A Kansas Olive Garden Manager was recently fired for requiring an employee to bring their dead dog into work to show proof of the “excuse” being used to call off of work. Apparently the staff frequently calls out and the manager couldn’t take it anymore. 

According to Hollywood Unlocked the manager wrote back to the employee, “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.”  

The retail and restaurant industry is a tough business. Most of the employees are under the age 21 and using this as their first job. Was this the proper way to handle the matter. Should the manager have been fired for their frustrations?
