About two weeks after she was fired, police charged her with the theft of two cups of Coke valued at $4. She will appear in Dunedin District Court this month.
Security video footage of the incident shows Lang sharing the drink with her friend, then refilling the cup and leaving it on the table when she returned to work.
"Most people wouldn't be fired and put in a police cell for two hours for sharing a drink."
In a letter addressed to Lang, the directors said she had given the drink to a friend without payment and that was considered "serious misconduct" and a breach of their "trust and fidelity".
Fidelity? Way to go to destroy employee fidelity, Subway.
I am sure the $4 cup of soda impacted your business in New Zealand a lot. Couldn't the company just charge the $4 to the employee's account?
And when we need police action in so many more important cases, I appreciate the time and effort you asked the New Zealand police to put into this "investigation".
