Boss Demands Daily Email Check, Employee Puts It On Time Sheet
It's amazing how quickly stupid tasks become irrelevant the moment it starts costing the company money. The powers that be came down and told this part-timer that they'd have to check their email daily, so naturally, for this employee, it seemed like that should count on company time.
This thread was posted to Reddit's r/MaliciousCompliance subreddit by u/OtherLtDan, who opened up about how they made sure to follow company rules while never doing any unpaid work. In this day and age, we understand the importance of work-life balance, and when you are asked to work during the hours when you are supposed to be offline, that time should be accounted for in your paycheck! Otherwise, it's against labor laws and, to put it simply, it's just not fair to any employee. This one goes out to folks like the original poster, who made sure to properly advocate for themselves!
