NEW YORK — The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission filed a lawsuit in Brooklyn Federal Court Thursday, charging a Brooklyn sweater manufacturer with sex discrimination.
The lawsuit alleges that the company, Best Clothing Manufacturing Inc., which is also known as New Era Knitting Mills Inc., maintains a restrictive dress code that applies only to women and wrongly fired one employee, Yolanda Simon, for not obeying the dress code.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
