Chipotle is taking every precaution to keep customers from getting sick. After a pretty lousy end of the year, leaving tons of people sick, the fast-casual chain has now added a new perk for employees. If you’re sick you can stay home and still get paid, Consumerist reports.
The Mexican Grill announced earlier that they would hold a nationwide meeting on Feb. 8 that will close down every restaurant for a few hours. There, many topics of food safety would be addressed. It seems paid sick leave with be one of those topics.
Now, employees won’t have to worry about losing money if they ever catch something. Rather, they can take some time to recover and still be compensated.
Obviously the chain will implement some kind of systems so folks don’t take advantage of it, but it seems like a step in the right direction.
