Asking Employee to Cut Fingernails

Can I ask a female employee to cut her fingernails when I observe they are affecting her typing abilities?

Employers are able to adopt dress code policies and address such issues at their discretion. However, carefully consider your reasoning and your approach before doing so.

You say the employee’s fingernails are affecting her typing abilities. Is typing one of her primary job duties that encompasses a significant amount of her workday? Is she making one or two mistakes or is she taking an extra-long time to type a basic memo. Basically, make sure there is a valid, business-related issue.

Meet with the employee discuss your concerns. State specific examples (i.e. frequent typing mistakes, slower typing) and how this affects her job (i.e. additional work time spent, low productivity). Hear what she has to say. She may offer to cut her nails without you having to even mention it. If not, state your concern about the length of her nails possibly causing these issues. Again, hear what she has to say. If she insists it’s not her nails then ask her to come up with ways to resolve the issues.

Once the employee is aware that you’ve noticed some issues, hopefully she will take the appropriate steps to remedy the situation.

HTH!

Laying Off Employees in Wisconsin

I have bought one business this week in Wisconsin. I have two regular employees & three part-time employees from previous owner. The business is slow & I want to discontinue with these regular employees. What are the provisions regarding how much time until I can lay off these two regular employees?

Neither federal nor Wisconsin layoff laws apply to the layoff of 2 employees. Under these laws, employers must give employees advance notice of at least 60 days before implementing a mass layoff or plant closing. There is no specified time frame until employees can be let go after the purchase of a company.

It’s best practice to give the employees at least 2 weeks notice, if possible a full month. When laying employees off it’s best to do so as amicably as possible. Providing notice allows them time to plan ahead.
