Penthouse Club cocktail waitress sues boss for sexual harassment

Lourdes Garcia, a cocktail waitress who was fired from the Penthouse Executive Club in New York, filed a sexual harassment lawsuit against her former employer.

Garcia claims that her female boss, Kelly Gerald-Hughes, made sexual advances on her, including commenting about the size of Garcia’s breasts in front of customers and suggesting that the two kiss in order to receive a large tip from the customer.

Gardia also alleges that bar manager John Loukas invited her into his office on multiple occasions and implied “that he wanted to have a sexual relationship.”  Loukas allegedly told Garcia, “if you want me to help you, you have to help me. There are no cameras up here.”

Garcia claims that her numerous complaints to club owner Robert Gans about the hostile work environment were not taken seriously.  Instead, she was fired in mid-December.
