    The threat by the manager to the employee is harassment. It goes to show the ignorance of the so called civilized world on the importance of the 'Pugh' to the Sikhs. I the WW1 and WW2 the Sikh regiments retained their turbans as it was proved to be more effective than the helmets issued against shrapnel during combat. Unless the management intended to put him in harms way , that is why he was threatened with dismissal.
Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
