Should Bartender Who Reported Drunk Driver Be Given Her Job Back?
Police said she did the right thing, but her former employer said her actions were bad for business.
An Ohio bartender has been getting a lot of media attention lately after she was fired for reportedly calling police on a patron who left the bar drunk. According to a story by The Huffington Post, the man tested a little over twice the legal limit when stopped by police.
While she was hailed as a hero for doing the right thing by police, her employer fired her. The bartender, Twyla DeVito, is reported to have been told by her now former employer that her actions were “bad for business.” However, there have been instances when bars have faced lawsuits, such as this one in Florida in 2009, when a patron has left the bar and ended up killing someone in a DUI.
What do you think? Did the bartender do the right thing and should she get her job back? If not, should she sue her former employer for unfair dismissal?
