Lawsuits relating to dress codes and appearance policies are on the rise. But what is permissible to include in your dress code policy - and what is not?
From flip-flops to eyebrow piercings, military fatigues to tube tops, shorty shorts to arm-length tattoos, striking the proper balance between requiring appropriate dress among your employees and respecting their rights at the same time can be tricky, especially when dealing with sensitive issues such as religious expression or speaking with younger employees who may never have worn "business clothes" and come to work daily in hoodies or T-shirts that contain potentially offensive wording on them.
So what is an employer to do, especially knowing that major mistakes in a dress code policy can cause not only dissention in the workforce, but can end up leading to huge liability for your organization?
This informative training session will help ensure that your dress code policy will have all the essentials it requires to ensure legal compliance at your organization.
Some of the many legal issues that will be addressed during this webinar include:
- What to include in a Dress Code Policy
- Key steps to avoid discrimination claims based on your Dress Code Policy
- Best practices for dealing with employees' piercing and tatoos
- Tips – and pitfalls to avoid - when dealing with religious clothing items
- Religious Accommodation under Title VII: understanding your compliance obligations when drafting a Dress Code Policy
- Tactics for dealing with employees who fail to comply with your Dress Code Policy

|About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:|
Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you
attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.
versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without
any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back
at work immediately after the session ends!
And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous
times and to share it with others in your office.
Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the
presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
