Chipotle Has Nurses Who Check If Employees Are Really Sick and Not Just Hungover
After several high profile and embarrassing instances, restaurant chain Chipotle has taken extra steps to make sure their employees are safe, while attempting to regain trust from customers. Insider says the company has nurses employed who check on sick employees.
So, if you're thinking of taking off cause you're hungover, think again. CEO Brian Niccol said on a conference call:
We have nurses on call, so that if you say, 'Hey, I've been sick,' you get the call into the nurse. The nurse validates that it's not a hangover — you're really sick — and then we pay for the day off to get healthy again.
Chipotle's vice president of food safety; Kerry Bridges said:
When an employee reports serious symptoms to their manager, the clinical nurse team at Zero Hour Health will follow up with those employees to understand their illness.
