Still think that the tories making it more difficult for employees to take their employer to an employment tribunal is a good thing? Read this …
A Welsh call centre company, Solution Marketing, has been called out by an MP for fining an employee £50 for having multiple loo breaks.
The business which specialises in selling telecommunication and insurance products and services, had logged every time he used the facilities
A source close to the man told The Sun: ‘He asked for an explanation and he was shown a list of times when he had taken toilet breaks that month.
‘It made him angry enough to bring it to his MP.’
Madeleine Moon MP asked the Leader of the House, William Hague, for a discussion on the so-called ‘toilet tax’ in parliament.
Mr Hague responded stating he hoped the issue could be resolved without a Commons debate.
Solution Marketing responded: ‘It is not a Solution Marketing company policy or practice to make payroll deductions for toilet breaks.
‘Ad hoc deductions can occur where call operatives are missing from their desks for excessive periods of time.’
