職場上,有時間觀念很重要,不少企業會設置一些出勤獎罰制度,以打擊員工的遲到行為。近日就有網民於討論區發文,直斥無良「蛇頭」公司竟實行「遲到連坐法」,表示若一個人遲到,就全員一齊扣人工,令其大感不滿,遂請教網民:「去報勞工處會唔會受理?」  樓主表示自己本想趁大學Sem break炒散賺下零用錢,怎料卻遇上無良「蛇頭」公司,並逐一列出其苛刻無理的規矩──起初「蛇頭」公司於炒散工WhatsApp群組講明:「即日請假係需要倒扣一日人工(即係冇咗嗰日嘅人工之外要再倒貼多一日嘅薪金,需要賠錢)」,而且「遲到十分鐘就會扣一個鐘嘅人工」;幾日後再行使「遲到連坐法」,稱「一個員工遲到就全部員工都會扣人工」,最後樓主補充:「出糧方面,一月嘅薪金會喺二月廿五號先收到」,他質疑該公司拖糧,但由於自己並沒簽約,所以不肯定,希望有網民可以解答他的問題。  帖文引起一眾網民熱議:  「見到一大堆字叫人唔好遲到會點點點就知係垃圾公司」  「提早10分鐘佢係咪俾番一個鐘人工我」  「我建議識玩就真係搵人遲到比佢扣,之後收集證據勞工處見」  「大把炒散啦,點解要返佢」  「每日返最後一個鐘,都係扣半日人工,好抵」  「發生咩事,點解咁既工都有人做」 ...
打工仔攞AL出門旅行,無非想完全放低工作,盡情享受沒有老細、同事、個客喺左近的Me Time,奈何十個老細幾乎有九個都會在員工放假期間,發訊息和你傾公事,於是乎,「放假老細仍WhatsApp你,該點算好?」一直是網上熱議話題,不少身受其苦的網民因而出謀獻計,讓放大假都照樣收到老細短訊的同路人,盡量可休假0打擾,安心放AL。  6成以上打工仔,放假時仍收到上司短訊  較早前有人資顧問機構向2千名打工仔進行調查訪問,結果發現超過6成人曾在放假時,接到上司、同事訊息,問及一些其實並無迫切性的公事,例如,「某個十劃未有一撇的計劃項目進展如何?」、「會不會出席Team Building活動或某某會議?」諸如此類的問題。  這種情況,的確會令原本帶著期待去放假的員工,因無法徹底從工作模式,切換至休假狀態,而感到非常無癮。於是,不少感同身受的打工仔,紛紛在網上獻計,希望欠缺「離線權」(Right To Disconnect)法例保障的香港上班族,可自求多福,盡量擺脫放假仍要面對公事之無奈。  ▪ 放假前指定動作──寫自動回覆E-mail...
