Workwear is clothing worn by employees to protect their own clothing in the context of the work to be performed. Workwear is not prescribed by law.
Each worker decides for himself whether he wears certain workwear at work.
Workwear also includes professional clothing, official clothing and protective clothing.
Many companies have introduced workwear to underline the recognition value of the company. The aim is to create a "we" feeling among the employees with the workwear. At the same time, employees of the company should also be recognised externally. In this context, workwear is mostly practical and robust. The special clothing is provided by the employer - if it is prescribed - for the duration of the employment relationship.
Who covers the cost of workwear?
An interesting question for employees is how the costs for workwear are covered. Normally there is an agreement between the employer and the employee.
