David Jones Revised Dress Policy
David Jones has advised the SDA that it is revising it’s “Wear What You Sell” preferred dress policy.
From the end of July 2017, Intimate Apparel, Shoes & Accessories and Childrenswear will revert to the “Black Out” preferred dress.
This is in addition to the departments where the “Black Out” preferred Dress currently applies i.e. Food, Home Department and Support roles.
Team members in Women’s fashion, Men’s fashion and visual merchandising continue to have the option of wearing items of clothing consistent with the “Wear What You Sell” preferred dress policy.
DRESS REQUIREMENTS FOR EMPLOYEES UNDER THE AGREEMENT
Members are reminded that Clause 5.4 of your Agreement states:
“When at work, employees shall be dressed in a neat, tidy and business-like manner at all times. Any make-up and/or jewellery worn by the employee shall also be in keeping with business-like standards'.
This means as an employee, your obligation is that you dress in a neat, tidy and business-like manner.
SDA CONSULTING WITH DAVID JONES TO MITIGATE EFFECT OF CHANGE
The SDA has informed David Jones that it expects employees working in Intimate Apparel, Shoes and Accessories and Childrenswear, who recently purchased clothing under the “Wear What You Sell” preferred dress policy, will be able to continue to wear these items of clothing.
