Over a dozen women who have worked at Tilted Kilt have filed a sexual harassment lawsuit against the Celtic-themed sports bar, known for their waitresses who were skimpy next to nothing outfits.
Last June, the workers filed a sexual harassment complaint with the US Equal Employment Opportunity Commision, the first step towards filing a lawsuit. Last week, they received "right to sue" letters from the EEOC.
he women claim that one of the restaurant's managers and owners created a sexually hostile, offensive and degrading work environment that was on-going and lasted for the entire length of plaintiff's employment. This behavior was unwelcomed.
The lawsuit lists nearly thirty examples. Besides sexual harassment, the suit also alleges
retaliation and intentional infliction of emotional distress, saying that workers who complained received limited or poor shifts.
The women are seeking compensatory and punitive damages.
