Barney Vinson's World

29 April 2000

The other day somebody asked me if male employees in a casino can wear moustaches or beards. Most casinos allow male workers to wear moustaches. Beards are usually not permitted. However, one resort on the Las Vegas Strip allows beards under the following conditions (and I am not making this up):

  1. The employee must have had a full beard between August 7 and September 15.
  2. That their supervisor will verify the employee had a full beard between the above dates.
  3. That the employee applies through Human Resources to be exempt from the no beard policy.
  4. That the employees' work does not place them in guest or customer areas 50 percent of their daily work shift.
  5. That the employee agrees to keep his beard well groomed and not more than 1/2 inch in length.
  6. That the employee once approved for a full beard, then at a later date shaves off the beard, will not be permitted to re-grow the beard.
  7. Only full beards are allowed.

Now you know why the only people with beards in Las Vegas are the owners' wives.
