DA: Personal Appearance Guidelines Update

On December 14, 2023, UPE met with the DA Assistant Director and Labor Relations regarding the above policy.

UPE compared the existing dress code policy to the proposed updated policy. The proposed changes are minimal and less restrictive. UPE asked additional clarifying questions to protect our members. The main changes are as follows:

  • Tattoos no longer need to be covered as long as they meet the policy guidelines.

  • Head, face, hand, and neck tattoos remain prohibited unless they are natural-looking cosmetic enhancements such as eyebrows, lips, and eyeliner.

  • Athletic wear, including yoga pants, are not permitted; leggings are acceptable.

  • See-through tops are only permissible if worn over another article of permitted attire.

Please be sure to review the policy regarding dress code changes and the details on displaying tattoos to ensure that you are in compliance with the updated policy.

Thank you to the participants for your advocacy,

Sylvia Garcia and Krishneil Prasad
