A 17-year old shop assistant at retail outlet, Poundland, Naomi Scott, has quit her job after her boss searched her bra in front of customers and staff.
According to Metro UK, Scott revealed that a female supervisor ordered her and two other colleagues to pull their bras forward to check if they were hiding stolen money, adding that the said supervisor failed to offer any apology when they were found to be innocent.
Scott said: “She asked two or three of us to pull our bras forward. They must have thought we were stealing money.
“It just shows they don’t trust their staff. I’ve never stolen anything in my life. Then she just walked off, there was no apology. I was in shock. It was disgusting. I was embarrassed.”
Reacting to the incident, a Poundland spokesman said: “This was a highly regrettable incident. We have taken steps to ensure it does not happen again.”
