Looking for a Lawyer to Sue Wal-Mart #8, Wal-Mart is Suing Me

I have recently been convicted of petite theft for items I admittedly stole from wal-mart. My reasoning is unimportant, but I admit I was in the wrong. I went to criminal court and was fined 6 months probation, 30 hours of community service, I had to take a class and pay $305 dollars is fines and restitution.

Then 2 days ago I, I received a letter form a law firm representing wal-mart, stating that I had to pay them $475 in 10 days or I will be taken to trial. The Statute they quote is Section 772.11 of Florida Law. I researched this and found that it is a legitimate Statute, however, it states that they can sue for no more than 3 times the amount taken, I stole $70 worth of merchandise, times three is only $210.

If i didn't have the money to pay for $70 worth of items, how can I pay $475.

I need help and fast,

Looking for a Lawyer to Sue Wal-Mart #7, Working Off The Clock---Willful Violation of Law

Lawyers in Virginia please contact
ChristinesHeart (at) aol (dot) com

In the seven years I worked for Walmart #1841 in Chesapeake, Virginia I have heard assistants, co’s and store manager tell people they couldn’t have a break or go to lunch, unless they finished certain things, if they didn’t get it done on time then it was just to bad for them.

It’s easy enough to fix the time adjustments in the system so Walmart won’t be fined for allowing late lunches and they do it all the time.

Associates work thru their lunch or past the state law guide line hours because they were asked to complete certain things, then management or personal will just go in the system and make it look like the lunch was taken or taken on time, which ever the case needs to be.......most cases have written time adjustment backup signed by you, to cover them also, but there are also plenty of adjustments that are made up by management or personal, just keyed in.

Truck unloaders were told they had to forfeit their break because they didn’t get a truck done fast enough. They were also told they couldn’t go to lunch until they got X amount of trucks unloaded.

Department Managers and associates have been told they couldn’t leave until they got everything done on a list that management handed them about an hour before it’s time to go home.Assistants have been told the same thing, yes I know they are on salary but that doesn’t mean they are to be used for 70 hours a week.

I have been told by my assistant that he is to protect people working off the clock (which is called will full violation) and he was told by a Co-Manager to do so.I can name several people who have been threatened for their DM status or job that they keep working after they punch out because they know the work has to be done or they won’t have a job.

Don’t give me the bull crap Walmart doesn’t allow it, they allow, in fact they encourage it and turn a blind eye to those who hands for need to hire more help, we have them so scared for their job they are willing to do it for free.

They will let you do it, until they want to get rid of you, then they will use it against you, just like they allow breaking of other policies and laws, until it’s your turn to hit the road....then they turn it around and use it against you.

That’s the bottom line.

It is documented from 2005, yet nothing ever done about it, but coverup.

Any lawyers wanting to file this suit, please contact me.

Looking for a Lawyer to Sue Wal-Mart #6, "Very Crude and Unnecessary Comments About My Mother"

LAWYERS in Dixon, Illinois
please contact Sarah at:
MaskScarah (at) aol (dot) com

Hello my name is Sarah Farmer, I feel I have a story for you. We live in Dixon, Illinois.

On July 3, 2007 my mother and I went to Wal-Mart to do a money transfer (like a western union) we were sending $550.00 to my brother in NJ. I was standing next to my mother at the counter while she was filling out the form for the transfer. After finishing the form my mother put 6 $100.00 bills on the counter. The total came to $585.34.

During the transaction the Sales clerk was helping 4 people while helping us. She kept picking up the money and then putting it down and then back on the counter in the interim the clerk had set the money down under the phone cord. Then handed the phone to the clerk next to her.

I then noticed that the money was about to fall off the counter so I reached over to stop it from falling off the counter. I then counted it to make sure it was all there. I was about to set the money back on the counter, but my mother took it out of my hand. The clerk handed her the change she then signed the receipt and then she placed the 6 $100.00 bills on the counter in front of the clerk and to my knowledge and my mothers the clerk had taken it and put it in the drawer.

My mother had another transaction. She needed a money order. She gave her another one hundred dollar bill. My mother was filling out the money order and the clerk looked at her and said " YOU NEED TO MOVE I NEED TO HELP OTHER CUSTOMERS!!" my mother who was not in the way looked up and said "Well excuse me, but what am I?" The clerk then proceeded to swipe all of my mothers papers over into a pile on the other end of the counter. My mother a little ticked off at how this Clerk was working picked up all her things put them in her purse and my mother and I left.

The next day my father had received a call from the Dixon police department. Wal-Mart had filed a complaint for theft. They were stating my mother had taken the money.

My father then called my mother at work and told her what was going on. She said that she didn't know what he was talking about. But would check her purse.

After checking the paperwork, she found the money mixed in with all the receipts. She told him to call the police and tell them she was on her way down. She then left work and came to get me. We both went down to the police department to return the money, but we were told that the police officer handling the case wasn't there, to come back tomorrow. We returned on July 5th and spoke to the officer.

The officer first brought me upstairs and read me my rights and told me I was being charged with a class 3 felony for theft of over 300 dollars. He then went down to get my mother. She then asked them why are we being arrested. We didn't do anything wrong. He said she took the money. My mother replied "I didn't know I had the money."

The police officer said he had the surveillance tape showing her putting the money in her purse. My mother denied this. After finishing all the paperwork he told us we were going over to talk to the judge and leave. That it looks like a mistake on the clerks part. But instead, he brought us to the Lee County Sheriffs Department. Where they continued to book us and put us in jail. We were incarcerated for over 8 hours. No food or water, nothing. We were strip searched and put in black and white striped suits.

The sheriffs department made very crude and unnecessary comments about my mother and I.

Like “Did I guess her bra size right??“ “Right on the dot! Replied the other officer. “WhooHoo!! WhooHoo!!” This comment was made in front of my mother while they were putting the striped suit on me.

After talking to my father around 4:00pm the police officer came out and told us that he had never seen this before that we were going to speak to the judge. This officer took us through the jail and put a belt around our waist and cuffed us. We were walked through a parade of rooms and then we were handed off to another Police officer. This officer then took us out the front door of the court house and down the street in front of god and everyone back to the county jail.

We were put back in the jail cell. After some time we then were released on our own recognizance. After all this, we then lost our jobs, our house. EVERYTHING including our dignity.

This went on for almost 3 months.

All because Wal-Mart had an incompetent clerk who doesn't know her job and we were the fall guys. Through previously working there, I know the procedure and protocol for dealing with transactions with large sums on money. The sales clerk did not follow any of that. They had the surveillance tape and told us that I picked up the money thumbed through it handed it to my mother and she thumbed through it and then put it in her purse. After about a month and a half we finally received a copy of the police report and the probable cause affidavit. These reports were filed by the arresting officer.

These reports were filled with lies. And no one has seen the tape showing this crime. The only one that had seen the tape were the Wal-Mart managers and the police officer.

2 months of waiting we finally saw the tape. We were the first to see it and it showed my mother placing the money back on the counter. Proving that the police officer had lied.

We went to court 3 times before the charges were dismissed on September 27, 2007. The State Attorney stated it was a mistake.

So far all we have heard is that if you go to Wal-Mart and the clerk makes a mistake you are responsible for it. Please, if there is any lawyer that is interested in helping us file a civil suit against Wal-Mart and all involved please contact me at MaskScarah (at) aol (dot) com . There is so much more to the story that we have left out to shorten it.

DON'T SHOP AT WALMART your responsible for their mistakes!

Wal-Mart Ripping off American Taxpayers

Wal-Mart's failure to provide healthcare to their employees is costing American taxpayers over 1.5 billion dollars every year and leaves an estimated 46% of the children of Wal-Mart employees on publicly-funded healthcare programs.

You get cheap goods, but you pay in countless other ways.

Wal-Mart Bullies Disabled Greeters

I have just hired into Wal-mart as a greeter myself sadly and just asking to have a stool to get off my feet for a few minutes seems to be a deadly sin to them.

Let me start at the beginning. About seven years ago I had a series of accidents that left me partially disabled. Since then I cannot walk without the aid of a cane, continue to have problems standing for long periods and, weakness/pain on the right side of my body.

First I applied to a variety of departments including gardening, electronic, cashier, etc. After the standard interview process one of the assistant managers had approved the job offer for a sales associate in the electronics department because I had worked at a Best Buy beforehand (which I left for only getting scheduled for 4 hrs total in a week by the end, but at least I could get off my feet when needed).

Just before clicking on the computer to accept the job offer and get my drug test packet I requested the American with Disability act sheet so I could get reasonable accommodation for my condition. After a whole mess of them not knowing where the form is and me trying to find an appointment to get it filled out I was finally called back by Wal-Mart.

They explained that they were now only able to offer me the people greeter position for considerably less money than I was offered for in the electronics dept. Angry, but desperate for cash, I took the job.

On my ADA form it exclaims that I NEED to get off my feet every 2 hours for a break and within my first 4 days on the floor 3 of the days I was forgotten for 30min to a hour at a time come break time, it has since gotten better but ONLY if I yell at them on the radio for someone to remember to give it to me (did not even have a radio until I kept complaining). I was in so much pain that I had to call a family member to drive me home. A few days later I receive the second ADA form that I sent to my surgeon.

On this form he wants me to have sit down work, use of a wheelchair, and a short moving break every hour. Now I do not really need the wheelchair unless I plan on covering a large area all day (state fair, amusement park, etc) but I DO need to be able to get off my feet often.

I was told that Wal-Mart will submit the form but was "unlikely to be able to accommodate me" by the cashier manager and personnel manager. What part of people greeter cannot be accomplished by having a stool there that I can sit on when I am hurting to the point that I can barely move? What part of me sitting had anything to do with causing significant difficulties for the company? I EVEN HAVE MY OWN STOOL!!

I have begged them to put me somewhere more comfortable but they explain how there is no such place and even reminded them that I have seen cashiers there on stools. According to them that is for "pregnant and recent surgery" employees. Even just being able to lean forward on the register was better.

But the worst part of all is today I was sent to be a greeter at the lawn and garden door and for the whole hour and a half there were less than 10 customers and EVERY second there was not someone checking out the cashier was sitting down on the register. With all the cameras and managers doing nothing but cruising the store with clipboards you cannot tell me that they did not know that they were sitting and if a perfectly able person is able why in the world would they not be able to offer me a job at the same place......and the cashier girl so nicely explained that the garden center cashier spot was year round and that she was moving to bakery next week.

I am not the only one having problems at this store and probably many other stores.

There is an older woman that requires a cart just to walk back to the time clock and all of them are constantly forgotten about on breaks. It was only after I came and complained about not having radios at the door that we got one to be able to yell at the CSM's to give breaks on time.

Walmart continues to bully and intimidate its mostly disabled greeters so they dont complain and let the company walk all over them. There IS a video about ADA AFTER you are hired that explains that you have the right to a form but little else. But, during the hiring process only a few small sentences ever mention it and when someone like me that actually reads and requests it the management has NO CLUE what it is or where it can be found until they call you into the store 3 times to finally get it placed in my hands, then have to wait nearly a week to see if its accepted to even get the job.

I am stuck at this point. I do not have a desire to quit so soon since I have quit so many other places before hand and finding a now job where I live is a near impossibility (employers see a cane it is like I have a communicable disease).

But at the current rate I will not last long with the extreme amount of pain I am feeling standing still on bare concrete for 8hrs a day. So any suggestions or help would be appreciated.Though they will no doubt be able to figure out who is writing this message and will retaliate against me despite my rights and their own policies

I have choosen to make a fake email address and at this time do not wish to identify myself. I would like to keep a job at least until i can find a good job that does not treat its employees like trash and criminals.
