    how to stop staff taking the mick?

    people from work take the mick and go to the loo for half an hour (seriously does not take that long for a dump). they do it in like a rota one after the other. I've been asked the question how do you stop them from taking the mick?
    answers would be helpful thanks

    Block the toilet

    It can take that long but to do it during work hours is wrong. They have a civil liberty to be able to go but I dont see why if a company can prove the time they are losing that they should be able to deduct it from wages.

    Leave your job

    put a lock on the door only u have a key for problem solved

    People at work take the mick going for fag breaks of half an hour several times a day so there is no way to stop this. So what do they do in the toilet all this time or do you mean they take a toilet break but don't actually spend the 30 minutes in the toilet?

    Are you their manager/superior or co-worker?

    Cigarette smoking can be stopped.Its down to the company if they chose to let them get away with it outside of the official break times.

    Hahaha no worries

    Shoot them, tie them up, let them sit in their own feaces that will teach them! It depends on whether you feel you get the best out of them. I run a relaxed place and see more production, having said that there is always one you will have to jump on. Stop them using the toilet or crack down will only make them go slower and have an adverse effect. Happy workers = Good workers, you may do well to remember it.

    Have some background music playing in the bog. Something like a bog-ized version of this Sales Call Abyss I heard a while back: soundcloud.com/use…yss

    Do they have targets to achieve? Tasks to complete? Projects they are working on? If they are not performing discipline/dismiss them. If they are amazing, no lateness, achieve targets, etc. then just give them a break. It would be important to understand more the business you're in.

    Make this whole team to leave one by one then choose the appropriate people next time you recruite. Go for dual language applicants

    Ban them taking phones into the toilets.

    I love having a paid poo at work!

    Adult nappies?

    at my business I found the few that were taking the Mick always took their phones with them, either for Facebook or watching horse racing so we banned phones from the workplace. the problem stopped almost instantly. All that said I still had one guy going 4-5 times a day for 15 minutes at a time, so I pulled him aside and asked him if he had any medical reasons for this, if he did I wanted a letter from his doctor for it, as it turned out he called me a few choice words and quit, problem solved again.

    ​I don't allow smoking breaks on my time, they can only go on their breaks.

    What are you feeding them?

    Motivate them. If they're messing around then they've clearly lost all interest and enthusiasm for the job.

    In that situation imposing limitations will just mean they relieve their boredom by trying to find a way around them instead.

    You need to do what you can to involve them in the job. Make it feel more rewarding by keeping them updated with the results their work is achieving. Try and add involvement and challenge and automate/remove any dull or disliked parts if at all possible.
