Do private sector companies have the rights to impose dress codes like no sleeveless blouse, skirts must be longer below knee, no tight fitting dresses? Some ladies in the company gets warning letters for not conforming :rolleyes:

Yes. It's part of the company policy to maintain their image.

Yes, they have the right to enforce dress codes although many companies don't. However if they impose on wearing uniforms, the company need to provide these uniforms.

In Coca-Cola Singapore, the company provide Coca-Cola jeans, T-shirts and caps... many different designs. Only during official functions, do we wear shirt and ties, other days its T-shirts and jeans.... when we visit key customers we will need to be in shirts and ties....

sounds like Taliban sanctioned policies.. but then again, if not happy with uniform/dress codes... leave la... companies have every right to tell you what to wear (or not to wear...) if they EMPLOY you...

Company Has the right to impose such actions PROViDED the dress code policy is spelt out in the handbook, or there were early notification via a meeting or any form of announcement where staff are given notice to adjust or conform.

The more interesting question is whether the company has the right to impose 'dress code' on visitors or suppliers??

They can impose on suppliers who will have to comply if they (the suppliers) want to do business. However to do so on visitors and especially customers would be stupid.

It may be a way for the company to protect their image. especially in a malay company is not wise to wear so short and so little. is better to cover more body parts as a sign of respect to the person herself and the company.

The policy just started, not stated in handbook and announced on notice board. Caused a big hoohah cos come people were hauled up for "counselling". I thought that this being the 21st century, there should be more tolerance towards "modern" dressing. The last time I heard of such policy was when I was in the local Uni eons ago.

Company policy comes first....unless it is against the law. Since you gonna work there and continue receiving salary from them, better follow.

What if it's the company policy where: 'tighter', 'shorter', 'less' and 'more' is the dress code? :cool:

Heheh.. I guess if you sign up with the company and it's already spelled out in the employment agreement, one agrees to it.
If it's a new dress code during the course of your tenure there, you have the right to object, request for a transfer, excluded from the dress code if you have proper reasons or you could resign (case of constructive dismissal).

HR policies change over time. these do not have to be part of your contract. dun like, dun work there. same everywhere else.

it all depends on the type of industry u r in lah. Some required u to dressed up like a stuffed penguin all knotted up to the neck and in black X 6days too!
And there are those who wanna u to dressed up liek the next person..all looking like robots or clones of the bosswannabes!

others practise a friday dressingdown lah...the lower for the ladies the better in my books. :D

Where i came from, we got people dressing in tee & jeans everyday...some even in costume just for the heck of it! Others in see-thru itsybitsy blouse, low cut or micro-mini (with thunder tights!) Or even choong-kinda tight fitting kurung up to the slender sexy neck :p ...And guys can be in bermudas, camo or sarong..usually stoned outta mind too! but tassa nother story :p

Better be own boss..then can dress in anything you want...best in birthday suit!
