New Rest Room Use Policy

TO: ALL EMPLOYEES
FROM: HUMAN RESOURCES
DATE: SEPTEMBER 7, 1998
RE: REST ROOM USE POLICY

In the past, employees were permitted to make trips to the rest room under informal guidelines. Effective at the beginning of next month, a rest room trip policy will be established to provide a more consistent method of accounting for each employee rest room time and insuring equal treatment to all employees.

Under the policy, a “rest room trip bank” will be established for each employee. The first day of each month, employees will be given twenty (20) rest room credits. these credits may be accumulated.

Within two weeks, the entrance door to all rest rooms will be equipped with personal identification stations and computer linked voice print recognition devices. Before the end of the month, each employee must provide two copies of voice prints, one normal and one under stress, to the Human Resources Department. The voice print recognition stations will be operational but not restrictive for the first month. Employees should aquaint themselves with the station during this period.

If the employees rest room trip bank balance reaches zero, the doors to the rest rooms will not unlock for that employee’s voice until the first of the next month. In addition, all rest rooms stalls are being equipped with timed paper roll retractors. If the stall is occupied for more than three minutes, an alarm will sound. Thirty seconds after the alarm sounds the roll of paper will retract into the wall, the toilet will flush and the stall door will open. If the stall remains occupied, your picture will automaticallybe taken.

The picture will then be posted on the bulletin board. Anyone’s picture showing up three times will be immediately terminated. If you have any questions about this policy please contact your supervisor. They have all received advanced instructions.

Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.
