In one of the progress reports on “The Profit” he goes back to an earlier investment he took on - a burger joint named Standard Burger.
Wow, was that manager messed up…
But I’m not really asking about that, my question was that at one point he mentions how much nicer the parking lot looks, and the manager mentions that every employee is required to walk the lot and pick up trash BEFORE CLOCKING IN.
Isn’t that illegal? You can’t tell (or even ask, really) your employees to do off-the-clock work. I think the biggest exception to this is the security scans people have to go through at the Amazon.com warehouses, but that’s not really “work.” I am surprised Marcus, with all of his business knowledge, didn’t know that it was shady to do that.
The place is located in NYC, I believe, on Staten Island. Is requiring your employees to clean up the parking lot before clocking in legal?
