Female workers receive grooming “list” at Dorchester Hotel

By December 2, 2016Uncategorized

Senior staff at the Dorchester Hotel have been criticised for sending a list of grooming standards to female applicants requiring them to meet certain standards while working at the hotel. The list prohibits female employees from arriving to work with oily skin, bitten nails or body odour, and suggests that female employees undergo regular manicures and wear full make-up. Sam Smether, Chief Executive of the Fawcett Society, has deemed the list “completely unacceptable” and has urged companies to “concentrate on what enables people to do a good job and what drives productivity.”
