  • uniforms

    The company I work for requires that we wear uniforms with the company name on the shirts. They make us buy the uniforms from the company. Its getting cold out now so I started wearing my jacket but they said we had to wear company jackets but we have to buy them if we want one or don't wear a jacket. I feel since it has company name and we can't get are own then they should supply us with the uniforms. Am I wrong?

    There is no such federal requirement. What state are you talking about?

        You spoke too soon, that's why DAW asked what state. Unfortunately, SC requires the employer only to pay for (most) personal protective equipment, such as safety glasses, steel-toed boots, etc.

        Can you purchase them from the company (or through the company-authorized vendor) and pay through payroll deductions over time? Such deductions cannot bring you below minimum wage.

        Not saying this is fair. Personally, I think employers should pay for specialty clothing. However, your state doesn't require it. How about a heavy sweater or similar underneath the shirt? Better than nothing.
        I don't respond to Private Messages unless the moderator specifically refers you to me for that purpose. Thank you.

          My company orders the stuff and keeps it in a storage room till someone needs something. And yes they Just take it out of your check. They said it has to be company issued. I told them to " issue" me a jacket and I would wear it. My definition for issued was different than theirs. And yes wal-mart is on my to do list for under shirts
