As the year came to a close I thought about the tough road for my family and I have had. We have sacrificed so much, but we will march into 2013 with hope for justice against Verizon. There is not a day that goes by that I don’t look back on the mistreatment I had to endure but I know soon I will have my chance to tell the world what happened.

My father passed away in July of 2012, and I can still hear him tell me how proud he was of me. He knew that I could not allow someone or a company treat me in the manner in which Verizon did, and just walk away. He knew the sacrifices we have had to make because of what Verizon intentionally did to my family and me. He knew how bad we were hurting and only wanted our pain to go away. He wanted to be alive, to one day see my family longer having to struggle. He also wanted to be alive for my trial against Verizon, but he never made that day. There is one thing I do know and that is, he will be there in spirit.

On March 11, 2013 my trial will begin against Verizon. It will take place in the Federal Court House in Boston Massachusetts. This day is something that I have been waiting for, for too long now. This day will be the day that my voice will be heard, and a day that justice will hopefully be granted to my family and me. Either way, my dignity will still be intact and my road to enhancing laws to help workplace bullying victims will take on another role. I will also continue to be the voice for other Verizon employees helping them to seek justice on many unethical, immoral and conspiracies they have covered up.

I can never be denied that I gave it my all, in the pursuit to justice, against one of the most powerful companies in the world. A company that told me to my face, that this day will never happen. They told me that justice will not be in my future simply because they have more money, power and resources to deny me of justice. I knew I could not be silent no longer when I saw the pain in so many lives. I just could not walk away, and let that happen!

One of my all-time favorite people to have ever lived was Dr. Martin Luther King. He once said:

Our lives begin to end, the day we become silent about things that matter.
– Martin Luther King

So as of Tuesday I began to dedicate 100% to preparing for my trial. I took a mental break for some time now as it was well needed, but now the journey towards justice will begin.

I wanted to let all the people that have supported me throughout this journey that I’m not going away. My post will be limited on all the Facebook pages, and blogs only because my time is limited preparing for my trial. If at any time you truly need me, just send me an email or just call. I will only post very important information or changes to major issues until the trial is over.

A week prior to the trial, I will send out a reminder to all of you as many stated that would like to attend the trial. I will also send out a press release as well, to get the trial covered as this case will set precedence to so many within Verizon as well as outside of the company.

I thank you all, and Happy New Year – May God Bless all of us!

As Verizon would say: Making Progress Every Day!

National Workplace Bullying Attorney – Carol Ryder:
Attorney Carol Ryder from New York, NY.
http://carolryderlaw.com/100301.html

If you are a Verizon employee or have a family / friend that is a Verizon employee, please ensure that that see the following message, it is very important!

First I would like to say congratulations on getting another contract to all the Verizon employees.  Security for your family in number one priority!  But now it’s time to take the next step and protect your employment and your family beyond what you can imagine.

In one year’s time I have had the opportunity to witness so many troubling issues within Verizon at a much higher level than I had ever thought existed.  This was because I became the funnel to all their stories.  Why because I decided to expose Verizon for the mistreatment, retaliation, discrimination, and harassment to me and my family one year ago.

Through this, many issues surfaced and I became engulfed in many of them.  These stories I have heard were heartbreaking and so many families torn apart.  I knew at one point I could not turn my back on them, so I decided to lend a hand.  So I took much of this last year maintaining documents, receiving many Verizon court cases, keeping a track record, received numerous depositions, read news articles and answered to thousands of emails, calls and letters from employees at Verizon in both management, union and their family members.

In this investigative process, I found several incidents all across the country that many Verizon employees fall directly into.  You are all saying relatively the same thing, but from a variety of locals, regions and states but your messages are very clear.  You are suffering from bad leadership, poor management, abusive behavior and unethical abuse from Verizon.

Your National Union both CWA/IBEW does not have a tracking record in place to document these occurrences that have happened to past, present or future employees, so they will never know the extent of this to what I now know.

So what I did over these past months was I worked on developing legal support and services for you.  Below are some very specific categories that you as a present or past employee (management or union) fall into.

  • Find one or many categories that you will fall into.
  • Write a brief outline on your situation.
  • Use bullet points to show the issues.
  • Provide your name and full contact information for the Attorney Carol Ryder she is out of New York and will get back to you.
  • Please use her email and do not call her, as she already overwhelmed working on building these class action cases against Verizon already with other National Law Firms Contacts for these cases.
  • Carol.ryder@ymail.com
  • http://carolryderlaw.com/

I do want to express three important things.

  1. This class action in no way benefits me or my case.  I get absolutely nothing out it as I was asked already.  My case is ready for trial, and all the evidence is in.  It was just my calling that I was given this opportunity to help you and so many other employees out all across this country because of what I had suffered through Verizon’s abusive tactics.
  2. Understand this!  Verizon employees 235,000 employees and their EEO officer in Boston Massachusetts Mr. Paul McGovern stated under oath in Federal Depositions that Verizon receives over 104,000 EEO complaints a year.  It is not hard math, this is almost 50 % of the Verizon Employees that had the guts to make a stand which comprise of these numbers.  But as you know being an employee of Verizon, they do not care its business as usual.
  3. Third, a few weeks ago, I ran into someone that I had never met in my life.  I was at my son’s soccer game and I saw a gentleman in a Verizon shirt.  I spoke to him for a bit and he told me a few years ago when he was a manager he received a letter by mistake from the former CEO of Verizon.  It stated that they were offering a bonus any manager that would terminate an employee that had 30 years or over of service to Verizon.  This would help to get the employee off the books and Verizon no longer would have to provide them with any retirement benefits.  He said it was malicious and deceitful.  He said he gave this letter to a certain union office for them to have.  I have spoken to them already about this letter, and I am in process of recovering it.  If anyone else has this letter, just in case we cannot recover it as time has passed– we will pay a good sum to obtain it.  Please contact me or Attorney Carol Ryder, if indeed you also have this email/letter.  If this indeed is true, and I have no reason to have doubted this man, as I never met him, and he shared this with me just out of the blue, this evidence will support many cases across this country proving some very malicious acts from the top down!

Over this past year I have made some very high contacts within Verizon that are willing to come forward to help in exposing Verizon in their abusive treatment when the time is needed.  So let’s keep this momentum of seeking justice – forward.

 

 

LIST OF JUST SOME OF THE VIOLATIONS

Please look at the attached list and see where you fit in. These are complaints people have been making, are violations of various laws, not just the CBA and other agreements, and in many cases , mirrors what other people have stated and proof can be shared between cases*. In most cases, multiple categories apply, and we have a way for you to write down what happened in your case, which makes it actually easier for you and for us to organize and get a number of similarly-situated victims together to get a firm to take on the perpetrators.

As you will see, although your situation does not neatly fit into one category, or many apply to you, you are not alone.

Do any (or many) of these describe your situation:

I. You accidentally or purposely received something from upper management, offering you bonuses for getting rid of certain employees

-This may include, let’s say, e-mails accidentally sent out to all managers directly from the top, offering $10K bonuses for getting rid of workers with over 30 years.

-This may include similar offers and/or commands that you were to get rid of certain classes of employees, usually “pricier” ones, such as those who were forced by their medical conditions or workplace injuries to use FMLA and/or STD, suffered disabilities, a great deal and it appeared they would be filing for a disability pension

-This may include being instructed to do what you have to in order to prevent employees from filing for disability or regular pensions. This may include complaining about bridged time, even if it was bridged years ago and the employee was receiving the benefits of increased NCSD, including vacation time, overtime list listing, time slots on the tour rotations, better access to equipment, etc.

II. You are a manager (or shop steward) and were victimized by workplace bulling, perhaps by being the direct victim and/or being told to victimize others or else become a victim

-This includes, but is not limited to, managers who were harassed, yelled at, had adverse items placed in their personnel files and more for refusing to “set up” or otherwise “crack down” on certain workers.

-This may include higher level managers being relocated to your area, perhaps from Boston or another area, for such purposes (also see I. above-probably both these will apply).

-Similarly, you were a shop steward who stood up for people and were ultimately subjected to      adverse consequences, ranging from disciplinary actions, such as suspension, Steps and/or termination

-They might even come right out and state such, such as the NY case in federal court in NY right now where a certain first-level told some workers about a second level: “John CXXX is here to crack down on workers using FMLA leave…costing $80 mil a year in this building alone” . Subsequently, workers using FMLA were singled out for various adverse employment actions, laws were broken, etc. In that case, another first-level there  became so physically ill from it, and from trying to help victims without getting fired himself (had young kids and a medical condition of his own) he had to take leave and when he returned, was RIFed. In other cases, managers became so ill they even passed away or were so ill they could not return. Strokes, heart attacks, massive damage to the body and the family as well.

III. Victimized by the zero-tolerance policy from absences even though your absences were approved.

-VZ “unlawfully denied reasonable accommodations to…employees and or disciplined and/or fired them under its no-fault attendance plan” [from EEOC v. Verizon-settled-only $20 million, lousy dollar amount among the many people affected, but sets precedent]

http://www.eeoc.gov/eeoc/newsroom/release/7-6-11a.cfm

-These include, but are not limited to:

-Returned from FMLA and/or STD and immediately Stepped and forced to accept “probation”.

You are still working there but know it is a matter of time before they find an excuse

-Returned from FMLA and/or STD and immediately Stepped and placed on “probation”.

They then found a reason to terminate you, although very minor and something very commonly done by co-worker, like getting coffee before the first job rather than after. You are still working there, the termination process/final Step is on-going and termination is likely soon.

-Returned from FMLA and/or STD and immediately Stepped and placed on “probation”. You then were terminated and are awaiting the Arbitration.

-Injured on the job, and Stepped based on zero-tolerance policy once you returned. This may be because they blame you for violating practices and causing your own injury (such as not wearing helmet, perhaps you did have it on but it fell off, then they claim YOU didn’t have it on properly, etc.)

IV. Adverse consequences from making complaints, and/or otherwise whistle blowing

These include but are not limited to:

-Filing grievances

-Filing internal complaints with the Company (such as being one of the 104,000 complaints filed internally with VZ’s EEO Dept.)

-Complaining to outside government agencies, such as the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, OSHA, your state’s equivalent of the NYS Division of Human Rights, etc.

V. Violation of insurance and other laws (such as NYS ISC law)

-This most commonly arises where the disability administrator, usually MetLife, refuses to process your leave OR takes so long you go without pay and/or are forced to return because you can’t afford it and/or THEY oppose your own doctors and state you are “good to go.”

-Insurance co may state you are able to return to work, and/or with no restrictions, despite all your treating doctors stating no. Part of that may involve them sending you to their IME, and “Independent” Medical Examiner, who actually is anything but independent.

-Insurance co might claim certain accommodations for your medical condition are decided by the manager, then the manager claims Met Life does it, and bounces you back and forth

VI. Other workplace bullying, similar to Neal Dias’ case

VII. Other adverse employment practices, including discrimination based on color, ethnicity, sex, disability or other

VIII. Other reasons to believe they are victimizing you (and perhaps others you know) any way they can so as to get rid of workers.

-You feel this might be because you heard through the grapevine they want to get rid of “pricier” workers, such as those using FMLA leave, people with seniority nearing pension collection stages, etc.

-Perhaps you feel it is also a flat-out campaign to rid the company of union workers and other workers, management or non-management/non-union so they may outsource jobs to other countries, use inexpensive labor for jobs that need to be done domestically, such as install cables, and even close divisions or at least, buildings

X. There is a high incidence of cancer and/or other medical conditions in your work locale

This may not be an incident of discrimination but keeps coming up.  Some buildings are loaded with asbestos and other toxins, and never cleaned. Many other work sites, including the poles, are also dangerous to your health.

-Have you had a long duration of working with telephone poles which may have caused a developed in respiratory illnesses or infections and / or cancer?  Were you not provided with respiratory protective gear while setting or working on these telephone poles?

-Are you and/or people you work/worked with coming down with high incidences of diseases such as cancer, lung and other pulmonary and breathing issues, rashes, etc.?

Example: In a case on Long Island, NY, a medical monitoring fund (similar to 9/11 fund) was set up for VZ workers who worked at a site now declared a Superfund site by the EPA who have, or are increased risk of cancer and other diseases caused by VZ.

-In another case, an iconic building was loaded with all kinds of things being pumped through the air vents, and, despite repeated complaints for years by workers, never cleaned. Then 9/11 “dust” was all over the locale, not far from the WTC, and that ended up inside as well. Numerous chronic complaints and medical conditions have been reported from workers at that building, and perhaps other nearby ones, including cancer, asthma and other breathing problems, and more.

XI. Exposure to Carbonless Copy Paper (CCP):

 

Anyone who has worked from 1990 until now, may have worked with, or possibly used or been possibly exposed to Carbonless Copy Paper (CCP).  It is a multi-part form where you write on the top form and the print goes through to one or more copies without carbon paper.  Most service reps, customer service, and related offices, repair, installation etc… would have used or been exposed to (ccp) may be able to file an additional claim against Verizon. The exposure to (ccp) may cause serious adverse health effects, disabilities, birth defects, cancer and death. If you have illnesses from the (ccp) and did not to give such warnings and instead set about to be fired, force to retire, deny benefits to employees they suspected of being harmed by use and exposure to ccp, provide Attorney Ryder with the evidence.

If you have worked with, been exposed to ccp, had headaches, respiratory and skin problems, asthma, RAD, loss of voice, sinus and allergy problems, eye problems , kidney or liver problems, cancers etc. this may apply to you.

 

IMPORTANT: GATHERING PROOF VIA TAPING, INCLUDING CONVERSATIONS,

MEETINGS AND MEDICAL EXAMS, AND PHONE CALLS

-Please continue to acquire documentation, tapes and other proof regardless. Big corporations have a knack for knocking out proof, causes of action, etc., flat-out lying in Discovery and using other legal tactics NOT to give up the information required by law in investigations and lawsuits, and once you are gone, or already had a medical exam by their IMEs, certain opportunities (such as taping) are gone

TAPING LAWS:

-Key points here: Taping: NY, NJ, and VA, and a majority of states, are one-party taping states. Cal, CT and a few other states are two party states. See below links for more information** and to check if your state is one.

This means you can record conversations, exams, calls, etc. as long as one party gives consent, which happened to be you. You cannot wiretap; use a recording device, etc. without at least the consenting party there.

-Buy a separate up loadable recorder (about $40-on the shelf in Radio Shack and many other places such as WM) with the microphone on top (can put in breast pocket) about $40. You can then upload the tapes to your PC. Don’t rely on your phone 100%.

-Another caveat: Nevertheless, do not put it past defendants to illegally intercept calls, e-mails, plant bugs, etc. They may not be permitted to use the information (known as “fruit of the poisoned tree”) but they have been known to use what they learned to gather evidence another way. Yes, it is still fruit of the poisoned tree but you need to show the tree was poisoned and even then, they can argue they just happened to have Pis outside legally. For example, they may not be able to use a tape of a person claiming disability due to surgery setting up times to meet friends to go do something heavily physical, like water skiing. However, the defendants can and will gather information about your water skiing, have the private investigators follow you to the Marina and take pictures and videos at the marina, etc.

***Taping rules:

http://www.aapsonline.org/judicial/telephone.htm

http://www.citmedialaw.org/legal-guide/recording-phone-calls-and-conversations

Independent Medical Exams-IMEs and TMOs-be prepared and tape

If you are sent to an IME, and “independent” medical exam by the company, VZ or even the Third Medical Option, tape the exam AND bring a witness, preferably one with a buttonhole camera. The witness should take notes carefully. Note this applies ANY time you have to get an exam, perhaps from the auto carrier, for Worker’s Comp, etc.

-Also, research the doctor and review your own files. Know where Insurance is looking. For example, if your complaints are disk problems in your back, focus on what you need to do to show the IME never even lifted your shirt.

For example: Typical case: Insurance companies’ middleman, MCN (Medical Consultants Network), sends the IME, in advance, a 4 page document that he just had to sign off on. Insurance company had already sent documents claiming the person was being watched for possibly fraudulently claiming disability (I guess 20+ operations, including heart surgery, even cancer, don’t count). IME claimed he examined the back but a witness statement and the tape showed he never even lifted the shirt. When asked for his office notes, he claimed he throws them out once he “dictates” the letter to MCN. He knew in advance what they were looking to attack so you should also know.

-IMEs admit they wouldn’t get the cases sent to them if they didn’t rule for the Insurance Company. The IME business  is very lucrative-they take 20 minutes, including prep and signing off on the report, tops, and they get paid 20X what they would have gotten from a regular medical exam covered by your insurance carrier under your health insurance.

-Do the same thing even if the exam is a Third Medical Opinion (“TMO”-union should let you know). TMOs are supposed to be a “tie-breaker” between your physicians and the IME, and are supposed to be fair. However, their 85% pass rate is below the IME’s 92% fail rate. Additionally, the TMO opinions often vary from your treating providers in how severe your medical condition is, when you can return, if you can work with accommodations such as a desk job, etc.

National Workplace Bullying Press Conference in Washington DC at the National Press Club

National Workplace Bullying Press Conference in Washington DC at the National Press Club

Held on October 15th 2012

This past Monday I had the opportunity to speak at the National Workplace Bullying press conference in Washington DC.  I was honored to have been invited to attend and speak at the prestigious event conducted by Dr. Gary Namie “The President of Workplace Bullying Institute (WBI).”

National Workplace Bullying Press Conference in Washington DC  October 15th 2012

http://www.workplacebullying.org/freedom-week/freedom-week-wbi/

 

http://www.workplacebullying.org/2012/10/11/fw-npc/

 

http://uspolitics.einnews.com/pr_news/118659159/national-leaders-support-freedom-from-workplace-bullies-week-mary-kay-henry-seiu-hilary-o-shelton-naacp-mg-taguba-ppalm

 

Dr. Namie is heading a National Healthy Workplace Bill to help ensure that one day there will be healthier workplaces throughout this country is indeed achieved.  The bill in is presently in 21 states and it is called “The Healthy Workplace Bill.”  With the help of Dr. Namie and so many hardworking advocates all across this country, one day with great anticipation we will see this bill, placed into law.  Of course this this cannot be achieved without the help from our politicians.

I sit here today 48 hours later from this exhausting trip, feeling to reward for my historical contribution to this very important cause.  I had the opportunity talk about what Verizon had done to me, and so many other employees.  I spoke about the truths if how we all have suffered ruthless and unacceptable attacks from this unethical company.  I could never tell 8.5 years of living hell, in 5 – 10 minutes time but I tried to highlight the facts.  The video will be posted on YouTube shortly and I will release it as well.  Future interviews, conferences and other post will continue as I move forward in this cause.   

After you leave such an event, and head back home on an 8 hour train ride home, you have so much time to think.  I thought about what I had said, and wished I could say more.  I thought about the stories that I have heard, and shed more tears for these victims who are in so much pain.  I thought about the people that I had sat with, only to know they suffer internally to an extent no person on earth can truly define.  I thought about the ones that had so much courage and leadership to say I will suffer no more abuse at work and refused to no longer tolerate these abusive behaviors any longer.

I thought about coming back home knowing there will be piles of bills that cannot be possibly paid because of the loss of my income at Verizon.  I thought about my health eroding from inside, and I have tirelessly fight for justice.  Total destruction of my life, because I did what I was supposed to, and was to stand up to injustice at VERIZON, and then I became a target for doing God’s work.

I thought about life and what it now means to so many. 

During that day in Washington DC, as I sat there watching so many people that day.  As they walked by me at the train station, on the train, on the streets, in their cars, working, I saw very few smiles.  I saw very few people loving what they did, or were they were going.  How many people become robots of life, just synchronized into just going about life!

How many of those people I saw with my eyes in 24 hours, have suffered from hostile work environments, being bullied, harassed at work or other inappropriate behaviors at all.  How many hate the jobs or wish they could love what they do. 

Monday’s conference on workplace bullying issues was simply an historical event.  I believe that advocates fighting for this healthy workplace bill are people with tremendous heart and courage.  They know the future of our children lives in the chosen career fields depend on these hard working advocates, to set in motion a protection that ensures a safer and healthier workplace.

May God continue to give them all the strength it takes to defeat evil and restore one’s life and dignity in the workplace?

As Verizon would say: Making Progress Every Day!

 

“The only thing necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing.”

NY Disability Attorney Files Class Action Lawsuit Against Verizon for Potential Cancer Victims

As detailed in Newsday today, Mitchell Breit of the national class action law firm of Whatley, Drake & Kallas and the disability law firm of Turley, Redmond & Rosasco have filed a “medical monitoring” class action lawsuit against Verizon in New York Supreme Court, County of Brooklyn, for workers who previously worked at the former Sylvania nuclear fuel rod plant in Hicksville, Long Island. Verizon previously settled a lawsuit by surrounding residents for a reported 11 million dollars due to an increased rate of cancer in the area.

The lawsuit follows a recent decision by the New York State Workers’ Compensation Board which found that a worker on the site, Gerard DePascale, developed a rare and deadly cancer (extra-skeletal myxiod chondrosarcoma) as a result of exposure to toxins on the site. In addition, a recently released Army Corp of Engineers report found danger to the public by this still contaminated site. Despite special federal funding won by Senator Chuck Schumer for a complete clean-up of the site, legal wrangling between Verizon, the Army Corp and the New York State Department of Environmental Protection have put a stop to the clean-up. How many more people have to come down with cancer before Verizon does the right thing?

The lawsuit seeks to force Verizon to set up a “medical monitoring” fund so that the thousands of workers who were unknowingly exposed to the toxins on the site can benefit from early diagnosis and treatment of any potential medical problems. As detailed in the Newsday story today, workers like Robert Matteo are mad that they were never told of the dangers on their work site.

Unfortunately, Gerard DePascale, whose cancer has now spread to his lungs, is still waiting a final ruling from the New York State Workers Compensation Board. Despite winning his case in front of trial judge Abigail Chanis in March 2007, his employer appealed the judge’s decision. He has now been out of work with no workers’ compensation benefits since January 2006! The abnormally long delay in deciding this appeal is causing the DePascale family severe financial hardship. Thankfully, with new leadership at the Workers’ Compensation Board, a decision in Mr. DePascale’s case hopefully will be expedited.

My Thoughts – By Neal W. Dias

N.Y. gunman described as quiet, friendly neighbor

On Friday morning a 58 year old man in New York by the name of Jeffrey Johnson, returned to his place of business that he was fired from just one year ago, and killed a 41-year-old Steve Ercolino, a former Hazan colleague.

I listed through that day and into Sunday morning August 26th and very few still don’t have a clue.

It is normal and right for us all to feel for the victim and the bystanders that were hurt and killed in the cross fire. My heart and prayers go out to them. But it is time we get to the answers of why this happened? It is the only way we can help, stop this from happening.

Usually those hidden answers get crowed up by the gun and non-gun controllers. It gets twisted in the overwhelming media blitzes and people making all kind of assumptions and guesses.

All too often we listed and not hear, but it is not the voices we need to hear to receive the answers we need to seek – for this puzzled situation. The answers to why this happened were right in the minutes following the murder at the Empire State Building on Friday morning on August 24, 2012.

Every paper, every radio and news station was claiming that Mr. Johnson Returned to his former employment after a year of getting let go. They stated that he was let go from his position a year ago. Just like me and many others, the companies try to cover up their malicious ways of getting rid of a targeted employee in what they call a “RIF – Reduction in Force.”

Mr. Johnson returned one year later because there was a great possibility that his life fell apart in so many ways. He got seriously depresses, and he had nothing to live for. As he sat there in his home / apartment he consistently found himself thinking of the person that help to manifest this failure in his life.

When I heard he returned one year later, I knew how he felt and what he was thinking. I knew in my mind that this man was some how involved in some type of bulling at work, and was targeted, then let go. I felt a strong possibility that Mr. Steve Ercolino and Mr. Johnson had some bad blood at the employment and this was one or many years of the build up animosity, and Mr. Johnson just could not take it anymore. I do not know what he was going through financially but when you are in a financial hardship, and you know it was caused by others as you were a targeted person, let go for unjust reasons, it’s very hard to accept you and your family’s lives crumbling around you and not want to act out. I can understand his emotional thought process, but I will never accept violence as the answer. I have been there, but decided to out reach to help others in Mr. Johnson and my situation not to result to any form of Violence.

Workplace Bulling, will continue to destroy lives each day, in more ways than anyone wants to admit it. What Mr. Johnson did, hundreds to possibly thousands “THINK” of doing to their Bullying Managers / Co-Workers each day. Few actually act out as they come to reason, or they feel it’s not worth it. But the ones that have nothing to loose as they have nothing, these targeted victims of workplace bullying will act out.

I know, because I have lived in Mr. Johnsons shoes. I am so sorry for Mr. Jeffry Johnson and Mr. Steve Ercolino, as they were having issues at work, reporting them and “NOTHING” was done about it. Both families are destroyed because of NEGLECT.

I worked at Verizon and companies like Verizon often Neglect to stop their perpetrators’ from acting out in a malicious manner with intent to harm and or destroy lives.

Just like at Verizon, there are many ongoing criminal acts, workplace bullying, racism, sexual harassment, a manifested hostile work environments and so many other immoral and unethical issues that go on, reported and ignored. Verizon’s EEOC has reported that they receive over 104,000 complaints a year, that’s not including so many other unreported issues that Verizon employees are afraid to report due to retaliation. Verizon is no different than other companies as well, and this cannot go on any longer. How many more people have to get killed at work, how many more good employees have to have emotional breakdowns, how many more people have to kill themselves and how many more lives have to be destroyed before we say: “Enough is Enough – Stop Workplace Bullying?”

On Friday August 24, 2012 I felt compelled to add a comment on an article that was posted in Yahoo. The headline and article said:
N.Y. gunman described as quiet, friendly neighbor
By Daniel Bases | Reuters – Fri, Aug 24, 2012

Neal • Swansea, Massachusetts • 1 day 10 hrs ago
People often wonder why someone would do this? Why would this man return to a job 1 year later and kill as person he worked with? We often are shocked by the outcome, but there are unanswered questions. Someone said he was fired so what? Well we do not know how much this man suffered while working with this company and apparently by this other person? We do not know how bad his life sunk because of what he lost? Apparently he was pretty pissed off to shoot someone in the head. This without a doubt is very tragic and sad, but we as a nation need to understand that this is often a result of Workplace Bullying. In schools children kill themselves, in corporate America, workers kill their former employees. When we decide to make Workplace Bullying a law, acts like these will begin to decrease. “Enough is Enough – Stop Workplace Bullying” and stop violent acts like this.

What made me get up today and write this to you was only two days later I saw what I had already felt. Mr. Jeffry Johnson and Mr. Steve Ercolino had long issues at work, and it was reported. So much more will come of this investigation but the facts were there.

Something was done though, and based on the outcome of this death, we will possibly see that it was Mr. Jeffry Johnson was the victim in this Workplace Bullying, and was Wrongfully Terminated. He had no legal recourse as was not a part of a protected class, and there was NO law in effect to help this man out.

I have spoken on these exact issues in New York, Massachusetts and Connecticut, and in all three States, “The Healthy Workplace Bill” was not passed this past session. In fact the most recent speech I gave at the “Civil Rights and Anti-Bullying Leadership Summit in Hartford Connecticut at the Legislators Building, August 9, 2012” was exactly on employees killing their peers at work as a result of Workplace Bullying.

WBI – The Workplace Bullying Institute

When shootings have workplace connections

Here we go again America – another gun killing. This time, the shooter, Jeffrey Johnson, targeted a specific individual, Steve Ercolino. He gunned him down outside the Empire State Building. Johnson was let go one year ago from Hazan Imports, a small firm that designs handbags, where Ercolino was VP of sales.

After Johnson shot Ercolino twice, he left the scene and was followed by construction workers. When the police reached Johnson, he pulled his gun and the police killed him.

This might be an incident in which the shooter was a former bullied target. In a 2012 WBI survey, 41% of bullied targets reported that they “understand how a person could be driven to hurting or killing those who had bullied them.” Most shootings don’t involve bullying or bullied targets. Here’s the basis for my speculation.

My speculation is based on two reported facts. CNN reported that two men had a long-standing dispute at work. Each had filed harassment claims against the other. Since they were both men, and unless there were racial differences between the two, the harassment would not have met the criteria for illegal discriminatory harassment. That would have made the claims about bullying, the form of harassment that is legal when both parties are the same gender or same race. So, there might have been bullying of one by the other at the root of their “dispute.”
The second important fact is that Ercolino was walking to work with Irne Timan. She saw Johnson emerge from hiding behind a white van when the two neared. Timan told the NY Times reporters: “I saw him pull a gun out from his jacket, and I thought to myself, ‘Oh my God, he’s going to shoot him’ — and I wanted to turn and push Steve out of the way,” Ms. Timan said, in a telephone interview from the precinct house where she was being interviewed. “I knew it; I just knew it was going to happen. But it was too late. Steve screamed, Jeff shot him, and I just turned and ran.”

Her report confirms the animosity Johnson felt toward Ercolino. In the aftermath, there will much soul searching about what could have been done differently at Hazan. Human resources should be asked to provide evidence they had tried to resolve the Johnson-Ercolino “dispute.”

Clearly, Johnson blamed Ercolino for his job loss. After a year with no work to fuel the resentment, Johnson made a decision he thought was the only option available to him. From the outside looking in, we know he had other options. But we were not in Johnson’s shoes. CNN’s lead sentence condemned the man as a “disgruntled former worker.”

Employers have the right to terminate based on economic necessity. But the methods of separation are worth considering prior to severing people. Layoffs can lead to destitution, lost homes, lost access to health care, strained family relationships. A little advance planning sprinkled with a dose of compassion could preclude standard resentments. Decisions have consequences.

Was Johnson given a severance? Was his unemployment denied? Was there no extension of benefits? Was he given bad references, making the next job impossible to get? We simply don’t know right now.

In the end, only Jeffrey Johnson was responsible for the tragedy he brought to the Ercolino and the families of all the people wounded in the process.
http://www.workplacebullying.org/2012/08/24/target-as-shooter/

One day, a law will pass, so we can help to force adult to get along with each other, while at work. We can then help educated each company, on the repercussions of this terrorizing and destruction of an illness to out country, called Workplace Bullying. I know I have made it my passion to do so.

As my message of “Enough is Enough – Stop Workplace Bulling” is getting out there, the momentum of what we have to do will hopefully change lives. One message at a time, but in realty it’s all about RESEPCT!

Progression—-

Verizon employees, over time I have been working endless ours behind the scenes on things that will create such a momentum for the rights and victims of Verizon’s abusive behaviors.

One of the most important things I had to do for the victims of Verizon was to seek out an attorney for you. This attorney will be a National Contact in the fight for justice against Verizon and for others for seeks assistance and justice. The attorney that I had to choose for you, not only have the intelligence, passion and heart to take on Verizon, but the guts that it really takes to do this job. Verizon is dishonest and will do just about anything they can do to lie in the process of destroying lives, the lives of their own employees. The same employees, which are working hard for Verizon’s profit which Verizon earns each day, off the backs of good hardworking employees. All these employees want is what I wanted, RESPECT!

Attorney Carol Ryder and I are working on something enormous which will make a major dent into Verizon throughout the country. This is not about revenge, it’s about justice and it’s about time!

Attorney Carol Ryder out of New York and I have teamed up on a project not only to help the victims of Verizon Workplace Bullying, but victims in other companies that are being bullied as well. We will start with Verizon as this is something we both are very passionate about as well as failure with. Having access to thousands of Verizon employees this will help to spread the word.

Attorney Carol Ryder and I are linking up with attorneys all over the country to unify this fight. A database will be created, similar to the one I will hopefully be building for the IBEW / CWA in the future. The database will document every case, and every abusive and unethical act across the country that has happened within Verizon. With this, well documented events, it will help many in their fight for justice against Verizon. It is sad that we have to waste out lives and time doing this, but Verizon has failed us all as it was their job to police their perpetrators but decided to cover them up instead.

I cannot go into great detail right now, as things are progressing. There is hope for the ones who feel they are beaten down by this monster and vicious company called “Verizon!”

One day, you will have justice, and you will have peace at work.
Please look at the link that I provided below, and read the story that Attorney Carol

Ryder has posted.
