I have worked for Sam's club in NC for 13 years. I was one of the highest paid associates in the club and reminded of that often by management.
I had been out of work for a week, the first part of November. When I returned I informed my manager that I was going to need surgery , she asked when and reminded me that this was the worst possible time of year for me to be out.
I was informed by doctors that surgery need to be scheduled fast. DEC 12 was the date and would have an eight week recovery. Management was not happy.
I was terminated November 28,2007 for falsifying company documents!! (one week after giving my surgury date)
The company documents were time adjustments for missed lunches.
I was told the times I put on my adjustments didn't match the video tapes.
I know for a fact others guess at the time or put their lunch wrong to stay within company guide lines of taking a lunch after 6 hours!
One time adjustment was done to stay under 40 hours , at the request of my manager because she would get in trouble for having overtime.
I just think its unfair to pick and choose who's time adjustments they allow and who's they don't.
I was 13 year associate making more then some management. they wanted me gone
