deserving of respect? or country-invading-killers-of-innocent people not worthy of it? words spoken out of turn by this specsavers employee? or fair comment not worthy of the fuss being made?

standard lefty snowflake brainwashed moron using the freedom provided by those he disrespects to disrespect them.
I'd expect him to get the bullet, not for this opinon but because he'll lose them punters.
^ That's if it's true of course. Standard practice to suspend an employee over any kind of issue at all these days.
It's the rude and arrogant point of view of an individual, not Specsavers who have done everything right as far as I can see. What a *** the employee is though :(
TTT - // I'd expect him to get the bullet, not for this opinon but because he'll lose them punters. //

I'd expect him to get sacked because he clearly does not belong in a customer-facing environment where he is required to do his job, smile, and keep his obnoxious un-called-for opinions to himself.
^ If it's true. A customer can make any kind of allegation towards an employee and they could be lying through their teeth (not saying this Twitter user is) and the employee will be suspended (sometimes with a loss of earnings). You can't judge at this stage.
A fair point - we must assume innocence until guilt is proven.

noop that is for a criminal process - and this is an employment issue - no guilt no fine no nothing....
Yes, I`ve been contacted by my company (looking for evidence) when people have tried to claim compensation for all sorts of things. Don't underestimate how wily the general public can be.
PP - so there is no presumption of any sort and the powers that be make a decision?

I disagree on two points - even though this is not a criminal situation, we should not presume guilt until the facts have been ascertained.

The second point is, there may well be guilt, and indeed a fine. If the employers opt to keep the employee in his job, they may well 'fine' him as a punishment and example.
Boots on the ground for me then in future. Not speak salivas.
Storm in a teacup, shortly to be forgotten by next week, around about the same time as the miscreant will be signing on, like the clown at the bank with the vegan last week.

Get on with your lives people, it’s not Specsavers policy so not newsworthy beyond 24 hours.

as an advanced english user Andie let use the language as intended - guilt in criminal cases and not other things - fines payable to the crown according to certain rules

"let us call a thing a thing and not another thing"
a philosopher - Butler I think

We did that for years Chill. You know, shrug the shoulders, do a bit of wide eyed disbelief, wind a finger against our temples and ignore them, they will go away, attitude. Guess what they don't go away though. Every time they get away with a slight, or a lie, or a pc creep they feel emboldened and want a bit more. Time to push back if you value your freedom of speech and opinion. When I say push, I mean thump.

Yeah as I say. If you have something important to say for God's sake from now on start at the end.

erm yeah OK (*)

bad specsavers
Did you miss a word Toupee? ^^ :))
No-one has given a thought as to why this person came out with such outrageous remarks. Could it be that he/she was from Syria ? Air attacks over there did kill many innocent people. Maybe,just maybe, this employee has had friends or relatives killed in one of these attacks .Pent up frustration and inner anger would have taken over. Whilst I am not excusing the outburst I am just trying to point out a different angle to this scenario.
andres

Imaging if such insults were made against a Muslim, by a relative of a person killed in the London or Manchester terrorist attacks?
