A new company is offering to fire employees who fail to meet certain requirements.
The Irish Times understands the company, Starbucks, is in the process of creating a program that would help them comply with human resources legislation.
It is part of a broader trend, and it is a bit surprising to hear it coming from a major corporation.
It would be the latest in a long line of Starbucks moves to make sure employees follow their workplace regulations, which include providing a range of benefits.
Last month, the coffee chain issued an apology to customers after a worker complained that she was not paid the minimum wage.
The company said the employee was fired because she had not paid a salary or the basic minimum wage of €10.50 per hour.
The employee was paid €10 per hour and was entitled to receive €20 of additional compensation, but she did not receive that amount.
Starbucks said in a statement that the worker’s complaints are being investigated and that Starbucks is committed to working with the human resources department to ensure employees are paid the fair and equal rates of pay in Ireland.
The business said that the employee has been offered a full refund of her wages.
