ResCare Gallia County (OH): A member who is passionate about his work with his consumers was unfairly disciplined. With the assistance of the Member Resource Center, the discipline was thrown out and the member received pay for the days he was on administrative leave. In a grievance with another worker in the same county, a member was issued improper warnings for tardiness. The grievance was filed and won within 13 days. 

ResCare Belmont County (OH): A member who had worked hard at ResCare for almost 4 years decided it was time to move on. She called the Member Resource Center to report that the company failed to pay her for a raise she was supposed to have received six months prior to her resignation. The MRC filed a grievance and received a check with all missing back pay.

ResCare Montgomery County (OH): A member contacted the Member Resource Center after realizing that she was missing months of pay for medication passes. The MRC immediately filed a grievance and after the first grievance meeting, the member received around $600 for the missing work. Progress has been made but the dispute has not been completely resolved. 

ResCare Berkeley County (WV): The Member Resource Center filed a grievance for a member missing several hours of pay on her most recent paycheck. The grievance and pay for the missing hours were resolved within one day. 

ResCare Wood County (OH): A member had tried herself to get ResCare to pay her 35 hours of missing Overtime but was unsuccessful. She filed a grievance with the help of the MRC and won back pay for the overtime hours.
