Premier Toyota / bad employer

I was employed at Premier Toyota of Amherst Ohio Feb 06-Aug 06 after. The dealership didn't open till May of that year but I was there before opening with a select few new employees to get it ready for opening. I worked there for over 24 weeks before I found out I was pregnant and it was high risk. I was put on maternity leave by my doctor with a note of possible misscarriage if I didn't get off my feet. The owner was not happy at all siting that I was already a risky hire... this said since I had made him aware at hiring the only reason I had a lapse in employment before employment with Premier Toyota was because I took a year off for cancer surgery and chemo. I'm very honest. Anyway when I was allowed by my physician to return to work I gave a doctors release to Premier Toyota and they had me come in but only offered me a car sales position... this to a graphic designer and former business development manager. Whatever happened to the promise of a comparable position like the EEOC promised. The EEOC investigated and Premier Toyota told them I never came back for my job??? So they dropped there investigation at that. I have the meeting on tape too and the EEOC never asked for my evidence... the EEOC is my next complaint on this site what a joke they aren't looking out for the little guy. Then I went to get unemployment and couldn't becuase it turned out even though I have 24 weeks of paystubs... BOB FISHER the owner didn't start paying in to unemployment but 15 of those weeks. Screw the little guy. And he speaks of being there for the community. SO I had a newborn no job no income and had to go on welfare till I could get back in the workforce. Lost my car. He also kept my last bonus and never paid me the agreed salary he promised in his initial hire email to me. Always an excuse. I guess it goes to show you can't trust a car salesman... yes the owner was just a car salesman before.

I hate Premier Toyota and feel a little acid come up in my mouth everytime I see his commercial with his fake promises and cheerful demeanor knowing what an ### he truly is and what a lie he truly represents.

All statements in this are fact by me and I welcome anyone who wants to challenge them including the legal counsel of Premier Toyota. I save my letters from the doctor, the letter from Premier to go to the meeting about returning to work and I recorded the actual meeting. I might not can afford an attorney to sue them for loss of wages and blatantly discriminating against a pregnant woman but Most certainly will make my experience known to everyone I encounter!

    Attorneys would take a claim like yours on a contingency basis. The only way they would not is if your case has no merit. Auto dealers are generally easy pickins in the court system. Have you even talk to an attorney? I hope your pregnancy went well. The best thing to do is suck it up and get on with your life and quit feeling sorry for yourself.

    Good luck.

    They made promises to me as well, which were never kept. Bob Fisher (Robert L. Fisher) responded to my concerns, but not until after I had already quit. They kept expecting me to do more and more, to spend extra hours of my day working to bring in money for them. Yet when it came time to compensate me for this additional time and effort, no additional money was put on the table.

    Furthermore, Bob felt it necessary to pass judgment and make personal attacks in a misguided effort to assert his authority. The kicker was when Mr. Fisher stated that my leaving had been recorded as "job abandonment, " clearly to spite me and defame my character as I continue to search for viable opportunities to better myself and my career.

    Simply put, Premier's owner is a snake. There is no shortage of dealerships in the area to do business with, and I encourage you to reconsider buying or servicing a vehicle at Premier Toyota of Amherst.

    It is because of Premier Toyota that I no longer purchase Toyota's! I purchased six of them from a very reputable dealer in the Cleveland area and took the last one to Premier for servicing only to be told I needed a rack an pinion at a cost of $1200.00. I told them to drop the car from the lift and took it to the dealer I bought it from. Their diagnosis of the problem was not the rack and pinion but a steering shaft that had several Toyota service bulletins assigned to it. After writing Toyota Motor Corp. and sending them documented proof of Premier's dishonest tactics I received a generic letter acknowledging they received my complaint. I took that as a way of saying they didn't want my business anymore and purchased a Ford Fusion. Every time I drive it I sing " I love what you did for me Toyota"!
