What Not To Wear: How Employers Can Fashion And Enforce A Workplace Dress Code Policy
|Date / Time:
Can you ban an employee tattoo even if it's part of a religious practice? Can you ban headwear if it's part of someone's personal expression? What about dress codes related to safety rules? Do you allow workers to wear T-shirts with offensive slogans or pictures? Employers today are facing these questions and more as they try on different dress codes to find the right fit.
Although no one has written a eulogy for the business suit just yet, the workplace is much more relaxed than it used to be when it comes to attire. Business casual isn't your parents' business casual anymore.
How employees dress makes a statement about their organization, but dress codes are loosening up as body expressions such as piercings and tattoos are becoming more commonplace. It's necessary to balance the need for employees to look professional while still being realistic about their need for self-expression, which can help with recruitment and retention - and prevent lawsuits.
Participate in this interactive webinar, and in just 90 minutes, you'll learn:
- The top five biggest legal landmines when it comes to addressing employee dress codes and how you can avoid them
- Your accommodation obligations for religious attire
- Where your employees' rights end and your boundaries of professionalism begin when it comes to tattoos, piercings, and more
- If you can consider an applicant's attractiveness in making hiring decisions
- What discrimination issues you should consider when devising dress codes
- Special obligations that may apply to transgenders
- And much more...
