“So a lady got fired today cus she bleached so bad her knuckles were dark while her body was white. She obviously can’t serve guests with those hands so we had to let her go.
I am not against bleaching your skin but just do it right.
We do not discriminate staff with conditions of any sort. We offered to move her out of the floor due to complaints of her looking untidy, she decline. Gloves was an option too for her.
We run medical checkups on all staff and find best ways to manage them with us.”
