Clock by skyscraper

Do you have to be at work by a certain time?

Most workplaces have rules that workers have to follow - but do they make life easier?

Are rules and regulations a necessary evil? Feifei and Neil talk about workplace rules - and explore language for talking about rules.

Key phrases when talking about rules and regulations:

  • Smoking in the office is against company policy.
  • Accepting gifts is against company policy.
  • I'm sorry, but we're not allowed to give out personal details.
  • I'm afraid that's a no-no.
