Nando’s employees call for changes to cleaning pay policy

Staff at the chicken chain Nando's claim they sometimes have to clean its restaurants without pay.
Current and former Nando's employees at multiple restaurants told the BBC they had to scrub cookers and disinfect toilets after being clocked out.
One claimed the same mops were used in toilets and kitchens while another said they handled chicken without gloves.
Nando's said it was its policy to pay employees properly and it upholds the highest cleaning standards.
Most of its branches do not employ dedicated cleaners - which Nando's described as standard across the food service industry.
The company, which has more than 400 restaurants in the UK, added: "Cleaning is an integral part of restaurant work and is crucial to maintaining high standards of health and hygiene, which we take very seriously."
