One of the things that is commonly told to us when we visit with clients is "the work environment was out of control...too many people doing too much...and the employer just didn't seem to care".
"The employer just didn't seem to care." Those words hit us hard every time. Your job is a source of income, a source of livelihood, and a place that you spend 40+ hours a week in...and the person in charge doesn't care? That's inexcusable to us.
"It was kind of chaotic," he said, adding he feels the plant wasn't very well maintained and it wasn't being run in a professional manner.
He said he witnessed firsthand some of the problems city leaders now are citing as the reason for firing ReCommunity, the North Carolina-based company under contract with the city to operate the plant at 4150 Platt Road.
The 47-year-old maintenance technician said he was on the job only two weeks when he was seriously injured in a Feb. 28 incident at the plant.
Roberts said his left arm was crushed under a piece of equipment weighing more than 500 pounds, and it severed tendons and muscle in his forearm.
He argues ReCommunity created an unsafe work environment without adequate staffing, and he claims the plant manager didn't listen to his concerns.
The plant manager didn't listen to his concerns....does that sound familiar? Far too often, clients tell us about how they notified their employer of something they felt was unsafe at the workplace, yet no action was taken, and an accident occurred.
If an accident does occur, we're here to fight for your rights. Eric, Randy, and Sarah are ready to put their years of experience to work for you...and won't stop until you receive your full and rightful compensation!
