I just read a email from one of the bosses that people would not be allowed to work more than 10 hours straight. That's the same person who, about half a year ago, told me that the minimum work expected from underlings would be 11 hours a day (9AM-8PM) including saturdays. Now someone probably pointed out that working 24 hours and having an accident would be considered grossly negligent, insurance would not pay or rather try to get the money back from those bosses. Wow, it took only one heart-attack, one almost fatal accident (that I know of) and the danger of having to pay for lifelong medical care to reach that conclusion. I'm amazed it went that fast.

I think the point is that you shouldn't work in the experiment for more than 10 hours. As long as you then take a break in your office for a few hours and catch up on some analysis, you will then be perfectly fit to go back to the east hall.

For example:
07:00-17:00 east hall
17:00-20:00 office
20:00-24:00 east hall

Insurance happy, workers happy, management happy, one big happy family.
