‘For Every Minute You’re Late, You’ll Have To Work 10 Mins Extra’ Office Rule Enrages Desis

Working long hours, having no time for your friends and family, and rarely taking a day off is so normalized in our country that people hardly realize we need to have a work-life balance. The mind and the body need rest, they need a break and stressing them to the extent that your sleep cycle and personal lives go for a toss affects your mental health negatively.

But there are companies which disregard this and keep on coming up with rules and clauses which put additional pressure on employees. Having said that, one company started this new office rule – if you are 1 minute late for work, you have to work 10 minutes extra after office hours.

“For example, if you arrive at 10.02, you will have to stay an extra 20 minutes until 6.20 pm,” the notice read. While it cannot be said which particular company started this new office rule, I think we all can agree that this is uncalled for. What if an employee has a genuine reason to be late?
