Dress Codes And Appearance Policies
An article by Andria Lure Ryan about dress codes and appearance policies was featured in Digital Economics.
A well-drafted appearance policy should address all aspects of employee dress and appearance and explain that the company's professional atmosphere is maintained, in part, by the image it presents to its patients, visitors, and vendors, Andria wrote.
Andria explained how to define what a professional, neat, well-groomed appearance would be.
She also explained employers should take any employee complaints that the policy interferes with their legally protected rights.
