Team Members must wear clean clothes and always follow our Dress and Appearance policy. Review the Dress & Appearance Policy for your position with your Manager. As a Ruby Tuesday Team Member good personal hygiene helps us keep our Guests safe and reduces the risk of spreading illness.
Your fingernails should be kept short and clean, and you must wash your hands often to prevent cross contaminating food and spreading illness. Never handle food with an exposed or open wound. Open cuts or sores require a double barrier,such as covering with a bandage and a finger cot, which is available in thefirst aid kit in the manager’s office.
Food borne illnesses can be spread by people. Avoid wearing jewelry that could be contaminated, like rings or dangling bracelets. Chewing gum and keeping open beverages in food handling areas is prohibited.
Never come to work if you’re sick. Keep your germs to yourself, especially if you have been confirmed to have a food borne illness,are vomiting, have diarrhea, jaundice, a sore throat or a fever. A doctor’s note may be required before you can return to work. hot of someone coughing>
