Anthea Harding who works in the Harrods branch of Subway, was so busy on her shift that she only managed a few bites of the free lunch to which she was entitled as part of her contract. She carefully wrapped up her chicken and mushroom pie, mashed potatoes and beans, value £1.00 to eat later but had no time to eat it later in her shift. so she wrapped it in her apron to eat at home. On her way out of Harrods plain clothes security men searched staff, and she was accused of theft. She has been told that it is company policy to eat free lunches on the premises, but she wasn't aware of this, and did not want to throw away her lunch just because she had been given no time to eat it. She earns £7.50 an hour and the free lunch is an important contribution to her wage.

Please support her immediate reinstatement, and ask her bosses why she is unable to take a proper break to eat her lunch.
