WASHINGTON — The American Civil Liberties Union filed a complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission this week on behalf of a lesbian Chili’s employee who they said was denied a promotion for not dressing more “gender appropriate.”

Ria Tabacco Mar, an ACLU senior staff attorney for the group’s LGBT & HIV Project, told reporters on a phone conference Thursday that the server, Meagan Hunter, asked a district manager if she could wear a chef-style coat.

She was then told it was “for boys.”

Hunter was a server at one of the chain restaurant’s locations in Phoenix. She has since said that she was forced to quit.

Chili’s has since denied the request was made.
