Solicitors met this week at their annual conference in Paris and were told that employers who force staff to wear suits would be liable to legal action under the Human Rights Act. Barristers from leading UK civil litigation chambers Cloisters were warned the suit and other mandatory dress codes violated freedom of expression and right to privacy. In the future, accountants may be better known for bright jumpers than smart suits. But accountants Neville Russell said letting staff to dress down on a Friday was enough. 'Due to the nature of accountancy, suits are the most suitable choice of dress and accountancy firms should retain the right to suggest what our people wear,' the company said. Employee rights experts have warned that once the Act comes into force next October anybody who doesn't want to wear a suit will be able to take their case to an employment tribunal. Professions where the employee comes into contact with the public may be exempt from the Act. But, the changes will come too late for a repeat of June's anti-capitalism riot (above) set for the end of next month, when protestors will pit themselves against 'suits' again.
