Dress Code

ACAS ISSUES NEW GUIDANCE ON DRESS CODE by Macroberts Solicitors

This week, ACAS issued new guidance about employee dress codes which employers might find useful. The key principles laid down in the guidance include:

Employers must avoid unlawful discrimination in a dress code policy (for example religious dress should be approached sensitively)

  • Employers may use a dress code policy for health and safety reasons
  • Dress codes must ensure equality between men and women. However it is noted that there may be different requirements applicable to each
  • Employers must make reasonable adjustments for disabled people

When drafting a dress code policy, employers are encouraged to fully consider the reasoning behind the policy. ACAS also recommend consulting with employees about it in some cases. Having a clearly drafted policy can avoid inconsistent practices being applied across a business.
