Pizza Hut said its "local franchise operator has addressed this situation with the manager involved." "We absolutely do not have a policy that dictates when team members can leave or return from a disaster, and the manager who posted this letter did not follow company guidelines," the company said in a statement. The company added that all stores in Irma's path had been shuttered and wouldn't reopen "until local authorities deem the area safe."Pizza Hut did not mention whether the manager was disciplined in any way.
