    I agree. She shouldnt be forced to pay for the loss but she deserves the boot for constantly violating company policy that led to a bigger loss.

    But after reading the article the store is denying her claim that they were forcing her to pay for the loss so its possible she made that part up to gain sympathy.

    She's probably not pregnant either.

    It is quite obvious that you do not.
    She violated policy before and was not fired.

    She violated the policy again and got fired.

    How is this not a progression?

    When I was going to college I worked at Taco Bell. We were told if a robbery were to ever happen to "not be a hero", hide in certain areas, and let them do what they wanted to the establishment be it stealing or whatever. I think this will be something resolved with her getting severance.

    Well, well - looks like the company had admitted their error, and offered her job back to her.

    Meh, I don't believe they admitted anything. They were getting bad publicity for firing a pregnant woman. While she shouldn't have had to have paid back the money, her firing was just, because she violated company policy on more than one occasion, and this time, it jumped up and bit her.

    The termination was just and should have stood.

    Gotta wonder if the $400 was worth the publicity? I like their chicken, but mercy me, not the brightest move on their part.
    Are they joking, they can't fire someone for that!

    That depends, Fly.

    In my business experience, there were always steps we had to go through prior to termination.

    Generally verbal warning, written warning, final written warning, and finally termination.

    The bad ones usually flew through the steps quickly, and were exited from the company.

    Just because someone had been addressed about an issue before did not indicate grounds for termination did not indicate that they were worthless morons in need of firing.

    In this case, I have a friend who has several CFA franchises in OH - his understanding was that there had been prior issues with this franchise owner being very overbearing with associates, and corporate had been working with him to improve his leadership skills, along with his managers.

    She shouldn't have to pay reparations, no. That's dumb. But I fully believe her termination should stand, as this is not the only time that she has failed to follow company policy - a policy that clearly minimizes the damage to the company's bottom line in the event of a robbery.
    I'm fine with her being fired, but expecting her to pay it back is absurd.

    Really, if she did pay it back, she shouldn't be fired. There was no harm done to the company.
