Here's the seminar description:
More and more frequently, the argument is made that there should be a law against 'lookism,' or appearance discrimination, in the workplace. This live audio conference will explore whether appearance discrimination is a significant problem, which laws already address it, and how a law might be written to outlaw it specifically. This program will better equip managers and human resources professionals to understand what an employer may lawfully require regarding employees' appearance, such as dress codes and grooming requirements and prohibitions against visible piercings and tattoos, to what extent beards and religious dress must be accommodated, and how to avoid hiring discrimination claims based on appearance.
Lol, should there be a law against lookism or are the current discrimination laws sufficient?
Can bias based on visual appearance be legislated out of the workplace? This seminar seems focused on hiring, but can you imagine what it could mean to be able to claim lookism in the workplace based on a pimple or a bad hair day or sweaty armpits?
Should there be laws against smellism or hearism?
Do you think anyone will pay $209.00 (US) to listen to this audio-seminar (visuals could lead to Lookism)?
