WOMAN TOLD SHE HAS NO RIGHTS TO USE HANDICAP TOILET AS SHE'S NOT HANDICAPPED

A reader shared about a woman who was accused of having no rights to use the handicap toilet. She went into the handicap toilet as she was pushing a stroller and could not get into the normal cubicle. A cleaner and supervisor at CompassOne then approached the toilet and started knocking to check if there was anyone inside. The woman said they could not hear her answer as they were talking loudly among themselves. They soon opened the door, leaving her exposed without her pants. She complained to the management but received a letter telling her she has no rights to use the handicap toilet as she is not handicapped. She has since reported this to the police.

The media reported today (24 Sep) that despite more Singaporeans being appointed regional heads and senior managers at international banks both in Singapore and abroad, not many go on to take on top positions.
