She Refused To Wear High Heels At Work!
Last year it was reported that members of the UK Parliament called for a review of the 2010 Equality Act when women “told two Commons’ committees how employers demanded they wear revealing clothes, dye their hair blonde and constantly reapply their make-up while at work.”
This campaign began with a petition submitted by a woman “who was sent home by her employer … on her first day with them because she refused to wear heels.”
Well, it turns out that the ordered Parliamentary inquiry has yielded its results – a new guidance on workplace dress code compliance for employers.
Is the Guidance all that it is cracked up to be?
