My husband worked there! You might remember him, Eligah Owens? The drugs there were horrible and it was a sh!tty place to work, because everyone was up in our marriage! They only change their grease at the first of the month. That is why their chicken taste burnt the rest of the month!!!

Your answers will be there. If you didn't follow this to a T, you are going to be Out of Luck. a Dr.'s note usually does not cut it. A Dr.'s Note WITH appropriate paperwork filed with it, will.

Doug Knipp owns it. He owns the one in Prestonsburg also. I think they should drug screen! I know for a fact that Doug Knipp would not put up with any of this BS, because I worked at the old KFC for 6 years. It was owned by someone else, but Doug Knipp would come in occasionally. Prestonsburg is ran so much better and it taste a whole lot better also!

Pres. Clinton (I think) signed the family leave act and I believe it was for 6 months. I'd check it out.

He is the only brother who carries sexual har. insurance on himself. He also threatened to kill my husband just to get with me. KNOW WHO YOU WORK FOR!!

KNOW WHO YOU WORK FOR!! He will not do anything about the drugs. He is also known for sexual har. More than once, he has paid people off when he shouldn't even have a buisness. Out of 3 brothers @ kfc, he is the only one who carries sexual har. insurance on himself. Tells you something about his character. He has threatened his female manager husband, saying he would kill them to be w/her.Then another one complained 2 argust (dougs bro) in HR that doug keeps sexually har. her and she is sick of it--he told her to stay quiet or she will no longer work for there. wow. don't let your daughters work there. He even had area managers who have complained of this. He promises promotions for __________

You are wrong unless they just recently changed the law-there is such a thing as family leave for dyer circumstances.

Take this to a lawyer! I am telling you. If this company knew all along what you were doing and u kept them informed about it then I'm telling you to see a lawyer. You can find one that will give u a free consultation. Explain to them and take the damn idiot that fired you to court. You will win. I work for an attorney and I've seen this. We do have rights against these hateful companies and not enuff people stand up and fight. If you were a good worker in general and didn't miss work or have any infractions then u can win this. The reason being most assy managers will say things like - u were a bad worker or u were always tardy or missed work a lot etc. But seriously. Fight this.

Some girl at the Paintsville KFC asked out an old guy from VanLear, and he has an elderly wife to care for. He is neglecting his wife to see this girl. She is bleached blonde, not real skinny. She probably doesn't know about the disabled wife. This is awful. Man seldom comes home. Would anyone know her?
