Workers at a Connecticut elementary school are alleging that they have been subjected to dangerous working conditions and have filed a complaint with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. The complaint claims that several cafeteria workers have experienced electric shocks while working near a heated serving table that has been alleged to be faulty. These shocks have prompted concerns of unsafe equipment and for the safety of both the workers and children who come into contact with the serving table while getting food.
One employee who expressed fear about suffering a work-related injury from the table has claimed that she was fired for refusing to use it until she could be guaranteed of its safety. The regional director of the school's employee union says the employee has since returned to work. The worker's employer denies that she was fired.
