Oxford researcher asks: Can bosses demand you go to work naked?
Writing on the BBC website, David Edmonds, an award-winning Presenter and Oxford University Researcher, has asked a question pertinent to all HR staff: can an employer dictate your dress-code?
Well, not exactly. Rather, Edmonds asked if an employer could demand that all staff arrive for work naked? Whilst that question might elicit screams of ‘no’ from earnest HR practitioners, no Human Resources staffer would rightly question an employer’s reasonable right to dictate to a staff member that they should wear a uniform. Or, would they?
