Only Turkish employees were rehired.
Elizabeth, who works at the New York branch, said that the general manager told me to wear a short skirt, high heels and a low neckline on my first day at work, even though a Turkish employee was working at the restaurant in his usual uniform. .
According to a report published by the American Insider website, a lawsuit was filed in January 2020 by a former employee named Melissa Compier after she was not promoted because she was a woman.
