Brueggers Bagel Bakery Complaint - Not Fair
MCMURRY, PENNSYLVANIA -- Recently I was terminated from Bruegger's because of my association with another employee. Apparently in my position as a supervisor, it is against company policy to have any dealings or friendships of any kind with employees beneath you. That was the reason they gave me for my termination, but I know there was more behind it than that. There is another supervisor there who is best friends with some of employees that work there, but they are not doing an investigation into that. Alot of the things that were going on had absolutely nothing to do with me. Food costs were high, because alot of the employees would give alot away to their friends. But they would always think it was me. The first person you suspect is the "Black One". Being the only African- American one working there I felt like I was more scrutinized than anyone else. The asst. manager went into the register to see what I rang up for someone I knew, but not for anyone else. They were going out of their ways to find every little thing I did wrong, as grounds for termination. They are prejudice. The asst. manager, gen. manager, and a supervisor were all conspiring to have me fired. My thing is, if they are going to fire me for that, fire him. Also the other supervisor who is friends with alot of her co-workers. But they aren't because they love her. But she is breaking company policy, so the same should happen to her. I did somewhat enjoy that job, except for feeling a bit singled out. I wasn't given a warning. It's upsetting It happened this way, but I would also like to seek further action. I feel I was wrongfully terminated, and that the other employees should receive the same for what they did.
