Does your dress code change for the summer?

by on
in Human Resources,The HR Specialist Forum

With warmer weather approaching, I'm gearing up for the usual complaints about what's appropriate to wear to work. I'd like to come up with a policy that spells out a summer dress code. We want employees to be comfortable, but we also want to maintain a professional look among our staff. Can anyone share dress code language I can use?—Christy, Tulsa

Here’s ours:
Employees are expected to present a neat, clean, and businesslike appearance while on the job at all times and adhere to good personal hygiene habits in order to promote a positive public image. All clothing and shoes should be clean and in good repair. Employees presenting to the public such as court appearances, meetings with community representatives or accrediting bodies, employment interviews, etc. are to be dressed in professional business attire and reflect
the atmosphere of the work being conducted.

The following are not considered appropriate business attire for any employee:

Denim jeans of any color (except for those noted under exceptions below)
Tank tops/muscle shirts/crop tops
Sweat pants, sweat shirts, or other active wear
T-shirts with slogans/pictures
Short skirts (higher than mid-thigh)
Sheer, provocative (low cut, tight), or revealing clothing
Excessively baggy clothing
Flip flops or other beach shoes

Employees whose job or work assignments require uniforms, protective clothing, or equipment must wear such attire when necessary or as required.
