A company has implemented a policy to require all employees to shave facial hair. The company has issued an ultimatum that either employees shave or they will be terminated. Can they legally terminate an employee for having facial hair? The employees were hired having facial hair and were not told to shave when hired. Many have been employees for 10+ years. Is there any legal recourse for this?

Re: Facial hair
Yes, the termination would be legal. A company does not need any reason at all to fire someone, but can use a bad reason if it wants to do so. Similarly, the employees can leave for no reason, or a bad reason.
