   Hard to comment without all the facts from both sides. All I can say for sure is if someone left where I work to go give someone $20, chances are pretty good they would get terminated. They could do it on their own time, meal break or something, but not when they are supposed to be at work.

agree mixed emotions about that one. Kind of like the stories that are titled, Veteran fired for "fill in the blank" if they violated company policy the fact they are a veteran is irrelevant  

 

It did say she got permission from her supervisor. The old plant manager in me says, if anybody would be in trouble it would be the manager, if she told them why she was leaving

I understand both sides here from what information is presented.

 

Banks have rules, and policies, these are risk management tools, to limit their liability, as well as policies to be followed to recoup losses, say, through insurance. Simple lapses in judgment like this can cost a company well beyond mere dollars and cents. 

 

At the same time, sometimes crafted policies can be crafted by people who have virtually no idea what's actually going on, being so affixed by data instruments and rules, they demonstrate palpable disconnect from sociocultural elements, whether organizationally, or regionally. When an incident occurs that runs afoul of this, too often I see that the rule makes no sense, and gives no room for people to just be people. We are human and compassionate.

 

So, I think an overly harsh reaction can similarly be a warning sign to people looking for good organizational culture, and tbh finance is known for being ruthless organizationally.

  It suggests the supervisor got fired too. Many other factors to look at. Was she a model employee or was she already in trouble for other things? This could have been the tipping point. I don't like how they loaded the title to make it look like she got fired because of an act of kindness.
