    Hi jlk,
    It would be helpful if you have your titles give a bit more information about what you are posting about.

    All employees are required to adhering dress code.

    What is A dress code? Is it different from uniform?
    No, but it describes what is appropriate to wear to work. For example, no sleeveless shirts, nothing that shoes the midrift, no oped-toed shoes. Some parts of the dress code may be about safety and others about looking professional. Where I work you can wear shorts on Fridays in the summer, but not other days.

    If there is more than one manager there, then use "a manager." If you want to use it as representing the entire class of managers of hardware stores, use "a." (Like "a lion is a fierce creature).

    If you mean a specific person who is the manager of a specific store, then use "the."

    Personally, I would use an article, either "a" or "the" depending on my meaning, and not use the zero article.
