Preventing people problems – “Loo Breaks”

Christmas Party

Question:

Can I deduct time from my staff for the time they spend taking loo breaks?

Answer:

A factory did this recently and it resulted in a tribunal claim for unlawful deduction from wages and sex discrimination from a pregnant worker who may need to use the loo more often than other colleagues. Naturally every business owner is looking to maximize and manage their staff’s working time however this probably isn’t the best idea or particularly motivational for the workforce.
