Food Employee Illness Reporting

We have to hold the health of our guests above anything else. If you are sick and we mean really sick then you shouldn’t make other people’s food that could make them sick. We know you would feel awful if you were the direct cause of making someone sick.

Read the entire policy below so you know when you can and can’t work while you are sick.


The purpose of this agreement is to inform conditional employees or food employees of their responsibility to notify the Manager in charge when they experience any of the conditions listed so that the Manager in charge can take appropriate steps to preclude the transmission of foodborne illness.
I AGREE TO REPORT THE MANAGER IN CHARGE:
1.Any onset of the following symptoms, wither while at work or outside of work, including the date of the onset:
• Diarrhea
• Vomiting
• Jaundice
• Sore throat with fever
• Infected cuts or wounds, or lesions containing pus on the hand, wrist, an exposed body part, or other body part and the cuts, wounds, or lesions are not properly covered (such as boils and infected wounds, however small)
2.Future Medical Diagnosis:
Whenever diagnosed as being ill with Norovirus, typhoid fever (Salmonella Typhi), Shigellosis (Shigella spp. Infection). Escherichia coli O157:H7 or other STEC infection, nontyphoidal Salmonella or hepatitis A (hepatitis A virus infection).
3.Future Exposure to Foodborne Pathogens:
• Exposure to or suspicion of causing any confirmed disease outbreak of Norovirus, typhoid fever, shigellosis, E. coli O157:H7 or other STEC infection or hepatitis A.
• A household member diagnosed with Norovirus, typhoid fever, shigellosis, E. coli O157:H7 or other STEC infection or hepatitis A.
• A household member attending or working in a setting experiencing a confirmed disease outbreak of Norovirus, typhoid fever, shigellosis, E. coli O157:H7 or other STEC infection or hepatitis A.
I have read (or had explained to me) and understand the requirements concerning my responsibilities under the Food Code and this agreement to comply with:
• Reporting requirements specified above involving symptoms, diagnoses, and exposure specified;
• Work restrictions or exclusions that are imposed upon me; and
• Good hygiene practices.
I understand that failure to comply with the terms of this agreement could lead to action by the food establishment or the food regulatory authority that may jeopardize my employment and may involve legal action against me.
