The suit claims that the waitresses were demoted when they became pregnant, being told that they could continue to be Parkettes until their costumes no longer fit. Under the Pregnancy Discrimination Actwhich amended Title VII's protections against discrimination to include pregnant women specifically, it is illegal for an employer to demote, fire, take benefits parx casino parkettes or otherwise discriminate against an employee for being pregnant.
How much does PARX CASINO in the United States pay?
The Parkettes are similar to the Hooters girls, which have in the past been required to allow men to be waitstaff. You may notice that they are all somewhat above average looking and none are overweight. This exception allows discrimination if it can be shown by an employer that all or substantially all of the members of one gender cannot successfully perform the job duties of an employer's primary business.
This is called the "entertainment exception" because court cases have limited it to situations where only men can be required to play a male part in a film or only women can strip at strip clubs.
Further, under the law, an employer cannot force a pregnant employee to stop working, nor can they require notice of a pregnancy unless it serves a legitimate business purpose and does not restrict the employee. Beware the parking lot, it's an accident waiting to happen.
The casino claims that the weight policy is enforceable because the Parkettes are "entertainers. You will leave this place smelling like a cigarette, so asthma sufferers beware.
It ain't Vegas, but it will do If you like no frills gambling, this is your kinda place. I'd suggest the valet parking option during peak times due to he parking situation.
The wife and I love going to Vegas to gamble, but Parx will do just fine if you have the urge to throw away cash and waste some time. While Parx has made some changes since the trouble began in by adding maternity costumes for Parkettes, it may need to make some other policy changes before the EEOC gets off its back for its Parx Parkettes pregnancy discrimination.
The women claim this is discrimination, is it? There is no hotel on site, and dining options are limited to a great place called Chickee and Pete's try the crab fries!
There are many different types of slot and other machines, and a limited amount of table games. In that case, the EEOC characterized Hooters' main service as serving food, which does not require only women. The Parkettes are primarily cocktail waitresses, whose position requires them to carry drinks to patrons.
It seems like there would be a similar ruling here. This may be luck, or it could be discrimination according to a lawsuit filed by two former cocktail waitressesreports the Philadelphia Daily News.
There are a TON of places to eat within a few miles of the casino right on Street Road, so check them out before or afterwards. We were greeted by overflowing trash cans at the entrance never a good sign but inside was fairly clean, but one of he darkest casinos I've ever been in.
Multiple stop signs mean nothing to my fellow Philadelphia drivers, so drive slow and be on the lookout.
