Washingtonpost.com – A manager of one Pizza Hut in the path of Hurricane Irma threatened to discipline workers who evacuated for the storm outside of a designated time frame — and the brand has come under fire on social media for the “shameful” policy.
A photo began circulating on Twitter of a memo posted for employees in one Jacksonville Pizza Hut location, with an explicit list of instructions for employees.

“To all Team members,” the memo begins, before laying out a policy that dictates that employees cannot evacuate more than 24 hours before the storm and must return within 72 hours. “Failure to show for these shifts, regardless of reason, will be considered a no call/no show and documentation will be issued,” it reads. “After the storm, we need all TM’s available to get the store up and running and serve our communities as needed.”
Mannnnn could you imagine how whack it would be if your friends and family were inquiring into how you died and all your parents or loved ones could say was “He didn’t want to miss his shift at Pizza Hut, even with Irma approaching….his supervisor said they woulda wrote him up.” Smh I’m furious just thinking about the prospect of this, get it together Pizza Hut…your generic ingredients aren’t worth risking the lives of your employees.
