No jeans, sneakers, open-toed sandals, your hair must be a “natural color”…

Politico, obtained the entire “International Business Times Employee Handbook” for Newsweek magazine. Their new owners, IBT Media stating their staffers are required to follow a dress code that prohibits a lot. Here’s a sample:

“Midriffs are to be covered. Denim jeans, sweat suits, low-rise pants, sneakers, sandals, flip-flops, halter tops, camisoles, baseball caps, sweat suits, T-shirts, tank tops, micro mini-skirts, shorts or anything else that is deemed unprofessional or excessively distracting are inappropriate business attire and should not be worn to work. Hair should be clean, combed and neatly trimmed or arranged.

Shaggy, messy, and neglected hair is not permissible regardless of length. Also, well-groomed, business style hair of natural color is required. Open-toe sandals are not permitted. Body piercing (other than earrings) should not be visible. Inappropriately dressed employees will be asked to return home to change into suitable clothing. Tattoos and body piercings (other than earrings) must be covered.”

What do you think too strict?
