Zachary board bans employee flip-flops

ZACHARY (AP) — Employees of the Zachary Community School District will not be allowed to wear rubber clogs or flip-flops on the job beginning in the 2013-14 school year.

The Advocate reported the school board voted unanimously Thursday to approve changes to the employee dress code, which also included a new requirement that tattoos be covered.

During a work session before the meeting, Superintendent Scott Devillier said that the modifications to the code were made in response to some employees becoming lax in their professional appearance and also because of possible workers compensation claims.
