  • CA LABOR LAW ~ Uniforms / Work Attire California

    I thought it was not legal to require employee's to wear a uniform or work attire or whatever you would like to call it if the said company requires the employee to purchase thier uniform.

    Is it not supposed to be provided.

    Example: A friend of mine is going into the catering business as a bartender. She is required to purchase a 'tuxedo' to work for the company.

    Shouldn't it be them who is purchasing it and if she loses or damages it then she would be liable for the cost?

    Thanks in advance.

    Uniforms. If an employer requires that an employee wear a uniform, the employer must pay the cost of the uniform. Labor Code Section 2802, Industrial Welfare Commission Orders, Section 9. The term "uniform" includes wearing apparel and accessories of distinctive design and color.
