Employee Maliciously Complies And Works Only His 8½ Hours, Drives Controlling Boss Nuts

The old saying goes, “Be careful what you wish for.” You don’t really know what you want until you regret receiving what you got. Also, working requires proper compensation. If a boss were to require an employee to work additional hours after the schedule, he should give the employee appropriate compensation, else, the employee wouldn’t find the will and reason to do the additional tasks.

Those would be the key takeaways for today’s story. In this story from the Malicious Compliance subreddit, this employee wasn’t allowed to leave some minutes early because his schedule was strict 8:30am to 5pm. He then used this to his advantage by refusing to entertain work stuff after 5pm because, well, his time is only until 5pm. Find out how the boss reacted and the full story below!
