Question

David Perkins left a successful career in the NFL after two head injuries. His doctors recommended for his safety,

that he leave the sport if he wanted to live past the age of 30. David, not one who sits around without anything to do, decided to open a sports bar, The Wing Shack. After 5 years the restaurant concept gained momentum and he was opening his fifth restaurant in the Michigan area. David is proud to be socially responsible while creating jobs in the community and feeding the homeless. If David is doing so well, he says in response to an unwarranted lawsuit, he shouldn't be sitting in his attorney's office spending money he could be using to help his community. David is being sued for discrimination by two waitresses from Roseville, Michigan: Mindy Simpson and Laura Walker. Simpson received positive performance evaluations and was promoted to shift supervisor within 6 months of being hired. However, in her last evaluation Simpson who is 5'8", says she was advised by her manager to lose weight and join a gym, she was given 30 days to lose weight despite losing 13 pounds on her own after working on the job for 2 months. After the 30 day period expired and she did not lose the required weight, she was fired.  


Walker, by contrast, is 4'10' and weighs 120 pounds says she was put on weight probation and then fired even though she lost 20 pounds.  


David gives his attorney his side of the story: "I run a successful business and pride myself on hiring women who fit the image of a sports bar. I give guidelines on my website about hair, eyes, skin, makeup and exercise. All of my female wait staff have to attend image classes and pass the exam. Employees are hired based on the image you have when they are hired."
