Workwear is clothing worn by employees to protect their own clothing in the course of the work to be performed. In the absence of legal regulation, certain items of clothing are not prescribed as work clothing. Rather, each individual worker decides for himself whether he wants to wear certain items of clothing at work.
The costs of purchasing and cleaning workwear in the strict sense are covered by the employee. However, if the employer has agreed to meet the costs on the basis of a corresponding agreement in the employment contract, the employer is obliged to pay for the work clothes.
In a broader sense, workwear also includes professional clothing, official clothing and protective clothing. However, personal protective equipment does not belong to workwear.
What material are the clothes made of?
Our T-shirts, polos and sweatshirts are made of polyester and/or cotton.
Cotton is one of the most versatile materials in the textile industry. Cotton is known for its light and soft material, which also convinces with its durability and is easy to care for. At the same time, cotton is abrasion-resistant and insensitive to acids. The cotton fibre releases excess heat well to the outside, it does not have an insulating effect and is permeable to air. Cotton is also suitable for allergy sufferers because it is skin-friendly and thus has a low allergy potential. Cotton is the most absorbent. The fabric is able to store a lot of liquid without feeling wet. Translated with www.DeepL.com/Translator (free version)
