ED Magedson – Founder
InteGreat Staffing Agency1550 Latimer St. Suite 240 Denver, Colorado United States of America
I was contacted in June 2009 by
Tina Norris (President) of TNT Management, a temp agency. Norriss contact info. is
office-515-255-9073, cell-515-745-8351, Fax-1-888-691-0058.
I worked for Norris, 1-day in 2007 and 1-day in 2008, as a Vendor. When she called, she asked if I was employed. I explained that I was unemployed and getting unemployment. She said that I did not have to report the income as long as I did not make more than $600.00. She explained that she knew of an agency that was looking for workers in my area and would forward my contact info to them and how I can expect a call from them soon.
I was contacted by Julia Warren, (National Account Director) of Integreat Staffing Agency, LLC, (ISA), 1550 Larimer St. Suite #240, Denver, CO, 80202-1643, 1-888-709-4012, Fax-1-866-247-8686. She has contacted me by phone with the name showing up as Jan Hansel-970-586-2041.
I also have paperwork with the heading of InteGreat Staffing Agency that has the contact information for, located at 2801 Camino De Rio S., Suite 200-1, San Diego, CA 92108, Tel 619-295-1755, Fax 619-295-3106.
I called this number and told they are Action Event & Promotions and are in suite 312 and have never heard of InteGreat Staffing Agency, LLC.
Again, I was asked by Warren about my employment status and I responded and was told the same as Norris, how I did not have to report wages, until I made over $600.00. I was told, the hours to start and leave and that I would be paid $14.00 an hour and scheduled to work June 20 and 21, 2009, as a Vendor at various Walmart stores, distributing pharmaceutical goods. At that time, I was instructed to purchase an item for $1.50 or less, each time upon arrival and departure and to submit these receipts as proof.
The day before I was to start, I was contacted by Warren, who said I needed to fill in for 2-people, meaning to cover 2-stores. Upon arrival, Warren instructed me to only make a purchase and leave this store and go to the other store and make a purchase. Then I was to return back, to the 1st store and work several hours and to time out by making a purchase and return to the 2nd store, make the purchase, and leave. The 2nd-day I was to start at the 2nd store, with the same procedures. I was told what hours to report and leave and worked 4.75 hours each day and was to be paid $28.00 instead of the $14.00 an hour for covering 2-people. I worked in my street clothes and was to pick up the box from the pharmacy dept. to distribute the goods. She contacted me while in route to the store to make sure I was on my way.
I was contacted again by Norris, about the last of July, who asked about how things went, when I last worked for (IAS) and I told her that they shorted my check, by $38.00. On August 17, 2009, I received a check for $44.00. I was contacted, by Warren again to work, Aug. 22 and 23, 2009. This weekend, I worked in 2-different stores; 1-store per day at 4.75 hours each day at $14.00 an hour, again I was told what time to start and leave. This time I received the package by mail along with a charge card, early Sat. morning, of which I was to work.
I received an email that said they received all of my paperwork correctly and how my check was to be mailed Sept. 4, 2009. As of today, I have not received these wages.
I was contacted by Warren to work Aug. 28, through Aug. 30, 2009. I agreed, to only work the 28th and 29th. However, I did not get to work on the 28th, because I had not yet received the package of supplies, I was expecting by FedEx, until the morning of Aug. 29th.
I received a phone call from Warren early the morning of Aug. 29th wanting me to work as I did, in June, when I was 1st hired. I then became suspicious and did a research on Independent Contractor v. Employee and learned that I had been giving wrong information and how they were misclassifying my employment status. I refused to work that day and since.
I immediately emailed Warren with reasons and asked where to mail the package and the charge card, that I had just received earlier that day, well before the time, that I was to start work. I was instructed by Warren, to hold on to the package, because someone would be coming by my house, to pick it up and never did. Days later, I was instructed to take it to the Pharmacy of the last store I worked. I did and they refused to take it. Then I was told by Warren to mail it to the Larimer location in Denver, CO. I did all of those things.
All of my phone calls and emails, since were ignored without a response. I contacted the MO Dept. of Labor, Wage and Hour Division and emailed Warren and Marie Mahedy (Business Manager) of (ISA) 970-367-5761, on 9/14/09 giving them the contact name as instructed of Cleveland Marburgh at 913-551-5721 ext. 232. They never contacted him until 9/21/09 and this was the 1st time (ISA) had ever contacted me.
Marburgh was told that I was not due any pay until the last week of Sept.
Mahedy phoned me on 9-21-09 and said that she was not aware of the situation and would contact Warren saying she knows she had been busy in meetings for the last several weeks. I made many phone calls and sent many emails to Mahedy, Warren and (IAS), and all were ignored.
As of today, Mahedy and Warren say they hadnt received the package mailed Sept. 11, 2009 and talk as if they are not wanting to release any pay until they receive the package, nor do they want to acknowledge the receipt given, saying it does not contain a tracking number. (No! I did not nor was I instructed to send this package, certified or with a return receipt, costing more money, that I did not have, being that I had not been paid). I contacted the postal services, 9/21/09 and was told they were to receive the package with-in 9-business days sometime by 9/23/09.
I reported this income and the income from June 2009, during the week ending Aug. 22 & 29, 2009, to the unemployment office. My unemployment checks was held up because of these pending issues. I never received an unemployment check from Aug. 23, until Oct. 2, 2009. Had I known that (IAS) and the unemployment, was not going to pay me, in the month of Sept. I could of applied for emergency food stamps, as they chose to mislead and play games with me.
Sometime during the week of September 13-19, 2009, I received another package by FedEx for week 35. I immediately emailed Warren and Mahedy about this package and Warren said she would make arrangements to have FedEx to return and pick up this package. As of today, they have not done so.
On September 21, 2009, I sent a demand letter to (IAS) and a complaint to the CO Dept. of Labor and Employment-Division of Labor, (Claim Number 5603-09)-Compliance Officer-Ruth Aplington (303) 318-8448, demanding a payment of $146.11 to include the $133.00 for the 2-days I worked 9.5 hours total and to be reimbursed for the mailing of the package at $13.11, for a total sum of $146.11.
On October 28, 2009, I contacted (IAS) and Mahedy answered and I was told that they still hadnt received the package sent 9/11/09 and was not going to do anything, until they speak with Cleveland Marburgh of the MO Labor and Employment Division. I also asked her why had they not made arrangements to pick up the package that was last sent and she said that she was not aware that it had been sent and said that she would get with Warren about this. That was a lie, because I sent both Warren and Mahedy an email and left messages about this package. This was the last conversation and as of today I have not received any calls or pay.
(IAS) is using the package sent, that they claim they have not received as an excuse to not pay me my money. It is evidence that the box is not of importance when they have not made an attempt to have the last package picked up.
Therefore, I am left to believe that all of this is done, in retaliation, because I could no longer and refused to work under those fraudulent conditions. The company was liable and I have suffered damages in the course of their negligence.
