prestige holdings ill treats workers

I am an employee of prestige holdings i work at a kfc reataurant in south. I worked and wen i recieved my pay i realised that part of my pay was missing wen i inquired i was told that if i dont clock out i cant get pay . I've worked there for over 2 yrs and this is a new rule that was implemented because management previously clocked workers out..It was implemented without posting up any notices for employees to be aware that if they dont clock out from now on they dont get pay. Why is it that prestige as a million dollar company dont want to pay workers what they worked so hard for. Do they think that at this day and age we are their slaves. When workers enquired about the lack of communication between mgt and workers regarding the notices of change in the clocking out system we were told that managemant cannot do anything and we cannot be reinbursed for pay that we did not recieve. somebody help because prestige holding is makin too much money to not pay its workers what they worked for!!!!!!!!!!!!

I immediately took it to the counter and I asked to see the manager.You wont believe what she said. Quote,"Well its just that the cup is dirty so dont wory we will give you another soft drink." I didn't want a replacement .I needed an apology.

Wow i had just a terrible experience recently at K.F.C Montrose. Significant other and I bought two real deals. To my utter dismay my kfc cup that was filled with orange soft drink was full of black moss only after drinking from it I realized it.

Iwill like the policy that the customer is always right to sometimes they are right, particularly at kfc cunupia, customers will see that there is only one cashier and still proceed to abuse that individual.

To the staff of PHL I would advise that you visit the Ministry of labour and state your case. They in turn would act directly with PHL Management. What you can also do it you are being victimize is join an indepentant union and they will act for you.

I think Prestiege don't care once they make their money. The Management team they elect don't have the capability or know how, on how to manage effectively. It's a shame they don't realise how important their employees are. I once worked for them.

If these wokers are not getting paid they should take up their grievances with the Ministry of Labour who turn should send a warning letter to the Manager of Prestige Holdings. In this day and age workers need an honest days pay for a days work.

At least one commentator seem to know what goes on behind the counter at K.F.C.!! To deny anyone their wages because of a new job policy is illegal in most instances. Poor communication, however, is a human relations problem that must be corrected!

I am also and employee of kfc and it was put in writing and verbally said that staff has to be responsible enough to clock in and out on time and that mgt. will no longer be able to ajust the time clock.My mgt. reminds us and we don't have that prob.

I feel empathy towards the employees for not getting wages due to them, and mgmt needs to provide Notices either verbally or in writing to notify staff on any changes that is being made before implementing that change.

Workers have to join unions, workers need unions now more than ever, and don`t make excuses by bad mouthing unions, you get the leaders you elect, workers have to not only join but also to participate in the union activities,especially elections.

Obviously, the workers will hand down the treatment they are getting from their employers unto the customers. If employers will treat workers with respect and give them their just dues > I know workers will be more courteous and productive, but emplo
