Loop Tilted Kilt hit with sexual harassment complaints

The Chicago Tribune reports that 10 current and former employees of a Tilted Kilt sports bar in the Loop have filed a sexual harassment complaint against a manager there.

Evanston Mayor Elizabeth Tisdahl last month denied a liquor license request by a different franchisee of the chain to open a Tilted Kilt in downtown Evanston, saying the "overly suggestive nature of the minimal attire of the female staff" had drawn objections from many Evanston residents.

In the complaint filed today with the Chicago office of the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission  the women say the Chicago bar's manager offered sexually explicit comments, engaged in inappropriate physical contact and made unwanted advances toward them.
