Questions, were you being paid cook wages while working in dish area? Do you have any physical conditions that prohibit this type activity? If you haven't gathered where I am going with this the answer is YES your GM can ask you to do dishes! Unless you have documentation from a physician stating you are unable to perform the tasks being requested of you in the dish area. This type of document may exclude you from working in any kitchen areas/ positions.
You're a cook, doesn't your restaurant have dishwasher, what the cooks need to do is wash their hands, and use gloves.
"and other duties as described" is part of practically every job description, ever.
Yes, is the short answer, but they have to pay you the rate you are hired at, so they have to pay at cook wages while you wash up.
Thats a typical restaurant crapping on u id look for another job hecause once u agree to do dish ull get stuck doin it 24 7

The only time our cooks wash dishes is in the mornings, and that's if they need a pan to be cleaned for re use
