"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.
