Lawsuit?

At work I was wearing my jacket, just a blue and black jacket because I work next to the door ALL day. I can't leave the door, I see every customer walking in and out. They can be sick, coughing all over them and I come within a 1 foot range of them when they leave. And it's been pretty cold out lately, lowest 43 highest 58 so I've got quite a chill when people come in.

A couple of days ago our manager comes over and tells me to take off my jacket because it isn't dress code matieral. So I said, "So you want me to freeze up here?" He tells me to go tell someone in customer service to order me a long sleeve shirt. So I go over and she tells me I won't be able to get that shirt until SPRING/SUMMER. So what the hell?

Work wants me to freeze standing up there, wants me to get sick, so I wear a jacket so I can stay warm and do my job. What the hell? Is there a lawsuit in here if they fire me for wearing a jacket when they can't even supply me with a jacket or long sleeve shirt?

Go to human resources or higher management, if you have a problem and report it, your direct manager is supposed to do something about it. If he does not or he is the problem the go higher up. They should do something about it. they can't place your health at risk and then fire u for complaining about it.

Find out what corporate policies are and ask your ethics dept or human resourses and find out it the manager is being a dick or not.

Where do you work?????

He works at Circuit City or a similar store, Best Buy maybe.

I doubt you could bring a suit now, but if you get sick and they fire you, then maybe. But I just now heard on the news that some woman was fired for not wearing MAKEUP to work, and she sued, then LOST!!! wtf.
