Hi,

Conjunctions

-The problem is, [STRIKE]that [/STRIKE]production in her department has dropped.
-Remember, [STRIKE]that [/STRIKE]we didn't have these problems before she started working here.

It says that sometimes omitting the that creates a break in the flow of a sentence, a break that can be adequately bridged with the use of a comma.

Is it a rule or can we put 'that' after those commas?

Thanks.

You can have either the comma, or 'that'; you can't have both.
