A London receptionist was sent home from work after refusing to wear high heels, it has emerged.
 
近日,一名伦敦接待员因拒穿高跟鞋而被打发回家。
 
Temp worker Nicola Thorp, 27, from Hackney, arrived at finance company PwC to be told she had to wear shoes with a "2in to 4in heel".
 
When she refused and complained male colleagues were not asked to do the same, she was sent home without pay.
 
Ms Thorp said she would have struggled to work a full day in high heels and had asked to wear the smart flat shoes she had worn to the office in Embankment.
 
But instead she was told she should go and buy a pair of heels on her first day, back in December.
 
"I said 'if you can give me a reason as to why wearing flats would impair1 me to do my job today, then fair enough', but they couldn't," Ms Thorp told BBC.
 
"I was expected to do a nine-hour shift on my feet escorting clients to meeting rooms. I said 'I just won't be able to do that in heels'."
