Going back in time, (3 years) my husband decided to try to have employees. He thought it would help his production and make his life easier!
So he went to a company to help him. He wanted to do it right and make sure he had all the insurance coverage he needed. All he would have to do is give weekly updates of the hours they had worked. Sounds simple right?
It's not! So a schedule was set up by his employees but it never worked out that they were never on time. Then he got a fine for not having worker's compensation insurance!
He's was so upset because he had gone to this company to help him make sure he had everything! This company doesn't do worker's comp and he was supposed to look for yet another company to do that! That was last year.
He was furious because the guy who came over and showed him all the stuff he had to have never made it clear that they didn't cover that one insurance! So he paid the fine and the employees kind of faded in the wind around that time. So it worked out.
I had many phone conversations and so has my husband with this company. Telling them we would never ever have employees and would never do business with them again. (Sorry employees) It wasn't worth all the work and money he had to spend. Nor did his production improve.
So today, we received a call from this company again! This guy left his name, number, etc... Before he hung up I had to ask him why he was calling. The woman we dealt with before went on maternity leave. He was just updating all her clients on the change until she came back. (December of 06' was the last time we were billed for anything.) So even after a year of telling them we won't ever do business with you again, they still had his account as active! So I gave him the story and told this guy we will never have Employees again!
I hope he gets it and marks it in the file. Don't ever, call again!
But who we kidding, he'll leave the account as is and I'll be receiving a call in 3 months or so!
