I have heard about some ladies who cover their dogs and cats with clothes. Just think, cows and horses and dogs dressed. LOLAm not against any type of dress.....anyone can wear any dress,its all depend on climate and situation.....it doesnt mean sit nude in the office or in the factory. If it is hot, it is okay..EmbarrassedWink LOL

German court rules bosses can demand workers wear bras

Employers in the Cologne region of Germany can now demand that their workers wear bras, have clean hair and trimmed fingernails. Is this court ruling a violation of personal freedoms or simply upholding standard company policy?

 

German employers were granted a strange new power on Wednesday. The State Labour Court in North Rhine-Westphalia, one of the most populous regions in the county, ruled that employers could demand their workers wear bras to work and keep their nails trim and hair groomed.
The court was ruling on a case involving a dispute over an employment agreement by a company that conducts airport passenger security checks. But the decisions of the court will apply to all workplaces in the region.

My gut reaction to this was disgust. I felt outraged; if a boss of mine ever felt that he or she could dictate what I did and didn't wear to the office under my clothes I would feel violated.

According to some of the clauses in the ruling, workers must wear bras (flesh-coloured or white) or undershirts to "preserve the orderly appearance of employer-provided uniforms."

The court also ruled that there was no fault in requiring fingernails to be shorter than half a centimeter to protect passengers going through airport security from injury.  Finally bosses can demand that hair is "always clean, never worn looking unwashed or oily."  Women were not exclusively targeted as they also outlined that men could only sport a well-groomed beard or be clean-shaven.

The case first came to light when the unidentified airport security firm brought it to the Cologne-based court after its employees complained about the company's strict guidelines. Those are some hard-lined employers I tell you. Workers express frustration, and their response is to go to the courts and make their policies the law.

I can't help but feel my inner feminist come creeping out here. So what if I want to go to work bra-less? Damn it, I should be allowed. After all, shouldn't the company be providing work uniforms that aren't see-through? And if we can't decide on our own underwear, what can we decide on?

A friend of mine pointed out that most work places have company policies and dress codes and it's nothing to get my bras in a knot over. It's simply the rules of this one workplace. If you don't like it, don't work there.

But since this ruling has made it law for the entire region, and I can't help but feel it reeks of sexism. Could it be opening up a whole can of worms? How do they enforce these guidelines? Is there a bra-checker at work? What about wrongful dismissal?

Boss: You're fired
Worker: Why?
Boss: You went bra-less.

It's absolutely absurd.

Nope, not even one bit.

I have never found anything wrong in girls working late at night or being independent. I'm gonna take my parents for an instance; they have given me more independence than I can manage as a teenager, however, what they expect out of me is all about the Indian values, you know? They expect me possess all Indian attributes of a 'woman'. Hence, this is very true - nobody is ready yet. Adapting a more independent and bold lifestyle seems too offering and acceptable at first - but the majority has extremely deep rooted Indian values. That is why, there's too much of a mixture everywhere, Indo-Western application of things. From the latest lingo to the way people dress, it is a combination. Partially ready, partially not. Coherent enough.

Ok, i got your point OBJ. Why i emphasized on 'Indians' (specially those living in India) was 'coz people here are still a wee bit conservative in their approach. Though we say we are bold enough now , and that's why i guess Indian actresses even dare to do such photo shoots, but at the end of it, our mindset is quite different from that of people living in America or other developed countries. That's why i asked are we ready yet for such concepts.
India is a big country with a lot of diversity so kindof difficult to really speak for the whole country as such. With globalisation making inroads influences are bound to be there. Social conditioning is universal.
