Workplace dress codes?

Don't forget that the entire internet can see this!
Maybe some stuff is better discussed in the private areas!

Workplace dress codes?

Post by DrK » 07 Mar 2019, 10:28

Many companies, including 'traditional' corporate ones, are now relaxing their formerly prescriptive dress codes, or moving away from them entirely:

Likewise with tattoos, piercings, and beards:

So, what's your view on workplace dress codes?
A good way of attracting a more diverse workforce?
Or a risk to the business?

Should a line still be drawn somewhere?
If so, where?

Also, what's your take on 'dress-down Fridays'?

And don't forget if you are prescriptive in terms of your dress code and pay the NMW/NLW then this could fall foul of paying below the NMW/NLW.
For example where you specify employees wear black trousers or black shoes. Or you deduct the cost of the uniform from salary for someone on the NMW/NLW.
