A sporting goods store employee, who last month helped catch a suspect allegedly trying to swipe a weapon, was suspended and later lost his job at the Florida business following the incident, his lawyer said.

Dean Crouch, 32, was working at the Academy Sports store in Tallahassee on June 29 when robbery suspect Jason White allegedly tried to steal a gun, the Tallahassee Democrat reported.

After White reportedly tried to flee with the stolen firearm he’d requested to see, Crouch stepped in and ultimately detained him.

That's called being an "At Will Employee".

QUOTE
At-will means that an employer can terminate an employee at any time for any reason, except an illegal one, or for no reason without incurring legal liability. Likewise, an employee is free to leave a job at any time for any or no reason with no adverse legal consequences.


The gentleman in the above article was terminated for touching a customer, which is in violation of company policy. In my opinion, once a "customer" tries to steal from the company, he has evolved into a "criminal" and that policy is no longer valid!

How else was he to stop the crim, walk along side and say "Excuse me can you stop." This is ridiculous. He should sue for unfair dismissal.

Does the company policy state what their employees can and cannot do when confronted with a "crime" in their store? If not perhaps that should be something that needs to be considered. I wonder if he would have been fired had he let this guy steal?
