"pruned a bush without performing a risk assessment"
is that a euphemism?

Well I can see this is not at all the thread I was hoping it would be.

I need to see pictures of the bush in question before I can form an opinion on this subject.

"The 43 year-old had been accused of breaking rules over disciplining a youngster, having poor relationships with colleagues and breaking health and safety rules, the tribunal was told."

Obviously, I don't know the woman, but she kind of has biatch-face in that photo. Wouldn't be surprised if she was a pain in the ass to work with and they were scraping together some reasons to dismiss her. Problem is you can count on a biatch to take you to court.

YOU'RE FIRED!!

Today, it emerged that she had been awarded £70,000 - the maximum possible amount -

We need a law like that.

goddammitsomuch.  This has got to rank as one of the most disappointing threads I've seen in quite some time.  A teacher trimming bush should be nothing but hawt lesbo stuff.

FTFA:

One "ridiculous" allegation centred on suggestions that Miss Smith, from Crookes, Sheffield, had not pruned a bush without performing a risk assessment.


So did she do it or not?

In all fairness, when you have to deal with "problem youths," a bittchface is probably an asset.  She can probably also fight, shout commands,  take control, give spankings...


/...aaaaand I'll be in my bunk.

And what did George Bush beta aka George Bush Senior aka "Read my lips" have to say about the trimming.  Did he complain or did she sneak up on him.

(I read the FA live with it)

What a risk assessment might look like.
 
2013-01-31 01:00:13 PM
I am completely shocked that this was in fact, just a bush.
 
2013-01-31 01:01:55 PM
I thought the only women who could be fired for bush trimming were porn stars...

/Which this thread badly needs.

FTFA: She added: "I was on full pay for nine months doing nothing, which is something I was horrified about because I have friends who run companies and were having to make redundancies."

wtf does that mean in English?

She was on paid leave for nine months which is silly because she has friends that run businesses that are downsizing.

According to that sentence, she did do a risk assessment. Double negatives.

Obliviously, a ginger-based punishment.

Either that or she didn't prune the bush because she didn't perform a risk assesment.

I had a friend from England visiting a while back and had a tree being removed at the same time. He couldn't believe that I didn't need permission from the "city counsel" first.

I'd love to put my penis inside her vagina.

/and by "put my penis inside", I mean "trim"

She felt guilty about being paid for doing no work, while some of her friends were forced to lay off employees due to the poor economy

Sharp knees.  Would not hit.

The poor bush probably got a brazilian and died.

FTFA: After she was sacked she was placed on the "dismissed persons register", which hindered her chances of gaining new employment.

This would only be reasonable if there were a "Asshole Employer Register". Even then, they hold to much power in hiring an firing. Who hasn't had a boss who had a "fark you, I'm the boss, I can fire you! attitude?

I've run a business, and it failed, but not because of my employees. It lasted much longer than it should have because of those employees.

I was all excited when I seen subbys headline, and then went to read the article,, now I'm like WTF, I am dissapoint

GDubDub: Dismissed Person's Register?  They still have good old fashioned and state sanctioned blacklists in the UK?


Apparently there are. Although lawyers seem to be slowly waking up to the fee opportunities of getting some of them declared illegal by the courts.

Sometimes, lawyers just might perform a public service.

Depends on the age and type of the tree and where it is. We don't have HOAs, but if you live in a 200-year old house with a 200-year old garden, you're not free to do whatever the hell you like. You know this before you but the house.

This is England. We like old stuff.

Wait. Is it even possible it is not?!

It sounds like the manager needs to be in the secure unit (I'm assuming this is the UK equivalent of a Group Home).

In a lot of places in the US you would need permission. In most cities and many towns, I think you probably would.

She also... Pruned.. The hedges... Of many small villagers

In Portland, if the tree is in the parking strip you will need permission to remove it AND proof that you have already purchased an approved replacement. The street trees are part if the city's urban forest.
