Amy’s Baking Company in Scottsdale, Ariz., gained notoriety this spring when TV celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay simply gave up trying to turn around the struggling restaurant on his “Kitchen Nightmares” show. “You’re too far gone,” Ramsay said after the owners rejected his suggestions for improving the business. “I can’t help people who can’t help themselves.”
Apparently, the owners did try to help themselves when they wrote the restaurant’s employee policies. No employment lawyer would have approved these rules, which were uncovered by Radaronline.com:
- “If you fail to show up for your scheduled shift we may penalize you monetarily.”
- “Any product such as food or plates that are broken or burned due to direct negligence will be taken from your pay check at ABC’s cost.”
- “Holidays and Weekends are Mandatory, by signing this contract you are accepting that you will be required to work all Holidays, and Weekends .... any No-Show will be monetarily penalized with a fee of $250.00.”
- “The wait staff understands that any and all ‘tips’ are the property of the ‘house.’”
