Staff should have free access to develop confidence on HR.
Restricting access will give negative signals.
The purpose for which OP wants to restrict access is to increase efficiency,but public perception is equally important.
Employees can come for personal queries about their leave etc,but equally for official work.
At best a query timing can be fixed up in consultation with stake holders or an online query system put in place.
The OP put up the query on 14 December and inspite of several replies has not reverted back.
So no point putting up further posts in absence of OP seeking clarifications or giving her thought process on views expressed.
