The business went on to say that it was fixed right away. We want to be clear that the circumstance from two weeks ago was caused by regrettable actions taken by a worker at one of our workplaces. The situation was quickly fixed after the employee admitted his error and apologised for the inconvenience his actions had caused. The founders personally apologised to every employee for the situation and expressed their regret, according to the statement. Look at this:
However, the video infuriated many online. Employee lock-ins are a regrettable practise that violates the rights of employees and the ideals of workplace freedom. It's critical to support an environment at work where people are appreciated and given the freedom to thrive, a twitter user remarked.
