A dress code policy is an important policy for any employer. But what is permissible to include in such a policy and what is not? What are absolute must-haves in the policy? How do you avoid legal issues when addressing topics such as religious dress? Can an employer do anything about an employee’s tattoos or piercings? What are your options if an employee fails to comply with the policy? Employers can make major mistakes when drafting and enforcing these policies that can end up leading to huge liability for your organization, so it is essential that you craft and follow a sound policy that meets organizational needs and minimizes legal risk.

Please join Melissa Fleischer as she sorts these issues out for you and helps ensure that your dress code policy will have all the essentials it requires to ensure legal compliance at your organization.
