Waitress Shaves Hair For Charity, Told to Take Time Off. Fair?

A restaurant owner in Ontario, Canada has gotten himself into a very hairy situation. Waitress Stacey Fearnall recently raised more than $2,700 for cancer research by shaving her hair, but she claims when she showed up for work without her locks and refused to sport a wig, her boss unceremoniously told her to take the summer off without pay.

The restaurant is described as an "upscale steak and seafood eatery" and Fearnall, who is 36, had worked there for two years.

The boss said his "restaurant has certain standards prohibiting men from wearing earrings and requiring employees to keep their hair at a reasonable length," adding that the waitress is still on the payroll and can return to work when her hair grows back. My favorite part? The owner of the restaurant said all workers are expected to "dress appropriately" and that he didn't think Fearnall's look was "appropriate." Really? Would he rather she wear Britney Spears' extensions?
