Teen Quits JD Sports After She Claims She Was Asked To Continue Working After 'Bursting Blood Vessels' Vomiting

A teenager quit her job at JD Sports after she 'burst blood vessels' while vomiting during a shift.

Jasmine Dinnie was working in a JD Sports shop earlier this month when she told bosses she felt ill, having thrown up twice at home before getting to work.

However, the 17-year-old claims that her manager told her she would be 'letting her down' and 'today was too busy' for her to go home.

Jasmine says that she then threw up again while at work and that her 'blood vessels burst', and she eventually took the decision to go home.

In a post to her Facebook account, she said: "So this is very unlike me, however, I felt it was necessary to share the way staff are treated.

"I was warned by other people not to work here but I ignored it.

"I've worked here for a month now and I've come to realise how poorly the staff are spoken to based on my own experience and seeing it myself with others."

The sixth-former continued: "One of the days I was really ill. I had thrown up twice in the morning but I managed to get myself in to work to show that I've put in the effort.

"I thought that if I continued to feel ill, I'd be able to go home.

"I ended up being sick in one of the toilets and that wasn't enough to leave. I was told that 'today is too busy' for me to leave, that it's 'not fair' and that I'm letting her down.

"I had thrown up to the point where I had burst the blood vessels in my face so by that point I decided to leave as I wasn't fit to work another five hours."

But that wasn't the end of it.

Jasmine went on to explain that she received a text, all in caps, from her boss ahead of a later shift, asking, 'WHERE ARE YOU?' even though she wasn't due to start her shift until 1pm.

And the final straw was when she was shouted at by a group of bosses for allegedly returning late from lunch, telling her to go in the back and 'sort her attitude out'.

"I am not a baby, I don't need to be spoken to like that or put in a time out," she wrote.

"Bear in mind someone had already quit this week due to how she speaks to her staff. This then led to me quitting and caused an even bigger scene.

"I had three (staff members) in a row having a go at me on the shop floor with me obviously arguing back. I was told I'm no longer welcome in the store too."

Jasmine urged people not to work for the store, adding another member of staff quit recently due to the behaviour of their bosses.

She also shared an email address for the HR department and advised other employees to speak out about any issues they had.

LADbible has contacted JD Sports for a comment on the allegations made.

A JD Sports spokesperson told the Daily Star: "We are aware of the allegation on social media.

"This is being investigated in line with company protocol, and as such we cannot comment further at present."
