4 Bronte is employed as a bookkeeper at the nation’s largest toy store where she works with Barnes. Barnes has a reputation as the office comedian and, over the course of several months, has made various jokes related to Bronte’s figure and recommended that she come on casual day dressed in sexy lingerie. Bronte tried to laugh at the jokes, but was in fact very upset about the remarks. When she confronted Barnes about the behavior, he advised her to “lighten up” and told her that he was equally sarcastic toward male employees. Bronte quit one day later.
