I think there are several factors here: Do you have a job where you face public (there was a russian singer who lost the gig at the Wagner Festspiele because he had a swastika tattooed) or customers? Does the Tattoo make a political statement? Does it appear to the educated or uneducated third person (think customers) to make a political statement (The ...

It is less about discrimination but about business needs, and also attitude/maturity. First, there is business need. I have a friend who works in gastronomy, she is tattooed all over. Which, personally, I find repulsive, but hey... it's her body, not mine. At work, she wears a buttoned-up white blouse covering her arms down to the wrists. She has to do that ...

So worldwide, are there laws against discriminating tattoos? I did some Googling, and it appears that Victoria, Australia might have a quasi ban on discriminating against those with tattoos, but it is by no means firm. The rest of the world, you seem to be out of luck. Are there jobs/fields where tattoos are really unwelcome, i.e. you can do the job ...

It's highly location, culture, and tattoo-specific. UK police forces have recently relaxed their tattoo policy to allow visible tattoos, but tattoos which indicate alignment alignment with a particular group which could give offence to members of the public or colleagues be considered inflammatory, rude, lewd, crude, racist, sexist, sectarian, ...

While having tattoos today is less a stigma then it used to be, there's still a degree of "unspoken" discrimination against people that have visible tattoos, especially as it relates to what kind of tattoo and where it is on your body. Some tattoos and tattoo placements are always going to create potential problems in terms of getting hired into certain ...

If you're working, you're representing the company. Dress accordingly. I wouldn't go fully to t-shirts and jeans, personally, because that implies a degree of slobbiness and thus a lack of professionalism - you might think that you'll be the only ones in the office, but that might not necessarily be true. While you certainly won't go wrong wearing your ...

Chill work environment, small company Weekend Only ones in the office Canada Yes, you'll be more than fine wearing jeans and t-shirt. Very formally dressed up you'll possibly even look a little bit out of place - as you'll see, there is a different atmosphere on a quiet weekend meeting like this, compared to the usual weekdays. Casual appears a lot more ...

I would ask you manager in this situation.

I'm a woman in tech in Canada, I think this dress is ok. Red is definitely on the end of the spectrum in terms of the dresses I have seen. Most women dress in either black, gray, blue or something pattern of those colors. But I have seen red. As long as you act professional, it'll be ok. But also, make sure it's not a casual dress code - I have been to a ...

Do you think it is professional/appropriate to wear red? and in general this dress? I don't see any reason why not to wear that dress. Judging by the picture, it doesn't seem too "provocative" or "showing too much skin", so even though I am male and don't know much about fashion, I think this dress is OK. As a rule of thumb, even though this is outside ...

The other answers already said to talk to your coworkers. If you have female colleagues around your age you can ask them what they usually wear to such events to get some insights. Some of my colleagues and I have a private groupchat where we send each other photos of different clothing options before special company events. Depending on your colleagues and ...

Ask your boss - your impression on him is important for your well being in the company. Ask your colleagues - maybe they have some "plans" they did not share with you yet. Also, they might have the experience of the previous years. Ask the organizers for advice: they might have decided for a dress code. At the end, analyze the info and make a decision ...

Office culture varies widely enough that there's no such thing as a universal answer you can get from the internet. To get a good answer to this sort of question, you really need to talk to a coworker or two about what they normally wear and how formal the event is.
