A dress and appearance policy (or dress code) is a set of guidelines to make it easy for employees to know what is appropriate to wear to work. It can also help companies to be sure employees are presenting themselves well in meetings and interactions with clients and customers.
Dress and appearance
The Company wishes to portray a professional business image to its clients and customers. As a result, the Company operates minimum standards of dress and appearance, which requires employees to dress in a manner that is suitable and appropriate to the Company's business.
All employees are required to be neat, clean, well-groomed and presentable whilst at work, whether working on the Company's premises or elsewhere on Company business.
[You will be required to wear a staff uniform consisting of [insert details] which the Company will provide. The Company will provide you with [insert number] sets of uniform in your size and you will be responsible for its laundry. On the termination of your employment, you will be required to return your uniform on your last day of work. If you fail to do so, you agree that the Company shall be entitled to deduct a sum equal to the second-hand replacement value of your uniform from your final salary payment.]
If as part of your job duties you come into contact with the Company's clients or customers, you must adhere to the following minimum dress and appearance standards:
- you should wear a business suit (comprising jacket plus co-ordinating trousers, skirt or dress) in a discreet colour and a smart shirt or blouse whilst working. Male employees must also wear a tie*
The full Dress and appearance policy will be available once purchased.
