I want to transfer to another restaurant in the company but manager will lie?
I work in the restaurant industry for the OSI, they own Outback, Carrabbas, Cheeseburger Paradise, Flemings, and Bonefish. I currently work at Carrabbas and have worked there a little under a year 5 days a week. I would say I am one of the most experienced servers there, having worked both for the Pappas company and Kona Grill for a total of 5 years waiting tables. I am good at what I do. I do not make enough money at Carrabbas, and Bonefish is much closer to my house, anyway. I want to transfer to the better restaurant. I mentioned this to some people who have worked at Carrabbas longer than myself, and they have said that regardless of circumstance, our manager will NOT let people transfer within the company. For example, a former employee walked out and went to cheeseburger paradise, filled out an application without mentioning he had worked within the company (proprietors apparently call each other if you fill out the 'have you worked for an osi company before' box). Anyway, he was hired, and worked there for a couple weeks before my manager found out where he was. The manager then called Cheeseburger's manager and told him that the former employee had stolen alcohol from Carrabbas. He was fired. I know that the manager at Bonefish would love to have a server like myself on staff, and I know I have the experience to be hired easily. My concern is that this manager will call and lie about me or tell them not to hire me. What can I do to stop this, and is there anything I can legally do or threaten to do so I can get a job where I am happier? Please help!

If the manager calls and makes a lie about you so they wont hire you, that's not right. .If you are that qualified for the job they should let you in. You could talk to your manager personally and say hey, "hey, i would like to leave here and go to... More

what a pity. the least that you could do is ask for a lawyer and sue your manager. he has no right to detain an employee out of the latter's free will
