Pizza Hut manager accused of threatening employees fleeing Irma

Florida Pizza Hut franchise is getting backlash over its hurricane policies

Employees at a Florida Pizza Hut are speaking out against their manager who apparently told them they would face consequences if they didn't show up to work during Hurricane Irma.

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. However, employees who decide to work during a unsafe tropical storm run the risk of sabotaging their own safety, as well the protection of their cars.

"You can not evacuate Friday for a Tuesday storm event!" a manager said in a notice to employees at a restaurant in Jacksonville, CNN reported. It threatened that if employees did not show up for their shifts for any reason, they would be punished as a no-show.

Consumers have taken to social media to criticize the policy, but it falls in a legal grey area.

Irma was expected to hit Jacksonville on Tuesday.

The memo tells team members they can not evacuate more than 24 hours before the storm, and must return within 72 hours. However, Twitter users were not convinced by any of Pizza Hut's comments in the note and the far-fetched message claiming that providing pizza to the community is considered more important than the safety of its employees.

Jacksonville authorities issued the first evacuation orders for parts of the city on Friday.

Governor Rick Scott also urged employers in Florida on Friday to "be compassionate with your employees as they prepare for this storm and evacuate", according to Snopes.

"We can also confirm that the local franchise operator has addressed this situation with the manager involved", the company added.

After the statement started to go viral, Pizza Hut issued a statement to media outlets, saying the manager's statement did not reflect the company's hurricane policy.
