Greater Westfield Chamber of Commerce

Managing Employee Appearance and Religious Accommodations in the Workplace

A Chamber Workshop 

Managing employee appearance in the workplace can be challenging.  Generally, private employers can set whatever dress, grooming, and appearance standards that they think are appropriate for their businesses, as long as the standards are not discriminatory.  Employers, however, have an obligation to provide reasonable accommodations for sincerely held religious beliefs, unless doing so would create an undue burden, which sometimes means making exceptions to dress and appearance standards. 

Join Attorney Timothy M. Netkovick of Royal, P.C. for a roundtable-style seminar to discuss appearance in the workplace and religious accommodations, including: 

  • An overview of religious discrimination law;
  • Dress and appearance standards;
  • Body modification (tattoos and piercings); and
  • Workplace culture, individual self-expression, and employee retention.

Royal, P.C. is a woman-owned firm that exclusively represents and counsels businesses on all aspects of labor and employment law. Timothy M. Netkovick is an attorney at Royal, P.C. He exclusively represents employers in management-side labor and employment law matters.
