Ask your boss if in exchange for a smoking break (since you don't smoke, but everyone else does) why can't you trade in a smoke break for a pee break and not have to clock out. You probably won't take as many breaks as the smokers.. since they get a break with pay, why shouldn't you?
Rather poor way of putting it. I'm sure your boss didn't make this rule because he knew you were a non-smoker
It's one thing to not allow the employee restroom privileges and completely different to make sure they aren't in there wasting paid time playing Angry Birds. If the boss completely cut them from using the restroom then it would be illegal. I really don't see it as a bad thing other than OP doesn't get to take breaks like the rest.
33, some people have stomach issues where they might be stuck in the bathroom for 30 minutes at a time. It is illegal to count bathroom breaks as an unpaid break, unless the person is pretending to have stomach issues. Then that becomes fraud for stealing company time.
I agree with you completely #45. I have stomach issues for my medical and this is something that happens to me. It is understandable for people to assume fakers wanting extra time shaved off from their work and get paid for it... But those people ruin it for the rest of us that don't fake to get out of work. Its incredibly frustrating to the boss not knowing who to believe and just as frustrating for those that don't fake it.
So those that smoke can use their smoking break to quickly pop to the loo as well? That sucks OP. Maybe start pretending to go out for a cigarette!
Have your bladder removed and get a thrid lung inserted, to you can stop peeing and start smoking. I'm sure NHS will pay for you to get such work-related surgery!
