Bra Check

I can't imagine having to prove you're wearing a bra at work and having someone actually touch you to check, completely humiliating. I don't know if it's worth 9 million dollars though. Maybe things like this are one reason among many that nursing home workers are so frustrated and burned out. How would a lack of a bra affact patient care? It's county policy too I wonder if they check male workers for bottoms..


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.

ick. Like it's any of their business? What's next? Feeling up women to "check" if they have regulations style bras?

That's horrifying.

And you're right.....what about men wearing undies? When men go commando that can be awfully distracting...

I once had a 50+ year old (drunk) woman at the Rennfest try (repeatedly) to reach up under my kilt to determine my undergarment status. I should've sued.

This method of checking for a bra is unacceptable.

I wonder if a business dress code can reasonably include a requirement to wear a bra?

when I worked in retail the dress code said something like "appropriate undergarments"

they had a real obsession w/ the female employees wearing pantyhose too, I would even catch the managers looking to see if we had them on.. a few times I even heard them asking

Oh yeah, appropriate bras are a must but who gives a damn about all the disgusting men who refuse to wear anti-perspirant. Ever been stuck in a confined place with one of them, your head squeezed between a wall and their armpit?

I don't know, can I sue if someone's comments cause my intelligence to drop?

This is insane. What does wearing a bra have to do with job performance? Nothing, if you ask me.

Only if you can prove you were intelligent to begin with.
