Borgata casino can fire its cocktail waitresses for putting on too much weight, a court has ruled.

An appeals court Thursday in New Jersey upheld a lower court 2013 ruling allowing the Borgata Hotel Casino and Spa to mandate weight limits for servers known as “Borgata Babes.”

More than 20 women, whose uniform includes tight-fitting corsets, stockings and high heels – filed a lawsuit, arguing it only affected female employees.
But a court in 2013 ruled that the policy did not discriminate against one gender, generally because it also applied to male “Babes”
and the servers had signed an agreement requiring them to maintain an appearance standard as a condition of employment.

The appeals panel found that the lower court ruled appropriately in dismissing the discrimination claim based only on weight but said complaints from
11 servers who claimed they were sexually harassed after putting on weight due to pregnancy or illness should not have been dismissed.

Deborah Mains, the women’s attorney, said the cocktail waitresses had been asked by supervisors whether they were pregnant or just getting fat, while co-workers allegedly snorted like pigs at them.

The court ruled that while the policy was legal, a lower court should determine whether the 11 women were subjected to a hostile work environment.

“Sexual objectification has been institutionalized and is being allowed to stand,” said Mains. “It’s difficult to separate the harassment claims that the court is
recognizing from the overall theory that the working environment is hostile because of the personal appearance standards.”

Borgata Casino has fired two waitresses in recent years for breaching the policy, which states that servers cannot gain or lose 7% of their body weight.

Although I only go to AC once or twice a year, The Borgata is the only place I go. Love it!
Not to keen on the policy but I wouldn't be surprised if other casinos have the same policy.

LOL Its where I go too lkvikings!
I went there over the summer and walked out of there with a couple of hundred dollars, which means I played back alot too. Anyway I just got mail from them for a complementary private jet flight from Harrisburg Intl airport to AC. Free shuttle service to the hotel, free room, and 50.00 slot dollars for a weekend in Nov. I have to give them a call to see if there are anymore seats available on the jet.
