I have some questions about labor laws and i dont know who to go to for this and i am afraid to lose my job because if i say anything i will. I work at (deleted by moderator) car wash in williamsburg VA. I am not the only one who has had problems regarding illegal acts and violations. Any person who has tried to fight (deleted by moderator) has failed or is to scared to stand up because they fear they will get fired because a lot of people have been fired in the past.
First things first (deleted by moderator) is taking thirty minutes out of everyones time whether or not they've had a break. (deleted by moderator) is so busy sometimes no one gets a break yet its still taken out of the employees paycheck.
Second of all if any employee has an accident or cause any damages they will deduct it out of your paycheck instead of using their insurance to cover the damages. And if you quit or refuse to pay for these damages they will fire you and sue you for causing the damages.
Example: An employee was hired to vacuum cars and drive cars into a tunnel. Now the track in the tunnel is so worn down that the metal has turned into a giant blade that can pop tires in which it has and the employee had to pay for the damages because the company doesnt manage their equipment properly. This is just the first instance there has been a lot more.
Another thing is overtime. when it comes to overtime you either get a little bit of what your supposed to get or nothing at all.
The biggest thing of all is when the labor is high the managers will clock employees while they are working to keep the labor low!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Please help the people at (deleted by moderator) are scared to stand up for their rights and are scared to lose their job. So am We need help and this isnt right and i dont know how they have gotten away with this for so long ididnt know my worker rights until someone told me what they were doing was so illegal. Who do i go to? I cant do this alone
