Recently at a Target store in Forest Lake, MN my favorite employee there was fired. This young man was very hard working, going to college and according to other employees at this store a top worker, had been talked to about becoming a team lead, received numeous praise notes on a weekly if not daily basis.
This young man was told on Thursday, March 31 that an investigation would be started to see if he commited time clock fraud. Target is alleging he wrote in time on his card which totaled $8. Five days later they fired this young man.
He was never given a chance to defend himself; he was never given a warning or put on "corrective plan" (as Target likes to do). They just fired him.
He is coming up on his year anniversary, will be eligible for a raise and benefits. Rather than pay the tiny extra Target might with a raise ($.10) they fire people. If they are going to make false accursations to force people out at least let them resign. Target is far worse to their employees than WalMart, hands down.
