Good morning!

 

I have an interesting issue here. Last week a friend of mine came to a Post Office branch at Canning Town.

There was already a small queue of just 3 people.

It was Saturday. Closing time was 12:30.

She came to the branch at 12:10. All she needed was to register her biometric details.

The procedure normally takes around 4 minutes.

But the staff of the Post Office refused to service her, because otherwise they would have to stay at work later than 12:30..

After several minutes of arguing my friend had to leave the branch, it was 12:20, still 10 minutes before closure.

 

What should my friend have done in that situation? I'd like to know if the Post Office staff violated the law by doing so? If yes, how could the girl make them act in accordance with the law?

Why? Did they make her leave?

Yes. They refused to service her and told her to leave. You'll be laughing, but they even tried to prevent her from entering... at 12:10!!

Should have gone earlier as if there was anything wrong with it it would take extra time to resolve.

It is shocking customer service, but not illegal.

 

The most you could do would be to put in a complaint to head office, I think that is be worth doing.

And they will merely parrot what is on their website:

Waiting times

Lots of people need to use this service – so if you visit on a Saturday or a Monday you may have to wait longer than usual. You may also be required to attend the following day if there are other people waiting to enrol.

If you visit on a Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday or Friday the waiting times are likely to be shorter.

Please note: customers may be turned away and asked to re-attend where there are long queues prior to closing time.

Well, taking into consideration what you and Michael Brown said, it looks like there's no point doing so, as long as their actions do not contradict their policy and the law.
