Is Your Dealership Dress Code Policy Up-To-Date?

The days are slowly getting warmer, which affects many things at your dealership, including the clothing choices that your employees make. Employee attire contributes to the overall look and feel of your dealership, employee morale, and can impact your reputation. Before things heat up, is your dealership dress code policy up-to-date?

When updating your dress code policy, you should consider what is appropriate for each of your employees based on their role, as well as on their level of customer interaction. A dress code for each department may be necessary. When deciding what to include in your dress code, consider the following:

    Your dealership’s image.
    The individual roles and responsibilities of your employees.
    Safety standards.
    Your employee privacy interests.
    Any moral problems that may arise due to your dress code.

Keep in mind that there are legal requirements that must be met when you are creating your dress code. Your dress code must not discriminate against any members of protected groups. This includes religious apparel.  If you do ban specific apparel during work hours, you must:

    Demonstrate business or safety justification for the requirements.
    Reasonably accommodate all of your employee’s religious beliefs.

Do you need a dress code policy? Contact your HRM advocate or email hrm@kpaonline.com to receive a sample policy.
