Regis Corporation - Smartstyle7201 metro Blvd Minneapolis, Minnesota United States of America
Here I am fighting my own battle of this big corporation base on their policy and what seems to be an illegal practics against their transfer employees, plus other unfair action taken us.
I tell you my story which I am sure a large number of the thirty five thousand [35000.00] employ by Regis Corporation can related to, you be the judge!
Comapany: Regis corporation, is made up of several divisions, I joined the Super Cuts division in April 2006, the company policy stated that after working three years you have earned two weeks vacation pay, in April 2008 I requested a tranfere to the Smartstyle division.
With the permission of the divisional supervisor I was release to Smartstyle along with all my earned benifits Health, Dental,Eye, stock,401k, all these benifits remain in forced because I was still working for and been pay by the same company, Regis Corporation, [Right?] .
In April 2009 I was due two weeks vacation, pay so I made the request to my dismay and suprise I was only given one week pay, when I ask why that was so I was inform by top managment that in 2008, when I was transfer, I came in as a new hire with some of my benifits but not my full earned vacation pay.
I pointed out to them if this was correct how comes my other benifits continue from 2006 to 2009 I was told because I am still in the system, I also notice that on April 24/09 my hire date was change from April 2006 to April 2008, I have been inform that this is a practics Regis has been using to denial Vacation benifits to tranfere employees who has work for them many years, most of us are women and single mother, we need justics!
Some other unfair practics that need to be stop:Unlaw full dismissal, recently we where shown a video about why we should not joined any union each of us was given a form to sign myself and a another employee refuse to sign this form as a result both of us have been subjected to contant warning and write up for just about everythings, For exmple I am a commission pay, not hourly but today I was dismissed by the regional manager on charges that I work off the clock for 15min and that I took more than 30min lunch break.
Just this week two stylists where force to quit or be terminated because business is slow and they where not making the 40% and the company did not want to continue to pay them wage, what was distrubing they where put on one day per week schedule ,but the company was also telling them that they could not be employ as a hairstylist anywhere else per Regis policy.
We can not all have our own business, so so welcome other who are able to proved needed jobs, but please remember that we bring to the table our skills and willingness all we ask of you is to treat with dignity and as professional and pay us all earned benifits and at least 50% of what we make behind the chair, and when we sell the retails stop trying to find ways to denial us the earned 10%.
To all the hair Stylists that worked for Regis corporation and can relate to these unfair business practics and discriminatory compensation decision, remember if we dont stand for somthing we will fall for everything, please add your voice and cry out for justics only then will changes comes.
