Totally Off Topic~ Going to court and I'm nervous!
Send me good vibes girls~ I will be leaving soon to go to court. UGH!
Long story short.....we owned a business. We sold the business in Feb, and the new owners of the business decided not to keep all of "our" employees. Hubby issued final paychecks the day after the business was sold, and put them in the safe at the business for the employees to pick up. All of the employees had no problem coming in to get their paycheck, exept one. This particular employee (I will call her Sue) was mad that she wasn't re-hired by the new owners. A week after we sold the business, Sue sent her "boyfriend" into the new owners to get her paycheck, because she didn't want to face them. New owners called hubby, and hubby suggested against giving her paycheck to the "boyfriend", stated to only give it to Sue. So a week later, the boyfriend comes in again, and a different employee gives the paycheck to him.
Now Sue is suing us for "withholding" her paycheck for 13 days! Are you kidding me? Her paycheck ready and waiting for HER. California Labor Laws even state if the "employee absents himself/herself to avoid payment" is "not entitled to any benifit". GRRRRR~!
Wish us luck!
Paws.....and reflect on what life has given you~
