In Canada, it is illegal to force someone to remove piercing or cover tattoos in the workplace. US law, still allows employers to force their covering though.
This is the point. Banks are custodians for our savings and often investments. I hesitate to do business with people who are anything but strictly professional IN ALL REPECTS, including their dress and appearance. This means the employees must project the image of conservative bankers. I don't want to see tattoo parlor/pool hall paraphernalia in my bank. It doesn't inspire confidence in the banks ability to perform its fiduciary functions. It is out of place. It is inappropriate. It is UNPROFESSIONAL.
I've worked in the finance industry and have never seen anything
like this before. I was truly amazed.
