What do you do if someone in food service doesn't wash their hands?
... If an employee goes to the bathroom, but you can tell that they didn't wash their hands, what do you do?
In interest of my aversion to conflict (I dive into a hole like a rabbit), I would simply exit the building. Unless I am in an argumentative mood, then I'd probably try and find a manager.
Good question, and one that can have several outcomes with its answers.
1) If you're an employer, order them to wash their hands. Failure to comply is a direct disobeyment of the Health and Safety Act of 1979.
2) If you're in employee, remind them that it could cost them their job, and also a customer/several customer's good health.
3) If you're a customer, question why they didn't wash their hands and if they don't answer/don't give a valid reason, make a complaint to the manager and leave.
I would ask to speak to the manager on duty and report it to him.
I would either ask them politely to or tell their manager right away. I guess it depends on the food establishment. If nothing has been done about it then they get a bad review.
