A Long Island country club hired strippers and prostitutes to entertain clients on the premises, according to a complaint by a disgrunted former employee.
Bartender Justin Williams, 33, was fired in May after two years with the $15,500-a-year Tam O’Shanter.
The lurid details:
- On special occasions, the country club reserved private rooms and hired prostitutes for clients, according to the complaint.
- Up to 150 people attended an August “Men’s Only” day. “The members would play a round of golf, and while they were out there, they would have strippers on the course, and drinks,” Williams told the New York Post.
- The strippers returned to the club for cocktail hour, but then they left and “the actual prostitutes would come in,” he told the Post. “At that point, whoever wanted to solicit would just walk up to the hooker, and things were negotiated during cocktails.”
- When the club hired prostitutes, employees weren’t allowed to have their cell phones to communicate with the outside world, according to the complaint.
- The bartender was told to lie to wives inquiring about the husband’s behaviour at the club, according to the complaint.
- Williams was made to pour cheap liquor into expensive bottles and charge clients premium prices, according to the complaint.
Tam O’Shanter has not responded to inquiries from Business Insider and New York Post.
The bartender filed a complaint for sexual discrimination and wrongful termination with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.
