MP’s in the UK have actually released an inquiry into the legality of compelling women to use high heels at work after a woman was sacked in London for refusing to do so.
Nicola Thorpe, a temp employee from Hackney, East London, was sent out home from a post at PricewaterhouseCoopers in December 2015 after Portico, the firm offering the personnel, said she needed to use 2? to 4? heels Guilty Soles.
On getting to the job, which was supplied by Portico on behalf of PwC, the 27-year-old said she was told she was required to use shoes with a 2 to 4? heel.
Thorpe declined, asking whether male colleagues were required to use the exact same heels, but was made fun of and sent home without being paid.
