I worked for a company that Sears subcontracted out to for their deliveries of televisions and refrigerators. Two years ago during Christmas, including Christmas Eve I worked for this company that was named Valleywide Delivery and Assembly. They did not pay me my last months wages. I contactd the owner of the company and he refused to pay.

After much time and frustration I contacted Sears. After a complete month of run arounds it turns out Sears not only can not and would not help me but are also still subcontracting out to the same delivery company. The total amount that I was out was just under $2,000. I ruined my life for about six months. I couldn't pay my bills and in turn my credit reports got hit.

This has casued many problem in my life and luckily I have gotten through them. It still burns me that these big coroporation always say they look out for the little guy but they never do.

I have emailed them called the stores I worked with and they never gave me anything more than a cold shoulder.

AUTHOR: John - (U.S.A.)

Jason,
I'm sorry to hear about your experience with VD&A, I am hear to tell you that you are not alone. I too was owed money by the owner (Company) for services rendered; it would seem that the particular individual or company has a Modus of Operandi. I would like all to hear that doing any kind of business with Valleywide is not a smart decision, whether it be business related or otherwise.
I am truly sorry.

#6 Consumer Comment

Thanx for the insight

AUTHOR: Jason - (U.S.A.)

Thanks for your response. I was paid on a monthly basis. So it wasn't so much that I didn't keep up on it is was more of a blind side. I have tried to file paperwork to garnish his wages and also freeze his bank account, but because I do not know what bank he is with I could not do this. I also filed paperwork for Sears to garnish his wages but you must have the social security number of the person to do this so the statutory agent I filed it with would not garnish his wages because I did not have his SS# I tried to call the Dept. of revenue to find out what they thought about this and they told me that because it was under $2K then they did not care if there were taxes taken out or not. He pays all of his employees under the table somehow and gets away with it.
I will definitely contact the Dept of Labor. That is not a direction I have gone yet and maybe that will help me. I was not aware that you can file criminal charges on a case like this. If you have anymore insight on this I would be more than willing to listen. Thanks for your ideas and look forward to hearing a response.

Solution for Jason, and a question.

AUTHOR: Steve - (U.S.A.)

Jason,

File a wage claim with the Dept. of Labor.

You can also file small claims.

Why would you let them get a month behind on paying you?

After the first missed paycheck, I would have been filing charges with the DOL.

AZ also has some laws that could make this employer face criminal charges. It is a theft of services statute.

I lived in PHX and am familiar with this company.

they are definitely responsible for subcontracting out to unethical companies and people

AUTHOR: Jason - (U.S.A.)

Thanks for the feedback

Alhough I can see why Sears is not responsible, I feel that a corporation can only be as good as the people that they hire to run it. Sears may not be responsible for paying me but they are definitely responsible for subcontracting out to unethical companies and people. If Sears would have done their homework, they would see that this person and company have other issues besides just mine.

Key word is "SUB-CONTRACTED"

AUTHOR: Marc - (U.S.A.)

The sub-contractor is completely responsible for your pay. You weren't hired by Sears. They don't even know you.

Sears is not responsible

AUTHOR: Scott - (U.S.A.)

Sears is not responsible for your wages. Your employer is solely responsible to pay your wages. Sears did not rip you off, your employer did.

I understand you are very frustrated, as well you should be, but Sears should not have been mentioned in your report.
