I think you're missing the point which is why a check in the first place. If you tell everyone to wear a bra, fine. If someone walks in and it's obvious someone's not, then make a complaint. Innocent until proven guilty. But you don't have to pat everyone down everyday and lift their shirt if you can't find a clasp. It's like those parents who ask their child if they made poopy in their pants and when the parent doesn't believe them they check for themselves in front of their playmates. These people are adults and need to be treated as such, not babies with diapers.

Now is it worth 9 mil, probably not, but that's mostly the lawyers fault.
O.K., last post in this thread.

I comprehend your point - and I agree that this bra-checking policy seems asinine. Nonetheless, it exists. Unfortunately, we don't know all the facts. But maybe there's a darn good reason for the policy and the daily check.

However, your point about "adults not being children" is not only irrelevant but incorrect. In fact, adults need to be checked far more often than children! Adults know that certain jobs require safety gear and special clothes and protection, yet often they don't wear it - usually for reasons of inconvenience. Yet, a safety officer or supervisor will (or should) enforce the policies. Same is true here. For example, perhaps the women at this employer need bras for a safety reasons, but a few women might have disregarded this policy. They were injured. So now the management was forced to institute this bra-checking policy, rather than trust their "adult" employees. It may be humiliating, but far better than getting hurt and losing $$ or more.

But as I wrote, we don't know both sides of this story.

I really don't know how I feel about this. I think if my boss ever told me he needed to verify I was wearing a bra, I'd laugh so hard I'd piss my pants! Also, I don't know why any woman would not wear a bra to work in the first place.

while i think the idea of these women being asked to prove that they were wearing bras was wrong, i'm wondering why on earth a woman would feel the need to lift up her entire shirt to do so.

a woman can very easily prove that they are wearing a bra by simply pulling aside the collar of her sweater or blouse and exposing a single strap.

lifting up the entire shirt is not only extreme, but completely unnecessary.

I don't see a reason why a supervisor should ever touch a female employee to check if she is wearing a bra.

What a bizarre policy.

yep. two wrongs by the sounds of it. 3 wrongs actually, if you include the excessive suit which followed. none cancel out another. they're wrong independantly.

Some women don't need them. One of my friends has never even owned one in her whole life and she has a pretty big corporate job.

I'd have just looked my boss in the eye and said "I'm wearing a bra and you'll just have to take my word for it."

It's possible I might also have just said, "Fuck you" if I were financially able to lose the job.

ooh, that's true. I hadn't thought of that, as mine I rent out to farmers in peak season to use as wind socks.



But seriously, some women are more petite than shetland pony sized me and can luckily get away with it.


Still...kick in the nuts for anyone who decides they have a business in enquiring about my boosie holders!
