Grooming attire hygiene

  2. 2. Attire in the Workplace
  3. 3. Why?  Keep the workplace free from unnecessary distractions and annoyances  Neat and clean appearance  Appropriate for setting and work to be performed  Professional, business-like image to clients  Acceptable personal appearance is an ongoing requirement of employment
  4. 4. Example  Any staff member who does not meet the attire or grooming standards set by his or her department will be subject to corrective action and may be asked to leave the premises to change clothing. Hourly paid staff members will not be compensated for any work time missed because of failure to comply with designated workplace attire and grooming standards.
  5. 5. Business Attire  For men, business attire includes a long- sleeved dress shirt, tie, tailored sport coat worn with dress trousers (not khakis) and dress shoes.  For women, business attire includes tailored pantsuits, businesslike dresses, coordinated dressy separates worn with or without a blazer, and conservative, closed-toe shoes.
  6. 6. Can my employer tell me how to dress?  Yes. In general, employers are allowed to regulate their employees' appearance, as long as they do not end up discriminating against certain employees. It is very common, for example, for an employer to require his/her employees to wear a uniform so that all employees appear uniform.  In today's work world, more employers are requiring more formal attire. While in the last decade there was a trend for employers to be more laid back, and they allowed such things as "casual Friday," in the last three to four years, some employers are taking a step back towards requiring a more formal way of dressing. Many employers feel that more formal attire means more productive employees.
  7. 7. Can my employer tell me how to groom?  Yes. Your employer is allowed to tell you how to groom, at the very least to the extent that your employer is simply asking you to be generally clean and presentable on the job.
  8. 8. Is it legal for my boss to allow different grooming policies for men and women?  Yes. Employers are allowed to enforce different dress code standards for women and men. However, they may not impose a greater burden on either gender.  Example: long hair
  9. 9. Is my boss allowed to tell me to cover up my tattoos and piercings?  Yes. Many employers are worried that piercings or tattoos will offend customers and they are allowed to tell you to cover your "body art".
