Dutch supermarket drops staff underwear photo request

The Netherlands' top supermarket chain said Tuesday it has ditched plans to ask staff to upload photos of themselves in their underwear to work out sizes for new uniforms. "I saw a poster hanging in our canteen and I was shocked," 17-year-old Jochem de Haes, who works at the Nijmegen branch, told NRC. Albert Heijn insisted the plan was voluntary and was aimed at helping bring in new uniforms for staff at its 1,000 Dutch stores.
