I wrote it and it's true; every word. No attorney will take the case. they say that wrongful discharge is next to impossible to win in Tulsa. Tulsa is a pro business anti employee town.
Unethical Business Practice in Tulsa OK
Real Estate Services, Worldwide
Management an Office Park in Tulsa OK is guilty of unethical treatment of employees. In November of 2012, management ended the employment of their lead engineer, while he was on workers comp. The property manager; did not inform the engineer that his employment had ended until March 2013, when the doctor released him to work. In fact, she continued to act as the employer in Dec, Jan, Feb, and even in March by handling the doctor/patient reports that were sent to the workers comp. insurance company. When the engineer returned with a release from the doctor,(March 4,2013) he was informed that the company changed receivership in Nov. 2012. Because of this change he lost his job. Management also said that technically he was never an employee for the company. In addition to this despicable behavior, the property manager and real estate service are now acting in ways that prevent the engineer from obtaining new employment. They refuse to sign a reference letter for him, and will not provide prospective employers with employment information over the phone. To add insult to injury, on Dec.20, 2012 (one month after the employment ended) the property manager sent a fax to verify that the engineer was a full time employee at company, to the apartment manager where he signed a one year lease. The engineer had to skip out on lease, jeopardizing his credit. Management could have prevented this by telling the truth. Tools were stolen, while the engineer was on workers comp. They refuse to replace these personal tools.
This engineer possibly saved lives and property at the office park back in 2011. In Dec. of that year, there were cranes in the parking lots, replacing heat and air units on the roof tops. The engineer was hired in Oct. 2011, During his first month on the job, he discovered the heating systems were in a dangerous state of disrepair, caused by years of neglect, under the current management at the office park. Because of the engineers leadership on this project, 40 roof top HVAC units were replaced on two four story buildings. While working seven days per week, 12 – 16 hours each day on this project, the engineer was injured, and was unable to complete the inspection of systems on all buildings. So, it is still unknown if the other eleven office buildings at the office park are safe. But, because most of the HVAC systems on all buildings at this office park are 40 years old, like those that were replaced, and proper maintenance has been left undone for years, there is reason for great concern. The old units that were replaced were discharging carbon monoxide in to the occupied spaces. Any one of these units could have exploded, causing a chain reaction, destroying property and causing death. The engineer also discovered that many building exhaust fans did not work, and were still not working when he became injured. WARNING: If you have headaches, dizziness, or unexplained illnesses, you may wish to be tested for carbon monoxide poisoning, mold related illness, or some other illness caused by poor indoor air quality. Sick building syndrome can be the cause of serious health problems, including legionnaire disease.
Because of emails, concerning the replacement of the stolen tools, the manager has filed stocking charges against the engineer, and requested a protective order. Court date scheduled 4/30/2013.
