[Resolved] UniFirst / employee relations

United States Review updated:

I have a problem with a company that supposedly sends down write ups from corporate HR three weeks after the alleged incident without even speaking with the accused. Then HR refuses to address the issue with the employee in question. Instead, he is informed that HR will not contact him, or give him any information. Seems like a bit of a railroad job.
I would think that there should be some recourse or standard protocol for situations such as this.

    He did contact HR. They have never responded. He was told by the GM that they would not be contacting him and should let the matter drop. In the meantime, he is conveniently ineligible for a different position, because of this write up.

    I understand that companies have policies and rules. However, when there are changes made, a copy should be issued to all employees with a sheet acknowledging that they are aware of the changes. Additionally, certain changes need to be accompanied with the proper signage. Especially when it could be career ending.

    My wife worked in the product area. Her new gm carlos was hired, and would not leave her alone. Always coming in making unwanted comments and having her in his office with door closed. She was unhappy and made this known. He must have got afraid, and promoted her to the stockroom. Now the unwanted visits and comments have started back. He stays in her area all the time. Constantly flirting. Thought this was a family job. As her husband, i am tired of this. I want something done.

    Then why are you on here and not your wife? Why is your wife not doing something about it?
