    Default Workwear

    Apologies if something like this has been posted before

    Can a company stop you wearing their logo as a contractor if they have previously provided you with branded workwear? The same workwear is also available to buy online so for what it’s worth you could be wearing your own clothes that jus happen to have their logo on.

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    Many thanks

    Yes they can. Or, to put it another way, if you don't comply with their request, they can easily terminate the contract. Your choice.
    Hmm. I'm beginning to suspect that you need to find all the packing the computer came in...

    Do you really want to look the same as permanent employees?

    These kinds of situation are complex and it's difficult to advise without understanding more detail - you've left it very vague. But as a warning tale, the old man was doing a desktop support gig at Chanel a few years ago. After two weeks he turned up wearing Chanel No. 5 and a smile. It turned legal very fast.

    Their logo is quite possibly trademarked, and almost certainly copyrighted.
    So yes they can stop you.

    Strange, normally the services he provides are illegal in most countries!

    For a few quid buy your own. For a few extra quid get your companies logo on it.

    Put your logo on a suit and you can put it through the company books.
