As beachgoers flock to private clubs along Lebanon's coast to take advantage of the summer sun, one club's dress policy targeting maids has stirred controversy online. A recent post by Sahar Mandour, a regular at Beirut's Sporting Club Beach, went viral. It brought attention to a form given to clients upon entry regarding the attire of domestic workers accompanying their employers to the club.Abu Nassar said the policy had been recently introduced because of the increasing number of maids coming to the club without appropriate swimming attire.The post also included a story about Mandour's friend, who witnessed an Indian woman being mistaken for a maid and thus refused access to the beach club.Policies regarding burkinis also differ from club to club.Regarding its swimwear policies, Kachouh declared that the club had "no specific rules" and people could wear whatever they felt comfortable in, including a burkini.
