Abstract

There is significant research on the impact of dress code regulations on employee performance and psychological health for heterosexual individuals. Studies that examine workplace dress code for the LGBTQ community are limited to findings based on court cases that are 16 years old. It is important to understand the current climate at work for LGBTQ women since workplace regulations may impact performance and psychological well-being. Due to the dearth of studies on the topic, this exploratory study asks: Do unwritten or written workplace dress codes impact LGBTQ women’s experiences at work?
