Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
I need to clarify a couple of points, that occurred to me when I looked at my original posts.
First, less than 10% of K&G stores do $5,000,000 or more, which really isn't a issue with this question of "are we owed", if you will, just a statement. It was part of the real estate contract, and is a "out" for K&G if they would decide to use it, which is completely within their right.
Secondly, there are 13 employees that could be affected, not just the 6 FTE's that I responded about earlier, if this might make a difference from a legal standpoint.
I am sorry, not sure what happened either. To answer your original response, before the last reply. I have a letter from counsel at K&G that states that since they gave us more than 30 days they do not have to pay us severance, based on their (the company's policy) I presume.
We were notified on June 17 that the last day we were to be employed by K&G, (the Men's Wearhouse) would be July 30th. The Land lord was notified on July 2, by a letter dated July 1st, which was the time we were supposed to be notified, according to the Landlord.
You answered my question, and I am completely satisfied with the answer. It's not what I wanted to hear, but I can go back to my co-workers and let them know that this was completely within K&G rights, however much bad faith the company has showed to us.
As a side note, K&G, like the Men's Wearhouse, presents it's customers on our front doors a decal from Fortune Magazine promoting "ourselves" as a top 100 company to work for in America... do you think so?
