A Bit Of A Personal Question,

when at work how many times during your shift do you go to the bathroom?

once a shift? that's fine, but any more than that and be prepared to be fined! Anpu Electric Science and Technology, a Chinese corporation based in Dongguan, Guangdong province, admitted to enforcing a bizarre once-a-day toilet break policy and fining employees who break it with 20 yuan (£2.26) according to notices issued by the company and leaked on social media by disgruntled employees, at least seven staff members were penalized on December 20 and 21. The rule has sparked outrage online, but company officials explained management’s decision to create the bizarre rule by saying that many employees were lazy and used toilet breaks to smoke and avoid their duties, “We are helpless. The fact is that the workers are lazy at work,” a company manager, surnamed Cao, told Guangdong TV. “The management talked with those workers many times, but didn’t achieve a positive result yet, they don't actually use the bathroom,' the supervisor told the Chinese video news outlet Pear. 'They would use going to the bathroom as an excuse to smoke cigarettes and play on their phones.', the Dongguan Human Resources and Social Security Bureau confirmed the incident to reporters, adding that they had investigated the matter, the authorities had ordered the company to remove the rule and return the money to the employees, an official told The Beijing News, phew! that's a relief.
