No one ever made them (at least as presented in the article) made them lift up their shirts. They did that on their own.

The move triggered other workers inside the dietary unit to show off the bras they were wearing.

You're point being what now? Yeah, they did that own their own and somehow this makes the lawsuit justifiable.

I've heard this can be a problem in high school - with the students...

Bra Check Spurs Nursing Home Worker to Sue


ELIZABETHTOWN, N.Y.

A former nursing home worker has filed a $9 million federal lawsuit against an upstate county, claiming she's suffered mental anguish and needs anti-anxiety medication after being forced to prove she was wearing a bra at work.

Karen Tenney claims in the lawsuit against Essex County that a supervisor at the Horace Nye Nursing Home where she worked placed her hand on the back of Tenney's sweater to feel for a bra clasp.

When a clasp wasn't found, Tenney, a dietary aide, pulled up her sweater to show she was wearing a black sports bra. The move triggered other workers inside the dietary unit to show off the bras they were wearing.

"I feel that the actions of those involved constitute sexual harassment under federal and state law," Tenney said in court papers. "I have been constructively terminated by the actions of ... my employer and (the) failure to stop this harassment."

The undergarment check happened in April after nursing home officials received a complaint that Tenney was not wearing a bra as required by county policy.

Besides Essex County, which is in the Adirondacks, Tenney also names in her lawsuit the nursing home, county Attorney Richard Meyer and the state Civil Service Employees Union.

"We contend the suit is without merit," Meyer said.

They give more description about where the location is, rather than what actually happened.

How is having to show your underwear, "on their own"?

Do you want to work at a job where you have to prove you're wearing underwear everyday? What adult should put up with this?

I'm sure they just all felt compelled to flash their employer.

Because of course you'd want a bra check to make sure there is no bra. Am I right or am I right?

I would not know.....I work in an elementary school.

But I know many teachers who get upset at other teachers who show too much cleavage, or god forbid, do not wear bras that hide the headlights.



Since in the last ten years I have worked with only one other male...I am used to hearing women discuss these things in the teacher's room.

Being grossed out by someone overweight not wearing a bra to work is far, far different than having a supervisor ask you to lift up your shirt. I don't care if it is a male or female asking you to do it - it is still degrading. How would you feel if a supervisor asked you to drop your trousers at work to make sure you were wearing underwear?
I'm not talking about that or being grossed out be an overweight woman. In fact, when did I or randhail say this? What if I was truly offended by a larger woman's over-ample bosom bombarding me every time she bent over? What if I felt this was sexual harrassment? Even though this woman may have felt far more comfortable not wearing a bra and was not flirting with me at all, I could interpret her actions as such. Should I then sue for $9M?

As for the underwear, if I knew a routine check was part of the job before I accepted it, or if I knew that this was the new procedure, then I'd endure it. If I didn't like it, either I'd leave the job or not accept it. Obviously the management there has reasons for having this procedure. Sadly, we don't learn of them in this story - but I doubt a "random check for bras" is for "shits and giggles". If I really didn't like this policy, I'd leave or file a claim with the appropriate services. I wouldn't rush to a lawyer to sue for $9M.

So while I empathize with the woman's plight - yes, bra-checking is a ridiculous policy - I also feel she is being equally ridiculous with this $9M lawsuit.

I agree with randhail here. Per the story, when ONE woman lifted her shirt to show her sports bra, all the other woman decided to lift their shirts to show off their bras too. Whether that was done to show uniformity against this ridiculous policy or to mock the one woman, we don't know. If it was done in mocking, perhaps it's relevant. If it was done to show support of the woman, then it's not. But if done in mocking, then all those coworkers should be sued too - but I doubt they are, as they don't have $9M.
