Regardless of what reason the guy had for not wearing a sticker, I'd like to know if human bulletin board was in his job description.
The sticker doesn't fit any Occupational Health and Safety standards, its not there to let others know who he is.

Employers need to get real. If a person is doing a good job, is it worth getting rid of them over not wearing a sticker?
Coming up with policies like this forces the company to make a heavy stance, wear our numbers sticker or get fired.
How valued do you think the staff are?
They are being treated like little children. I am the boss, you need to do exactly what I tell you.

Me thinks this sticker issue was some sort of ploy to fire this guy. Like OP stated, we have no idea of his work ethics or how good he did  on the job.

Anyway, I doubt that is company policy, so idiot susperstition or not, he can sue.

not your typical...

The company was out of line with that though I tend to label my stuff with 666, in spite of being a Christian. Well, 666, 99, or 69. ;)

I remember seeing the clip of this story online recently.  I thought the guy was a moron for being so superstitious and the company was run by idiots for being so gangsta bout something as stupid as wearing a safety sticker.  They should've just pat the moron on the head and reassured him he didn't have to wear the evil sticker if he seriously felt it meant his soul.

Then tried to hold down the laughter after he left the office.

The guy should have found a way to get hurt on day 665 then the company would have had to start over with day one.

I want to wear the number 666 in support of this guy.

666 days without an accident, so they made at least 666 stickers? they actually counted 666 whole days? things like this make me lose faith in human beings.... The work place can be soooooo lame. How much money did they waste on 666 stickers for everyone?

And they have no right to make him wear anything. Especially for 666 days...

Unless a uniform code is specified in his work contract.

 Ill rephrase that... They dont have the right to make him wear anything thats not part of his uniform. I got serious doubts that a sticker is part of the uniform or a required piece of "clothing."
