Dress code at work: how far are you prepared to go?


"I want everyone working in this bank to come to work on Monday naked," ordered the bank manager. Hmm, would it really be acceptable for an employer to demand this? And if not, what makes a dress code reasonable or unreasonable? David Edmonds dons his thinking cap.


Question: What do tattoos, crucifixes, headscarves, beards and high-heeled shoes have in common?

Answer: they've all been the subject of sackings and disputes between employers and employees.

There was the London receptionist given the boot for not wearing high-heels, the Belgian receptionist told to hang up her hat for wearing a headscarf, the woman sacked for wearing a crucifix, the employees branded intolerant for objecting to tattoos and the firm in the cross hairs for banning facial fuzz.

All these stories raise the question of what an employer can require that their employees wear. Can they legitimately impose on their staff any dress code they wish?

yeah as are hours of work and job requirements and duties... i mean what do you mean i have to cook french fries? how dare you tell me i have to work!

if you do not like the rules at one job do apply down the road.


as long as it is not a crime...do it or do not do it but just be ready for a consequence.
