Lawsuits have been filed by employees claiming they were fired for being too attractive.  Others have sued claiming they were fired for being too homely.  Is an employer's preference for or against attractive employees illegal?  How far may employers lawfully go to regulate the dress, grooming and appearance of their employees?  What do the few court cases on this subject really say?  This presentation will provide answers to these questions.

Date(s) & Time(s): 
Monday, June 25, 2012 - 2:00pm to 3:15pm
