    Boss reprimanding me for wearing jeans at the workplace

    I am working in a government organisation. Our organisation has no dress code for the employees and so I prefer to wear casual tee and jeans to my workplace. But barring me all the others wear formal clothes. So just 2 days back my boss called me to his office and reprimanded me for wearing jeans to the workplace. I donít think this is fair. How to deal with such a situation?

    Hello,

    Many goverment organization has dress codes and this has been going on for years.
    Since there is no dress code it is not a crime to wear jeans at work place but you have
    made abig mistake you are working in a goverment organization. All goverment organization
    has different work culture and mindsets. So you should never wear jeans at your work place.

    Bye,

    Your working in an a government organisation its very much respected,regarding your attire is concerned you should also be professional in your approach even though you don't have any dress code but you should have some professional behavior also as you work in govt. Organisation. When all your employees along with are working in formal attire its very obvious that your pointed out.. Wearing jeans is not professional and ill dressed. Your boss was right in warning you,should always be as an employee not as an causal visitor be responsible at work.. Attire matter the most in these days..
