Workplace dress code: Necessary or outdated?
from By: Terri Williams (commentary)
In 2016, Nicola Thorpe, a London-based temporary receptionist at one of the Big Four accounting firms, gained international attention when she was sent home from work for violating dress code, which required women to wear heels between 2 to 4 inches high. Thorpe started a petition in the U.K., which led to a fierce debate. The dress code came from Thorpe's temporary employment agency, not the accounting firm. And, the temp agency's dress code also included other stipulations. This policy was rather extreme, but is it necessary to even have a dress policy?
