Why This Woman Was Suddenly Fired Is Actually Ridiculous
A British barmaid is claiming she has been sacked for not wearing a bra.
Kate Hanna, 22, went to work without a bra for her shift in Beverley in Yorkshire but she says her manager at the bar felt her outfit left little to the imagination.
The bar, however, denies she was dismissed her for that reason.
Kate took a selfie of herself still in the T-shirt uniform to prove that the dress was not offensive. So, I’ve just got home after being sacked from my job, for refusing to wear a bra,” she wrote on Facebook.
“Yesterday an inappropriate sexual remark was made to me (at work). I felt uncomfortable, objectified and shocked that this had happened.
“Unfortunately (the manager) saw fit to deal with the situation by telling me that I’m not allowed into work in future unless I’m wearing a bra.
“This was said to me in front of three other staff members and customers, leaving me feeling body shamed and completely shocked that the blame was being put on me that I had been sexually harassed at work.
“I am disgusted with the blatant lack of respect for my right as a woman to wear whatever makes me personally comfortable. I feel so sad.”
The pub responded saying “No employees have been dismissed from the company regarding these allegations,”
“We have a duty of care to protect all of our employees from any discrimination or sexual harassment in the workplace, and we take any comments towards our employees very seriously and act upon them immediately in a professional manner.”
