Personal Appearance of Employees
An employee's dress and grooming should be appropriate to the
work situation and should reflect the highest standards of
professionalism and cleanliness.
Every office and professional employee has some contact with
the public. Employees are requested to be aware and
conscientious of their personal hygiene and of neatness in
attire. Strong odors or excessive use of perfumes or cologne
are inappropriate. Each employee is our representative in
appearance as well as in actions.
Accordingly, clinical employees must wear clothing
appropriate to their job duties; the personal appearance of
office workers is governed by the standards outlined below.

professional looking at all times. The employees must
wear their name tags.

clothes or take other appropriate corrective action.
The employee will not be compensated during such time
away from work, and repeated violations of this policy
will be cause for disciplinary action.
