Cashier sacked for giving away 2p bags
Saturday 09 April 1994
A SUPERMARKET cashier who was sacked because she gave away free carrier bags lost her case for unfair dismissal yesterday.
Susan White, 20, of North Kenton, Newcastle upon Tyne, was sacked for gross misconduct after a manager saw her give away carrier bags worth 2p.
She claimed the real reason for her sacking was that she had fallen pregnant.
The hearing was told that the manager had picked up receipts from the shop floor to back up his case after watching Miss White from an office. After a two-day hearing, her appeal was dismissed. The panel declined a request from Kwik Save for Miss White to pay their costs.
