Dollar General — vacation pay owed to me
To whom this may concern which I hope the CEO of Dollar General read this plus the upper managerment in HR and Payroll---my name is Carolyn Kime and I was dimissed/terminated or fired how ever you want to call it on March 19, 2010 and my employee ID # was 901605. In the meeting with the DM-Joel---he assured me that I would get my 80 hours vacation that I had earn from the company and that he would submit the paper work in---now here is what I'm very disappointed with Dollar General---if you are going to terminated a person from your company--you should tell the person that their vacation time that they worked hard for will not be paid to them which I think that is so wrong for a company to do. I earned that time--I worked very hard for that time and I never quit Dollar General--they quit on me. Dollar General was my home for 3 years while I started out as a cashier and in 3months was 3rd key and 18 months later was ASM. I enjoyed my job and everything that was asked of me plus more.
I always thought Dollar General cared for their employees--not the ones that stole from them or the ones that was dishonest with the company which I'm not either one but I guess I was wrong even now with these tough times. I was really counting on my vacation pay till I can get another job. I did make an error but I thought Dollar General would had put me somewhere else with the company like on the truck teams or store set ups--to me that won't had matter at least I would had stayed with the company. In the hand book I never came across the policy when you terminateda SM or ASM that they would not get paid for their vacation time they had---my question is where was it stated on this affect?
I hope someone can clear all this up for me cause I sure could use that money right now--my phone number is [protected].
You all might what to think about telling new DM's not to assure any SM and ASM when they terminate them from your company that they will recieve their vacation time that they had with your company. This whole mess caused me alot of grief and depression and I really don't think you as a company really know what harm this cause to me or other past employees on this matter.
Again, hope to get some honest answer from some one
