Second former Scotch & Sirloin waitress sued the restaurant earlier this year

WICHITA — Christina Nuss isn't the only former Scotch & Sirloin waitress to sue Scotch Investment Corp. this year.

On Friday, Nuss filed a federal discrimination lawsuit alleging "illegal practices of terminating pregnant waitresses and promoting an atmosphere which tolerates the sexual harassment of female employees."

Earlier this year, former Scotch waitress Erica Pizzola filed a federal suit claiming she was fired after general manager Sonny Glennon learned she was pregnant.

According to the lawsuit, "Glennon told the plaintiff that she needed to leave now while she was on 'good terms' with the restaurant management."

The lawsuit stated that Pizzola had since discovered two other waitresses were fired because of pregnancies.
