The program is something they do only during the holiday season, reminding fans of its history.

    Or so she alleges in a lawsuit filed in Detroit’s federal court.  Elizabeth DeLorean started working at the clothing and accessories company in 2002 as a 20-something who would dine on health-conscious microwaveable meals during her lunch break. “Then it would get a little more intense, things like, at a performance review ‘whatever happened to the girl who would bring in her Lean Cuisine for lunch every day?’” Coach insists the 35-year-old’s poor performance was the only factor involved in her firing, but DeLorean is seeking unspecified damages for lost employment and distress. Yes, being laid off because of your body is totally harsh, but it might not be the worst reason for getting the ax.  Pregnant Nasty Gal employees got the ax instead of maternity leave.
