Read Frequently Asked Questions

Course "Handling Sensitive Dress Code Issues without Getting Sued" has been pre-approved by HRCI as eligible for 1.5 credits towards a participant's recertification upon full completion.
“The use of this seal is not an endorsement by the HR Certification Institute of the quality of the program”.

Why Should You Attend:

  • Can you require an employee to hide her tattoos?
  • 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?
  • Can an employee legitimately dispute a no-smoking policy?

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

A server at a restaurant was fired because of the tattoos on his wrists, and he was eventually rewarded with $150,000 in damages.

Employers must find a happy medium between requiring appropriate dress among your employees and respecting their legal rights. It is critical to establish a balance between conservative workers who favor more formal business attire and those who want the freedom to wear their lifestyle choices.
Attend this Webinar to understand how to implement/change a dress code policy or how to make process so as to spend less time on dress-code-related problems.
