A few years ago I began my employment on my "$15 per hour job". Later there was an incident where a homosexual employee was harassing multiple individuals in the store. Several of us filed a harassment complaint and we came to find out the individual had deliberately done $6000 in damages to a customer's lawn. The company would not fire the employee because he had not filed a claim with his insurance agency, and if he didn't file a claim the company would have to pay the damages.
later I changed locations and worked for a location in the Florida panhandle. They were owned by R and L enterprises. One day there was a storm passing through with winds of 65 miles per hour, hail and deep flooding on several roads.
Many of expressed concerns that the conditions on the roads were unsafe to drive. (US DOT motor carrier regulations make it a criminal offense to require a driver to drive after the driver assertes that the conditions are unsafe to drive in.) We were told deliveries must continue and if we don't continue we will loose our jobs. We lost two drivers' cars that day (flooded engine) but fortunately no one got hurt.
Later I began having a cretin medical condition and requested accommodations that would not cost the company anything to provide. I was promptly told I was only allowed to take one order at a time even if two were literally across the street from one another. I filed a discrimination complaint which was not received well.
I was suspended without pay during "investigation" and was later fired. I provided statistical evidence proving that having me restricted to single deliveries was counterproductive not only to myself but also to the company. ( Having me deliver single orders created a situation where the revenue generated by my orders was less than my wage plus cost of preparing the orders. )
Myself and many others have also worked more than 40 hours per week for Papa John's and not been paid overtime. I have also had 5.00 in tips withheld from me without legal cause.
Many of our drivers are trying to unionize and the company is threatening to fire anyone who joins the union.
