Dress Policy

Version 1.1 Updated 7 Oct 2021
Policy Manage

Who can use this policy
This policy can be used by all employers.

Employers have the right to prescribe standards of dress at work that are reflective of the culture and corporate image of the business. However, the standards set should be reasonable, having regard to the type of work and the industry in which the work is performed.

Employers should ensure that the Policy is applied consistently and in a manner that is not discriminatory (i.e. in contravention of various state and federal anti-discrimination laws). The Policy should enforce a standard that is common to all employees but is sensitive to different cultures, religious practices, ages, and disabilities.  

It is also important that the Policy take into account any occupational health and safety requirements and the nature of the workplace and work being performed.
