On approved casual days, employees may dress in casual Thiel College "Spirit" clothing, including blue jeans and tee shirts, although a neat, clean appearance is expected. Employees meeting with visitors on casual days should wear appropriate attire. Department supervisors may set reasonable restrictions to clothing, jewelry or cosmetic styles, and may ask an employee to change unsuitable attire if necessary.
Uniforms may be provided for employees in specific departments. Uniforms must be neat and clean, and position-appropriate footwear should be worn. In addition, personal protective equipment must be worn where prescribed for specific tasks performed by any employee.
