NEW DELHI: India is the strictest when it comes to tardiness as 42 per cent of employers in the country seem to have fired an employee for being late, the highest in the world, says a CareerBuilder survey.
According to the survey, 42 per cent of employers in India have fired an employee for being late and among the nine surveyed countries.
Brazil came in second, a distance 16 per cent behind, where 26 per cent of of employers have fired a staff for coming late, followed by France and Russia jointly at the third place (22 per cent).
Meanwhile, 21 per cent of UK employers have fired an employee for being late. While China with 20 per cent, Germany 9 per cent, Japan 7 per cent and Italy 6 per cent.
Though arriving late is not the norm for workers and employers alike, people sometime get delayed due to some force beyond their control, whether it is a traffic jam or a rainstorm, the survey said.
