I work for a privately owned company in Ar that recently fired an office manager and told her it was necessary because they were cutting back on payroll expenses. Now in less than a month they are hiring a salesman/production/computer employee for another office. Payroll is paid for all offices from the same account, branch offices do not stand on their own. Additionally, a few years ago the company owner took the position that you had a 90 day probation period before you were full time and then at one year of employment when you were reviewed and eligible for an annual raise you had to wait the additional 90 days for the raise. However, it has recently come to light that certain male employees have not had to wait and were even paid retroactively if the raise failed to go into effect. While 2 women employees were told they had to wait the 90 days. They have also in the same month promoted another man that has stated it is in his job description to grope all the women in the office. And they promoted a new male employee to office manager in the office the woman was fired from.
