Avon fined for making woman dance


The Brazilian subsidiary of the Avon cosmetics company has been ordered to pay more than £23,000 in damages to a former employee who was allegedly forced to perform sensual dances at sales meetings.

The Regional Labour Court in the north-eastern state of Ceara said the company must pay the former sales manager 100,000 reals (£23,333).

The statement said the woman was forced to wear costumes and perform "objectionable dances of a sensual and pejorative nature" during annual sales promotion events.

The court did not reveal the name of the woman.

The ruling can be subject to appeal.
