Telecommuters Not Following Dress Code

By Ralf the Dog

San Diego, CA - A recent study by California State University found that out of 15,000 employees who work from home, only three follow company dress code.  The study estimates that failure to follow a company dress code while at home costs employers over $15 billion every year.

James Bottlefisher, an assistant department head of strategic accounting, second class at IBM, was quoted as saying, "It's bad enough when they don't wear a coat and tie to bed at night, however it seems that our employees are dressing casually even during work hours."

Many companies have found it difficult to determine what employees are wearing at home. Bottlefisher continued, "We suspect that a number of our telecommuters are wearing blue jeans and tee shirts.  There is even a rumor that some of our workers are not wearing anything at all."

There is a congressional study planned to determine whether it should be appropriate to require telecommuters to place webcams throughout their homes to allow employers to monitor their dressing and grooming habits.

Yuri Sandusky who works for Oracle from his home office said, "They can put cameras all around my house if they wish, but I highly doubt anyone monitoring could handle the sight of my disgusting naked body prancing about while I'm talking to clients.   The clients don't mind why should my employer?  I feel more empowered while naked."

Of the three participants of the CSU study who were found to be in compliance with dress codes, one man was found to have died after coming home from church, one woman was found to be an extreme nerd, while the last man turned out to be an error. He was not in compliance, he was in a dress.
