You can’t pass your managerial duties off on God. This is what Brandy Cachu’s lawyers are claiming in their case against Denny’s, where Brandy worked and allegedly sustained extended sexual harassment by her manager, Henry Guiaro. When she brought her complaint to upper management, James Murti advised her to “Pray about the situation.”

Such evasive advice has long annoyed those in need, and seems to have been anticipated in the Bible:

“Suppose a brother or a sister is without clothes and daily food. If one of you says to them, “Go in peace; keep warm and well fed,” but does nothing about their physical needs, what good is it?” (James 2:15-16).

Nevertheless, any reference at all to religion, when corporate discipline is called for, has struck Cachu’s lawyers as out of place.

At her Stockton Denny’s, Cachu reports that Guiaro made such comments as asking if “her boobs were real,” and suggesting she “participate in a wet t-shirt contest because she would be the winner”; she accused him of getting him in trouble with his girlfriend when he called out Cachu’s name during sex, and when shopping with his girlfriend at Victoria’s Secret, he said he was “trying to guess [Cachu’s] size so he could buy her an outfit”; and on Halloween he showed up to work dressed as a doctor and requested she go to his office where he would “give her an exam.”

Upper management’s response, when confronted with the persistent sexual talk, was to “Pray about the situation.” It seems no other action was taken to stop the unwanted advances of Guiaro, and indeed, he seemed undeterred in his talk. God must have told her to sue them, because when the harassment continued she decided to put matters in the hands of a higher power: the legal system.
