Well if you havent heard let me be the first.....Ms Becky's place found a drug needle in the building and from the rumors flying around Ms Becky got it wrong again...The person whom she thought it belong too guess what? It wasnt! The employee that owned that thing still works for her. Cant mention Names but.....Ms Becky you need to open your eyes, their still working for you and you owe someone and "Im Sorry, I was wrong"......And the real owner needs to step up to the plate and let Ms Becky know it's yours instead of letting someone else take the fall for your screw up......tune in for the lastest to see if they or man or woman enough...

you know how real employers solve these kind of problems! Drug Testing! Of course if you did that in the restaurant business you wouldnt have any employees. But in cases like this you cant go firing someone without proof so if she fired someone on an accusation like this without having sufficient evidence they need to contacting a lawyer. Not a local lawyer either Miss Becky is in the "circle" round here if you know what I mean.

Sounds to me like a WRONGFUL TERMINATION SUIT with some emotional distress from the false accusations and not to mention what something like this could do for a reputation. Get a GOOD LAWYER! Consultation will be free. That is when you explain your case to the lawyer and in cases like this if Miss Becky fired you for something like this she has no hard evidence about then the lawyer will do it for free off top and take a percentage of the claim.

In Kentucky you can fire an employee

for any or no reason.

I seriously doubt any lawyer would

take the case on contingency because

the cost of pursuing the suit would

exceed MS Becky's assets in the

highly unlikely event they won

the lawsuit.

Do you seriously believe that

Ms Becky would be running that

greasy spoon if she had anything.

I know Ms Becky by sight.

Don't know her last name and

she has no clue who I am.

I ate at the restaurant twice

since she took it over and

haven't been back.

Calling the place a greasy spoon

is being kind.

If the person who got fired,

contacts a lawyer I suggest they

contact a competent lawyer who

will advise them that they have no case.

The best they can hope for would be

a settlement because it would be cheaper

to settle than to fight the case.

Regardless, if Ms Becky had squat,

she wouldn't be running that restaurant.

If you get a judgement off of someone

who cannot pay, what's the point.

That's why any competent lawyer

will tell them to forget a lawsuit.

Whatever GET A LAWYER dont listen to Mr balls. I think a nice settlement would be the restaurant or at least monthly restitution payments from Miss Becky!
If I knew one of my buddys was in some deep legal crap and I could steer the direction of legal action away from them it would be beneficial on their behalf to throw in a little slander about them and their business to play the part. It's called disinformation!

A little slander on Topix never hurt anyone anyway. Mr. Balls if your not concerned about the welfare of Miss Becky's business why not just back off the subject. Aside from your disinformation tactics and strategy it appears you have a foot in the fire.

I seriously could care less what happens to the restaurant.

My point is that you are instigating someone to pursue

legal action where there is no case.

Did you take time to read the information at the link I posted?

If the restaurant closed tomorrow, the only consequence

would be that there is one less greasy spoon in Dawson.

I am not slandering the restaurant.

Only stating my opinion of the meals I was served there.

If the restaurant is an at will employer, then yes, she can fire an employee for any reason.

Yes, Kentucky is an "at will" state. But, you can't fire someone for drug use without proof! This employee should have been sent for drug testing. Miss Becky has one huge lawsuit on her hands if this employeee decides to take the matter to court. If this happened recently, like yesterday, tell this former employee to get their own drug test,if they are really innocent. This will be all the proof they will need to make the business pay dearly.

This is why a business is required to have proper insurance!! If this business is not in corporation, then The courts can levy the owners personal property!

I hope the terminated employee has the brains not to listen to such nonsense as you posted. Any reason or no reason for terminating an employee is the law. Suspected drug use is a reason. Not liking the employees eye color is a reason. Downsizing is a reason. Any competent lawyer will tell them there is no case,

I'm sure the judicial system had more to worry about than some crack head waitress that got fired.

GET A LAWYER TO avoid any bad publicity I am not going to disclose my name. I am an attorney in Madisonville. I would take this case. I agree with "PAYDAY" , "Mr. BALLZ" seems to have a foot in the fire. You dont even need to go get a drug test if Ms Becky did not test you and she fired you for suspected drug use then you got a case. You have hands down settlement.

This is an illiterate response. The judicial system was established to serve the public. GET A LAWYER!

Oooops!!!

Did I hear an ambulance going by?

I do not know Ms Becky.

I do not patronize the restaurant.

Unfortunately, you or another bottom feeder

will probably take this case on contingency

knowing that the restaurant will settle

because its cheaper to settle

bull$hit lawsuits

than to win the case in court.

I personally hope the restaurant fights any

lawsuit that may arise from the owner exercising

her legal option to terminate an employee.
