In the past employees were permitted to make trips to the restroom under the information guidelines.
Effective immediately, a Restroom Trip Policy (RTP) will be established to provide a consistent method of accounting for each employee's restroom time.
Under this policy, a "Restroom Trip Bank" will be established for each employee.
The first day of each month, employees will be given a Restroom Trip Credit of 20. Restroom Trip Credits can be accumulated from month to month.
Within two weeks, the entrances to all restrooms will be equipped with personnel identification stations and computer linked voice recognition devices. Before May 15, each employee must provide two copies of voice prints (one normal and one under stress) to Management. The voice print recognition will be in operation, but not connected to restrooms until the end of the month. Employees should acquaint themselves with these stations during that period.
If an employee's Restroom Trip Bank balance reaches zero, the doors to the restroom will not unlock for that employee's voice until the first of the month.
In addition, if any restroom stalls are occupied for more than three minutes, an alarm will sound. Thirty seconds after the alarm sounds, the roll of paper will retract, the toilet will flush, and the stall door will open. If the stall remains occupied, your picture will be taken.
The picture will then be posted on the wall in the main office. This is being done to eliminate dilly-dallying in the restrooms. Anyone whose picture shows up three times will immediately be terminated.
If you have any questions about the RTP, please ask your supervisor.
