Workplace policy: What strange things have been banned?

The municipal government of Isesaki in central Japan has banned its male employees from growing beards.

Yahoo News reports that there were two specific reasons for the ban. City officals cited a need for public servants to maintain decorum. Also, there were complaints from citizens who found beards and stubble unpleasant.

The facial hair policy is believed to be the first of its kind in Japan.
