I saw your note yesterday hugs, but I didn't know how to respond, since this has only happened once to me, and all I did was go right to payroll, tell them it was not my mistake and they better make good and they cut me a check the same day.
I'm glad you did get some good advice from people in the know.
I did have to comment on the United way though, had the sae experiences, and HIGH PRESSURE pitch. Everyone was so intimidated they filled out their contribution forms the same day. Only a handfull of us didn't. I turned in my slip with a note attached, thank you I contribute to the charities of my choice which include the MDA, American Cancer Society, Veterans Admin., etc...
Has anyone been asked to give a donation to their own employer? I have worked for 2 non-profits, and I have been asked to do so for both. I didn't contribute to either. I support them with my blood sweat and tears, and to me that is enough! Also, this last job, another non-profit asked for $60 from each empoyee to shop for Christmas gifts for underprivileged consumers, I did give that, at least it was a one-shot donation, but weekly deductions? I don't think so!
