minnesota: i was fired for supposedly stealing a gift card from work. what happened was i was given a gift card for christmas and had it out to check balance on it when for some reason i sat it down. mind it was 4 days till christmas and were busy. when i grabbed my card off the counter i put it back in my wallat and then used it that day to buy a few things for christmas. this happend on dec 21 2001. on january 31 2002 i was called into the office. i was questioned about my discount card and gift cards and what happened with thnigs left behind. then was asked about what happens when credit cards and gift cards were left behind. i said they would go to accounting. i was then asked about the gift card he (the loss prevention guy) was holding and if i knew what happened with that card. it was mailed out as a christmas gift but received empty and the one loaded was the one i used. i didn't deny buying the items i did or using my gift card. i had made amistake and grabbed the wrong one. what happened to mine i don't know and have no way of tracking i don't have a receipt and can not get one. and what happened to the other employee that forgot to give the right card i don't know either, but i was fired and the only proof they have is a receipt. is that right? or is there something i can do about it? i have tried getting a meeting scheduled to argue my point in this cause but my store mananger there hasn't called me back with a daye or time. i feel like i am being put off. also the loss prevention guy is no longer at this store it was his last day at that store.
