    What do I do if my new help refuses to wear the proper footwear? Would you fire this employee, or let them slide?

    I would take and post more pictures until said new hired hand agrees to comply.

    thats a tuff decision, especially if the employee is a good worker..

    why not try this approach=>take the employee aside(perhaps a nice cool hotel room)explain to the employee your concern regarding proper foot wear........:cool:

    if the employee still does not understand, kindly reverse roles with her....ask her to pretend to be the 'boss'....:blush:

    ask her to undress and put on your clothes, and in turn u will undress and wear her clothes,footwear n all...:blob2:

    then ask her if she would be concerned ,as she is now the boss, with your footwear....:cool2:
