No-Shave November Can Cause Friction at Work


Rosemary Gousman was quoted on New Jersey 101.5 on November 13, 2014. The article “No-Shave November Can Cause Friction at Work” examined how the cancer awareness stunt known as “No-Shave November” could cause a hairy situation at work for employees and employers.

Rosemary said companies typically have their guidelines for appearance within the employee handbook or the rules and regulations a new worker receives on the first day.

If those rules demand a “clean-shaven” employee, Rosemary said, a boss can easily put an early end to No-Shave November.

“The employer has the right to make its rules and decide what image it wants to portray to the public,” she said.

The strike on shaving is for a good cause, however, and there are many companies that are willing to bend the rules in the name of cancer and camaraderie.

“It’s kind of a bonding thing, a charitable thing; they’re all getting together,” Rosemary said.
