NEPOTISM AND NON-SENSE
JUST USED TO IT…
I was told if I came to speak here today that I would be embarrassed. That’s ok, I am just used to it. I have had to take extraordinary measures to protect my identity. It’s ok, I am just used to it. Layers of ignorance have buried the critical facts I seek. That’s ok, I’m used to it. You’re just too different from us. You don’t deserve your voice. You can’t make as much as us because you don’t have kids. We don’t like your friends. You should sell your house and move back home. We don’t need oversight or a board of directors. That’s ok, I am just used to it.
What I am not used to is the ‘small town, no one will see me’ attitude. Probate should be easy. Why is this case all about control and suppression? Why do people try so hard to erase my father’s voice, and yet use his name. Why after three years, very little if anything has actually been ‘BUILT?’ Green Shoots?, squish.
CMM was ALWAYS told that he would run the business, except three main times in my life. When I graduated college, the local economy was in recession. The record shows that I paid for my senior year of college myself. My mom said that my savings at that time weren’t exactly mine, and they were put there by my parents anyway, so it just had to be done. The second was in the late nineties, after CMM left college early. Ask C. Lxxxri’s Father for more information, but it was at this time when I was estimating jobs, and responsible for the finished product. CMM and my father would go home early, sabotaging my endurance. The third time was when I came back to work for MB Paving after S & S Distribution closed. The economy was booming, and CMM got the false impression that he could do no wrong. Many bad habits were formed during this time. Both my father and myself were ‘pushed out.’ So we began prepping jobs together, and CMM just paved. CMM hates to prep, and refuses to put in all of the hard work this job requires. Then, as we know, my father became sick. But whether I worked with someone else, or with my dad, I ALWAYS PREPPED, and CMM JUST PAVED. I just got used to it.
I shouldn’t have to speak here today. This wasn’t my intention. But apparently the truth speaks so loud to people’s ears that it is deafening. In this global village, when the DOL, DEA, DEP, DOT, IRS, ICE, or pick your favorite agency, spots non-compliance on a great enough level, size matters little. Remember Avon Mountain Road and the Death’s caused by non-compliant trucks?
We can just wait because that’s how it always has been, or we can challenge ourselves to do better. Why spend all my money on books? My brains are dried up anyway, and we can not converse about your new thoughts. I am SURE all I say here today will be forgotten as soon as we walk out of this meeting.
It’s ok, I am JUST USED TO IT…
Final Thoughts Before DOL Hearing Bristol Paving Employment Discharge
Facts derived from ‘Know Your Rights,’ Chris Henter 2013
Pg 49: Discrimination is when your employer is treating you differently because you belong to a legally protected group of people.
Pg 87: on retaliation…”Just because you don’t like what the company is to you does not mean you can stop doing your job or stop others from doing theirs. If you feel like you cannot perform your job because of how the company is treating you, then you might need to request some time off and even tell the company about this.” When told that I could be replaced by ten other shovel men and I should ‘Show the boss something,’ and perform another’s concurrent task, I responded that the company should do what it feels like is best, after picking up another rake and finding no work to be done.
Pg 88: ‘the Supreme Court has ruled that if Evil Employer does something that would make a reasonable employee not want to make a formal or informal complaint, then it is likely retaliation.’ Who would think to refuse and complain about bumping out a current employee?
Pg 10: on AT WILL Employment… Just Cause, Malfeasance, Nonfeasance, and Misfeasance are defined as ‘malfeasance would be breaking a company rule, nonfeasance would be not showing up to work, and misfeasance would be really screwing up at work. Would making a single mistake at work satisfy just cause? Normally, no. A minor problem probably does not satisfy just cause.’ I was also told by the owner that, previous to my last day and on more than one occasion, that I did such good work that I had a job over the winter, and next paving season, without qualification of further job qualification or testing. [Government jobs and non at will employment firings are held to good cause, or passing the smell test for fishy reason] Promise of future employment duration unspecified implies a reasonable sense of job security, which is why I am in the situation of no work history recommendation.
MY PROCEDURAL COMPLAINT IS BASED ON THE DOL’S DURATION OF FACT FINDING AND ITS IMPACT ON MY STATUS:
I want to document my impressions of the General CT DOL Hearing Process. My last day of work was 10/2/2013. Although CT is a Right to Work State, and everyone at the DOL has been cordial to me, 26 calendar days is an inordinate amount of time to determine my unemployment insurance availability. I have continued to apply for work at other employers, and I have enclosed my application list. I feel the employee insurance procedure should be broken down into two  phases. The first phase should be to determine employee insurance qualification within the first two weeks of job end. The second to determine the penalty phase and blame assessment. One month of no income is a hardship for anyone. I have also included a copy of my previous employer’s situation. My last job was with my deceased father’s business. It has been in probate for over three years. I am not an officer of this company, and do not receive a paycheck for work performed. The CT DOL knows this. I should not be discriminated against or retaliated for any actions pending or not, or reasons given by unreliable or disqualified sources. One month of no job, no unemployment insurance, and no clarity of work history or accurate work reference assessment could be enough to ruin someone’s local career. I am optimistic for the future outcome, but in the meantime, there is no way to calculate the personal damages, or what the ‘community’ is concluding.
Anthony Maisano III 10/20/2013
prepared for North Branford Probate Court, May 8th 2013
Avvo Rating of Gary Skalver…
Who Are Skalver, Licari and Walsh?
In my opinion, Attorney Sklaver, and his firm, are untrustworthy and unexperienced in the recommendations they produce. They have had a ‘rubber stamp’ from North Branford Probate Court in my family’s probate case for almost four years [yes, in probate for almost four years]. Most important, the firm has done zero financial planning and estate protection. Lies were first perpetrated about my mental, emotional and intellectual health, then the powers of the court were used to conceal many facts about my late father’s [Anthony Maisano Jr.’s] estate. In addition, my mother has had to pump way too much money into the estate due to poor planning.
This week [11/22/2013] she had no heat in her house, waiting to ‘coordinate’ a contractor. Anyone who remembers my father would know that this would NEVER happen while he was alive. Totally unacceptable. I have been used to people around me failing, but they are immobile placeholders. This firm gets paid for their activities, and won’t even list their accurate fees on the probate documentation. A path has been chosen and a captain placed at the helm. Bob Geldof’s advice will be heeded. Stay on dry land and be saved from the Ship of Fools…
Wonder what life would be like without that rubber stamp?
