Handling Sensitive Dress Code Issues without Getting Sued
9 November |10:00 am - 1:00 pm GMT199
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.
