Employees at a local company do not have to log the amount of time they take for breaks; recently, the manager noted that two employees had taken an hour off for a 15-minute break. Accordingly, the manager is now requiring employees to sign out and back in at the main office of the business’ complex.

Which of the following is the greatest flaw in the manager’s reasoning?


The travel time from many of the desks to the main office and back would negate much of the 15 minutes of the break.


Employees who are allowed to sign in on their own could lie about the timing of the breaks.


The observation of two employees does not mean that all employees are doing the same behavior.


Fifteen-minute breaks allow employees enough time to take care of bathroom needs only.


Employees may forget the new procedure, and the manager cannot track breaks without the sign out/in sheet.
