_ A Kansas restaurant is parting ways with its manager after imposing strict rules to employees about taking time off. A message shared with TV station KCTV5 showed an Olive Garden manager telling employees that if they needed to take time off, “[they] might as well go and look for another job.”
… The message shared with employees read, “Our call-offs are occurring at a staggering rate. From now on, if you call off, you might as well go out and look for another job. We are no longer tolerating ANY EXCUSE for calling off. If you’re sick, you need to come prove it to us. If your dog died, you need to bring him in and prove it to us.”
… After the story went viral, a representative from Olive Garden confirmed that they parted ways with the manager, as the manager’s message did not align with company values.
