6 workplace rules that often annoy workers (infographic)

13 May 2016

Workplace rules and dress codes hit the headlines this week when a young woman revealed she had been sent home without pay from the temp job she showed up to for refusing to wear heels.

Nicola Thorp said that when she showed up to the PwC office in London in December she was told she had to wear shoes with a 2in to 4in heel.

When she questioned this rule, and refused to comply, she was sent home without pay.

The incident has caused much chatter in the media since Thorp went public about the incident in recent days.

It has inspired conversation about the workplace rules and dress codes companies should legitimately be allowed to enforce.

So, we thought it was a timely moment to publish this infographic, put together by CashNet USA, which looks at some of the common workplace rules that often aggravate workers.
