My company folded and the CEO fired everyone and only guaranteed 2 days pay... He was on vacation when this was sent out to the entire staff.

Tangible is now intangible.

Something isn’t kosher here. I’d suggest lawyering up and getting your hands on some of the money that management has clearly been stealing from the business.

And horribly written on top of it all. Unbelievable. Go file for those benefits and keep your chin up... better things ahead.

Is this even legal? Two days of pay?? Hope you are alright, op!

I worked there in the past and am not at all surprised. The stories I could tell about the dysfunction of that place. Mitch (owner) was incredibly cheap and had no concern for his employees. My guess is this is just him retiring. He once had some outside group explain our new benefits to us which were horrendous. They kept saying you can thank Obama for this but do not blame Mitch OP, was Kevin Christian still there? He was a lifer and will definitely struggle to work anywhere else.

The double spaces at the beginning of the sentence is the final insult. Good luck op. Sorry this happened to you.

Fired by memo. Nice work, Mitch. It’s just gutless to defer this shit to legal.

@SVP1 yup Kev was still there. You confirmed a lot of my suspicions on this.

You're not going to recover a dime if you lawyer up. Save your money. Vendors who haven't been paid will be first in line and can afford the legal more than employees can. I'd move on. Sorry again. Grrr...

That sucks, and I’m sorry, and except for the company name, I show up to work every day expecting to see this same note in my inbox, or maybe posted above the padlocked entrance to our office.

I had an interview yesterday with a recruiter. I asked them what the history of the position was to gain insight on where the person in the new role would have to pick up the mantle. They said there was an individual who held the position but did a horrible job. I felt uncomfortable when they told me this. Is this a red flag?
