The Sails Group, which is supposed to be a non-profit, is a very corrupt company. Many of the employees who work here or have worked here are not getting paid. Several employees are consistently missing more than half of their paycheck amounts yet they continue to come into work for fear of termination. Those who complain seem to note that the company does a lot of illegal wrangling around to threaten or get rid of the employees who do complain.

Currently, there is at least one employee who is going to take this issue to small claims court; what we need is a lawyer to turn this into a big case. This company also fails to pay people the overtime they are due. Many employees are still waiting to be paid since months ago. The company also practises crooked methods of avoiding paying its employees, for example, one employee was told he wouldn't get paid because he was scheduled to work with another person at the same time, and the company said it won't pay you for this, even if it's the company itself which made the mistake of scheduling the employee to come into work.

So, basically the employees are being kept as slaves here, working for free. The company already got rid of our paid time off and even our sick time, so they are gaining money when people call out sick. This company needs to be brought to justice for what it is doing. Many people cannot pay their bills and are afraid of not having money to pay their rent, but they keep coming to work for fear of retaliation.

I would like a lawyer to contact me about this issue as I have compiled information regarding my own case and would like to see this company pay. I also think it would be a good idea if several employees file complaints together and turn this into a class action lawsuit.
