Feedback at 5:00: Bathroom Monitoring at Work

Many companies monitor what their workers do, trying to stop them from wasting valuable time on the job.

But one company is taking it to a new level.

Employees at Water Saver in Chicago have to use swipe cards to get into the bathroom, and then again in the stall.

The system records how often they go, and how long they stay.

Some workers have been disciplined for “excessive use.”

The company pays workers $1 a day if they don’t use the bathroom outside of their break-times.

What do you think of the policy?
