Tater , It's not about you or your perceived rights in the workplace. Somewhere you have wrongfully concluded that somehow you still own yourself in
the business owners realm. You do not! Don't believe me??...ask a contract law Attorney!!
I suspect this is due to your naivete and mundanity. And as countless posters have tried to explain to you, that by continuously ignoring the
perceptions that are afforded subtle exhibitionists.Particularly when being judged for retention or promotion.
That is the perception you are projecting now. In this thread. Without even knowing it. And we can't even see your cleavage.
When it comes to businesses decisions, quality of character plus being intellectually sophisticated and worldly through cultivation or experience are

Again, It's perception perception perception!
In my Engineering consulting company...most definitely.
In my Custom chopper shop...not so much. Can you tig weld?? My welders do not show their cleavage by choice..(rapid and painful sunburn!) But the
Models do! Again, because it is part of the job I pay them for. Not their welding skills.

protocol has left us no choice but to terminate your employment immediately." "Now hit the bricks..Chick!" In most "employment at will" States, This
is completely within their rights, as an employer.
And you would waste money paying a lawyer to battle it. Because, for example, they really fired you for being late to work more than 3 times in the
last 6 months..Or some such "loophole".
Now you have come to the brutal realization that their prerogative to keep you, trumps your prerogative to show your cleavage..at least in their
