They wouldn't budge.
I pulled out the manual and also quoted it verbatim, that if what they claim happened actually did happened it wasn't in effect until after I had gotten hired. After I got fired they distributed the new policy. My wife still works there and isn't happy with the upper management for what they did to me.
Being treated like a criminal by the company that once said you were great, is complete and total
SO now I get some money for disability, and unemployment, but am looking for a better company to work for.
I got a call two days post-op from Home Depot looking for an interview. I told them about my surgery and asked to reschedule. The gal said I am on the list and that she will call in a couple weeks (we will see).
to that employer for being buttheads about the process. I can look elsewhere.....
