    Thread derail alert!

    If you are required to wear a uniform (as in an outfit that is not able to be worn elsewhere- not just a white shirt/black trouser style uniform for example), then, yes, it must generally be either provided by the employer at no charge, or you must be paid an allowance to cover the cost of purchasing it yourself.

    Requiring employees to purchase their own informs without an recompense is a classic employer move (often in the retail and hospitality sector).

    Terms like "may" and "in general" means it's not compulsory they provide

    Ouch! I'd better start saving my pennies. The job I just scored is in the service deli at Woolworths. Will have to be careful with my uniform once I get it. I won't be able to afford to replace components of it too often.

    I don't work at Woolies...or in a supermarket at all, so hopefully it will be cheaper for you

    How does the person commenting know that the OP doesn't desperately need that $20 herself? How rude!

    It is rude and she may well, but...to give it context, every single post today has been about where to donate, how to help people etc so I guess it was bad timing on her part. Lots of people here have family in the CFS and it's on everyone's mind.

    I don't agree with the delivery but I did think maybe she could have waited til the morning :-)
