Most women would allude to the fact that they feel confident when they wear high heels.
It is not surprising that when a company launched a "No high heels" ay work rule, one woman challenged the controversial rule.
In 2015, Tharisa Minerals, whose core asset is Tharisa Mine, adopted a policy and procedure covering issues of health and safety at the mine and one of the clauses was that “appropriate shoes must be worn at all times. Slippers, high heels and open shoes are not allowed.”
This did not sit down well with some employees but they dared to say anything.
Litshani Mofokeng, who worked at the company as a human resources co-ordinator from September 2013, was observed on September 11 2017 wearing high heels.
She was subsequently dismissed as she was not in compliance with the new laws.
She challenged her dismissal with the labour courts deeming it unlawful.
Mofokeng has since won her court battle and the company has been ordered to reinstate her.
