Default Why do some restaurants/bars not allow workers to eat there?

My friend was a bartender at a local restaurant/inn. When her shift ended, she had to count our her drawer and leave. She wasn't allowed to stay and have a drink with anyone. She wasn't allowed to eat there or patronize the bar on her days off.

They would feed her lunch (limited choices) while she was working but wasn't allowed there any other time.

Why do some of these places do that?

Life does not happen in a vacuum. Lifestyle changes must transcend habits and routines. - thanks midwife.

Weight loss isn't linear and the body doesn't have a timetable. - thanks Glory87.

I think I can. I think I can. I think I can. I think I can.

Because they are too cheap and think if their employee's stay for a drink or two even a meal that their co-workers will give them a discount or something along those lines. I've never actually encountered that but that's what I'm guessing anyways.

Some places in Indy do this, but it has nothing to do with being cheap, per my DH who has been working in the restaurant industry for almost 20 years.

If employee A stays after work and is being served by employee B, there's a good chance that there will be chatting and socializing. That leaves other customers unattended, and looks bad for the establishment.

TGI Fridays does this, or at least they used to. Before they put the policy in place, employees would come in on their days off or after shift, take up a large portion of the restaurant, get a discount on their food, get drinks not made to company standards, and generally be obnoxious.

Plus, in a lot of states, if a restaurant serves you too much alcohol and you drive drunk and get into an accident, the restaurant, manager, bartender and server can all be held liable.
