Minor Quits After Being Subjected To Humiliating Invasive Bra Search By Employer

Naomi Scott, a 17-year-old from the UK, is on the lookout for another job. She’s quit her old one already, and few would question the wisdom of her making that decision. As the Daily Mail shares, her employer instituted a disturbing practice geared to act as a deterrent against employee theft.

Scott was employed at discount shop known as Poundland, and it sounds like they were awfully paranoid about employees having sticky fingers.

“We've always had bag searches and pocket searches. But all of a sudden, last Thursday, they came up with the idea of a bra search. One of my supervisors, a female, came up to us when we were on the till and said "we need to do a bra search,” Scott said.

Although she was incredibly taken aback by the request, she complied and went through with it.

“This was in front of staff and customers. She asked me and two or three other women who were working on the tills. Like me, they didn't look too impressed. She just said: "Have you got anything inside your bra?" I then had to pull my bra outward, give a bit of a shake and see if any coins came out the bottom,” Scott continued.

While the store has every right to be on top of matters such as employee theft, there are much better alternative approaches that can be taken. For example, an in-store surveillance system that’s pointed at each register has a way of keeping most people honest.

Invasive practices such as the one Scott had to go through are quite off-putting, and she has decided to take her talents elsewhere. It sounds like she’ll be much better off in the long run, as an employer that thinks this is a good idea may not be advanced enough to survive in today’s retail environment.

“It's really put me off going to work - it’s my first proper job, but I just left and didn’t go back. I’m now looking for another job,” she added.
