Dollar General / fired for payroll edits

OH, United States Review updated:

I was recently fired from my job at Dollar General for payroll edits. I have noticed that there are a few of you out there that have been fired for this as well. I had very little training I was promoted to ASM very quickly, three months later our SM goes on FMLA, she doesn't return. Which left my 3rd key and myself to run this "trouble store" for almost ten months, with no compensation, no additional training, no bonuses, nothing. I then have my baby, I was replace by two males, so I filed a FEEOC claim. Four months later I was promoted to SMC, THE VERY NEXT DAY, I was promoted to SM..back to running the store how I had been trained. Hence doing payroll how I was showed...My ASM was also fired for payroll edits...we did not know we were violating a policy. I have worked for the company for three years, and have always done payroll this way, We went through like four DM's, nobody ever told us, what we were doing was wrong. Until this past December, My ASM and myself made associates clock in and out properly and our new DM told us to document edits, she said if employees don't clock in and out right they need wrote up, I said ok. So I corrected what I was doing wrong via "payroll edits", and did what my DM said, still she never spoke it was a violation. But anyways, we fixed the problem for five weeks, and then terminated for it. I think Dollar General retaliated against my store for my FEEOC and the class action, concerning overtime pay for managers. I think when you sign up for claim(s), they use payroll edits to fire you on, they do not explain the importance of payroll edits, they let it red flag for years, and then when you sign your name to a dotted line, they clean out your whole store, because the whole store is your witness. If you were fired for this as well, contact me, they will not get away with doing this to us, they will pull all 8400+ stores payroll, and show me who all is red flagging right now, and still working, this is a problem, they won't get away with it!! I have contacted some of you, for all you others, please contact me, if we all get together it only makes us stronger. They didn't train us right, and for it, we get fired. I was 6 out of 15 in sales, 3 out of 15 for shrink (improved it by 68k), positive comp. My old DM said that my store was #2 on appearance in the district. We got outstandings on our SVS's almost every month, my store was one of the first stores to be model certified in our district. I received certificates for 2009 lowest expense to plan percent, most improved store, Accident Free, I was in the thousand dollar range for EBITA. So why was I fired, I was never even wrote up, at all..not even once during my employment with Dollar General.

    Hello, i wasnt fired for payroll edits, but i had a dm who wanted to get rid of me after a stay in the hospital. she told another store manager that she was going to find a way to get rid of me. and she did. i honored a sale price. she got me disqualified from unemployment saying she had talked to me about the situation and had warned me not to do the transaction and i never even told her about the transaction or when it was done. it flagged on emt because it was a large order. my problem is no training and no guidance. could you write me a letter stating about your complaints with no guidance no time to sat and read sop cause of cutting hours. [protected]@embarqmail.com. the store manager that kept me informed still works for her and dont want her name involved. i also signed the lawsuit paperwork but it was after i was terminated. dollar general is full of vindictive dm and others who eventually are going to get shoved out anyways even if they follow policy and procedures. thanks jane

    Amazing? I was a DG manager for over 6 years. I have been doing payroll the exact same way the entire time. I filed a complaint with the EEOC as well and guess what? Yep I was fired for payroll edits within 3 days of DG receiving my EEOC complaint. Furthermore, I had video's in my store and could prove that the payroll edits were valid edits. Guess what again?? they fired me and erased the video... Go figure. I have filed a lawsuit in Michigan, if I win I am sure it will give presedence in your state. If you would like to send me a statement so that my chances would improve in court please do, Just be honest, I know I have always been but with DG most of the time, truth really doesn't matter...

    I worked for dollar general, and they fired me last week, for takeing a break and looking at an old magazine.I was fired the next day, not only did i have a 45 minute drive there but they let me drive there, clock in and then fire me. Dollar General is crap and they do treat there management like ###. I dont think its right but i do believe they did me a favor, that place is a headache. It makes you sick to your stomache.
