Primary school dinner lady sacked for 'negligence, carelessness or idleness' after she accidentally served gammon to a Muslim pupil.

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...lim-pupil.html

The girl's parents were then told how close their daughter had come to eating the meat, which is banned in their religion.

Oh FFS.

They complained to the school's catering firm and Ms Waldock, a dinner lady for 11 years, was suspended pending an investigation.

And if her father's ever had a pint, smoked a fag, not observed Ramadan fasting without a proper reason, or kissed anyone other than his wife then he ought to be outed as a ****ing hypocrite.

Interesting - the dinner ladies are expected to be the ultimate guardians of who-can-eat-what? Can't they have a Spinney's-style 'Not For Muslims' section of the serving area? Talking of Spinney's - there's a thought: the check-out girls are now responsible for making sure Muslims haven't bought pork by mistake.......

In the article Nigel Farage has a point that were this a case of a vegetarian being served meat, she wouldn't be fired.

so, if little Edward is allergic to..let's say mushy peas, and the lady served those to him and he "almost' ate them, would she be fired and would there be an investigation?

In that situation, there's a case for the school having to answer for not having a system in place under H&S to protect allergy sufferers. Not for the employee to suffer.

Interesting that the family who asked for her to be sacked are moving to Sharjah this month in order to provide their kids with an upbringing more in line with their religious beliefs. Seems very vindictive to ask for someone to be sacked, not something I would like on my conscience


Hmmmmm

They asked for her to be sacked despite knowing they were moving overseas?? Vindictive spiteful bastards. And cowardly spineless officials who agreed to their request to sack the woman? No polite words to describe them. The school who failed to ensure Muslim kids were properly directed to the non-pork food selection? Incompetent morons.

The only person to emerge from this disgrace with any dignity or credibility is the dinner lady herself............

Shameful - utterly shameful.

Great pic though - I'm sure this is what was served up in the canteen!

Above is a healthy safety issue while the OP is merely cultural; the little bugger wouldn't suffer biological ill effects because a desert voice/s thousands of years ago proscribed pork. My nephew is allegeric to peanuts, and in his case he could seriouly be in bad shape were he to inadvertently injest anything with nuts.

There has to be more to this than we have been told thus far. Are dinner ladies these days supposed to know what every individual kid is allowed and not allowed to eat ? or did she knowingly give the kid the gammon and make a joke about it ? I cannot believe that she would (or could in the UK) be sacked for basically doing her job, i.e. dishing out the food to the kids !!! If she was then she ought to get herself a good lawyer and get down to the labour tribunal smartish and take her employer to the cleaners.
