The Red Headed Employee is a man who works as an employee at the Springfield Nuclear Power Plant.
Little is known about his character, as he appears only once for a very short time. He and Bernie meet with Homer Simpson during a surprise inspection of the plant. The three men are in the basement, looking after a bee. This is because Waylon Smithers, Jr. doesn't want them to be tested by the inspectors because they are 'less gifted'. The bee then escapes from its jar, and Homer runs after the bee, leaving the two men. His name is never revealed, Homer only briefly speaks with him while he starts to ask why they are there.
