This is an OSHA violation. Use the bathroom when you need to, tell OSHA the name of the person who denied you, the time, and the employer, and report their ass online tonight.

Next time they try this, hold up your phone and ask them to deny you a restroom break on video, watch them either back down, or double down and get a sure fire fine for the warehouse.

They'd probably fire them for having their phone out in the warehouse.

You should do it until they fire you. Then sue and get that fabulous fun-employment

What idahononono says - Do it. Do it now. Careful documentation is key - Not "so and so said something about that last week." Rather, "On August 22, 2022, at 10:35, my supervisor, Joe Schmoe, saw me walking to the bathroom, to urinate. He told me __________, but I had to go, so I went anyway. We spoke again at 2:00 that day. He said XXX and showed me a page of guidelines that read 'YYYYYYYY". I said 'ZZZZZZZZZ"...

Always make sure to get rules like this in writing. Makes it harder for them to deny when the lawsuit comes around.

'O hey boss. Sorry what did you say ? No bathroom breaks allowed? O sorry, I didn't get that internal memo. Could you CC me again so I don't forget? I had to go so badly, it probably just slipped my mind. I'll make sure to set a reminder on my phone once you send me that memo per mail. Thanks! xoxo'

This. Or take photos of signs of rules.

Don't quit. Go to the bathroom when you need to. Find a lawyer.

Quitting just lets them win.

Yeah it breaks my heart when these terrible employers say “I’m going to need you to resign” for something like this and then the worker quits because of low self esteem. They were given a gift and they SQUANDERED it, I tell you!

Pretty sure OSHA will care.

Urinating and defecating are not some passive activity you should put off until later.

Your long term health is in danger.

It's an osha violation to refuse to let employees use the restroom when needed. I bet a lawyer would love to take the case
