Hi all, I work in the cannabis industry and part of our facility operates under GMP and among the many rules, one is no jewelry. Recently our distribution department became GMP and now has to adhere to our dress code and we are getting a lot of push back about facial piercings. Staff is arguing that they cannot take out their piercings as they will close up within the day and/or can't be easily removed and furthermore they don't think this is fair as when they were hired, this policy (no jewelry) did not apply to their Dept. I'm looking for any tips and advice you may have. Do we just hold firm and say no jewelry period, do we let them wear blue Band-Aids over their jewelry, do we give them a timeline to comply?
Always appreciate this forum for helping me out!
