Florida Pizza Hut threatens to punish workers who flee Irma


A Pizza Hut in Jacksonville, Florida, is under fire after its attempt to limit workers' evacuations ahead of Hurricane Irma went viral. In a note that has been circulating online, a Florida location of the pizza chain issued strict rules for employees scheduling work as the state prepared for Hurricane Irma. "If evacuating, you will have a 24-hour period before storm 'grace period' to not be scheduled," the note reads. "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."  

The storm is not expected to arrive in Jacksonville, where this particular Pizza Hut is located, until Tuesday. The note also says that, in the event of an evacuation, workers "MUST" return within 72 hours.
