How To Tell My Boss I Can't Work In The Bakery...
0

8 posts in this topic

Hi, just needed some advice on how to tell my boss that I can't work in the bakery anymore because it is making me sick....should i get a doctors note? Also...if I do deli shifts...will the gluten in some of the meats affect me? It is just slicing the meats...and we make like 8 sandwhiches a day...the rest is veggies/fruits.

A doctor's note never hurts. I doubt the gluten in meats will be anywhere as bad as all the bread and flour in a bakery. Good luck!

You should be fine in the deli as for one thing you will be wearing gloves when your handling the food. A doctors note sure won't hurt to get the boss to listen.

Just so people are aware of this...alot of deli meats do either contain gluten or are processed by/beside or in a no gluten free facility. Even hamburger or hamburger patties can have gluten in them. In the deli I work in there are only 3 kinds of gluten free meets..but I can't eat them because they are beside all of the other meats. Unless you go to a natural deli/butcher shop...or buy pre-packaged meats that says gluten free. I know Grimms meats are mostly gluten free...but like i said the would have to be prepackaged or seperated from the other meats at the deli. It's probably different in a big city though. I have a pop. of 3500 here...so we don't have a massive deli. Lol.

I work in a convenience store that has a deli. None of the meats that we sell have gluten in them, so check the labels of what your's sells. When I have to make sandwiches, I wear gloves and never touch the bread or hold it near my face. I wipe the sandwich counters with a wet paper towel, and never put my own food on it.

As for working in the bakery, I agree with getting a note from your doctor. There would just be too much wheat dust in the air for my health.

I work in HR, so I highly recommend a doctor's note. In case there's any future problems, you'll want to be sure that Celiac Disease was documented to protect you.
