I am a college student who recently took a job at jack in the box so I could have a little extra income outside of my student loans. During my computer based training, I signed a corporate document that said non dangling earrings, neatly shaven beards, and tattoos that didn’t prove offensive were allowed. I have all three that meet the requirements. Afterwards I was told that this is a franchise store and that I would have to remove my ear plugs, wear a long sleeve shirt covering up my Oregon and hammer tattoo, and shave off my ‘soul patch’. I was given nothing to sign prior to employment other than the corporate policy clearly stating that my earrings, tattoos and soul patch were all within policies regulations. Can this franchise impose rules that contradict agreements I signed as part of my employment?
