Can my employer make me pay for uniforms?
State law generally determines who pays for a work uniform.
I work for a restaurant, and we have to wear a uniform. We have to wear a particular brand of black slacks, a white dress shirt, and a vest with the name of the restuarant on it. It isn't as bad as all the flair on Jennifer Aniston's suspenders in Office Space, but it still isn't anything I'd wear off the job. The restuarant provides the uniforms, but it deducted the original cost, and now the cost of cleaning and pressing, from our paychecks. Is this legal?
