    Yes but as a shift manager, it's her job to protect the company's interests, and in not making the required cash drops, she was not protecting the company's interests.

    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.

    Preaching to the choir, baby. Read my post quoting you. She should not have to pay reparations. That's stupid.

    Re: Pregnant Popeyes worker fired after armed robbery

    It's common practice, from what information I have, that employees are responsible for the loss of funds when they are on duty. We've had numerous situation here involving "gas and go" thefts where a couple of employees have been killed trying to catch thieves who run without paying because the employee has to cover the loss if they don't. It's why government is looking at legislation to change that practice.

    As for $400 being in the register, why would a fast food outlet, where the highest order would be about $50, and that's a stretch, need or want such a large amount of money in the till? And again, here, clerks are required to take money out of a till, count and deposit it in a safe they can't open, several times during their shifts. It's the only way that many can avoid being robbed, particularly at night.

    And I'm curious - why is the worker being pregnant an issue or even mentioned? Are pregnant women less capable of doing their jobs?

    All that said, forcing an employee to choose between being fired or resisting an armed robbery is pretty stupid, PR wise.
    A Canadian conservative is one who believes in limited government and that the government should stay out of our wallets and out of our bedrooms.

    Certainly we can't hold people responsible for their own actions

    She robbed the store? I missed that. Would you please quote that part of the article?

    It's supposed to make you feel sorry for her. She's extremely young anyway, and is on her 4th baby.

    She failed to follow simple instructions, repeatedly. Her failure resulted in a loss to the store. She should be held accountable

    Actually, the $400.00 policy might not minimize the company's losses in robberies. With robberies, two things seem worth avoiding:

    A. having alot of cash that attracts robbers
    B. having so little cash that when robberies do occur, armed robbers feel "short changed". They then get increasingly aggitated and spend more time in the store demanding cash and valuables from the restraraunt, employees and customers.

    In short, if a robbery occurs, one wants the robbers to quickly get a "good" haul (probably about $200-500 dollars in ones, fives, tens and twenties which makes it seem like even more) and then quickly leave. Things go down hill when aggitated and increasingly desperate robbers start uhmm... "interacting" with people at the store in their quest for cash.

    When things go down hill, costs go up. These costs can far exceed $400 dollars.
