Legal Principals Surrounding Regulating Employee Appearance

Make sure your current dress code policies aren't a ticking time bomb for litigation.

Make sure you are in compliance with the EEOC rules. With the increase of the #MeToo movement and the growing and urgent need to embrace diversity, now is the time for employers to make sure their dress code and appearance policies aren't a ticking time bomb. Employers need to be able to set and manage policies, to identify and mitigate legal issues (such as protected class considerations), and to work with employee requests for accommodations. This topic will address workplace dress and appearance, including policy considerations, challenges (including discrimination issues) and best practices. This material will assist those in understanding how to address existing dress and appearance policies to ensure compliance with federal and state laws, local laws and Equal Employment Opportunity Commission rules.
