That’s not a misprint. Carrabba’s Italian Grill gave 60 employees less than 10 minutes notice Sunday that the restaurant was closing, according to the Staten Island Advance. That’s what employees learned at a 10 a.m. meeting over the weekend.
To make matters worse, management apparently had known about the closing for a couple of months, an employee told the Advance.
The company paid all employees two weeks’ severance, and some employees were placed at other jobs, the parent company OSI Restaurant Partners told the Advance. But an employee noted that her new job was on-call – and severance pay didn’t go higher than $300.
Employees also complained they were supposed to be informed of a closure 90 days in advance.
Hey! Merry Christmas, everybody! Come on! This company is a family!
