EXEMPTION AND OTHER CONSIDERATIONS
Religious and cultural beliefs will be taking into consideration, as will comfort for varying physical situations.
CASUAL DRESS DAYS
Clothes worn on casual dress day should be neat and tidy. All attire should follow the above guidelines with the exception of jeans.
When meeting clients on a designated “Casual Dress Day”, it may be necessary to forgo casual dress.
If an employee’s clothing is not appropriate, the employee will be given an opportunity to discuss this, and why the attire does not comply, with their manager. The employee will also be given a chance to respond.
It is important to note that ultimately what is acceptable attire will be a decision of the organisation. However, reasonable accommodation will be given to employees where required. Breaches of this policy may also lead to disciplinary action.
If any employee has queries or concerns regarding this policy, they should contact the HR Department.
