A male colleague of yours has told you that your office attire and fashion choices are a “disgrace” and he is going to get your job fired, right?
Well, no, you are not.
In fact, you can hire and fire men without ever worrying about the sexist effects of their workplace behavior.
But, before you can even think of firing a male colleague, you must first determine whether or not he is a woman.
To determine if a male coworker is a “man,” you must examine his clothing and shoes.
To do so, you need to use a tool called the Male Dress Code, or MDC.
For a man to be considered a “woman,” you need at least one piece of clothing that identifies as a “female” item.
If the MDC shows a woman’s clothing, it means that she is in a category labeled “Women.”
If you are the owner of a business or other employer, you will need to determine if you own a business that sells clothing for men or women.
If your clothing, shoes, and accessories are labeled as “Men,” you are allowed to fire any employee who dresses inappropriately for a male clientele.
However, if you are a business owner, you cannot fire any male employee for wearing a “women’s” clothing.
So, whether or the Mdc shows a man’s clothing or not, you should be able to dismiss a man who dresses provocatively for a woman clientele, even if the employee was not wearing clothing or shoes labeled “Men.”
In order to be able be a woman, a woman must wear the following items to work:A T-shirt that shows a “Women” logo.
A skirt that is long enough to cover the knees and a “Woman” logo printed on either side of the skirt.
A bra that shows the logo “Women,” “Women’s” or “Women Only” printed on both sides.
A pair of pants that shows either a “Men” or a “Man Only” logo, as well as the word “M” printed below the “Women”‘ logo.
The MDC allows women to wear “Women”-only clothing or accessories and to wear the logo and the word M. But, if the M is not visible on the shirt or skirt, it does not mean that the woman is a women.
You can find a sample of a woman-only shirt or pants at The Women’s Wearable Goods Store , and an example of a “men-only” shirt or pant at Men’s Wearables .
If the M logo is not printed on the pants or shirt, the business owner can fire a woman employee for dressing provocently for a man clientele or for wearing the “woman’s” clothes.
To be sure that your business does not discriminate against men, you may want to look at a business with a policy that specifically prohibits male employees from wearing “Women-only apparel.”
For example, a business might not want to be associated with a male employee who wears women’s clothing.
If you do not have a policy stating that all male employees must wear “women-only attire,” you might want to investigate this policy before firing a female employee.
