Recently a mother of a 10 year old child contacted us because a bakery shop in Germany asked her child for 50 cents to visit the bakery's toilet. The child purchases breakfast for school on a daily basis at this store. When the child asked if the toilet could be used, the shopkeeper replied that a fee of 50 cents is due when visiting the toilet.
After one of our journalists got in touch with the bakery, explaining that a child below 14 should not be charged for visiting the toilet (German laws), the bakery's owner agreed that children (especially clients) should not be charged, the employees of the bakery was made aware of this issue and from now on, children can visit the toilet at no cost.
As usual, if you run into any issues that are similar to this case, feel free to touch base with our journalists for help.
