Fallout from February  
 I wonder if anyone else has recently looked at their Merrill Lynch 401K statement to discover that on April 1 ML reversed out the February contribution.  Seems like it has also "bounced".... Now I expect a letter from Aetna letting me know my February medical and dental premiums have also "bounced"....  So I guess I need to contact HR..... Just want to thank our "key executives" who are busy petitioning the court for their bonuses for being on top of their business and looking out for us "little people"...  I just want you to know that I am constantly eager to get more BR+ sign-ups for you because I know how much you appreciate me!!!!

Not only can the Company NOT match your contribution because they don't have any money for anything but "retention bonuses"...but now they can't even get your payroll deduction right ???

WOW, when this Company screws the pooch, they really do it up in style.

I am not sure this is legal. Seems to me that since they are not matching it is money from your paycheck. And even if they do put the money back you would have lost whatever profit that would have been made on the money when they put it back. Sounds a bit like embezzlement to me.

Short of Cash?
Hmmmm.....sounds like they are desperate for cash, not stealing.

How can it not be? It is his money that was not paid.

Re: Fallout from February
Along that same line, I have an FSA. It just recently occurred to me that I haven't been getting the reimbursements I should have coming. Anyone else encounter this?

Why anyone would invest in ANY 401Ks is beyond me. They exist to steal from you. Wonder how many Blockbuster and Circuit City employees got ripped off. Not to mention the thousands that lost their entire savings in 08 across the country. I'll never EVER give my money to big businesses.

Aetna Not Paid Also?
I really don't want to consider this because I didn't think it was possible, BUT ... Friday night I decided to go ahead and sign on for COBRA, and when I logged in to "Conexis" to do it on line, their system didn't show any medical or dental options available for me! (Even though I have the paperwork they mailed me ten days ago showing both!) I assumed that this was some kind of digital glitch, but now the hair on the back of my neck is standing up.

Re: Aetna Not Paid Also?
I have had vision insurance through Conexis since being laid of. They send the payment notice around the 20th of the month and it is due the 1st of the following month. Never received a bill for April. Called the company and apparently I no longer have any COBRA insurance. What the heck is going on?

As many have said, this company will fuck up Chapter 11. They have shown time after time that they don't have a clue. My guess is though that they will go about getting their bonuses somehow.
(Anonymous) on April 4th, 2011 06:58 am (UTC)
My theory is we will "exit" bankruptcy as planned, the bonuses will be paid out, and within a month Chapter 7.
(Anonymous) on April 3rd, 2011 09:32 pm (UTC)
I sure hope they are submitting our witheld taxes! It would be a real kick in the teeth if they were 'borrowing' that cash before turning it in to th state or fed.
(Anonymous) on April 4th, 2011 01:54 am (UTC)
That would be illegal- It's called tax evasion. I wouldn't be contributing to anything anymore- especially in this economy.

The company's CFO was brought in from a Las Vegas Strip Casino. No scam under the sun pulled by this company should surprise anyone. This includes failure to transfer money withheld from employes for taxes, IRA contributions, or insurance.

Sheesh, Borders doesn't know WTF they're doing. Bringing a CFO in who worked at a Vegas casino, and has no bookselling background? LMFAO!

Re: When is the last day
Not soon enough, and if you were really an employee you would not know the answer to that either.
