Boss Implements Strict Punctuality Policy, Faces Backlash Instead
In a recent post on Reddit, a construction worker shared an interesting encounter with his former boss. The workers in the company often started work very early, so it wasn't uncommon for them to be a few minutes late occasionally. However, the boss became increasingly frustrated with employees arriving at 6:05 or 6:03, just a few minutes past the 6:00 start time (ironically, he himself was frequently late as well).
In response to this issue, the supervisor proposed deducting 15 minutes from any employee who failed to be present precisely at 6 o'clock. Little did he know that this decision would backfire.

Oh no! It cost OP his job.
Long story short:
Let's see what other Reddit users have to comment on this situation:
Some bosses should stop treating their employees like children and still expect them to act like adults.
Apparently, a lot of Redditors have been in the same situation as OP.
Congrats on the new job, OP!
"See ya tomorrow."
OP could've sued them but he got a better job right after being fired.
That was fair and cool somehow.
A lot of companies have sick policies.
In the end, the boss's rigid punctuality policy resulted in a revolt from the construction workers. Their collective action and determination brought about a change in the workplace, fostering a more understanding and cooperative environment for all. What do you think about this story?
