Hooters Waitress Sues for Discrimination

After brain surgery leaves her with a shaved head.

It's no secret that a job at Hooters might be based more on appearance than at other companies, but a former waitress from Missouri is suing for disability discrimination after brain surgery left her with a buzz cut and noticeable scar. Sandra Lupo says she was assured she would keep her job postsurgery, but when she returned was told she would be required to wear a wig. She refused to wear it when it began interfering with the healing of her scar, and was virtually pushed off the schedule, she says.
