  •  If the waitress (0+ / 0-)

    is telling the truth, this policy is listed nowhere in the employee handbook.

    She's also repeatedly said that she tried to take every precaution to crop out any identifying info about the customer, and THOUGHT she had done so with the signature as well.

    •  what the waitress is really saying: (0+ / 0-)

      "i'm trying to cover my ass by denying knowledge of the policies, and even if I did violate the policies, I still tried to do it in the nicest way possible"

      that usually doesn't (and shouldn't) fly in any company. i'd fire her too.

      •  How do you know that, though? (1+ / 0-)

        How do you know the company isn't really saying "this is making us look bad, so we're going to say a policy exists that doesn't"?

        Unless you've seen the Applebee's employee handbook, I don't see how you can say for certain that the waitress is the one lying here.  And I don't see why the company should automatically get the benefit of the doubt over the former employee.
