Teenage waitress told to wear skirt and makeup 'for punters'

I was worried about losing my job if I didn't wear what they wanted me to wear

– Erin Sandilands

An 18-year-old waitress from Ayrshire has been awarded £3,500 after winning a sexual discrimination claim against her employer.

Erin Sandilands joined us this morning to describe how her employer told her to look "more feminine" for the punters, saying she simply needed to look "better". Erin tells Susanna and Ben that although she knew it was wrong, she didn't want to lose her job.

However, Erin did refuse to comply with the unacceptable demands and was subsequently told she wouldn't be given any more shifts.

Laura Bates from the Everyday Sexism Project also joined the debate to argue that workplace sexism has a disproportionate impact on women - but agreeing that men aren't immune to the issue.

How British Gas customers could save £100s

British Gas customers’ £300/year savings, 50% off Sky, free eye tests, free kids’ summer camp and £10 Pimm’s. These are our Money Saving Expert Martin Lewis’ Deals of the Week.

Remember, deals can change quickly, even while I’m on the programme. So always double-check the terms and conditions before spending. Plus, while I hope these deals will save you cash, don’t spend if you can’t afford it, don’t need it, or won’t use it.

Corrie will permanently air six episodes a week!

Coronation Street fans rejoice - you can expect more of what you love as bosses have confirmed plans to air six episodes a week.

The soap currently airs five weekly installments, but has previously experimented with a temporary additional airing on a Thursday. The current layout of the set will be extended to compliment the expansion in production, creating additional studio space and new employment opportunities!

The only catch is that fans of the cobbles will have to wait until 2017 for the extra episode...
