    i just got a job at Lowe's and they swab tested me when i was hired. now i was wondering if anyone would have any idea if i decided to get dreadlocks in the next few months, would they randomly drug test me... or fire me... or tell me have to get rid of them? or anything.

    im going to make them not to small but small and clean looking and im going to make sure i take good care of them... i can't wait to get them:D

    That's discrimination isn't it?

    I don't know. Could they get away with it if they said they were doing it to keep up a reputation? Doesn't seem like they should be able to, but who knows. Laws are often ridiculous.

    if they tell you no dreads, then no dreads- depending on where you live some companies have the right to dictate your hairstyle, such as working in a dangerous position, around machines, or with food. it really depends on what you'll be doing at lowes.

    but if you decide to grow dreads, they can't drug test you just for growing dreads- thats discrimination and they can get fucked sideways for that shit.

    then dont' tell anyone anything, keep your mouth shut about all your personal shit and every illegal thing you do, its not their business anyways.

    and if you need this job so badly, you'll quit doing whatever it is you're doing that could keep you from getting this job until you've established yourself in your new job & neighborhood- use common sense.

    lol who told you that? Ofc they wont tell you its because you got dreads. They can drug test you whenever they want.
     
  11. Common sense? Pray tell what the fuck is that?

    check the dress code and guidelines maybe it says something in there, it wouldn't be fair if you couldn't if you kept them up / presentable

    SE I think telling a kid not to work and grow weed instead, is not very responsible of you. Especially since you have some kind of weird celebrity status with the younger posters.
    Just saying....
     
  17. You might as well be spittin' in the wind with that post.


    You're right though. If he's dumb enough to not work and grow weed he had it coming.

    as someone else said, they can just say the drug test is for some other reason, check their dress code, i doubt they have anything in there, and heres an idea, tell them your going to get dreads and hear what they say. dont find out AFTER you put in work on your dreads. if they say you cant get them then just leave or make some kind of deal.

    meh. its only irresponsible to say grow weed because its illegal and we are suposed to obey the LAW!!!!!. but i agree. leaglize the herb. :cheers2:
