Pizza award for humiliated worker

The Brazilian aviation authority has been ordered to pay £10,000 and a slice of pizza to a disgruntled former employee.

A court in Sao Paulo told Infraero to pay the compensation to the ex-worker who claimed he had been humiliated by his boss.

The worker, who did not want to be identified, said his manager nicknamed him ‘bin cleaner’ for retrieving a slice of pizza from a bin.

The judge ruled that the former employee deserved compensation for the humiliation of the nickname – and also a slice of pizza.

Judge Eduardo Vieira de Oliveira told UOL: “The slice of pizza was to make the boss think better the next time he wants to make fun of someone in the work place.”
