Fired for dishonesty
I have been at my job a little over 3 years, and I have been through hell and back with this job. I made one little mistake that I think could have been handled better. I worked for a famous bakery in Philadelphia PA called (edited employer's name for your own protection)
I was a cashier and I was responsible for opening the store which was 7:30am Monday-Friday closed at 6pm. We wait on hundreds of ppl everyday. So I get a walk-in customer on a busy Friday who wanted to purchase a full sheet cake but we don't carry those on a daily basis you have to order them, so I offered her 2 1/2 sheet cakes for the price of a full sheet cake. I rang them up but I punched in the wrong amount so I had an overring I got them signed, now my employer never asked me right then and there about the overring until later on and when I was finally questioned about the overring days later I totally forgot about it. My employer called me to her office and she showed me on the camera what I had did and told me that I was fired for making an executive decision without permission. All I want to ask is do you think that was professional? Also she stole money from employees and docked my pay without me knowing. What should I do?
Professional? Can't hardly give my thoughts on that when I'm still in the dark about pretty much everything .. except your thought that someone stole money from employees and docked your pay? For what.
Sorry, I'm still not clear about the termination or where the dishonesty comes in ..
Whether you know precisely which written rule you violated or the consequences for it in your employee handbook.
Or, if you've had any relevant prior written warnings in the past three years.
Nor do I know what the video showed you doing ..
Nor do I know what you meant when you mention "signed".I rang them up but I punched in the wrong amount so I had an overring I got them signed, now my employer never asked me right then and there about the overring until later on and when I was finally questioned about the overring days later I totally forgot about it.
Hard to tell what's going on here or how this is related to getting unemployment compensation in PA until I know more .. or have some reference for doing what .. about what.
