Hearing officer recommends the dismissal of a food service manager found guilty of failure to properly supervise subordinates and other misconduct


A school food service manager was charged with failure to supervise her staff to ensure that potentially unsafe food was not served to students, and failure to ensure that kitchen equipment was clean and in working condition.

Supervisors on several occasions attempted to help the manager remedy these issues, but she continued to perform unsatisfactorily.

New York City Office of Administrative Tribunals and Hearings Administrative Law Judge Joycelyn McGeachy-Kuls found that the manager failed to take responsibility for exposing students to recalled food and failed to take responsibility for the condition of the school kitchens.

Given the seriousness and persistence of the conduct, Judeg McGeachy-Kuls recommended the manger be terminated.
