Company rule: 6 minutes to potty per day

  • Employees claim they're being tracked
  • Some workers have been written up

A company is accused of tracking how long its employees spend in the bathroom and punishing them if they are in there too long.

Workers at Chicago's WaterSaver Faucet Company say they'll get written up if they spend more than six minutes a day in the restroom, outside of their regularly scheduled breaks.

The rule was implemented because the owner suspects some employees went to the bathroom to use their phones.

Workers have filed a complaint.
