Suzanne and Food:
I think ya all misunderstood what I was saying. Let me elaberate:
She spread some rumors... she talked to everyone in the kitchen, the kitchen crew tells me everything. I ignore it. Kitchen drama... as always. She told more rumors.... said she strengthened my marriage with my wife. Sorry.... that is crap. How would YOU feel if a cook said that??
Anyway, two of my employees told me when I got in, instead of confronting her, I talked with HR. HR talked with her, she got pissed, blew up, blamed other cooks, put her two weeks in, said she was not leaving without a fight. Meaning she is not leaving quitly. On Saturday, I talked with my sous and he said she was chatting with everyone... spreading more rumors.
I plan to talk with my GM tomorrow and see what he says. Cutting her loose would be just fine. If he does not agree, than yes, my sous and I will be watchign her closely to make sure she has no face time with anyone. How is that crappy leadership? That is protecting my assests... no???
I do not put much faith in gossip or rumors. I try to limit rumors in the kitchen. You can not stop them....
if ya all have any recomendation on how to stop it... I am listening.
