2019 Casual Dress Summer Fridays

NYIT's dress code is business wear and NYIT employees are expected to dress appropriately and in good taste at all times. However, beginning May 31, 2019, NYIT will be instituting Casual Dress Summer Fridays for the remainder of the summer.

In accordance with the NYIT Employee Handbook, employees should always project a professional image that is clean and neat. Dress guidelines for individual departments will vary based upon your position and work activities. If special meetings or events are scheduled, customary business wear would still be required. Professional discretion should dictate your attire, and personal appearance at all times.

Guide for acceptable casual dress summer Fridays:

  • Shirts: All shirts with collars, business casual crewneck or V-neck shirts, blouses, golf, and polo shirts. NYIT logo T-shirts or polo shirts are permitted. Inappropriate attire includes: shirts with inappropriate slogans, tank tops, muscle shirts, and crop tops.
  • Pants: Casual slacks/trousers, ankle-length pants/capris, jeans without holes, frays, etc., are acceptable. Inappropriate attire includes: shorts, pants that are ripped or frayed, pants worn well below the waist.
  • Skirts and Dresses: Most are acceptable. Inappropriate attire includes: mini-skirts, swimwear cover-ups, dresses with exposed tank tops or spaghetti straps.
  • Footwear: Casual slip-on or tie shoes, dress sandals, and clean athletic shoes are permitted. Inappropriate attire includes: flip-flops, slippers, and floppy sandals.

As a reminder, it is never appropriate to wear to the workplace stained, wrinkled, frayed, or revealing clothing or clothing with derogatory/vulgar/offensive lettering or logos. Supervisors are responsible for ensuring that their employees are appropriately dressed and NYIT reserves the right to send home individuals who do not adhere to the casual Friday dress code guidelines.

Casual Dress Summer Fridays are in effect beginning Friday, May 31, 2019 and will end on Friday, August 30, 2019.
