            COUNCIL POLICY ON STAFF UNIFORMS


All indoor staff are encouraged to wear the official uniform of Council, this being the
"Dowd Local Government Corporate Collection".

The Dowd Uniform has been chosen because it meets the following criteria:-

1    Professional Image;
2    Quality of garments;
3    Does not incur a Fringe Benefits Tax liability to Council;
4    Is tax deductible to employees.

The uniform typically consists of the following base wardrobe:-


Council will meet 50% of the cost of each uniform up to a maximum subsidy of
$220.00. On initial order additional items may be purchased by the employee at the
employee's expense.

Refresher items may also be ordered each six months from the Dowd catalogue with
Council meeting 50% of the cost up to a maximum subsidy of $100.00.

Female staff members are permitted to order certain items from the male range.

Staff members are required to adhere to the Australian Tax Office requirements:-

•   It is essential the wardrobe be worn in its entirety and not mixed with your
    personal clothing, ie you must wear a top and bottom as a minimum;

•   The wardrobe must only be worn whilst on official duty, including your travel to
    and from work.

It is not compulsory for staff members to purchase the uniform, but Council will not
provide a subsidy for any other uniform. Those staff members who do purchase the
uniform are required to wear the uniform on every working day.
