Did you know one of the fastest-growing areas of litigation today pertains to poorly written or vague dress code policies?

In fact, plaintiffs are using traditional discrimination concepts to push the envelope in making claims of lifestyle discrimination based upon sexual orientation, gender-identity, physical appearance, and other borderline privacy/personal issues.

Body piercings … tattoos … revealing tank tops … and religion-related attire are just a few of the tough issues you need to consider for your dress code policy.

  • Can you require an employee to hide their tattoos?
  • Can you ban headwear if it's part of someone's personal expression?
  • Can you legally require an employee to take out their tongue ring during work hours?
  • Does a dress code mandating facial hair and other grooming policies invite a race discrimination claim?
  • What about dress codes related to safety rules?

This information-packed webinar explores the tools, techniques and knowledge you need to confidently handle dress code problems, and fashion a dress code policy that’s effective and defensible.
