Lauren Odes, a staffing employee who worked at the Native Intimates lingerie company, says she was fired because the Orthodox Jewish owners of the company were uncomfortable with her attire. Odes’s attorney Gloria Allred says she filed a gender and religious discrimination complaint with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission in New York. Odes says she was warned that her attire was too alluring and that she was asked to wear a red bathrobe to cover one outfit. She says she eventually agreed to purchase a sweater to wear over her dress but was dismissed anyway.
