    Thumbs down Norwegian co. makes women wear red bracelets at period time

    UNREAL!! That is just wrong on so many levels. "While the name of the firm that made female workers wear red bracelets was not disclosed, the report has gone for review to Bjorn Erik Thon, Norway's chief consumer ombudsman, according Current.com.

    Thon stated that "toilet codes relating to menstrual cycles are clear violations of privacy" and are "very insulting to the people concerned."

    The name of the Co. should be made public. IMO

    wow, why not just make them go off into a tent in the woods so they don't contaminate anything?!

    What, is the point in the bracelets and why the he77 is it their employer's business to know this information anyway???

    okay, what on earth is wrong with norwegian employers that they are monitoring how many trips to the loo their employees make??? Sometimes even surveiling the bathrooms?? Signing visitor logs??? Do you have to indicate if it was number one or number two? Is that time of the month considered number three??

    Are unnecessary trips to the john so rampant in this country that they are affecting the gross national output??

    WHT?

    I think that manager is a pervert who's getting his kicks this way... Not only should they name the company, they should name the manager!

    The kind of moods I had when I had my period some man would have been wearing that red bracelet around his throat.

    UNBELIEVABLE !!!
    Why would any woman want the guys at work to know this very privet matter?
    How does it relate to the job?
    What does this idiot boss do in his free time

    I am not moving there for sure

    Seems like all the women could just all wear red bracelets every day. I mean, who could prove any different?
    I mean, until this company policy is stopped and that manager is fired.

    I am very surprised this has come out of Norway - you would expect it from a country where women are 2nd class citizens, but not there. It is such a gross invasion of privacy - and what happens if you get pregnant and want to keep it to yourself? If someone is monitoring your cycle they would know straight away! If I was an employee I would take the company to the cleaners over this.

    I think I would go all out and make dangle-y earrings out of tampons.

    Ridiculous! I don't know about ya'll, but I would not need any identifiers at that time. I believe my attitude pretty much says it all. And I pity the fool who would dare question my trips to the ladies room - or anywhere else for that matter!
