Verizon Class Action Suit – its time

The time has come and we have plenty of names, stories and plenty of evidence from across the country to go forward in a Class Action Suit against Verizon Communication. Like anything; especially in our US Court System (which is quite corrupted) there is no guarantee of success. But what helps a class action suit is the similar circumstances that caused by a company (here being Verizon) to many victims, (being you in both Union and Management) that caused you any pain and suffering. In a class action suit a victim is not judged my color, religion statue, sexual preference or gender, it is the unified violation here being the Verizon Code of Conduct and the US Laws.

1. What is a class action?
A class action is a type of lawsuit in which the claims and rights of many people are decided in a single case. Specific plaintiffs are named in the lawsuit to assert the claims of the entire class so that everyone with the same claim or injury doesn’t have to file their own separate lawsuit. Also, because they allow people whose damages are too small to warrant an individual lawsuit to try their cases together, class actions can often be the only practical way to stop illegal practices and recover ill-gotten gains. Class action suits have allowed individual people to stand up against the most powerful industries in the world and to hold them accountable for their actions.
You see as many of you have expressed, you are having a hard time taking on Verizon by yourself and many attorneys will not take the case. Why is that? It is because it’s very expensive and Verizon has endless financial resources to drain an average and / or small law firm, it becomes almost impossible to win, but you can win.

Here are a few question and answers for all of you to read in reference to a class action which

2. What types of cases can be brought as class actions?
Employment Class Actions: Employment class action lawsuits are typically brought on behalf of employees of a company for violations of the Labor Code, such as unpaid overtime, failure to provide breaks, as well as claims ranging from safety violations to systematic workplace discrimination.

3. How does a case become a class action?
A class action is generally initiated by one or more people who feel that they, along with a group of other people, have been wronged. A lawyer then files suit on behalf of the individual(s) and the class. At the appropriate time, the lawyer files a motion asking the court to formally recognize the case as a class action. If the court grants that motion, the other people who were similarly wronged are notified of the class action and are given an opportunity to participate in the class action as a member of the “class.”

4. How many people are needed for a class action?
Although it sometimes helps if several people are named as plaintiffs in the suit, a single person is generally enough to file a lawsuit so long as the attorney for the class has a good faith belief that a number of other people were injured in a similar way. It generally takes at least 30-50 people with similar claims, and sometimes many more, to qualify as a class action.

5. How much does a class action cost?
Generally, the lawyer advances all of the costs and fees and, if the lawsuit is successful, petitions the court to award attorney fees and reimburse out-of-pocket costs. If the case is unsuccessful, the plaintiff’s lawyer absorbs the loss.

6. Why would I want my case to become a class action?
People have different reasons for taking part in class actions. Many class members take pride in forcing a giant corporation that is breaking the law to change its ways and in helping to recover often millions of dollars for the other victims. Others bring class actions to recover money that was illegally taken from them, recognizing that they couldn’t afford to pay a lawyer’s hourly fees to bring an individual suit and that their individual claim isn’t large enough to attract a lawyer who works on contingency.

7. Are class representatives entitled to any additional compensation?
If a class action is successful in winning relief for the class, most courts, understanding that class actions can be a powerful tool for consumers’ rights in society and are to be encouraged, provide class representatives with “incentive awards.” Judges are typically given broad discretion in deciding whether these awards are appropriate and in setting the amounts of the awards, which can range from hundreds of dollars to over $50,000. In deciding how much, if anything, to award to the class representatives, courts look at factors such as the amount of involvement of the class representative and the size of the recovery for the class. Typically, the Mills Firm has been able to secure an award of $20,000 for the class representative.

8. How do I choose a class action attorney?
There are many very good class action attorneys in the United States. Because class action law is fairly specialized, you should look for an attorney with significant class action experience. Additionally, because there are many different types of class actions, look for a lawyer who has specific experience in the type of class action you wish to bring. In other words, an attorney who regularly brings consumer class actions might not be the best choice for a securities class action and vice-versa. Finally, it is a good idea to ask any lawyer you’re considering a lot of questions before hiring him or her. For example, you might want to find out if he or she or a subordinate will be the “lead attorney” on your case. You should also ask how many cases the firm is currently handling – is yours going to be one of 30 or one of 300? Make sure you understand what’s expected of you as the class representative, and always insist on a written representation agreement.

Today it’s time for all of you at Verizon to join in and make Verizon Accountable for years of ABUSIVE BEHAVIORS. I am going to file a Class Action Lawsuit against Verizon on behalf of management and union members for:
• Abuse of power
• Intentional infliction causing emotion pain and suffering and physical pain
• Loss of quality of life
• Emotional distress
• Causing and supporting a hostile work environment
• Negligence to correct the action
• Undue Stress
• Willful and malicious abuse causing severe emotional distress
• Creating and supporting an abusive work environment
• And Pain and suffering

So what do we do and from here? It is very hard to do this with one person, and try and locate a law firm all across the country in each state, it would take too long. But if many of us on our own just Google “Class Action Attorneys or Class Action Law Firms”” in each of our own state we can achieve this goal very fast. If we do this from every part of this country we can and will locate a firm to take this case on. You can go on their web sites and get the email for each attorney or partner it’s easy.

Below I will provide a short letter asking if the law firm would like to represent the past and many present victims of Verizon Abusive Behaviors that caused many, such harm.

Once we find a law firm I will post on all the Facebook pages and both my WordPress pages as well as email every newspapers and media sources in the country. I also have the emails of all you CWA / IBEW Union Heads and offices all across the country and have been emailing them information for the past few years as well. Some post and others do not but I will send to all of them anyway. I also will be sending this to all your CWA / IBEW offices as well after this is posted asking them to get this message out as well.

For the employees at Verizon pass this on by word internal emails, text messages and post on union board in every office in the country pass this word on in every way you can.
We are going to use their own Verizon Code of Conduct against them. They printed their laws but never follow them unless it’s convenient for them. It’s time to use it in our favor and expose the truth about Verizon.

USE THIS LETTER and fill in the blanks with the Attorney’s Name or Law Firm, if a Class Action Firm does not specialize in our type of case, they may refer to get a refer fee, so let them decide and just email it out to them:

Dear Attorney ———–,

There are several of us at Verizon from across the country that has evidence to prove that Verizon has treated its employees in a harmful manner that has violated our human rights and the laws of our great country. The abuse has taken place for several years and has caused past and present employees emotional devastation. So today, many of us have decided to reach out across the country looking for a law firm to represent us in a court of law.

We need to know that you have no affiliation whatsoever with Verizon Communication. As this lawsuit will be against them!

It has been too many years that we have suffered from:
• Abuse of power
• Intentional infliction causing emotion pain and suffering and physical pain
• Loss of quality of life
• Emotional distress
• The Causing and supporting a hostile work environment
• Negligence to correct the action
• Undue Stress
• Willful and malicious abuse causing severe emotional distress
• Creating and supporting an abusive work environment
• And Pain and suffering

We are requesting if your firm would represent us on behalf of many managers and union members. We will provide you endless facts, evidence, grievances filed, arbitrations hearings dates and time, deposition to prove it’s not an isolated event and in fact is the culture expected from the top down.

The person leading this class action lawsuit if Mr. Neal W. Dias and you can reach him at: 774-991-4949, justiceatverizon@gmail.com or Justicefor7@yahoo.com. Mr. Dias intern will notify all of us if your firm will represent us and then we will provide you with all the essential evidence, statements and whatever else you need to win this case.

We hope that you and your law firm seriously consider taking on this case, as we need to find a resolution and finally justice for these criminal acts caused by Verizon.

Sincerely yours,

(Your name and contact information)

Everyone, without a doubt, this action demanding a Healthier Work Environment will gain national attention and when we get a law firm to take this on this case will possible make history on change and an Unprecedented Monetary Value, and this is the only way Verizon will listen.

I do believe if it goes forward, it will be the most historic and largest class action law suit in the history of this country again for Verizon for the abusive behavior which has caused so many (in the past and the present) loss of their quality of their life. It is time that we unify together to do this to complaint against them for creating such an intolerable work environment.

So many of you complained for too long and nothing has been done because you have done in on your own but in a group we can win.

Let’s rally around this cause to fight back.

I am starting a fund raiser page to raise money to build a unified web site to help the victims of Verizon’s abusive tactics for both the employees and consumers.

This will be a web site that will house endless information that Verizon has prevented both employees and consumers from having.

The web site cost approximately $1,000 to build and $149 a month to host, as it will be used as a blog page as well. After being a Victim of Verizon, I had no information and guidance in my fight for Justice, so this page will be designed to help so many.

Verizon receives thousands of complaints of abusive behaviors while doing nothing to protect their employees.

Neal Dias (Victim of Verizon)

VERIZON EMPLOYEES – Victims of Verizon

As stated a few weeks ago, I have court records of Verizon management stating some very crucial and damaging information on their policies at Verizon. Things that they hold other Verizon Employees accountable for but when asked under pains and penalties in depositions they downplayed their own Verizon Code of Conduct and their discipline measures. Verizon’s own EEO stated the high level of complaints that come in are basically astronomical.

I completed the list of depositions that I have as they are all managers from Verizon from Massachusetts in various positons but Jim Fennell (from Verizon Legal), Paul McGovern (from Verizon EEO),Debra Lombard (Verizon Corporate Security) and Paul McGovern (Verizon EEO) and company representatives.

The Depositions that I have:
Paul McGovern (Verizon EEO) – 183 pages
Jim Fennell (AOM for I&M / Verizon Legal – 141 pages
Patty Regan (AOM for I&M / FIOS) – 133 pages
Malcome Benvie (1st level manager for I&M) – 147 pages
Laz Lopez (AOM for I&M) – 104 pages
Katherine Bertolino (1st Level manager – Construction office) – 139 pages
Debra Lombard (Verizon Corporate Security) – 87 pages
Robert Glynn (Director) – 127 pages
Paul McCarthy (AOM – Construction) – 197/152 pages (349 pages total).

Staples Charges .10 per copy and I will ship them out of Providence Rhode Island from zip code 02903. So as I stated I do not want any money for this and will be offering up any and all records I have per email for the motions I have on file that I can email to you. The paper copies of these depositions you have to figure out which ones you would like to have, pay for the copies to be made (at .10 per copy), shipping cost (from Providence RI 02903)and the boxes to ship it in from the US Post Office.

I will get them to you no problem at all.

Do send me your request to: Justiceatverizon@gmail.com. This why I can make sure I get them to you, as there has been an overwhelming request to me since I posted this a few weeks ago. The request came in to me my email, Facebook, text and I need to organize this to make sure it’s done right and you get what you need. Provide me all you shipping information and contact information and I will call you to confirm.

Verizon is always in the news for screwing someone:

Verizon Employees

I have something that many of you will be able to use for your fight for justice against Verizon. As you many of you know it’s been a long battle and I loss after 8 years of fighting. My loss was not because of my attorney and her lack of knowledge or preparation for my case and trial, but it was for certain because of Judge Nathaniel Gorton a Federal Courts Judge in Boston Massachusetts that placed well prepared roadblocks in our way just a day before my trial, preventing justice. My attorney won on every front from the depositions, to motions and at the trial, but we did not take home the verdict that we rightly deserved and justice was never served against these Verizon Perpetrators.

So what do I have for all of you?

Well, everything I did was a learning curve and I gained so much knowledge in the process, which I will be sharing in my book that will be released in due time about Verizon, Workplace Bullying and the Process to Justice.

So much time and research was done by myself and my attorneys and why let it go to waste. So what I am offering you is this. I have all the court records in my care, depositions in hand from Verizon Corporate Security, Verizon EEO and other Verizon Managers that state critical information in them that can save your unions halls, your attorneys and union arbitrators so much money and time. You will see how Verizon and their attorneys play their attack and stated things that they discipline and punish you for, but yet stated no great value to importance on.

Good example is this: Many of you have been held to the high standards of the Verizon Code of Conduct and have either been suspended; loss pays, and or been terminated because of these rules. But while I was sitting in depositions in 2011, I heard Verizon state and it was documented in depositions that “the Verizon Business Code of Conduct is just a guideline and downgraded the significance of the Verizon rules as it not to be taken seriously.” This is from management themselves and this is powerful!

So much is in the depositions and there all yours, if anyone ever needs them. For the depositions I cannot afford to make the copies for all of you but if at any time you want the copies and mailed to you, I would go to Staples on my own time and have them copied and mailed to you right from them. You can even call to check the fees and you can pay for it to be done. This is no cost to me and I am making nothing out of it but to help you out, if I can help you win an infraction against Verizon that means the world to me.

Second, all the internet motions and responses from Verizon I have and court documents, I will email them to you directly as I have others that have battles with Verizon as we speak, at no cost to you at all, but just to help you.

My attorney must have done a great job as in December of 2012 Verizon offered me just shy of $500,000 to go away and settle and I told the time —- themselves.

So it’s all yours, if you need these items, just email me what you want and they we can go from there.

Also by the way a class action lawsuit against Verizon is in the making and I am heading this campaign, when I find a firm to take it, I will post it and you can add your name to it.

Soon I will have a streamed line database for all of you to have to access poor managers within Verizon and locate so much critical data on Verizon as employees and consumers, something that was never ever done before and should have.

Sincerely yours,

Neal W. Dias
