Gull Oil forces operator to sell his franchise after outcry over treatment of his employees..

What goes around, comes around.  Karma has returned to bite him on the backside. Franchise owner has been forced to sell by Gull Oil: 

Masterton Night ’n Day and Gull operator Nick Lucas is selling the franchise after an outcry over revelations that he docked employees’ wages when customers drove-off without paying

Nick Lucas confirmed he was selling the Masterton Night ‘n Day convenience store franchise, which also operates the town’s Gull petrol station, after a public backlash that followed revelations that he docked employees’ wages when customers stole fuel.

“I am going to sell . . . I’ve got a guy who’s going to buy,” he said. The sale would be finalised “in a matter of days”.

Masterton employment lawyer Jills Angus Burney said she had received information that Lucas had been forced to sell by Gull and Night ‘n Day after boycott calls.

“He has been required to relinquish his franchise because the parties to the franchise are unhappy with the financial impact of the publicity around the illegal deductions.”

She said Lucas’s employees were worried the new franchisee would put them on a 90-day trial, meaning they could be sacked at any time.
