A former Hooters employee is now suing the restaurant.

She says she was forced to quit her job after shaving her head for brain surgery. Sandra Lupo, who worked at the Hooters restaurant in St. Peters, Miss., claims that after returning to work following the surgery, her manager told her she had to wear a wig.  But the wig irritated her head wound.

Lupo claims Hooters then cut her hours forcing her to quit. Hooters has filed a motion to dismiss the lawsuit.
