In Brazil, employers should be careful:
A court has ordered a brewery to pay almost £30,000 in compensation to an alcoholic beer taster.
Brewery Ambev was sued by the man who claimed the company did not provide health measures that would have stopped him developing a drink problem.
The unidentified employee downed an average of 3.2 pints a day while at work.
....He also received a bottle of beer to take home after each shift, the court in the Rio Grande do Sul state of Brazil said in a statement.
....The company alleged the employee already was an alcoholic before becoming a beer taster.
...Judge Jose Felipe Ledur said the company still was negligent because an alcoholic should never have been made a beer taster.
