We do not need any more burdensome regulations

We already provide drinking water,cooling fans/ventilation in our service bays

If employee feels sick he/her doesn't have to work

It's not practical to offer a 15 min break each hour,how would we get any cars serviced or repaired,especially if customer is waiting, a lot of times they take a break while waiting on parts being delivered

This is getting into the employees privacy,it's hard enough to conduct an interview when trying to hire someone

This is not a one size fits all type of policy,our business and industry addresses these issues and we provide a safe environment for them to work in

This not good for small businesses
