Clearly explain dress standards to employees with a Dress Policy. Outline workplace expectations, set boundaries and communicate consequences. An employer can insist that employees wear a particular form of clothing – the Dress Policy can be written so an employer can set out its requirements and rules. The employer can also instruct employees not to wear clothing which it thinks might be offensive to customers or otherwise detrimental to the business. A dress code can cover the form of clothing itself, footwear, jewellery, hairstyles and length, tattoos and body piercing.
Case example: A Woolworths butcher was dismissed for refusing to remove his eyebrow ring while at work. The Fair Work Commission found he had refused to comply with a lawful direction of his employer and this was a valid reason for his dismissal. See Woolworths Limited t/a Safeway v Brown  AIRCFB
