Early Payroll Check Pickup
Posted 28 November 2012 - 08:21 PM
We have a new controller, has been with the company for 2 weeks, and he has told my manager that I need to be fired. In 19 years I have never done anything like this, this was done without even thinking, I needed my paycheck, I work in payroll so I knew it would be available on Thursday so I asked the audit dept, and it was given to me.
Can I be fired over this? isn't there a process of Written Warning? then Disciplinary Action and after the third offense the you can be fired?

"Can I be fired over this?"
For asking for your paycheck early? Sure, though it'd be kinda silly. Is there a reason why you're so wound up about this so as to delve so deeply into it?
"my issue with this is that this has happened before and those employees are still here. This is a large Medical Institution and if you know the right people you can get away with almost anything based on length of employment."
I have no idea what would prompt these kinds of comments based on the details you've posted. It isn't as though you described smacking someone upside the head.
If you are fired for asking for and receiving your paycheck early, there's no reason to think you won't qualify for unemployments.
I'll echo PG's advisory "warning" with a twist: (Many) legal issues are complicated. Explanations and comments here might not fully identify or explain the ramifications of your particular problem. I do not give legal advice as such (and such is impermissible here at any rate). Comments are based on personal knowledge and experience and legal info gleaned over a quarter century, and every state has differing laws on and avenues to address most topics. If you need legal advice, you need to consult (and pay) a professional so that you may have someone to hold accountable. Acting on personal and informational advice from a stranger on the internet is a bad idea -- at least not without your own thorough due dilience/research and confirmation as it applies to your situation.
