A former server at the Union League Club is suing for sexual harassment, claiming:

From the moment Alina Borgovan started working at the Union League Club in Murray Hill, chef Jacques Thiebeult peppered her with insults and sent lewd messages through co-workers, begging her to have sex with him in exchange for money, the suit says.

Even worse, the Manhattan suit for unspecified damages claims, a supervisor cornered Borgovan in the kitchen and touched her breasts before she was canned for filing a grievance.

Gross. Also, her lawyer gives quotes like Leslie Knope, and the Post can't spell "desserts":

“They sexually harassed her and threw her away like day-old bread. They deserve their just deserts,” said Borgovan’s attorneys, Matthew Blit and Russell Moriarty.
