Woman’s Feet Bruised And Bloodied After She Was Forced To Wear Heels All Day

A 21-year-old Canadian woman says her feet were left bruised and bloodied after she was forced to endure an all-day training session at local restaurant reports CBC News:

A former employee says that during a Joey Restaurants’ training session she was required to wear high heels as part of the dress code, leaving her feet bloodied, but the company is calling it a misunderstanding and says its code allows the wearing of wedges, flats or heels.

The 21-year-old Edmonton woman, whom CBC News has agreed not to name, took a photo of her bloodied feet from wearing high heels during a training session in late April.

Her friend, Nicola Gavins, posted it on Facebook and it has garnered a lot of criticism of the Vancouver-based company.

The woman says she was told by her manager that she had to wear heels, a minimum of a one-inch heel and a maximum of a three-inch heel. She also got a training manual from Joey that said the same.

Joey says its current guidelines require both female and male staff to wear a black dress shoe that is non-slip with a thick sole for safety reasons.

‘Under this guide, they choose what is comfortable for them. There is no minimum height when it comes to our shoe policy,” said Sasha Perrin, a communications manager for Joey based in Vancouver, in an email to CBC.
