Abercrombie & Fitch has been accused of allowing discrimination of a staff member who has a prosthetic arm.
The clothing store in Savile Row, famed for its beautiful models and shop staff, hired law student, Riam Dean, but she claims because of her prosthetic arm, was forced to work in the stockroom rather than face customers. She claims she was told she would be allowed to wear a cardigan to cover her arm, but was later told by a manager, she could only work with customers if she took the cardigan off.
The BBC quotes her as saying: "I was always prepared for children to be curious about my disability, but to be faced with adult bullying, no-one could have prepared me for such debasement" . She is suing the company, which denies her claims, and seeking damages up to £20,000.
