I feel so bad for this poor guy. I can truly sympathize with him.

How does one leave a comment?

Toward the top, just under the headline, to the right of the social media links, click the little speech bubble to comment.

I know. When I hit the submit button, a menu appears to the right. I think it wants me to pay to subscribe or else it is my tablet it doesn’t like.

It was a demeaning and menial job to begin with, yet he STILL got fired.

This way to the ovens.. it’s only civil and regulatory.

And remember… it’s not punitive!

There’s no evidence that an RC has any more trouble than any other citizen.

There is nothing demeaning in keeping the streets sanitary or buildings safe. The coworkers just want to see him suffer. He’s the painted bird.

That is a wrongful termination lawsuit right there.

They hired him without a criminal background check. They also didn’t ask about his criminal history on the application. He was hired.

They let him go immediately following getting information by vigilantes who thought he shouldn’t be working there. If I were him, i’d be finding a good lawyer right about now to go after those who alerted the employer for creating a situation where one didn’t exist, costing him his job, as well as going after the city for wrongful termination.

I believe this might be a good case.

In NY they can use criminal record against in hiring only if you’re a danger to others/it directly effects your job (embezzlement/accounting, etc)… Except if they don’t ask you don’t have to tell them – I think they violated article 23-a

I hate to hear this happening to this guy and am going to add it to my motion as evidence of the punitive nature of the registry but it does say he lied on his application if not directly then by his omission when he didn’t mark the conviction in the app. Unfortunately that is legally a justified reason for termination..I think it’s totally unjustifiable myself and really feel for the guy but I bet unless he challenges the registry and sues the people responsible for putting him on the registry and implying he is a danger to the public… Read more »

Have to wonder if they have a don’t mark the box rule in place though when he did not mark the box on the app.

Got to love those employees who ratted him out. Wonder if they were denied the job when they applied.

Got to agree this is a wrongful termination lawsuit possibly here

Ommision isn’t illegal in NY – if they don’t ask you don’t have to tell them. Its all under article 23-a

Mayor sounds really proud of his decision to keep this guy out.
Registry Rage, you’re so right with this statement…..
“This way to the ovens.. it’s only civil and regulatory.”

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
