Spanish Worker Suspended For Bermuda Shorts

July 5, 2015

While Bermuda shorts represent normal business attire here on the island, not every workplace in every part of the work views them the same way, with a Spanish prison mentor recently suspended for one month without pay for wearing the shorts “during stiflingly hot weather.”

A Yahoo UK article says, “The mentor showed up at Jaen prison in Andalucia donning the funky beachwear this time last year.

“Temperatures were regularly soaring past 40 degrees Celsius – more than 10 degrees higher than the hottest parts of the UK today.

“His job was to informally talk to inmates as they took time out in the yard. It’s therefore understandable that he may have wanted to dress down a little.

“But his clothing conduct was deemed not acceptable by senior officials, who launched a year-long investigation into his actions. It ended in him being suspended.

“The UGT trade union is fuming over the “heavy handed” decision, and has called for the director of the Andalucian penitentiary centre to quit or be fired. The prison has not commented on the suspension.”
