Re: Katy: What on earth was managment thinking?

I googled around and didn't find anymore updates to this. The public part of Zack's (the suspended/unsuspended employee) Facebook page shows him wearing a Texas Aggies shirt giving a thumbs up, and I it appears he is about the right age, so maybe he headed on to college.

Katy: What on earth was managment thinking?

Katy cookie store reverses decision to suspend employee after he paid for police officer's order

Cop walks up to counter to buy a brownie. The young man working the counter pays it with his own money. Family behind cop throws a fit, both mother and father threatens to physically attack the young man, call him a racist for not offering to pay for their order.

His direct supervisor tells him he did nothing wrong but issues him a reprimand and suspends him for a week anyway, telling him some senior managers wanted him fired.

His outraged mom posts about it on Facebook and sets off firestorm. (I don't think moms should intervene in every unfortunate event in their kids' employment - it's part of learning to deal with stuff -- but I will cut her some slack in this one).

Management rescinds reprimand and suspension, apologizes, and seems to be claiming they misunderstood the situation when they issued the punishment.

Sure.

I believe some significant details were left out of the story, given the accusations hurled at the young man.

He should find a new place to work. If I had a retail place in that area and had an opening, I would track him down and offer him a job.
