Company Limits Bathroom Breaks to 6 Minutes a Day For Employees
A Chicago company is disciplining workers for "excessive bathroom use".
Chicago's WaterSaver Faucet company is calling "excessive bathroom use" anything more than 60 minutes in the last 10 business days, which breaks down to 6 minutes a day. The company installed a swipe card system in the bathroom, timing employees' bathroom time.
Steve Kersten, the companies CEO, said 120 hours of production were lost in May because of bathroom visits outside of allotted break times.To make up for lost time. Chicago's WaterSaver Faucet company is offering $20 gift cards to employees who don't use the bathroom at all during work time. Do you think this is an invasion of privacy?
