Lady Fired 30mins After Getting Dream Job Because Of Her Tattoo by baski92(m): 6:25pm On Sep 25, 2015
A woman who landed her ‘perfect’ job was fired half an hour later after
the company learned she had a tattoo on her hand. Claire Shepherd
applied for the role of retail merchandiser at logistics centre Dee Set
in her home city of Swansea, Wales. Clearly impressed with her
experience, the 27-year-old was offered the position after passing a
telephone interview with ‘flying colours’.
However, after discovering that Claire had inkings on her hand – which
would be difficult to cover up – the firm backtracked and said they could
not hire her as the design may ’cause offence’.
Frustrated Claire, who got the intricate tattoo that extends from her
forefinger, over her hand and on to her forearm 18 months ago, vented
her anger on Facebook. She told her followers:
‘I got a new job today! And then I got sacked within half an hour. I
had a telephone interview today with Dee Set for a retail
merchandiser and was happy when at the end of the phone call she told
me I had the position and would be starting next week. The company
then sent me an e-mail with their dress standards. As I read it I was
gutted as they noted that all tattoos must be covered up as they are
likely to cause offence.
Thinking that this was an ‘old standard e-mail the company sent out’,
Claire contacted Dee Set, hoping that their views had changed and
explained that her emblem wouldn’t affect her work.
She continued: ‘I have 6 years previous experience in managerial roles
and my tattoos have never been an issue. That is until I applied for a
role with Dee Set that work with Tesco, Asda, Boots and other
chains. I was shocked when they replied and said they would no longer
be employing me as I would not be able to cover my tattoos. They
clearly thought I had something to offer and would be the right person
for the job as they had already offered me the position,’ she said.
‘I’m shocked that people still discriminate against visible tattoos. I just
didn’t think this happened any more. I’m totally disgusted,’ she said
while ending her rant.
Claire’s rant has been shared nearly 2,000 times now and re-tweeted by
American plus-size model Tess Holliday, who is a fellow ink devotee.
