Skimpy uniforms: Do they sell? Or turn you off?

The Bier Markt has changed its dress code after two employees complained to Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario. The restaurant chain was asking female servers to wear short, tight, sleeveless cocktail dresses and heels or boots. The male servers were asked to wear jeans, a long-sleeve shirt and red sneakers.


Our guest is Toronto employment lawyer Barbara Green.

You can join a web chat with her after the show, right here at 1 o'clock.
