KFC facing 2nd complaint over lunch

2012-08-16 09:42

Durban - An Empangeni woman who was not allowed to take non-halaal food to work at KFC has lodged a complaint with the Commission for Conciliation, Mediation and Arbitration (CCMA), it was reported on Thursday.

This was the second such complaint against the fast food chain.

The Witness reported that Sfikile Nokuthula Buthelezi was asking the CCMA to set aside final warnings she received for taking non-halaal food onto KFC premises in Maxwell Street, Empangeni.

United Chemical Industries, Mining, Electrical, State, Health and Aligned Workers Union provincial secretary Bheki Shabane said the woman bought food from a nearby supermarket, but was prevented from taking it onto the premises of the KFC.

The matter would be heard on September 4.

On Friday, KFC lost a case of unfair dismissal against an employee who took phuthu (maize porridge) and bean curry to work at the Empangeni Village branch of KFC.

Jabulani Cele, 31, was reinstated after appearing before the CCMA.

KFC franchise holders Colefax Trading and Yum Restaurants International were ordered to pay him R5 200 in lost wages.

The companies which own KFC follow Islamic practices.

The Witness said KFC's chief marketing officer could not be reached for comment.

    Take them to the cleaners ma'am. Your employer cannot prescribe what you are allowed/not allowed to have for lunch at work. Nail them!

      mofstok - 2012-08-16 10:00

      I cannot even boycott KFC in solidarity because I do not eat their teenage mutant ninja chicken as it is.

      What next, gettig fired for not being a smoker or drinker??????????????

      Same mofstok, I don't think I've had a KFC since about 1995.

      mofstok - 2012-08-16 10:36

      I'm sure Nando's might actually make an advertisement out of this curry.

      I cannot wait for a Nandos advert on this.

      Here in Cape Town in the suburb of Bo-kaap, there is a big stink at the moment because somebody has been granted a liquor licence by the legally constituted provincial liquor board to open a pub next door to a mosque. The moslems living in the suburb are up in arms screaming blue murder as they feel that they have not been consulted and all and feel their religion is not be respected. Yet, in KZN, the moslem owners of these KFC branches fail to respect their staff's right to bring their own food to work which goes to show that moslems are the works biggest hypocrites citing the Koran when it suites them and turning a blind eye to their transgressions against other religions.

  • freddie.miff - 2012-08-16 10:00

    This relates to individual franchise owners. What is KFC's opinion on this matter?

      kaz.hse.7 - 2012-08-16 10:05

      Freddie, you might have missed this in the article "The companies which own KFC follow Islamic practices". It is not related to franchise owners, the companies mentioned above own the rights to KFC in South Africa (should the reporting and writing skills of News24 be believed)...

      al.chemist.7106 - 2012-08-16 10:28

      From my understanding, its a KFC policy, not a franchisee

      squeegee.pilot - 2012-08-16 10:56

      So basically, KFC is an Islamic organization?

      bob.mcmillen.564 - 2012-08-16 11:09

      Squeegee, well that does it for me, I don't agree with many of their laws so won't be eating KFC anymore, simple.

      bless.boswell - 2012-08-16 11:31

      Not all KFCs are Muslim owned, are they?

      freddie.miff - 2012-08-16 11:33

      Kaz, the individual companies that own KFC franchises determine their policy, within broad guidelines. I was wondering what KFC South Africa's attitude to this is, not that of a muslim owned little company called Colefax Trading.

      kaz.hse.7 - 2012-08-16 12:15

      Freddie, simply going to the website of KFC (www.kfc.co.za/franchise) you will note on the franchise application page the following "Thank you for your interest in KFC franchising with Yum! Restaurants International (Pty) Limit.". Yum! was clearly stated in the above article as following Islamic practices. Therefore, KFC South Africa being wholly owned by Yum! follows Islamic practices.

      freddie.miff - 2012-08-16 12:28

      Thanks Kaz

      freddie.miff - 2012-08-16 15:28

      Here is KFC's email to me on this matter: Please be advised it is not KFC's intention to discriminate against any religious and racial groups and we adhere to all rights as sighted in the South African constitution. The disciplinary action was due to non-compliance of KFC's health and safety policies. KFC does not allow any external sources of food to be brought into our stores unless it is stored and consumed in designated areas such as the staff rooms. This is in fact to prevent cross contamination of food as KFC needs to be able to control the source of food coming into the restaurant. These procedures are implemented to ensure quality of food and health of staff and customers."

  • nkululeko.ngubane.165 - 2012-08-16 10:05

    Dismissed for taking "uphuthu" to work, because it is non-halaal!!!..

      rodney.bevan.58 - 2012-08-16 10:23

      It is also not a meat product and therefore falls outside the remit of halaal food. This rule is total rubbish, some overzealous moron of a manager misinterpreted the rule. Besides, as long as the non halaal food is not eaten in the food preparation area and the employee washes their hands after lunch (hopefully they do that anyway) there should be no need for concern.

      jo.barton.92 - 2012-08-16 10:49

      @rodney.bevan.58 - you are 100% correct.Food that is non meat cannot be classified as halaal or are we mistaken. Any Muslim readers wish to enlighten us?

      anwar.rassool - 2012-08-16 13:11

      Firstly.. before I can explain what constitutes halal.. let it be known that as a muslim i firmly believe that is unfair and unjust to deny the staff the right to eat their food on the premises so long as it does not become mixed with the food being sold. Being halal store does not mean or give you the right to prevent your staff from eating their food as long as there are alternative or controls in place to keep the two seperate..like a seperate fridge perhaps for staff to keep their food or small dining are where they can eat in peace. It is unIslamic in every way to treat people of different faiths unjustly especially when it comes down to a basic right like food. Halal is a very broad term which refers not only to food , but also your actions and the way you earn your money. earning halal money means it cannot come from unlawful sources eg cheating people, gambling, sale of alcohol and pork and a few other things but basically it should be earned in an honest way. With regards to food, there are some animals that can be consumed and some that cannot, Pork is not the only meat that is forbidden. animals of prey cannot be consumed as they eat other animals. All seafood is halal except those that die of natural causes.With vegetarian food it cannot be halal if prepared with non halal ingredients e.g wine etc etc or it is prepared in untensils that are used in preparing non-halal foods.Most importantly if there is any doubt at all in the food it is not permissible to eat.

      heibrin.venter - 2012-08-17 02:03

      @Rodney: more interesting is that unless halaal practices were followed through-out the slaughter and processing of the meat it won't be halaal in any case, and this is the prevalent case, since very, very few abattoirs actually follow halaal practices to the full.

  • frans.vanderpoll - 2012-08-16 10:07

    So does the manager actually go around checking what the workers are packing/buying for lunch?

  • Spennybig - 2012-08-16 10:08

    Hate how other peoples religions are allowed to encrouched on a non believers life. Religions are given way to much leway and respect when it comes to law and order.

      mofstok - 2012-08-16 10:14

      Um, how do you know she is a non-believer? The article does not specify. She could be an animist, a Christian, even a Jew for goodness sake! All that we know for certainty is that she wasn't Muslim.

      koo.doyle - 2012-08-16 10:35

      I took it as Spennybig was saying she was a non-believer in Islam, which is your assertion also, is it not?

      bruce.wells.963 - 2012-08-16 13:06

      As far as I am aware, for any Muslim a non Muslim is a non believer, regardless of what religion she belongs to.

  • ferreira.charmaine - 2012-08-16 10:08

    Apparently KFC supplies workers with 2 pieces of chicken a day! Not even a streetwise 2 fills me, as I always seem to get the smallest pieces of chicken.

      carolyn.dewrance - 2012-08-16 10:53

      Guess those pieces of chicken they supply you with, are destined for the rubbish bin and giving them to you is the only way of getting rid of them, Beware those pieces of chicken may be yesterday chicken and not fit for human or animal consumption. Wonder if they pray over each chicken piece they cook. I would never buy food from any of KCF, for fear of getting food poison.

      freddie.miff - 2012-08-16 12:56

      Never mind whether it is filling or not, how unhealthy must it be to eat KFC every day?? Shew if I have it once in three months that is a lot.

  • moi.carla.1980 - 2012-08-16 10:12

    I feel that if KFC want to insist on their employees not brining in non-halaal food, then they should feed them!

      psalm.proverb.3 - 2012-08-16 10:27

      @ Moi, KFC cannot force any employee to eat halaal food. If they can, the it means that every non-Muslim company is entitled to force Muslims to eat non-halaal.

  • ally.oh.7 - 2012-08-16 10:14

    Go back to basics. Is it part of the employee's employment contract that no non-halaal food is allowed in the stores? If it's not, them the company needs to jack up its ideas about who it employs and what the conditions are. Whereas it cannot dictate what employees eats, it should be allowed to stipulate what is brought onto the premises.

      maureenuys - 2012-08-16 10:26

      I agree - when one takes a job the contract should clearly state what the terms and conditions for employment are. Perhaps those who do not eat the supplied halaal food should be allowed a lunch break that allows them to eat off the premises. After all the companies who own the outlets guarantee that what is sold is Halaal to enable Muslim's to eat the food they sell.

      kaz.hse.7 - 2012-08-16 10:27

      Ally, firstly you have to remember that: 1) The constitution overrides any employment contract; 2) The Basic Conditions of Employment Act also overrides any employment contract. So your view of "if it's part of the employment contract" holds no ground what soever in this argument. Any contract needs to comply with the rule of law, not the rules or regulations set out by a business owner.

      william.letsong.5 - 2012-08-16 11:04

      I couldn't agree more with you ally. Another thing is, workers with the CCMA wants to dictate to employers in this country. Employers have no control over their business operations. Just another reason why unemployment in this country is soooooo high.

      wesley.bischoff - 2012-08-16 11:53

      If the contract contains a clause which goes against any law or the constitution, then the contract is null and void.

      freddie.miff - 2012-08-16 12:58

      You cannot contract out of legal obligations and the constitution overides employment contracts like this.

      wendy.webb.980 - 2012-08-16 17:53

      The original articles about this stated that employees originally had a staff room where they could eat whatever they wanted. This separate area was then removed with the result that they could no longer bring non-halaal food. In other words, the conditions of employment were unilaterally changed by the employer. That is illegal.

  • Jane - 2012-08-16 10:19

    How on earth can your employer tell you what to eat! It is not like the women was frying bacon in the kitchen or making ham sandwiches where every one else prepares their lunch. This is NOT an Islamic state governed by Islam.

      wesley.bischoff - 2012-08-16 11:55

      No religion should ever be above the law or the basic human rights of an individual... sadly, most of the time this is not the case. Religion takes precedence 95% of the time.

  • mark.schulz.796 - 2012-08-16 10:20

    Religious preparation of food is as ridiculous as believing in astrology, personally I don't have any problem with people doing either, but when they expect others to abide by, or support, their stupid superstitions/beliefs and get offended when we don't, that is where I draw the line. You can believe in stones as long as you don't throw them at me!

  • vanessa.govender.73 - 2012-08-16 10:23

    Oh for the love of God!!! why do people insist on enforcing their beliefs and practises on others?! The owners are welcome to follow their Islamic practises but that's where their jurisdiction ends. Anyway KFC is just plain the most foul tasting fowel ever!

      wesley.bischoff - 2012-08-16 11:56

      True that, plus the Halaal council gets a portion of the profits made from any/every product labelled as halaal. No wonder they are rolling in the dough.

  • frans.vanderpoll - 2012-08-16 10:25

    I used to work at one of the biggest suppliers of chicken to KFC. Only the slaughtering is done by muslim people while people from all religions are involved in the rest of the processing. Are they going to force these people to only bring halaal food to work?

      wesley.bischoff - 2012-08-16 11:59

      It's so dof. Pork and chicken may be different animals, but they are basically the same. Chickens live and eat in their own filth, they eat anything, even sh*t and other chickens. Yet somehow, only pork is seen as the dirty animal. A chicken is basically a pig without trotters, that has feathers and a beak.

      DuToitCoetzee - 2012-08-16 13:06

      At one of the biggest(if not the only one at that stage) suppliers, that I worked for, all chicken was handled by none-Muslims except the part where the Muslim man was holding his sharp knife against the chickens's throats to cut them while passing him while they were hooked to a line system. When he misses one he could not stop the line because the line was running at 45000 + per shift. As well as the times he needed to go to the loo with his fellow "cutter" missing or when he was talking nonsense with some of his buddies. The rest of the people was eating what ever they want in the same production plant. It is good to show respect for another's believes, but this happenings in the comment are ridiculous.

  • Mark - 2012-08-16 10:29

    If mielie meal porridge and a bean curry are not considered Halaal how on earth can the poison Coca Cola be considered Halaal and sold on the premises?

  • psalm.proverb.3 - 2012-08-16 10:31

    I would encourage non-Muslims in SA to seriously BOYCOT KFC. Period. I would also like to see non-Muslims in SA begin a nationwide BOYCOT OF HALAAL STAMPS ON PRODUCTS. Non-Muslims should not be forced to finance Islam through costs imposed for halaal certifications. Does anyone know of any nationwide petition for the removal of halaal stamps on products?

      william.letsong.5 - 2012-08-16 10:41

      william.letsong.5 - 2012-08-16 10:52

      Fact is you and your crowd can boycot KFC, but remember at the end of the day people will lose their jobs and won't have an income. I've got a better idea, why don't you take to the streets, break burn and destroy everything just because someone couldn't take their non halaal lunch to work.

      suleiman.henry - 2012-08-16 10:53

      It is interesting that your name is taken from a book that teaches tolerance. I sincerely hope that you boycott all Halaal institutions and products... Hope u enjoy ur 'wimpy' burger. Made for wimps...

      psalm.proverb.3 - 2012-08-16 10:56

      @ William Do you even grasp the issue here? A nationwide petition to various companies in SA stating non-Muslims' objections to halaal stamps is a good start. If they decide to be unaccommodating, then we boycot. A boycot would entail- 1. boycotting unnecessary products that carry the halaal stamp (i.e. sweets, chips, biscuits, etc). 2. buying necessary food items that largely don't have halaal stamps (red meat, fresh chicken, fruit, veggies, etc). This would mean avoiding frozen chicken, etc. Really, this is not rocket science. The thing is, all you need is a substantial number of non-Muslims in SA to boycot halaal, and the companies are hit in the pocket. We should not be forced to finance Islam through halaal. The problem though, is that South African consumers are not active nor vocal enough. We desperately need proper consumer activism in SA.

      wesley.bischoff - 2012-08-16 12:02

      Then any benefit gained by your religious affiliations and institutions should also be boycotted. No religion, especially xtianity, is above the law. Even though most think they are.

      psalm.proverb.3 - 2012-08-16 12:13

      @ Wesley, What "benefit" would this be? There is no Christian certification in SA. Honestly, I never take your comments on Christianity seriously - mostly rants. Only you could ever turn this non-Muslim issue into a "Christian" issue. There are atheists who strongly object to being forced to finance Islam through halaal.

      wesley.bischoff - 2012-08-16 14:17

      Hmmm let's see, churches get tax breaks and subsidies. Sure they don't have a council that profits, but they make money other ways.

      psalm.proverb.3 - 2012-08-16 17:04

      @ Wesley, What do tax breaks have to do the certification of food??? Furthermore, tax breaks are given to NON-profit organisations, which include religious organisations. That, by the way, is common around the world. If you don't like this, move to another planet...

  • william.letsong.5 - 2012-08-16 10:46

    Of course KFC's chief marketing officer could not be reached for comment as he is practicing Ramadan at the moment. Catch him Friday evening after dark. The fact remains that non-Islam must accept the Islam, but as far as the reverse is concerned to the devil with the Infadels.

    Is halaal food readily available in township spaza shops (assuming they live there)? I am quite sure that employees do not mingle and eat with patrons so what is the problem. you cannot force anybody to eat halaal food. I do not mind it myself but we have been forced to buy halaal meats in just about every supermarket.

    In the Islamic Countries they have a special area in the shops where the non-muslim can buy pork meat. The majority of people in South Africa are non-muslim. Why do we need to finance Islam? For every mark of Halaal on all the food the companies are paying ex amount of money to the Islamic agencies. Trust me it is not a small amount. So every person in South Africa, Muslim or not are contributing to the Islamic religion. Websites concerning the mark on all foods:http://gatewaynews.co.za/2012/05/31/halaal-trade-have-we-let-it-go-too-far/ http://www.billmuehlenberg.com/2010/07/15/concerns-about-halal-foods/

      Johan De Beer - 2012-08-16 20:55

      You're quite right Martie. I refuse to buy anything with a halaal sign on. I even started off buying free range chicken due to this. Then I discovered that free range is way more healthy and better value as well.

      zaid.cassiem.23 - 2012-08-19 08:21

      Interesting, yet no Muslim forces these companies to put the Halaal sign on their goods. Rather it is the producers of these food items who heckle the Islamic Council or Muslim Judicial Council because every Halaal sign means MORE SALES!!!! Get your ducks in a row please. And why should you be trusted for this information? You cannot even supply the CORRECT facts or figures? A Halaal certificate is a few hundred rand PER YEAR. And the company involved pays someone for their TIME and FUEL to go out to the food plant or abbatoir to certify their Halaal status. Your hate is obvious, your IGNORANCE palpable.

      It is not about halaal food being better. It is about Muslims complying with their religion. They are prohibited from consuming meat that has not been prepared in a certain way. [Goodwill for the day done. Educating one ignorant soul at a time..]

      Yeah right Sapna. Better not overdo it with the goodwill hey. Fortunately for you you brought all this overwhelming goodwill down a notch with an insult to the poor ignorant soul. Really, what were you thinking? What would they say back at the mosque when they learn about this unexplainable surge of goodwill that you bestowed on all those infedels?

      lol johan i jst lyk yr comments on ths article hey...they r superb

    A few comments, some related and some indirectly related based on comments. KFC is an international company with franchises all over the world. Their policy (I assume based on what i have read here) is to have food that has been authorised to be sold as Halaal, making it possible for people who from a religeous perspective are allowed to eat it. Brining in food from outside, that has not been "Halaal approved" may get mixed up with "approved foor stuffs", which is then in contradiction to the company's policy, and could lead to legal action taken against KFC. Perhaps KFC should have an area where employees can take their home made/store bought lunches seperately to ensure there are no mix-up...for someone to get dismissed for it, that is debateable, but i dont know the details of the cases mentioned, so cannot comment. However, normally an employees will sign a contract agreeing to company policy, not sure if this was the case. I have worked in many different countried, many of them predominantly muslim. I can categorically state that KFC in South Africa is the WORST!!! Tasteless, fatty, oilsoaked (old oil many times) and unappetising to look at. In other countries I found that KFC is tasty, the outlets are clean, personnel are professional, helpful, and because jobs are scarce, they really put in the effort to give good service. KFC SA, go have a look internationally, and make some changes please!!

      True true, but i remember England's KFC's are just about the same as ours. Except there they get greasy wraps and baked beans.

      wendy.webb.980 - 2012-08-16 18:01

      It seems that originally they had a separate area where thay could eat which was then removed. That is an illegal unilateral change of contract if it has this sort of mateial effect on their conditions of employment.

    Does this mean that they can't pop out to the Supermarket in their lunch hour to buy some groceries? If they are that fussy they should supply lockers in a considered safe area, and a safe area to have their own meals for the staff.

    Quite a few people suffering from Islamophobia here. I encourage all you 'keyboard ninjas' to come air your views at mosque on a friday. Step out from behind your cell phones and keyboards...

      Johan De Beer - 2012-08-16 20:45

      Yeah Omar, then you peaceful muslims will show them, right? Perhaps have your ninja women take on the keyboard ninjas?

      Johan De Beer - 2012-08-16 20:46

      Oh, and Fridays are working days.

  • DuToitCoetzee - 2012-08-16 13:16

    Did anyone every pick up that the colour of the chicken pieces in the KFC add are lighter than the ones we get served with. O,,yes, they used clean oil for the add. I hope some KFC outlets will "change their oil" more regularly.

  • terence.wessels - 2012-08-16 15:03

    I've said it before, boycott KFC, they are racist and will not employ whites or even sell them a franchise. The food is poison and greasy, and the chips really really SUCK!! Stay away pls, the arrogant attitude they have is disgusting.

      Pixie86 - 2012-08-16 15:28

      They won't even sell to black people, only an elite few! All KFCs in the former transkei are owned by one guy! Their food sucks anyway!

    firstly I am amazed that News 24 never really sees many comments from Charo's until its about Charo's, secondly how is this news? there are strict guidelines in food industry, if these guidelines are set out for the health and safety of patrons and staff and anybody goes outside of these guidelines then steps must be taken, simple ! this smacks of an arrogant employee feeling their rights are more worthy than that of the company and patrons. IMO, yep fire her.

  • vincent.vinsaint - 2012-08-17 06:33

    In a near future I see KFC as a multi-national corporation influencing policies of international politics...since it's American...it most probably is already!
