When I began my new job, I was told that I needed to wear scrubs. I could wear any color except black, denim, camouflage, or pediatric prints. So I got blue and dark red. Five sets, at $50 each set.
Two months later, and the announcement was made that they are changing the color schemes. We are going to be color coded by our job. All clinical workers who are not nurses must wear teal. The change goes into effect October 1.
So now I have $250 in scrubs that will not be wearable, another set of unreimbursed scrubs to buy, and employee expenses are no longer tax deductible.
