Hey everyone, I'm pretty new here so nice to meet all of you.
This morning I lost my job due to getting my dahlias pierced, which I would normally not find a big deal except for the fact that I have coworkers with face tattoos. Personally, i dont see a problem with either one, but im a little put down by this. Has any one had an experience like this? If so, how did you handle it?

Hi really think it is a violation of our first amendment right of freedom of expression, not to mention your freedom of religion. I would contact the ALCU. This is discrimination in my opinion. I think it is a big deal, and you have a right to practice your religion without fear of persecution. I am new here as well, but this is my beliefs.
Sorry to hear that.
Was it explicitly stated that this was why you were fired? Sounds strange given they have employees with facial work.
Did you have an opportunity to discuss what the issue was or any way forward?
I have been fortunate in not being fired for mods, but always advise communication first if possible.

Sorry to hear it.
My old boss was against body modifications because of her religious beliefs. I was constantly harassed about my hair color and tattoos. I hadpurple hair like
.I had hours cut after getting my tattoos, even though they aren't visible. I have both feet done as well, but always wear socks and shoes. I work in childcare and was told that even out in public I had to keep appearances up, so to keep covered, because I might see the children I looked after outside hours. In my uniform you can't see my tattoos. As I keep it professional but I've been told that I'm unapproachable and scary with tattoos and color hair and that could lose potential clients to the business
