Law firm axes employees for wearing orange

The Fort Lauderdale law firm of Elizabeth R. Wellborn, P.A. apparently has several openings. Tip for job-seekers: Don’t wear orange to the interview.

Earlier this spring, the firm fired 14 workers who all wore orange shirts to work one day. They said they donned the gaudy attire in preparation for an after-work party.

The firm’s partners saw something more nefarious. They interpreted the sartorial synchronicity as some sort of protest and fired everyone who wore orange. (Some have since been reinstated.)

So do the ex-employees have a case? No. If they had been protesting, they would have been covered by the National Labor Relations Act. Since they were just dressed to party, the law firm is off the hook.
