Local server who was fired from Outback Steakhouse has message for those who order takeout

Local server who was fired from Outback Steakhouse has message for those who order takeout

The local server who says she was stiffed on a $700 takeout order by a church has now received the tip she’s been waiting for.

“They ended up tipping me more than 20 percent," Tamalyn Yoder. "They’ve been wonderful and understanding about the whole situation."

After receiving no tip at all on a more than $700 pickup order for Christ Fellowship church in Palm Beach Gardens, Tamalyn Yoder said she’d had enough.

She took to social media to complain.

“A lot of people think that we’re not doing as much work because we’re not coming to the table 10 times, but we’re making sure that you don’t have to get up from your couch through your dinner,” Yoder said.

After Yoder posted on Facebook, Outback fired her.

Outback released this statement in response:

We respect all customers’ decision about tips. Our policy has always prohibited employees from questioning a tip decision. All of our employees, including Ms. Yoder, also know that posting a comment about our customers on social media violates that policy and results in termination.

Yoder said she was aware of the social media policy.

“I knew that you were not allowed to slander their name. You were not allowed to post about Outback. And I didn’t at all once state that it was from Outback,” she said.

The church, which Yoder herself attends, wants to make sure she has a future in the restaurant industry.

“They’ve given me a list of places that are hiring that I can go apply to,” she said.

Outback told CBS12 it reimbursed the church for their full order.
