Exclusive: Trowers fires employee for being too smelly
15 January 2016

Only two weeks into January, and Trowers & Hamlins has already issued what must be the P45 of the year. An insider says that it has sacked an employee for being too smelly.

A giftwrapped can of Rightguard and a quiet word is generally enough to resolve this sort of situation, so the poor chap must have been absolutely rancid. He had apparently been at Trowers for years, and the source explained that he was escorted from the building in tears. "There is uproar as to how this person has been treated" he added.

    How it might have looked

But could even the famously unpleasant Trowers management, awarded RollOnFriday's Golden Turd last year, really fire a long serving employee just because he mings like a vase? The firm wouldn't discuss the case, with a spokeswoman saying "we don't have any comment to make".

Anyone up for some pro bono unfair dismissal work. Couple of short letters and a chat to the press should cover it.

The management at Trowers will resort to ANYTHING to get that golden turd again won't they.

I hear that next week they plan on naked shame walking 'late for work' employees through the streets of Manchester...
