US Bakery divides opinion with staff bathroom rules

A US bakery has divided opinion and alienated employees with its staff bathroom rules, which it claims have been misinterpreted.

Reddit users were left in disbelief at the set of rules stuck on the door of the bakery’s production kitchen, while the original poster claimed his pal who worked there had handed in their notice in retaliation.

The shocking poster read: “Always clock out when passing this door.

“Including: bathroom breaks, 10-minute shift breaks, lunch breaks, questions regarding personal requests.”

The note continued: “Questions regarding production should not require leaving the production area, please see floor manager on duty.

“Paid break times will be added to your paycheck (sic) in accordance with hours worked.”

Users were appalled by the demands, with one user writing: “If you want to buy my body for 8 hours, you will pay for its needs, too.”

Vegan bakery Red Plate Foods then eventually owned up to it being their company after facing backlash online.

Boss Becca apologised to her employees and explained the store was “trying to track a new door – not the activities that happened beyond the door”.

She said the policies were never implemented after “realising the harm the changes caused and our mistake of not involving employees in discussion”, and also insisted bathroom breaks were never docked from employees’ pay packets.
