What passionate comments. Obviously, Safeway should have handled the situation differently. Employees should only be terminated for violations of their Employee Handbook. I doubt giving discounts for old coffee is a violation of their Code of Conduct.
If I ran the Safeway I would probably just have told the employees not to do whatever it is I did not want them doing. Ms. Hartman is correct, some notice to employees could have prevented bad feelings, lost business and possible litigation for Safeway.
