CIT Casual Dress Code

It is our responsibility to present a professional image to our customers, potential employees, co-workers and the public at all times.

Clothes should be neat and clean, and in good condition, without rips or stains.  While we are expected to use our best judgment in selecting clothing appropriate for work, the following is a partial list of inappropriate workplace attire:

  • Leggings
  • Shorts, skorts, cut-offs
  • Hiking boots
  • Flip-flops
  • Shirts with slogans or large emblems
  • Sweatshirts, sweatpants, jogging suits
  • Halter dresses or tops
  • Tank tops, crop tops, tube tops
  • Baseball caps

Wearing jeans is acceptable only on Fridays. The jeans must be neat, clean and free of rips and stains.  Also, it is good to keep in mind that jeans may not be appropriate for certain meetings that may come up on Fridays, so it is important for the employee to use good judgment in regards to this.

Exceptions to the dress guidelines will be made for work conditions which could ruin clothing or where safety issues exist.  Employees that have questions as to what is appropriate in these circumstances should discuss the issue with their immediate supervisor.
