Associated Press

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission filed a lawsuit against lingerie retailer Victoria’s Secret saying that a shop in Langhorne, Pa., didn’t honor a promise to give a Baptist saleswoman most Sundays off so she could attend church services.

The EEOC suit also accused store managers and employees of subjecting the woman, who is black, to racist comments.

A spokesman for Limited Brands Inc., the Columbus, Ohio-based parent of Victoria’s Secret, declined to comment.
