An employer has laid off three of his employees for arriving late to work due to the heavy rainfall in Lagos state today, May 6.

The boss, identified as @humblecute on Twitter, took to the micro-blogging platform to disclose that he sent his three workers home for being over an hour late to work.

According to him, heavy downpour is not a strong enough reason for them to come late to work as his company has a strong policy on punctuality.

“I sent 3 of my workers back home today..their excuse was ‘Rainfall’ I didn’t listen to them coz that wasn’t enough excuse for me + they already know the rules of the company.

They were 1hr 15 minutes late.. our company has a strict policy on Punctuality!” the employer wrote.

A lot of people were infuriated by his tweet and they dragged him to filth for being inconsiderate to his employers, while advising him to get a staff bus to be conveying his employees to work daily so as to prevent lateness.

Some netizens also dug up an old tweet he made in 2016 where he said he wasn’t going to resume early for work because of rain, and labelled him a hypocrite.
