Many companies of the world provide very facilities to their employees. At the same time, there are many companies who take strict action against employees if they break the rules. But the cases of giving such punishments to government employees seem to be exceptions. On the other hand, if a government employee leaves office two minutes before his time, then there is an exception to his salary cut off. But one such case has come up in Japan, where the salary of many employees has been deducted.
The salary of many employees has been deducted when they leave two minutes ahead of time at a government office in Japan. According to Japan Today’s report, Funabashi City Board of Education in Chiba in Chiba Province has disciplined employees by deducting their salaries from office two minutes before the time. According to the report of Sankai News, the employees used to record their departure time at 5.15 pm, while they used to leave the office two minutes before that i.e. at 5.13 pm.
Why did the employees leave early
According to the Board of Education, the employees told that he used to leave two minutes before the office because he had to catch the bus at 5.17 pm. If they could not catch this bus, then they would have to wait for half an hour for the next bus. The 59-year-old female employee of Attendance Management has been accused of helping these employees. She used to record the wrong attendance of these employees. For this, one-tenth of his salary for the next three months will be deducted as fine.
Japanese society places more emphasis on punctuality
Two other employees have been given written warnings, while four others have been given stern warnings. Offices in Japan place a lot of emphasis on punctuality. In such a situation, employees are expected to reach office on time. Significantly, the National Railway of Japan officially apologized for leaving the station a few seconds before the train. In such a situation, it can be estimated how strict Japanese society is regarding punctuality.
