My daughter worked for a local Pizza Hut here in Birmingham. After she quit and it was time for the W2's to be sent out, she called and inquired about where were hers. She overheard a manager telling another employee to tell her that she wasn't sending her "Anything" and that she would have to come to pick them up. I later found out that this wasn't protocol when speaking to Pizza Hut's HR, she was supposed to mail them to her either at her university or her home address, but nevertheless, the manager refused. Can something be done about this?
Your daughter can contact Pizza Hut corporate headquarters and complain about the manager, and you also can provide information to the Internal Revenue Service. A suit is not always the best answer when someone does some wrongful act since a part of proving a lawsuit is having proof of any harm that was caused. The money value of your daughter's being inconvenienced and upset probably is not worth the time and cost of filing suit.
Since I do not know the facts of your case, I cannot give you legal advice and do not intend to do so. I only am trying to be of some assistance in helping you decide whether or not to hire a lawyer.
As indicated by my colleague, your injury would not likely justify a lawsuit. The filing fee in state court would run you in the neighborhood of $550.00, and it is doubtful that a lawyer would take such a matter. Your chances of prevailing without an attorney would not be good.
Even though Avvo makes it clear to consumers that attorney answers to questions are for general purposes only and do not establish an attorney-client relationship, it must be clear that any answers are based on limited information and particular circumstances may influence any direct advice.
