Muslim waitress: I was sacked for refusing to wear ‘sexually available’ red dress

Fata Lemes is claiming sexual harassment at Central London Employment Tribunal

A Muslim cocktail waitress who claims she was sacked for refusing to wearing an ‘indecent’ red dress is suing a bar for £20,000. 

Fata Lemes, 33, said the figure-hugging scarlet dress made her look like a nightclub hostess and was ‘physically revealing and openly sexual’. 

Customers pestered her for sex while she was working at the upmarket Mayfair bar, she claimed, and managers ran it ‘like a sex club’. 

Miss Lemes said bosses at the Rocket bar allowed customers to think that ‘waitresses could be treated as prostitutes’. 

She is suing for sexual harassment and sex discrimination. 

She said she was fired when she refused to wear the dress and is claiming £20,000 for injury to her feelings and lost earnings. 

Miss Lemes, who is from Bosnia, told an employment tribunal she tried the outfit on and found it was ‘physically revealing and openly sexual’. 

She said: ‘It was indecent. If you put this dress on, you might as well be naked.

‘Everything finishes in the middle at the chest. It is open at the front and back. I 
did not want men looking at my body. I was brought up a Muslim, and am not used to wearing sexually attractive clothes.’ 

Restaurant group Spring & Greene, which owns the Rocket chain, denies her claims and insists the dress was a ‘summery staff uniform’ chosen by two other waitresses.

The Central London Employment Tribunal was shown photographs of one of the waitresses, Amanda Bjursten, wearing the dress at the bar and she also modelled it at the hearing. 

The Swedish waitress said she was ‘completely comfortable’ wearing the clinging outfit and added: ‘It might be hard for some people to wear this dress. But I still like the dress and like wearing it in the bar.’

Miss Lemes, who is blonde and has worked as a waitress for 14 years, started her £5.52-an-hour job at the bar in May and wore her own clothes to work.

She chose a loose-fitting black shirt and trousers but said that on her second shift she was approached by two customers who told her they were looking for ‘a blonde Scandinavian or Swedish girl for one or more nights’. 

She said: ‘It was obvious that they thought that I was Scandinavian. I politely refused the offer. 

‘I was offended by that offer. I considered the company must be indicating to guests that the bar was the type of bar where they could make sexual offers to staff.’ 

A few days later she was ordered to wear the red dress. 

She told the hearing: ‘It was a bright red dress that was clinging and revealing of the body. It was clearly designed to be attractive to men sexually. 

‘I was particularly concerned that clients, who already had made sexual proposals while I was wearing loose black clothing, would regard me as a sexual object or a prostitute.’

Miss Lemes has made the claim against Rocket bar and restaurant in Mayfair

Miss Lemes, of Camden, North London, said she told the bar’s manager, Luca Scanu: ‘I am sorry but I cannot wear that dress.’ 

She said she was given one day’s notice and wore her black outfit for her last shift, but claimed another customer approached her for sex that night. 

Lawyer Tom Grady, for Spring & Greene, told Tuesday’s tribunal: ‘There is no evidence to support the suggestion that it is a sex club or some sort of seedy brothel.’ 

Mr Scanu denied the dress was ‘sexually inviting’ or that waitresses were asked to wear it to boost custom from men. 

Mr Scanu, an Italian, said: ‘If you have curves, it will show them but I can see the curves of a woman’s body if she is wearing trousers.’ 

Lawyer Joe Sykes, for Miss Lemes, asked the restaurant’s general manager, Danila Bodei: ‘The reason for choosing the colour red was to indicate that the waitresses were sexually available, wasn’t it?’ 

She replied: ‘No, it was just the colour to match the bar.’ 

The company claims Miss Lemes resigned of her own accord. 

The tribunal decision is due next year.

  1. Oh for the love of God!

    There is nothing wrong with the dress, and ALL cocktail waitresses get propositioned! I’m surprised she would even work in a bar……since alcohol is haram.

    Sounds like another set-up to me!

  2. * A Muslim cocktail waitress

    Bzzzt!

    One of those muslims for whom alcohol is prohibited? That muslims refuse to carry in their
    cabs, along with guide dogs? What next, muslims in piggeries complained that they have
    to go near pigs?

    * Sounds like another set-up to me!

    Snap!

  3. She is just doing the financial jihad you know where as a Muslim you tie up the courts and claim legal aid and drag out the case for months. Anything to bring down the kaffirs and drain their economy and you know the ‘Yuman Rites act’ INDUSTRY is on standby to help. These Lawyer scum just love filling their pockets with all that taxpayers money. First the trial then the appeal and you know in the end the Dhimmie Judiciary are going to give it to you. Just look at the Doctor partner of the Glasgow bomber, he was caught with their suicide notes , bought their cellphones was in CONSTANT contact with them throughout the terrorist act and has terrorist information on his PC and was their friend before they even came to UK. But the stupid Dhimmie jury let him off and now he is fighting deportation even though he is an illegal immigrant and his family is living in Jordan.

  4. Sort of hypocritical – if this had happened in freedom-loving saudi arabia she’d have been beheaded for working in a liquor outlet. When are we going to start deporting these dreadful people?

  5. Do all muslims get lessons on how to scam the system upon arrival in Britain?

    Just wondering, as in the following picture she seems to not be very worried about her cleavage being on display, not that many men would even bother to look she is one ugly bastard:

    http://img.thesun.co.uk/multimedia/archive/00684/RSNN1829B_180_684254a.jpg

    I bet she didn’t even indicate she was a muslim upon applying for the job!

    I can just imagine imams scoping out potential places to be scammed, as long as they get a share of the profits. In the not to distant future, we’re gonna get to point where muslims get a job in a bar, then scream discrimination when they’re made to serve alcohol and receiving compensation from some barmy dhimmi judge!

  6. Firstly has anyone seen her in her off work clothes – do check the pic on Sun .. No muslim would dress like that

    Secondly if she is a muslim what was she doing working in a bar serving alcohol

    This is just about making money.. Employers will find some reason to not employ Muslims in the future

  7. Some people really need to engage their brain before posting, Do you believe that tourist hotels in Muslim countries import non-Muslim staff just to serve the drinks ? Yes shes a chancer saking for all that compensation but don’t forget that some Christians chan have higher dress standards as well.

  8. Darlin’, the name “Rocket Bar” should clue you in this isn’t the same joint as the Plaza Hotel hideaway drinkery. Find another job. Another moo trying to make a mountain.

  9. Why doesn’t she just find another job–I’m sure she can waitress at another restaurant where there is no dress code–besides, as many pointed out, if she’s such a devout Muslim, why is she working as a cocktail waitress??? I am so sick of people thinking that a private business must change its perspective to cater to the employee or even customer.

    A similar law suit is underway in Minnesota where a Muslim family took offense to the Christian oriented toy given out in the happy meal at a Long John Silver–to the point of demanding the Long John Silver be mandated to take ‘sensitivity training’–NO NO NO–you don’t like the happy meal, go to another restaurant!!!!!!! You don’t like the uniform at the bar, GET ANOTHER JOB

  10. I fail to see what this young woman’s religion has to do with this case, the case is clearly one to do with gender. If she is not comfortable wearing the dress – why should she have to? It’s a cut and dry case of double standards – men are not expected to wear revealing clothing and women are. This is why she won the case in the courts. Further: It is obvious that this establishment is hiring immigrants because they are willing to work for lower wages and are more easily exploited. Your anger is mis-directed. It should be directed at this establishment who is making it harder for British Nationals to get jobs (and be exploited similarly). As for all the charming contributions from people saying that this girl is ‘ugly’, please include a photograph of your flawless selves so that we the reader can make similar debasing comments and insults that have no relevance to anything at all.

  11. How dare she want to wear some modest clothes? Surely these women must know that they are supposed to look good for their male customers!

    Shame on most of the cretins writing comments here!

    No true man would be happy for his daughters, sisters, wife or even mother to be wearing clothes such as that in a bar. But this Miss Lemes is someone’s daughter, sister and probably future wife and mother.

    If I’m wrong, then truly there are no real men left in England, just a bunch of panting fornicators who can’t control their hormones, incapable of respecting half the population.

    1. She was hired to wear a cocktail dress in a bar and she agreed to it. Then she turned around and screwed her employer because she claimed her religion doesn’t permit it. But aren’t Muslim females just breeders who are to be wacked under a burka and stay at home? Why did she put her picture up on facebook with her tits half exposed? If that’s not a hypocrite I don’t know what is….

  12. Lawrence, I believe that you are wrong in one sense – there are real men left in England who do respect women.

    However – they are most certainly not to be found in here.

  13. Some men proposition women. I was seated at a bus stop once wearing an ankle length full skirt and a high niecked cotton blouse reading the Bible I had just purchased and was approched by a man asking if I would like to have a drink. I’ve been approched at bookstors, libraries, drug store, banks etc. while dressed very preppy, it happens. There is nothing wrong in working at a bar but you do have to expect that people are there to have a good time and everyone dresses in “club” attire which this dress is, nothing more or less. There are places where the wait staff wear clothing more suitable to her wishes, she ought to apply at one of those establishments. Me thinks the lady doth protest too much.
