In addition, your employees could file a complaint against you that would require time and money to settle, especially if you must comply with the wage and union rules.

However, there is cost that is less measurable and much more harmful to your business, that of your employees’ motivation. Indeed, the presence of allocation mistakes create a sense of injustice and dissatisfaction among employees who are subjected to them and who feel frustrated and bullied. If these errors are common, it will have a long-term impact on their sense of belonging within the company.
