AUTHORITY: KRS 12.040, 12.080, 174.080


FUNCTION, AND CONFORMITY: Because the toll collectors and the maintenance

personnel on the Commonwealth turnpikes and toll roads are in positions of

constant public attention and represent the Commonwealth to much of the

traveling public, the Transportation Cabinet provides uniforms for their use. This

administrative regulation is adopted to specify the responsibilities of the

employees in maintaining their uniforms and personal appearance so that they

are a credit to the Commonwealth.


      Section 1. Care

and Maintenance of Uniforms. (1) The Transportation Cabinet is responsible for

providing, at its expense, an ample supply of uniforms to and instructing toll

collectors and toll facilities maintenance personnel in the proper wearing and

use of the uniforms issued to said personnel. The cabinet is responsible for

making necessary initial alterations to the uniforms.

      (2) A uniform

must be worn as issued while the employee is on duty. The employee must present

a neat and clean appearance.

      (3) The employee

is responsible for uniform cleaning, pressing and minor repair such as button

replacement. The employee is also responsible for any subsequent alterations

which have been approved by the Transportation Cabinet.

      (4) The employee

must not wear the uniform in nonduty activities other than travel to and from the

employee's work station.

      (5) An employee

may exchange a nonfitting uniform which is still in good condition for another

uniform that fits properly.

      (6) An employee

may without prejudice exchange a uniform that is not capable of conforming to

the standards required by this administrative regulation.


      Section 2.

Damaged or Severely Altered Uniforms. (1) The employee must reimburse the

cabinet for uniforms that have been damaged through abuse, neglect,

unauthorized alterations or that have been lost or otherwise have been rendered

unsuitable for reissue prior to the end of the expected three (3) year life of

the uniform. The amount charged for the uniform will be prorated based on its

purchase price and the portion of the three (3) years durability expectancy it

has been in service.


      Section 3.

Termination of Employee. In the event an employee resigns or otherwise

terminates his employment with the Division of Toll Facilities, the employee

shall return all uniforms issued to the employee during the preceding three (3)

years. If any uniform is not returned or is damaged or altered in an

unauthorized manner, the employee shall be responsible for such damage or loss

sustained by the cabinet. Payment will be based on the age of the uniform,

original purchase price and condition of the returned uniform.


      Section 4.

Personal Appearance and Hygiene of Employees. (1) At work, employees must

present a clean, well-groomed appearance. Men's hair must be clean, neatly

trimmed and cut so that it will not cover the ears or any portion thereof and

so that it will not touch the collar of the uniform dress shirt. Sideburns must

not extend below the lowest part of the opening of the ear. "Afro"

hair styles must not be longer than two (2) inches from the scalp.

      (2) Beards or

goatees are prohibited. Mustaches must be neatly trimmed and must not extend

below the corner of the mouth or over the top of the lip.
