I used to work for a company as a General Manager, but gave my notice for a couple reasons. One reason was due to a medical issue and the other was their cult-like culture. This is a fairly large restaurant chain.
As of today, I've been separated from the company for 2 months. However, I received a letter in the mail stating that I have been on "non-medical leave of absence" for the last week that's expected to last for another 3 weeks. I think my regional manager has secretly kept me listed as "employed".
The way this company works is that when a new person is hired, the manager/trainer of that person can receive a bonus. I believe it's $5,000 for a new General Manager, if I'm remembering correctly. The catch is that the person has to work there for at least X number of months, which I didn't reach when I quit. In my opinion, it's likely that my manager has extended my employment to receive the bonus.
What issues could this raise for me? One that sticks out to me is that background checks might show I worked somewhere for a different amount of time that I actually did.
