Man receives final paycheck as oily pennies dumped on driveway

Man receives final paycheck as oily pennies dumped on driveway

A man in Georgia who was having trouble getting the last paycheck from his employer discovered its equivalent in pennies dumped in his driveway. Andreas Flaten quit his job at A OK Walker Luxury Autoworks in Nov 2020 citing ’toxic’ working conditions. Earlier this month, Flaten discovered more than 91,000 grease-covered pennies and an envelope with his final pay stub that read ’F--- you!’.

Worker's rights are human rights. Payday is established in iron, and for an employer to eschew that sacred principle is unAmerican. I don't care how awful an employee is, if you hire someone you MuSt mUsT MUST pay them on time. I have no sympathy for greasy and unscrupulous employers, I'd have taken this fool to court the immediate day after failure to deliver the final paycheck.

I'd also consider petitioning the court for reimbursement for spent time and materials to clean the pennies and to clean the oily spot on the driveway. This person is letting themselves be used as a door mat.

Isn't that regulated? Here there are limits on the number of coins you can pay with, to prevent this sort of thing. It would be a shame if all Mr. Walkers customers see this and assume this is how he would like to be paid.

Title 31 of the United States Code, section 5103, says that he doesn't have to accept them as payment for his wages. Plus, that note now opens his employer to a hostile environment lawsuit.

Regardless of the former employee's work ethics, this should not have happened. If an employee quits, you pay them up to the last day of work at the next payday and move on. Anyone who does business with A Ok Walker Luxury Autoworks should reconsider any future business or pay with 'oily pennies!'

I'm not sure this is against the law or if it violates the NAP (Non Aggression Principle), but it's a super douche move.

Of course Newsvoice deleted my comment. Unless you’re a tankie nerd they don’t let you say anything.

Clearly it was a toxic workplace if that is how your boss pays you.
