Is It Fair To Be Fired For A Tattoo?
A barista at a Starbucks in Michigan is being told that she has 30 days to begin the removal process on a tattoo on her hand, or her job with the company will be over. The heart tattoo, that’s about the size of a quarter, has been on her hand the entire time she’s been employed at the Starbucks over the last 5 years.
She says she doesn’t remember a tattoo policy being discussed, but the company notes that it’s been consistent and states that there to be no visible tattoos. It’s a standard part of the dress code.
She says she doesn’t understand why they’re making such a big deal out of it since it’s just “a little heart” and nothing offensive. The company stands by their policy.
