The 17th nominee for the “worst employer of 2017” is … the square non-sparer

A female public relations exec is suing her former employer for sex discrimination. Her claim—that her male bosses limited her access to toilet paper the bathroom because, as a female, she used more than her male counterparts, and was fired after she complained about the discrimination.

From her lawsuit [pdf]:
     15. In addition, Ms. Boudine was teased about her need to use the bathroom, and in particular, her need—as a woman—to use toilet paper more frequently when she did use the restroom. 
     16. Defendants went so far as to impose a limit on how much toilet paper Ms. Boudine could use. Upon information and belief, similarly situated male employees were not subjected to toilet-paper quotas. 
     17. As a result, Ms. Boudine was relegated to using nearby fast food restaurant and gym bathrooms. 
Worse yet, she alleges that her employer fired her within hours of her lawyer sending a letter complaining of sex discrimination.

If you can’t spare a square for your female employee(s), you might be the worst employer of 2017.
