Question to Ask the Workplace Doctors about never made to sign a W-4 or I-9 forms.
My situation is a bit complex, but I’ll try to be as brief as possible. Earlier this year I obtained another job to earn some extra income. Within a month I was fired. They’re reasoning was very vague. They said I was not performing, and blamed me for slow lunches. The only specific action they indicated was the fact that I checked myself out before a customer.
In retrospect, it is fair that they fired me then as the customer should always come first. Regardless of what I have learned since then, at the time my departure was less than diplomatic. To say that I was furious was an understatement. It was the first time I had ever been fired, and I admit I did not handle it well. In a heated phone conversation with the owner of the unit later, I was told I was the worst employee he had ever had and then proceeded to call me a dumb ass when I pressed him about whether or not he would stiffing me on my last check.
