Employee Discounts

Postby Anonymous User » Wed May 16, 2012 11:22 am

I think I already know the answer, but I figure I'll ask anyway. Say a company gives employees of the firm your working at discounts. Is it improper to take advantage even though you are only a SA? For example, say Verizon wireless gives employees of firm X 25% off of their monthly bill - is it wrong for a summer to get this discount?

They actually told us to take advantage of the Verizon discount at my firm.

You are actually a seasonal employee in all practical and legal sense. If the corporate partner is willing to extend the discount to you as a non-full-time employee then by all means use it.

Verizon knows the terms. Just call them, give them the information they require, and they'll decide whether you qualify. No harm in trying. And your firm won't give a shit. Odds are they won't even know.

We get 30% off divorces at my firm. But if your spouse is also at the firm, then it goes to whoever signs up first.
