Dollar General Corporation Complaint - TO MR CAL TURNER
HUBER HEIGHTS, OHIO -- I have worked for Dollar General in Fairborn, Ohio as a store manager since August 1999. On April 14, 2001 I was injuried on the job while unloading a truck. I injuried my back and rushed by medic's from the store to the hospital. The doctor put me on limited duites until May 4, 2001. Four days before I was to go back to the doctor for a re-check, my DM at the time, Judy Noble, threatened me. She told me workers comp or no workers comp she was going to pull me out of my store and demote me. On May 4, 2001 when I returned to the doctor, he 'blew up' at what the DM said and he did not release me he took me off work until May 18, 2001. I showed the paper to Judy Noble and she said no way am I going to be out that long on workers comp. She told me if I am she'd fire me. So I continued to work in servere pain. Then on May 13, 2001 I open and closed the store as normal. On May 14, 2001 I got a call from the bank we bank at and they told me that a deposit from the night before was $730.00 short. I stated that's funny I had TWO WITTINESSES that saw me court the money, put it in the bank bag, seal the bank bag and they followed me to the bank. I notified my DM and the companies cash audit. Well, today, May 18, 2001 I was discharged for taking the money. Dollar General blames me for the missing money. About 2 years ago the samething happened and the manager at the time WAS NOT FIRED, she was given a lie detector test. I was wrongfully discharged without (Judy Noble got her wish. She wanted me fired anyway) an investigation by Dollar General and Dollar General would not abide by the worker comp laws. If you like to talk to me I can be reached at this email address and or can be reached at (927) 667-2916.
Mr. Stephen John Duell
To help keep me as a potential future customer, I would like the following:
I want a full investigation including the bank tellers, reinstated in the same postion with no loss to back pay and benefits and I want my store back.
At the very least I would like a response from your company regarding this incident.
