That's OK Louis! We all make mistakes! tfreddy42 you just keep posting! Everyone has a right to comment! You are correct! It is discrimination. I understand that an employer wants to hire an employee who looks respectable. Good business practice and all that. But if a person is clean, honest,and educated enough for the job, and just happens to have INK, they should not be discriminated against! peaceout sammigirl
thank you sammigirl

that is where u are wrong u need to have your facts before u comment
I was a consultant on labor law issues for 30 years. If you doubt me, contact the EEOC. In Georgia an employer can hire or not hire or terminate an employee for that matter for any reason or no reason at all as long as their civil rights are not violated. Having a tattoo or piercings are not protected under the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

Thank you. I really didn't think that would be discrimination when that was mentioned. Although some may not understand the law.

I could give a care less what u use to be u do know that the labor laws can change every year so at the time that u might have been doing that could very well have changed by now. And if I was to apply for a job and I did not get it because the employer seen that I had tattoos and I found out that being the reason u can beat your pretty little ass I would sue the hell out of that employer for that very reason

Sorry, but it doesn't matter. Georgia is a "Right To Hire, Right To Fire" state. Unless your Civil Rights have been violated, you have no case. Tats do not fall under "Civil Rights". And no...the rules in Georgia have not changed, so you goo ahead and sue... you'll lose. I'm not being contrary, just stating the facts.

If I do not like someone because they have pictures drawn all over their arms, I do NOT have to hire them because they are protected.You cannot descriminate against race, religion creed ,sex it says nothing about if they have pictures drawn all over them.SO NO, your not going to work for me.IF you come in with a long sleeve shirt on and earrings, NO, sorry.. , IF I like the way you explain yourself, I may ask you for a second interview to see if oyu wear a short sleeve shirt to see if you are all painted up. I DO NOT Have to hire oyu just because you APPLY for a job.. TATTOOS are TACKY as HELL to employers and they do not want their customers having to deal with someone with pictures drawn all over themselves, earrings in their lips, nose eyelids, sorry, its the truth why your NOT BEING HIRED. Clean up your act,present yourself like a human being and not a freak show and maybe you will get a job.

Your lawyer friend must not be a labor law attorney. He is wrong. Call the EEOC.

I would think from his post that his lawyer friend is a criminal lawyer type or one of those that will sue for anything

A piece of paper printed from
An online site doesn't make anyone a lawyer. Companies are entitled to dress codes pure and simple. Discrimination is limited to certain bases.

So...I take it from your blanket statement that "piercings are gross" that you also object to dainty feminine earrings in a woman's ears too.

I have a teeny tiny dainty diamond on the side of my nose. Most people don't even see it and are surprised when they do because it is so tiny. I agree that gawdy rings and crap poking out of noses, eyebrows and the like are not attractive at all. Neither are huge earrings that weigh a ton and dangle down past the shoulders, stretching the earlobe to unfathomable lengths.(IMO) But....I also believe that people have the right to do as they wish with their own bodies. And for the record....tattooing and piercing have been around for thousands of years. In most countries they are completely acceptable. Of course, in the USA, there are so many prudes it's crazy. The practice has nothing to do with intelligence or the ability to work. I give you an example....the class president of my son's senior class had piercings, tattoos and hair down to his waist. He graduated with a 4.0 GPA and went college on a full scholarship and now works at M.I.T.

Oh...and he still has all the stuff you people object to......

You are welcome to move and find a country that you don't have to put down. Our differences is what makes this country a special place to live.

Donnie, I have tattoos however they can be hidden easily. Personally I believe if you are going to put art on yourself then it should be something with meaning not just because you think it looks good but that is my opinion. My question to you this this; had I came in for an interview and you did not see these tattoos and I was qualified for the position, you hire me and one day I wear something where 1 of the tattoos can be seen. Would you fire me?

only an idiot would conclude that a tattoo would be protected by civil rights... many employers have dress and/or appearance codes... all legal too!!! l8tr
