Employee fired for tattoos takes action
Published : May 16, 2011
WARWICK, RI – A local man is gathering support and getting ready to sue his former employer.
Nathan Hardisty was fired from the Walgreens at Hoxie Four Corners in Warwick because he reportedly has too many tattoos.
On Saturday, several people gathered outside the store to protest his firing.
The 26-year-old Warwick man says he was hired with tattoos showing, got great performance reviews and was even promoted to shift manager without any problems until a few weeks ago.
He says the store fired him after one customer complained about his tattoos.
Walgreens wouldn’t comment, only saying it’s their policy to not give out information about employee termination.
