Brazilian wins suit over restroom restrictions

Brazilian wins suit over restroom restrictions

A Brazilian call-center worker who says she was prohibited from using the restroom has won a lawsuit against her employer.
A labor court says in a statement that it ordered the employer to pay $2,200 to the 36-year-old woman, who said supervisors often blocked her from using the restroom and never allowed her to use it for more than five minutes at a time.
The unidentified woman said she also had to report how much time she spent in the bathroom and to ask for permission in front of other employees.
The court's Friday statement said that Teleperformance CRM acknowledged requiring employees to ask permission and to report how long they spent in the bathroom _ but never kept them from going or limited their time there.
