HR Expert: Dress Code Requirements

A client has told me a female employee has failed to wear high heeled shoes or makeup to work several times this week in line with their dress code policy. What should they do about this?”

However, in light of recent events they should carefully consider where certain dress code requirements may be tantamount to discrimination and look to change their policies accordingly.
