On another thread there’s a discussion about a young officer who felt they were sexually harassed & one of their minor complaints was about being told what to wear while grabbing a snack. Her majors complaints were so much larger & grave. I didn’t want to diminish the importance of the overall discussion by nitpicking what is acceptable clothing in public areas & figured I would start a separate thread.
One guy said the only requirement where he worked was no flip flops & closed toe foot wear required. I think I’ve nearly seen it all at different companies over the years for galley/mess area attire & restrictions. No work clothes, no coveralls, no clothes that expose armpits or belly button, no exercise clothes, no flip flops, no Crocks, Crocks only if they have working heel straps, no tank tops, no sleeping clothes, no exposed underwear, no underclothes only. The first company I worked for had no policy at all as far as I can remember.
So how about it? Is it okay for guys & gals to visit the mess in skimpy sleeping clothes or half dressed before hitting the gym?
Is the expectation different for males than females when it comes to dress code where you work(ed)?
