Unless the employer is discriminating against a work based upon the worker's being in a protected class, yes. It's no different than the employer mandating the an employee wear orange shoes with polka dots--odd and perhaps not rational--but not unlawful.
It's a corporate card with access to both company and my personal funds. It has a picture but is not microchipped. This is the company ID as well. They require it to be worn visible on site. I'm getting ready to pay a year's worth of taxes so that's a pretty good amount of money on the card.
Your employer's practice strikes me as odd, but Missouri is an employment at will state and in general an employer is not prohibited from enacting odd workplace rules and terminating employment if an employee won't abide.

If tenant moves out early and buys out remaining lease from 6/1/22 (move out date) through 7/15/22 (lease term expiration date), and landlord rents the house to another tenant beginning 6/15/22, shouldn't the original tenant be entitled to a refund of rents paid from 6/15/22 through 7/15/22?
Probably not, but the lease terms control. In general, absent a buy-out clause, a tenant who vacates early is responsible for all rent remaining on the lease. If the landlord subsequently rents the premises, the tenant should likely get credit. That's different from a buy-out clause.
I doubt you’d lose because the SOL has run, unless you falsely state that the person has been convicted. There are any number of reasons you could lose a defamation suit, however. Litigation is unpredictable.
