Menstruating staff to wear red bracelets? No way!

You’d forgive workers at a company in Norway for spitting blood when they heard the news. Female staff are being forced to wear red bracelets during their periods as an explanation for why they use the toilet more frequently.

The ridiculous demand was discovered in a report by a Norwegian union into the behaviour of some companies that are obsessed with losing productivity when their employees pay a short call.

The report by Parat union said that a third of companies had video-surveillance installed in their loos. It added:

’The most extreme action was taken by one manager who made women having their period wear a red bracelet to justify more frequent trips to the toilet. Women quite justifiably feel humiliated by being tagged in this way, so that all their colleagues are aware of this intimate detail of their private life.'

The offending firm was not named. Probably the (male) booses don’t want us to find out how loo-ny they really are.
