A: Is it part of their uniform? What industry are you in? Food service/bar? It could be perceived as discriminatory. Further information is required. Consider a consultation for a case evaluation.

A: Is there a uniform requirement, and if so, is that a reasonable requirement of the job. The reason for your discomfort may be relevant. Religious reasons? If you feel strongly enough about this, you should consult with an employment lawyer, and preferably BEFORE you have problems with your employer.
