Summer Business Style

7.5.12

New Jersey Managing Partner Rosemary Gousman was quoted in the article "Summer Business Style" posted on a blog called MintLife. The article was about what is considered appropriate dress in the workplace. Rosemary said that there is only one person who can determine what is or is not office appropriate in a particular workplace: the boss. Barring religious accommodation issues (like headscarves or yarmulkes), an employer has every right to tell their employees what to wear to work without many restrictions. She noted that if there is a clear and consistent suggested mode of dress for both men and women, it's generally both legal and acceptable. "When you do have rules of professional dress, make sure you have the same rules for men and women. If you require professional dress, it should be for both."
