NAPANEE HARVEY'S RUBS EMPLOYEES THE WRONG WAY
1/11/2018 11:31:17 AM


Napanee Harvey's has come under fire after an employee released a memo to the media. The memo, which has since been retracted stated increased minimum wage as the reason for the changes saying it greatly affected the restaurant's operations and labour costs. It went on to say that employees who up-sell the menu will receive more shifts than their co-workers, sick days will require at least eight hours notice and any unapproved discounts or wasted, spilled and damaged products could result in a deduction from the associate's pay. It also indicated the restaurant is struggling due to recent decisions made by corporate head office. President of Harvey's Ken Otto says he was unaware of the Napanee memo and only found out about it through a media inquiry. Otto says-quote: "We immediately contacted our franchisee because it [the memo] contained some provisions that are not consistent with Ontario labour standards," He added, "There are parts of the memo that we like in terms of rewarding employees for performance with meals and time off, however, we wanted to make sure that our franchisees comply with provincial labour standards." A copy of the new memo was not made public but Otto says the new version is in full compliance with the provincial labour standards. myFM reached out to owner of the Napanee location but we have not received a call-back. contained some provisions that are not consistent with Ontario labour standards," He added, "There are parts of the memo that we like in terms of rewarding employees for performance with meals and time off, however, we wanted to make sure that our franchisees comply with provincial labour standards."
