German pub owner left crying into his beer by tribunal ruling

A
German waiter who was sacked for drinking up to 100 bottles of beer every day
has won a case for unfair dismissal.

The
50-year-old, who had worked at the Unter
Taschenmacher pub in Cologne
for eight years, admitted that his managers had repeatedly warned him not to
drink at work.

The
unnamed former employee agreed that he drank up to 100 bottles of free beer a
day with friends while working at the pub.

However,
a tribunal awarded him €3,000 (£2,000) and three months’ salary and said the
pub had been his ‘dream’ job. The man also told the tribunal losing his job had
been devastating.

Pub
owner Rene Sion said he
couldn’t understand why the court had been so lenient with the waiter.
