    What's wrong with asking her to wear a wig? If she tatooed "I hate cancer" on her face, would that be ok too? I think the owner is in the right on this one. She chose to shave her head and knew that her boss had a problem with it. It would be another thing is she lost her hair and they told her she was out of a job. Don't know why everyone is on her side.

    They told her she'd get fired if she did it. So she did it anyway. Gets fired. And now she's crying about it? Silly woman.

    Besides, she should have known better than to pull a stunt like that in Canada. Canadians are fkn brutal.

    Here in Canada we don't put up with silly lawsuit. She won't see a dollar if she does. Good for the owner for sticking to his guns. He has every right to do so.

    She has a case for a human rights complaint under paragraph 2(b) of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. Whether she wins or not is another matter.

    if she has a case then we really need a rewrite on the Charter.

    There's such thing as a dress code, and unless it is stated in company's/restaurant's policy than women are not allowed to wear short hair - they have no basis in firing her. If they have such a policy - it's a bias based on appearence.

    I had run into something similar when I hadn't been bothered once to clean my eyeliner off, and my supervisor told me to go to the restroom and wash it off. I told him to toss off, and he went nuts and arranged a board meeting with managers. I requested a staff handbook, where it states "female employees are not allowed to wear excessive makup" . For one thing, my eyeliner was nothing excessive, another thing I'm not a female. So I said they can request the head office to issue a new handbook with a changed policy and not bother me until then. Next day I worn a black nailpolish and pitch black eyeshadows just to piss my supervisor off - and that was like half a year ago. Couldn't do a damn thing about it.

    if you asked your boss if it was ok to wear black nailpolish and he/she says no and you do it anyways then you're asking for problems. A handbook isn't needed in this case, she asked and they said not to do it and she did it anyways. Why bother asking if she was gonna do it anyways?

    In your case, I completely disagree with how u handled it but that's another matter.

    I just think people often go looking for trouble and then love to hide behind "it's my right to do this" when there are penalities for their behaviour. Why must ever little thing be documented in a f-ing handbook? What ever happened to common sense like, maybe people won't like being served by a bald waitress. And this was a choice she made. If she had 25 piercings on her face I imagine she'd have the same issue but she gets sypathy on this one because it's for a good cause. But that doesn't help her boss when her customers don't like her appearance. She's in the service industry, some things you shouldn't need to be discussed for them to be understood.

    I handled it that way coz I can be a stuck up dick, and I don't see any reason why I shouldn't be one doing a $10/h job. I give 150% of myself serving the customers, and being told off on a shopfloor because of my non-offensive appearence doesn't help anyone. Besides, I like to piss my suprvisor off . I bet he wanted for me to wash off the makeup coz he got a boner when he saw me. Seriously it's just a place I go to 3 days a week to pay off my bills - it's not my career, so I really don't care about other staff I work with.

    Regarding that restaurant - they should have made it clear she'd lose her job, or take an unpaid summer off, as a consequence. They haven't - now they're having all this not-so-positive media coverage on them.

    she knew they weren't happy, that should be enough. I'm sure there's no official rule that says that I can't wear clown makeup around the office. But if I did, I'm sure our VP would be like "Mike, what's with the clown makeup? Get rid of it". If I didn't, and they canned me I'd figure that was fair. I couldn't say that it was for charity so my company should tolerate it. They're running a business and paying me to act professionally and in their best interest.
