A boss has been blasted for introducing an extreme office rule that punishes staff for being one minute late.
A poster explaining the draconian rules has gone viral after a disgruntled employee posted it on social media.
He captioned the snap: “Shout out the worst place I ever worked (minimum wage, of course).”
The sign reads: “New office rule: For every minute you are late for work, you will be required to work for 10 minutes after 6 pm.
“For example, if you arrive at 10:02, you will have to stay an extra 20 minutes until 6:20pm. Thanks.”
Thousands of people rushed to the comments to give their two cents on the harsh rule.
One person wrote: “That seems really dumb and highly illegal.”
Another fumed: “I’d tell them to f*** off.”
While a third said: “Do you want to lose employees? Because that’s how you lose employees.”
However, some people agreed with the boss – saying that lateness should be punished.
One person pointed out: “It’s honestly so easy to show up on time though… like. I get to work 10 minutes early.”
And another agreed: “How about being on time? Quit your whining.”
