DALLAS (1080 KRLD) - A North Texas-based restaurant chain is being sued by three former employees in Illinois.

The federal lawsuit against Addison-based Twin Peaks restaurants alleges sexual harassment and a hostile work environment.

The three women who filed say they knew about the skimpy uniforms when they took the jobs but claim their managers ordered them to wear bikinis and lingerie as part of special events.

The claim also mentions work assignments based on subjective grading of the server's hair, makeup and bodies.

The Chicago Tribune reports Twin Peaks' CEO Joe Hummel called the allegations "baseless."

Twin Peaks was founded in 2005 in Lewisville.
