I recently got fired from my job a couple weeks before Christmas. I refused to go in and take a drug test on my 2 days off (Thurs. & Fri.) and I got canned. Didn't think they'd fire me for this (I'm clean by the way) and I was shocked. I received my last check but my unused vacation time wasn't included. They owe me $586 for this. I emailed the women in charge of Human Resources and she emailed back that my money would be sent out on 12/31/08. Long story short I still don't have the money and they won't respond to any of my emails and I can't get anyone on the phone. I live down the street from my old office so if they mailed it I'd have it by now. Basically I'm wondering what to do next. I was so pissed yesterday that I couldn't even see straight and I feel like walking right in (the office) with a bat and a bad atitude. I know I cant do this but should I just let it go? It's not even the money so much as getting taken advantage of. Do I just focus on IM and forget it or what. Dwelling on it is killing my focus and unproductive but I feel like they deserve some payback. Any advice? Thanks, gun-shy PS: Jobs suck!
