Espresso House will be centrally visited by the Labor Inspectorate in the first quarter of next year. By that time, the coffee chain must show that it has tidy working conditions.
The reason is that employees at Espresso House, both in Norway and Sweden, have come forward and told about an extreme job pressure, frequent checks and lack of overtime pay.
After a meeting with the Labor Inspectorate, the coffee chain has proposed a plan to clean up what is referred to as problematic working conditions.
– “Based on the information received and an action plan Espresso House has prepared, the Norwegian Labor Inspection Authority has stated that they want to give Espresso House time to address the problems mentioned in the media and to implement the necessary measures for the employees to have a proper working environment,” says Trine Hammer in the Norwegian Labor Inspection Authority, E24.
