Captain Caveman Heaven

Posted on Thu, Oct 27, 2011 at 10:04 AM

I worked there for 5 years never refused a shift, kept flexible with my schedule worked from the time I walked through the door until I left, I recently had an agreement to sell jewelry for 10% of the retail which equals 20-25% 0f my profit recently she sent me this "If you wish to continue using my display case, I am asking for rent of 100.00 a month and continued 10%." Needless to say I refused based on my sales $250-300 a month this would leave her with $125 a month and after my cost me $50 a month, I left a note saying Sunday was the only day I could sell my jewelry (which I have a sizable investment) so I would be unable to work Sundays as a result, Captain Caveman called me into the store two days later and handed me a letter stating "On Oct. 16, you had indicated to me in writing that you will no longer work your regularly scheduled shifts. I accept this as your resignation. Enclosed is your last pay check which encompasses all hours worked in the last pay period and any shifts you were scheduled for this week." She refused to speak about it demanded her key and stated you do not tell me how to run my business and slammed the door. Now that is a BITCH! I didn't receive 2 weeks pay and as it stands I am ineligible to collect E.I. —5 Rings
