When you started your job, your may have spent the better part of your first day signing contracts, learning about your duties and meeting your coworkers. Your new employer probably gave you a stack of booklets to review, one of which was an employee handbook. Even if your boss did not explain the dress code for your job, he or she may have made a point to direct your attention to those pages in the handbook.
Were you surprised at some of the stipulations in the book? Did you feel the policies were unbalanced or downright unfair? It is easy to shrug it off and believe that the boss can make any policies he or she wants to, but this is not always the case. When it comes to dress codes, employers may cross the line into discrimination.
