Employers are asking female employees to dress ‘sexier’ and wear make-up during video meetings, research has found.

Contrary to expectations that remote working could reduce the number of reported incidents of sexist behaviour, research from law firm Slater and Gordon suggested sexism has found “new and insidious ways to thrive online” since the start of the outbreak.

In a poll of 2,000 office-based staff working from home during the pandemic, 35 per cent of women reported experiencing at least one sexist demand from their employer since lockdown started in March, with the most common offence being inappropriate comments about the way they dressed for video meetings.
