Dressing for success: Dress codes should follow human rights guidelines
Wade Poziomka discusses a case he's taken on, that's headed for mediation, regarding dress code at a Hooters franchise in Ontario.

Dress codes are often part of a job, but when do they violate employee human rights? Wade Poziomka, human rights lawyer with Ross & McBride LLP, and Priya Sarin, partner at Whitten & Lublin Employment Lawyers, discuss this topic through the lens of Poziomka's client's current dispute with a popular American restaurant chain.
