    Well, apparently it's a suspect class.

    thats why he may have a unemployment case. Since he violated no rules in the handbook, supposedly. This all varies from state to state and since he is seeking another job its really just a waste of time to discuss this so im done here.

    unless more humerus old timmy videos are posted.

    This has been true since we took over many years ago.

    Files law suit. Appears in court at 9am... in formal morning dress. Judge laughs and holds him in contempt for being dressed too nicely. Man dies in prison.

    Don't get bogged down in the actual statutes or case law. An injustice has been done to OP's friend and we will make new law to protect the arrogant who thumb their noses at their bosses' requests to dress appropriately. Attorney contact information has already been pm'd and my associates are currently working on drafting a complaint and a motion for a temporary restraining order. This is big!

    Again, assuming that this is a serious thread, and that the OP has provided all relevant details, I can see your summary as being reasonable. However, the account the OP provides raises significant questions: Why did the supervisor not deal with the employee by "stepping up his game" in his clothing, rather than punishing the employee? If the employer could not have afforded more upscale clothes, does that raise a possible issue of the terminated employee's having job skill(s) which the supervisor did not have? Does the supervisor's termination of the employee, which (on the basis of what we are told) seems to have been counterproductive for the company, raise possible questions about the supervisor's management abilities and priorities?

    You get as much justice as you can afford. Assuming his counsel accepts Saville Row garments as payment, I think this is an open and shut case.

    The agreed upon fee is 50% of the TV/movie rights. If he murders his boss, this has Law & Order written all over it. If not, I'm thinking this is at least a Hallmark Hall of Fame or Lifetime movie of the week.
