Should employers be allowed to discriminate against dreadlocks? | The Tylt
The 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals recently ruled that refusing to hire someone because they have dreadlocks is legal. The court ruled it is not discriminatory for an employer to include hairstyles in a "race-neutral grooming policy" because hair is not an "immutable physical characteristic." But critics argue allowing employers to discriminate against a hairstyle associated with black culture and Rastafarianism is textbook racism. What do you think? 💇🏿
