Employers need to dust down summer dress-codes

With the sun starting to shine employers are being warned to
implement a summer dress-code to avoid disputes with staff.

Employment lawyers Charles Russell claim that organisations
could find themselves with discrimination or harassment charges as well as
claims of breaching the Human Rights Act against them without a dress-code
policy.

“If an employer does not have an adequate dress policy in
place, they might face legal problems if employees decide to ‘bare all’. Not
only would other employees be entitled to complain, but an employee dressed in
the bare minimum could be open to harassment,” explained Gabriella Wright, an
associate at Charles Russell.
