Banned worker has a new trick up his kilt

A
Birmingham man banned from wearing jeans in the office is protesting by coming
to work in a kilt instead.

Jobcentre
Plus worker Dennis Fitzpatrick claims a new dress code requiring men to wear
trousers, shirt and tie amounts to sex discrimination.

Earlier
this month, Fitzpatrick’s colleague Ian Jarman said he planned to take his
bosses to an employment tribunal over the rules.

The
Department for Work and Pensions said they had no intention of scrapping the
dress code.

Fitzpatrick
has teamed his kilt with a lumberjack’s shirt and pink tie.

"I
think I look stupid," he said.
