2 women claim that they were told they could maintain employment as long as their outfits fit.
PHILADELPHIA -- Luck may be a lady, but she better not be pregnant or overweight.
Two former cocktail waitresses have filed a federal lawsuit against Parx Casino, in Bensalem, Pa., claiming they were demoted when they became pregnant.
However, a rule remains that Parkettes and their male equivalents, Park Men, must not deviate more than 7 percent from their body weight when they were hired.
Parkettes Alycia Campiglia, 27, and Christina Aicher, 31, who both became pregnant while working for the casino in 2008, claim that when they told managers they were pregnant, they were informed they could continue as Parkettes only until their costumes no longer fit, according to their lawsuit filed July 5.
Campiglia claims that when she approached the director of marketing at Parx, Darlene Monzo, about the issue, Monzo told Campiglia that she "did it to (herself)" and that the "casino did not have to offer (Campiglia) anything in this economy," according to the lawsuit.
