We have no official dress code. We do have people in certain jobs that have to wear safety gear – boots, vests, hard hats, etc. But our average office worker does not have a specific agency wide dress code.

Some of our offices do have a ‘no jeans’ policy, usually the ones interfacing with the public – big surprise there.

There has been talk about implementing a state wide minimum dress code…but I think in this time of layoffs, cutbacks, no COLA raises telling the very same employees that they have to go out and purchase specific types of clothing isn’t something that would go over well (Not to mention that there are blue collar aspects that simply can’t comply…wanna wear a pair of dockers and a dress shirt to clean out a clogged drain or pipe?)
