In Jacksonville, Florida a Pizza Hut (YUM) manager told his employees that they could be fired for fleeing Irma early and missing their shift, according to a note that went viral on Twitter (TWTR) . 

"As a general rule of thumb, we close stores 6-12 hours before storm hits. Or night before if a daytime storm...if evacuating, you have a 24-hour period before storm 'grace period' to not be scheduled. You cannot evacuate Friday for a Tuesday storm event! Failure to show for these shifts, regardless of reason, will be considered a no call / no show and documentation will be issued."
While this was universally frowned upon and Pizza Hut has confirmed that the franchise owner has spoken to the manager in question, this is legally a gray area because they are all at-will employees. At-will employees can be fired for absence, just not discrimination against things like religion, ethnicity and pregnancy.
