I searched for a copy of Winn-Dixie's SOP (Standard Order of Procedures) manual but they don't make it readily available to the public.
The Winn-Dixie SOP Manual is available on the Winn-Dixie intranet at //info/
I suggest you download a copy and determine exactly what their procedure is in conjunction with the advice in the rest of this post.
What I did find available however was a copy of
Winn-Dixie Code of Business
Conduct & Ethics
(PDF format). In the Adobe Reader tool bar, go to page 6 / 17.
First, depending on how long you've been employed, request a copy of your latest review results, if you don't already have one that is. Also make a
copy of any awards or commendations that you may have received. If you don't have any of the aforementioned that's fine, but it is always good to
have a record of your work history at the ready.
As far as the event in question:
Document your experience on paper as you recall it happening, include EVERY
detail to the best of your memory. Include time, date,
people present in the room, etc. I think what a lot of people are missing is that you were NOT on their network or on Company time, you were on their
property however, but I don't feel that is grounds for what the manager did.

As far as the other claims to this guys mismanagement, my opinion, slow down Turbo!...ONE thing at a time. When you call to report this, HR will see
you as just another hot headed disgruntled employee who has authority issues if you are like "he's a mean and nasty man, he does this and doesn't
do this", as opposed to someone who feels their rights were legitimately violated as yours seemingly were.
I recommend you first try and utilize the W-Dial option that Winn-Dixie's HR provides to resolve grievances. If you feel the manager is out of line,
then by all means call on every account, it is anonymous after all.
However, I feel you really need to ask yourself this very important question:
What do you want to come of this?
This can go as far as you want to take it I would imagine. You may want to contact an attorney as well and describe the incident, he/she will tell you
right away if you have a case or not. If you do...
Just keep in mind that this will be "little ole you & your attorney" Vs. a "Multi-million Dollar Corporation". By no means is that intended to
discourage you, more just to iterate the "scope of the fight" if you will. Personally, I feel your right to view ATS would be worth the fight.
Plenty of people have won damages in court cases against Corporate giants (I use that term loosely for Winn-Dixie). Keep us posted in this thread. I
would like to know what the final outcome is, grand or not.
