I was wondering if this is generally normal and accepted as part of the dress code. My employer has no real formal dress code outside of not wearing jeans and t-shirts with print on them, but they do mandate that male employees all have short haircuts and female employees have at least shoulder-long hair.
I say mandate but I don't actually know if it's just something one of the owners says that everyone follows without trying their luck in resisting it, or if it's an actual mandate. As far as I know, nobody has ever been disciplined for it, although some people got told to get a haircut or grow their hair out.
Is a haircut generally considered part of the dress code and in the employer's purview to regulate?
These are all for non customer facing roles.
