Letter writer: Is my supervisor allowed to stop me from going to the bathroom?
“I would seriously consider changing jobs. Your supervisor’s behaviour is outrageous. Needing to go to the toilet is a basic human need. This sort of stress will only make your stomach worse.”

“Just inform him that you are going to the washroom, don’t ask for permission. But leave your mobile, don’t take with you. Maybe your supervisor is not letting you to go to the washroom because you take too long time. And that’s because of your mobile.”
“The supervisor is somehow right. You can’t just walk way and leave the place without anyone in charge so better call your supervisor to stay there as you go help yourself or suffer.”
“Many jobs require coverage of specific areas at all times. A supervisor or a coworker needs to be covering when you can’t be there.”
