An employer had a "bad hair day," and paid $70,000 for enforcing a discriminatory hair style policy. The EEOC, states and municipalities are passing more laws on employer's rights to impose restrictive appearance policies. Learn what you can and cannot do in this volatile area.

Are your Dress Code/Appearance Policies "out of fashion?" What is "appropriate" work appearance? Do you have the right to tell employees what to wear? How much can an employer dictate styles of dress, hair, perfume or jewelry? When do company appearance rules become discriminatory or violate employees' legal rights? What is an "unusual" or "strange" style? Who decides and whose values are being imposed? Employers are often shocked to find they have gone over the line. Sometimes that shock costs dearly in legal fees and damages. This webinar will cover the practical and legal issues of the current trends in employee appearance in the workplace, and what you should and shouldn't do about them.

Who Should Attend?
Human Resource Professionals, CEOs, all Managers, Board Members who set or approve policies.
