My question involves labor and employment law for the state of: Colorado.
I was employed by King Soopers and origanaly worked in the deli department. About a week after I started I was told to cover for someone in produce for a few days. By the time i started working in the deli again the manager said i wasn't getting the hang of it fast enough and transferd me to bag/carts person (courtesy cleark) and cut my pay some. Three weeks later I was called into the conference room where the assistant manager and two security guys were and accused me of stealing a $2 sandwich and I denyed it. they continued to accuse me for ten mins and then said their going to call the cops if I don't admit it and i figure if they didn't belive me then the cops wouldn't belive me eather so I admitted it. They also never showed me any proof and they said they had a witness that said they saw me put the sandwich in my purse and that it was sticking out as i left the store(BS). They suspended me for 3 days. Then when i went in for my meeting they fired me and now I have to pay a $250 Civil Restitution fee. and after the fact i went back in and asked to see the proof and the manager said "we don't have to do that". What should I do? What happens if I don't pay the $250 on time? And is paying for it another way of addmitence incase I wanted to take and leagal action?
