I am being written up for not pulling my hair back based solely on the fact that I am a male.
Employment / Labor Attorney
Why are they asking you pull your hair back? Is it for sanitary reasons? Do you work in a restaurant, hospital, etc.? Are you a union member? Does the employer have a policy that applies to all males with long hair? We need more information.
If you work in food service, I believe everyone must have their hair pulled back.
