Woman complains when her boss tells her to wear a bra
Mon Sep 11, 2017 12:51am

Not just that she refused, but there's a precedent that has potential for an EUF situation: "She points to a 2005 case where the B.C. Human Rights Tribunal found discrimination on the basis of sex because a bar required female servers to wear a bikini top.
It's difficult to determine if requiring female workers to wear a bra would also be considered discrimination..."

I'm imagining if her employer mandated that "all female employees must wear a bra" and it didn't violate any human rights, and got approved, I can see someone being tricked into thinking the accepted uniform is ONLY a bra on top.

          I wore a tie for work for so many years that now, even though I've retired, I feel uncomfortable not wearing a tie.

      I have a friend who experienced the same situation. She was very well endowed and did not enjoy wearing a bra. Definitely not shy and not concerned about showing her assets she was eventually... more

        That almost looks like the fashion trend when I was a teenager and we all thought Madonna was cool.
