    Debralee Lorenzana Claims She Was Fired For Being Too Hot

    Debralee Lorenzana is a former employee of CitiBank who claims that the bank fired her because she was too hot for the job. Lorenzana claims that after being instructed to change her style of dress because it was too distracting for fellow male employees, she refused and continued dressing how she originally was, which resulted in her termination.



    To be clear, there are instance when people have been discriminated in the workplace, but employers do have the grounds to insist that their employees are properly dressed in a manner that dignifies their position, which is why a lot of companies assign uniforms. In the instance of the banking industry, I think it is obvious that there is an expected dress code for both men and women.



    Lorenzana claims that she was instructed to stop wearing turtlenecks, pencil skirts and three inch heels. Do be fair, all three can be worn in a way that still looks professional, but at the same time, they do come in styles and variations that are suggestive and inappropriate for the workplace.



    Dressing up a woman's suit and making it more feminine is not hard, and should have been something Lorenzana would have been able to do in order to comply with her employer's requests.

    Right now she has filed the suit, and is awaiting arbitration. Her employers claim she was fired because of poor performance so it will be interesting to see how it turns out.

    Looks to me like she's naturally curvy. If a flat-chested woman wore the same clothes, there would be no issue. It's not like she was wearing anything low-cut, although perhaps she could wear one size up so things weren't so tight. Still, who is distracted? The customers? Why would that be a problem?

    Possibly but equally, an ugly guy who knew he wouldnt stand a chance with her! If those were the outfits she was wearing and her work performance was ok, then they were out of line. The lawyer has it right in that she shouldn't suffer cos her fellow male co-workers couldnt control themselves.

    somethings fishy here...they told her NOT to wear turtlenecks....one would think that turtleneck sweater would be among the most conservative styles that one could wear to the office...........oh unless said turtleneck was whisper thin and skin tight


    I think an employer has the right to determine what is appropriate work attire and if she admitted that she ignored management's requests to change her attire, then she created a hostile environment, didn't she?


    I think she has other aspirations and that this firing just gave her an excuse to get publicity


    I'm just surprised that Gloria Allred isn't involved somehow

    She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted.

    apparently she had trouble at 2 different branches. I'm thinking that she must have been going out of her way to act/dress inappropriately. Companies have dress codes for a reason.

    EXACTLY!! K, look at all the different body types in bikini's for example. Some women that are less endowed (like me for example) couldn't look slutty if they tried to, then others will look slutty no matter what they put on. Women come in all shapes and sizes and we are all beautiful. Also, don't banks want all the costomers they can get, and if she's gettin clientele, then why is it a problem??

    I'll betcha her boss was one fugly jealous bitch...That's the only rational explanation.

    Banks (like the one I work for as an example) don't want staff looking like they're heading to a club later that night. The lady obviously needs attention and dresses in a way that would get her maximum attention and she got it. Not all attention is good attention she found out.

    and not all women are beautiful, some are ugly as all hell (both inside and out).

    Well of course not Mike! I'm just making the point that some women will 'look' like they are trying to attract the wrong kind of attention no matter what they wear, according to their figures.....She looked like she dressed fine to me, but now, it wouldn't be appropriate for a woman to wear some thongs and a chemise to work.

    And yeah, you can see a gorgeous woman, but if she's a bitch, she becomes so ugly to you. It works the same way with men. But if they have beautiful insides (like my friends do, or they wouldn't be my friends) they are the most beautiful things on earth no matter if they're a size 2 or a size 22.

    Not so apparently. All her bosses were male.

    Don't tell me that wives, no matter how secure they are with their husbands, won't tell them to fire some broad because she's more attractive than they are.
