She’s too Sexy for Her Job?

Filed under: General HR Buzz — Tags: 2:01 pm

From the “you can’t make this up department…”        A former Citigroup employee has sued, alleging that she was illegally terminated because “she’s too sexy for her job.”   She claims that she was told she dressed in a way that was too distracting to male coworkers. She also noted that she’d been subjected to inappropriate comments in the workplace.   Additionally, she says that she’s always been burdened with good looks and refuses to “eat and gain 50 or 100 pounds because my job wants me to be the same size as everyone else.”    A lot of comments on this case come to mind, but I’ll leave it by simply saying that I hope that being “too sexy for your job” is not added to the classes protected under EEO laws.  HR people have enough to worry about.
