    ... 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.
