Ex-college worker claims boss made her watch 'chick flicks'

The Associated Press

LEWISTON, Maine (AP) A woman who worked briefly for the president of a Maine college has filed a discrimination lawsuit against the school, alleging she was expected to play tennis, jog and watch "chick flicks" with her female boss.

Sarah Hulbert, of Auburn, wrote in her complaint that she was treated differently from her male co-workers during her time as an executive assistant at Bates College in Lewiston.

The Sun Journal (http://bit.ly/1JFXd4v ) reports that the 59-year-old Hulbert worked for Bates President A. Clayton Spencer for a little longer than a month in the summer of 2012.

Hulbert is seeking damages, back pay and other costs.

A Bates spokesman said in a statement that "the college strongly disagrees with the allegations" and will defend itself in court.
