My boss is now requiring that all employees carry plastic see-through bags as purses to work. Can this be legal? I do not like the idea of co-workers knowing the contents of my purse.
Answer: Under the law, employers generally may impose whatever dress-code restrictions they want on employees. There really isn't anything illegal about see-through purse requirements. While you and your co-workers may not agree with the methodology, it sounds like your boss is concerned with theft via employees. Although the law may give your employer the right to ask for see-through purses in the workplace, you also have the right to find employment elsewhere.
