Read Frequently Asked Questions

This webinar training will explain the role of HR professionals and managers in implementing discrimination-free dress code to ensure all job candidates and employees are treated fairly and equitably. Dress codes are receiving a fair amount of attention in the courts these days with number of precedent setting lawsuits dealing with dress codes’ requirements. The instructor will explain how your current dress code can discriminate against potential and current employees based on their gender, religion, and race, to name a few and lead to lawsuits.

Why Should You Attend:

From the length of one’s hair, to the number and location of visible tattoos, to recognizing gender non-conformity style, to creating a summer dress code, employers are facing an increased need to determine their organization’s culture and policies, as well as following federal and state laws. How does an organization balance employees’ rights to express themselves with the organization’s rights to determine its legitimate business needs while maintaining an inclusive work environment? The pitfalls for employers are many.

More businesses are likely to face these issues especially now that research is confirming these types of biases exist broadly across U. S. workplaces. The potential for organizational errors are plentiful. Organizations expect employees to use sound judgment in their dress and grooming, however, what if the employee’s sense of dress and grooming varies from the organizations? After all, types of self-expression have become more commonplace with society demonstrating more acceptances in people’s choices of self-expression—shouldn’t the workplace reflect this change in social rules too?

This webinar will discuss the laws pertaining to dress code at workplace and how to implement discrimination free dress code.
