Guess you can technically comply with a dress code in a Spock costume.
Employee, June Rivas, was fed up with hearing negative feedback from her boss claiming her hairstyles were unprofessional, and given there was no dress code other than being ‘clean and pressed’, June filed a complaint of harassment. As outlined on her recent Facebook post, June describes how the events unfolded, and her boss’s reaction:
So my boss didn’t like me wearing my hair in A ponytail every day. “Unprofessional” nor my hair in A scarf “Unprofessional” Nor my hair in pigtails. “Unprofessional” so I filed a harassment complaint against her as our contract states “No dress code. Just be clean and pressed. (*pic #1 is how I usually looked*)
To counter, she issued a brand new memo. We now have a dress code. No any of above plus no straps, hats, sandals, cleavage, back out, lace, and even (and I quote) “cultural head wraps.
…. :-/… uhh… yeah. Lawsuit much.
I decided to report her to the EEOC but comply in the mean time while they investigate.
I have come to work each day in an outfit that fits the guidelines she laid out…just…not QUITE the way she expected.
Hey, this is ME we’re talking about here. 😉
Well, June has posted amusing photos of her apparently dress code compliant work attire – arriving to the office dressed as as zany TV and movie characters, complete with corsets, capes, belts, and face masks among other things. All, she claims, within the confines of the dress code no less. June is getting a lot of laughs and comments on Facebook, and we’re not quite sure what her boss is thinking at this point.
