Hi everyone, I just wanted to write a thread dedicated to work dress codes. I have been at my company for 18 years and I work in an office envirnoment and yesterday they have recently amended our dress code policy. My CEO who is based in Atlanta always tells us not to sweat the small stuff and wants us to be comfortable at work so he recently said he does not care if people wear jeans to work. I thought it was cool becasue now I have more options other than wearing my dress clothes everyday. But really the most important thing to me and the way I like to express myself and feel comfortable is through my shoes and accessories. The most recent change at the division I work at is the change in our shoe policy. We cannot wear any heels over 3" and they have to be a block style heel. When I read this sentence I was heart broken and it made me very sad. After talking to one of my closest co-workers I was so emotional and had to go in my office because i was going to cry. I have a huge shoe collection and I love all of them equally and I am heart broken today. I love fashion so much and I think I may need to find a new job after 18 years!!! The thing that bothers me the most is that this is not in my dresscode that was written at the corporate level, but it was written at a divisional level. I was told by a female manager that wears a 3" block style heel all the time and those are the only shoes she really wears, that when they came to this decision it was a huge deal and they had shoes all over a conference table measuring them. They also called in another of my female co-workers to measure her shoes, but they did not call me. I really am the only female in my company that enjoys dressing nicely and wearing heels sometimes platforms, but I don't mind giving up platforms its just most of my 4" heels that I am upset about (non-platform). I feel as if I am discriminated against because this does not affect anyone other than me in my workplace. I am reaching out to my fellow TPF family for support and advice. They have it written in the employee handbook that it is for safety purposes, but really I do not see how they can allow 3" heels and not 4". I have been told by other people that I work with that my plant manager has a huge problem with my shoes so I feel it is directed at me and it makes me uncomfortable.
