hey, we have a Raw room(where all the uncooked meat is kept before its cooked) to go in there we have to wear a white coat, we'r suppose to have a clean one every single day..my question is that we've been asked to have that cleaned as according to Morrisons it forms part of the uniform although its never mentioned as part of the uniform in any documents. So just wanted to know if i can refuse to get it washed (as i've been doin so far but im in a bit of trouble now)

It gets really mucky and the smell of the raw chicken n pork is not good so u have to clean it separate which means just waste of electric and my time....any thoughts?
#11
Does the white coat form part of YOUR uniform, or is it a white coat that waits outside the RAW room for whoever goes in there next? If it forms part of your uniform, I think you'd be on thin ice trying to claim it does not. What does everyone else do? I would suggest you carry on and wash it every day as advised, or you can be disciplined for refusing to comply with their hygeine regulations. Feel free to put your grievance in regarding the additional expense and inconvenience of washing it every day, but I imagine it's just going to be one of those things. Worse things happen at sea, and all that.

I don't think they'd object if you brought your own pen...

You can have your tax code changed to reflect the fact that you wash your work uniform, it's not a lot but would probably pay for the electric you use to wash it each day. Ring the tax man or speak to your HR departnment.

I totally didn't know that. Hubby has always had to wash his own uniform, or give it to me to wash anyway. Can you just ring the tax man, or do you have to give some kind of evidence?

According to mangers it does form part of the uniform but i have not seen it mentioned in any documents etc..few months ago these were washed in Morrisons own laundrette and ive found out a lot of other stores have them washed by an out side company, so its only my store who are doing this and only recently..

Your work has to confirm it, I filled in a form that my work gave to me, they sent it off and next month my code had changed. It goes back 3-5yrs as well so you get a rebate or your tax code is adjusted even further to allow for the rebate.

Then raise your grievance in writing, to your local manager. He'll have to respond. Just explain your problem, and highlight other stores aren't doing it this way. Mention you feel it's unhygienic to wash it with other clothes, so are having to launder it separately. Ask for the reason it's been changed lately, as it's not how it used to be, and see what happens. Good luck!

Whoopee! Googling it now, maybe it's a standard form...

I think it's a bit odd really. I mean, office staff don't get money back for buying their own clothes - he gets clothes provided, and now we're going to pester them for a few more pence to wash them!!

It doesn't sound right, but take it to a laundrette and clean it there. Keep the receipts (if they issue them) then put in a claim to your HR department saying this is paid for at other stores, why am I being treated differently then quit. Take them to court for constructive dismissal :thumbsup:

Tax relief
http://www.hmrc.gov.uk/incometax/relief-tools.htm

"What about uniforms

You can get tax relief on the cost of a uniform if:

* it's a recognisable uniform that shows you've got a certain sort of job - like a nurse or police uniform
* your employer requires you to wear it while you're working
* you've got to pay for it yourself

The tax relief also covers the cost of cleaning, repairing or replacing the uniform. You might also be entitled to tax relief for the cost of cleaning a uniform that your employer provides if you've got to pay for this yourself."

Thanks I might just do that.

The 'washing uniform at home tax relief' was discussed on this very forum a while back

Protective clothing and uniforms provided by the employer, for example, overalls and protective helmets or shoes, are not liable to tax. Further details are available on the HMRC website at [url]www.hmrc.gov.uk[/url].
Normal clothing provided by the employer is taxable, except for employees in lower-paid employment, on the full cost to the employer of providing the clothes, less any part reimbursed by the employee.

Employee refuses to wear particular clothing or uniform
Some employers may require employees to meet certain requirements with regard to their appearance, for example, by wearing a uniform, not wearing jewellery, having hair of a certain length, wearing trousers or skirts.
Whether an employer can fairly dismiss an employee for failing to meet these requirements will depend on the circumstances of the case and whether it is reasonable to dismiss the employee. If there is a clause in the contract requiring the employee to dress in a certain way, a dismissal for refusing to comply is likely to be fair. If there is no contractual requirement to dress in a certain way, an employer can only dismiss an employee if dismissal is a reasonable response in the circumstances. In either case, the employer would be expected to warn the employee of the likely consequences of her/his action, and explore other options short of dismissal such as providing a uniform.
If the employee thinks that s/he is being asked to dress in a certain way because of her/his sex and that an employee of the opposite sex would not have similar requirements imposed, then s/he may be able to claim sex discrimination. If an employee is asked to wear certain clothes, or is not allowed to wear certain clothes, such as women employees not being allowed to wear trousers or male employees not being allowed to have beards/wear turbans, this may well result in discrimination.
