Seeing the pick of the uniform tells me she's unreasonable though. Also, if her religion was a factor, she wouldn't have been serving booze.

1) I, too, would pay to NOT see her in that dress

2) Some Muslim - she's not even covering her head

Skank can laugh all the way to the bank, but when she runs out of crank, she'll get money to wank.

Ok, that chick posted above doesn't do the dress justice, the accused does, check the link above.
AND in the facebook pic she is wearing a frigging bikini top under the tank top, big whoop. What are women supposed to wear at the beach?

What a useless story.

Carry on.

What does the fact she's a Muslim have to do with anything? If you take that story and replace replace "Muslim" with "Evangelical Christian" is the complaint still as absurd?
Link Posted: 6/15/2009 6:11:29 PM EST
She doesn't look Muslim - where is her beard?
Link Posted: 6/15/2009 6:12:11 PM EST
So she has a problem wearing it for work, but not to be a money grubbing attention whore...

Yes, if she serves booze for a living. Hardly a pious life choice.

Most "Evangelical Christians" wouldn't have an issue with that dress. And the one's that did have an issue would merely quit, not try to sue over some imaginary slight.

I'm not seeing where her religion has anything to do with this article.

It's not like she's the type to wear a burka and this restaurant is making her give up her religious beliefs by making the dress code a bikini or something.

She's just a chick who doesn't like the fact that the restaurant is making the female staff wear tighter stuff than she likes.

It she full of shit? Is she doing this just for the money, or what. I have no idea. Why do we care?

Bottom line: this is not newsworthy, yet here I am wasting time reading about it and discussing this nonsense with y'all.

In before her brothers will rape her repeatedly and then her father can cut her head off and make some sort of goat neck stew out of her carcass as the Sharia tribunal applauds the family for maintaining the peace of Mo-ham-Hock and honor sacrifices to Lucifer as they dance around there Krylon painted black box..
