In one of the most insane concepts yet, Safeguard Properties (SGP) has launched a Dress Code Requirement. I am at a loss so I am just going to print it word for word. The only think I can think of is that SGP wants to make sure that Contractors become employees. They want to make damn sure that ONLY your Company is on the line. Your Name, Your Business Cards, Your Liability. Not that the Family Business, as Amir Jaffa likes to call it, gives two shits, but who funds this?
I noticed right away that the Klein Dynasty does not support Orthodox Religion here. Pants are not allowed to be worn by any Orthodox Jewish, Christian or Islamic Communities. That might be an issue. Ah, perhaps not. Get the proper halachic ruling and it’s all good. I always did wonder how work could be demanded by one Orthodox segment upon another during the Sabbath so go figure.
Typical hypocrisy. Who the hell are these folks to force Employee Regulations? No, this smells of religious dogma to me. I call it like I see it. I really, REALLY love the communications segment. Does that have to be in ENGLISH?! No sweatshirts, huh? Yeah, sports shirts in ten BELOW ZERO! Safeguard Properties paying the cleaning bill on our trucks and trailers? And what is extreme? If I have an anti Israel T Shirt is that extreme? Make NO MISTAKE I am not supportive of the BILLIONS and BILLIONS of dollars funneled in Foreign Aid when our own people are starving in the streets here! No, you will not take my Soul.
THIS IS THE SLIPPERY SLOPE I PREDICTED! CONTRACTORS LAID DOWN AND NOW THEY ARE GOING TO GET SCREWED! STARTED WITH PHONE APPS, THEN BACKGROUND CHECKS, NOW CLOTHING AND VEHICLES. NEXT THING THEY WILL WANT IS SWEARING AN OATH TO THEM.
To make sure we are all on the same page, we are going to assist SGP in pointing out those not in compliance and we have PLENTY here in East Tennessee. Just stepping up to the plate there Rob. I mean when I went over the photos of Robert Klein in the Safeguard Properties Facebook Group he struck me as a guy off the meds for a bit; I am not a doctor, but would LOVE to play one on TV. What I am driving at is the hat and beard were all in disarray not to mention his entire look. The confused look while on the porch really stuck out. So, I guess I am at a loss.
We will follow up on this tonight; I just wanted to get it out immediately!

Memo 1446: Professionalism While Representing Safeguard Properties
NEW REQUIREMENT: Effective September 15, individuals must wear identification badges showing both the individual’s name and your company’s name or a shirt or uniform displaying your company’s name. Company logo t-shirts are acceptable for this requirement. Individuals should not display Safeguard’s name. Each individual should have a company business card to provide neighbors, code enforcement officers, brokers, or police officers upon request. (Business Card and Badge Examples ) This new requirement is just one aspect of Safeguard’s goal for all vendors to present a professional and reassuring image in the communities we serve.
In many communities, neighbors vigilantly watch vacant properties. Remember, you are representing Safeguard and our clients as well. Maintaining quality in the field is a top priority, and quality is reflected in the task performed in the field as well as in the way that task is conducted. All crews should behave professionally, as detailed below. Crews should also dress in appropriate attire, as detailed below. Vehicles should be clean and well-maintained.
- Any crew or individual doing any sort of work on a property, including quality control, must have a copy of the work order available.
- Communication with neighbors, occupants, law enforcement personnel, brokers, or code enforcement officers must always be professional and polite. If you ever have questions on how to communicate with a particular party, feel free to contact your regional coordinator for assistance.
- Crews should communicate in a moderate tone. Radio and other audio systems should not be heard outside the vehicle and loud music should not be played inside the property.
- Any person doing work on Safeguard’s behalf must be of legal working age. Children and pets or other animals are not permitted on the property at any time.
- No smoking inside any property, even if there are already smoke odors inside.
- No use of pools or shower facilities at any property is ever acceptable.
Attire must look professional. Safeguard strongly recommends vendors use vendor company-branded attire. Examples of recommended acceptable and unacceptable attire are as follows:
