Can a facility in the City of Oakland, CA, Alameda County...who's job is to provide computers, phones, counseling to the public for no cost...re employment assistance...

can they tell me that I must:

1. wear long pants while using their facilities. (no shorts allowed)

I asked them if I could wear a lava lava, which is a kind of wrap of material that is like a womens skirt, worn by polynesian men. They told me that I could not wear a lava lava. Is this illegal?

2. take off my hat while using their facilities?

I asked them about wearing a turban for religious purposes and they said it would be up to me to provide them with some kind of proof in regards to whether I can or cannot wear the turban...that I could not wear a turban unless I showed them some kind of proof. I asked them what type of proof and they could not clearly define what they wanted. Is this legal?

I wrote a letter to the manager and asked to provide their legal source or to contact their legal source and ask them for their response. I don't think they plan on assisting me with my questions.

Is this legal re the

1. must wear long pants

2. must not wear hats???

Anyone like to respond with anything?
