Ours the women wear cocktail dresses (not too skimpy) and the men wear suits! Just ask anyone at your office though, they should be happy to help

You should ask people at your office what do they usually wear, if there is any dress code Our office is pretty casual, so no fancy outfits.

What are some easy to make, low stress holiday meals for a school holiday staff party? I was "volunteered" by our principal to set it up this year (🙄). I'm making decorated sugar cookies but kind of drawing a blank when it comes to savory dishes. Bonus points if you have any adult holiday themed games or fun drinks to suggest! It's off school property and there will be a bar (thank god), for context.

Monday Morning rumination: unsolicited advise is criticism.

Much to reflect on with this topic. Last week I was told in a 1:1 with a new contact that I was “too direct”. After some time chewing on the conversation I was struggling to place the emotions I was feeling. Turns out I was feeling guilty and shame for being me, for taking up space. Lesson of the week: unsolicited advice is a criticism of you, a micro aggression of who you are, and being “too much”. What would you do??

Questions:
1. what do you do if your job or your interviewers ask you to take on responsibilities outside of what you want to develop your career in?

2. How do you handle double standard at work?
Example: Another designer in the same position refused to do certain work and you have to pick it up, and your supervisor plays favoritism, leaves you high and dry, and brushes you off for not being able to figure it out yourself?

We've had a few instances of possible COVID sick employees that returned with negative test results. Upper management is basically asking if there is something they can do to help control what employees are doing in their off time (ie. going to bars or other places with a lot of people). They even went as far as to mention something about a wedding that 3 of the employees are in together. Can an employer have ANY control over an employee's time off? It seems crazy to think that they think they can.

Hello,

Please advise on how to kindly get an employee to convert to scrubs or changing clothes?

Situation: I work at a small healthcare Staffing agency. One of our employees has been wearing the same clothes since the day she started for over a month now. She is well groomed and clean. The management at our client site felt bad that many people have taken notice to this unusual "self made uniform" if you will. We already emailed the employee asking to wear scrubs to... (see comment for rest)

⚠️Toxicity Alert ⚠️

My previous manager would track us by hours daily, made a fuss everytime anything stretched and guilt us for that and the unplanned leave too unless it was COVID. Hinted him a lot of time, this is problematic but apparently he considered it "standard practice for agile".

Now 8/10 teammates have switched within < 1 year of project start (6-7 months with him) which tbh had good work in our opinion and even team was fun to work with even though none of us ever met in person.

Fashion Q: what kinds of pants do you guys wear day-to-day? I know skinny jeans are considered “out,” but super baggy mom jeans are not flattering on my small frame. I wear leggings when I’m WFH, but I want to look slightly more put-together/fashionable outside my home
