June Rivas of Chicago took to Facebook to talk about how pissed off she was when her boss told her wearing her hair in a ponytail or putting on a headscarf made her look "unprofessional." Rivas, who pointed out in her post that there was no dress code at work other than "be clean and pressed," filed a harassment claim against her boss. In response, her boss created a dress code, sending out a memo to employees advising them they couldn't wear ponytails, pigtails, hats, sandals, cleavage, backless clothing, lace, or even "cultural head wraps."
Well, that probably did not do much for employee morale. Rivas wrote that she was reporting her boss to the EEOC (Equal Employee Opportunity Commission), but in the mean time she was complying with the new rules. Technically. As she put it:
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.
Check out some of the outfits she wore while still following the guidelines her boss was so eager to set.
