DSU Incorporated / Does not pay employees
I began working as a temporary work contractor for DSU Incorporated on 2/7/2012. The client company I worked for was CitiMortgage in O'Fallon Missouri. My assignment @ CitiMortgage was terminated on 3/12/2012. While I was working there my agreed upon salary was $14.00 an hour.
DSU Incorporated owes me for the two final weeks I worked at CitiMortgage. I have made numerous attempts to contact Mr. Joesph Foster HR Manager [protected] ext 200) @ DSU in order to see when I will get my final pay for this assignment. Mr. Foster, and others at DSU have ignored my numerous inquiries regarding this much needed pay.
According to Department of Missouri Labor Department law (RSMo 290.110) I was supposed to have been paid my full wages for working @ CitiMortgage within 7 days of me notifying them of this matter. It has exceeded that time. The amount of the wages I am owed is easily verified by the client's timekeeping system and my bank's record of deposits from this company. I am proceeding to small claims court to recover this money. Also according to Missouri Law I will be back on DSU's payroll in a manner of speaking, if they do not pay me my back wages. The law says that DSU Incorporated will owe me one day's wages everyday up to 60 days if they do not pay me my back wages within 7 days. This little stunt of theirs is going to end up costing them way in excess of the actual wages they owe me. I may also ask for punitive and nominal damages as well.
This company is sleazy to the extreme - Juakeia Walden, Brandon Strickland and Joseph Foster are all keen operators who don't answer calls or emails when problems like this arise. This is particularly sad because this is a minority owned business attempting to screw over a minority. Do not deal with DSU Incorporated in North Carolina or if you do be prepared to lawyer up to get your wages. It is a company taking advantage of vulnerable people in a fragile economy.
