Outback Steakhouse Waitress Fired For Complaining

Outback server given no tip on church's $735 order fired over Facebook post

But when Yoder showed up for work the next day, she was sacked.

Yoder plans to stream Facebook Live segments, asking her friends and followers to share their non-tipping stories and experiences. 'It's a considerable measure of work the same amount of as serving'. Server Tamlynn Yoder, 25, spent most of her shift getting it packaged, making sure it was correct and then carrying it out to the vehicle.

Yoder told the Miami Herald that a person from Christ Fellowship came to pick up the order, and when she put the food in the vehicle, she received no tip. In a since-deleted post, Yoder vented on how she only received $18 in tips that day from other orders because she was so busy preparing the mega churchs order.

Yoder said she spent most of her shift on Wednesday putting together the 75-item order for Christ Fellowship at the Outback where she worked in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida.

A friend read her post and called the church to complain and was told that the person who picked up the food didn't know to leave a tip.

Christ Fellowship said their policy is to tip on carry-out orders, but that their volunteer wasn't aware of that.

One story on the Sundays Are the Worst campaign stated, "I hate waiting Tables on sunday as a christian myself it stinks because I dont get to go to church but then you have crowds of people who flood your restraunt after just loving the Lord a lot of them are the rudest people we have all week and look at you like a heathen because you are at work".

The lowest pay permitted by law for tipped workers in Florida is $5.23 60 minutes.

Cathie Koch, a spokeswoman for Outback Steakhouse, told The Palm Beach Post that, per company policy, employees cannot post about customers on social media and can be subject to termination if the policy is violated.

On Monday, the church compensated Yoder over the incident that cost the waitress her job.

"Thank you all very much for expressing your concerns", the church said in a statement on Facebook. "I want them to realize what it's like as a server in this industry because we do work hard". Handing you an order to go isn't service, it's just a purchase.

He also stated that church members usually give generous tips, as many of them work as servers. "We are reaching out directly to the people affected".

"We did not call the restaurant to have her fired, we wanted to get the situation resolved", David Lonsberry, an executive director of business for Christ Fellowship said.

Reflecting on her firing, Yoder insisted that she did the right thing by speaking out.
