Record of Abuse and Harassment

This is a list of Malicious Intentional Harassment’s and Law / Regulation Violations by Code 902 primarily committed by Linda Curley and Judy Runquist. I am not at this point including the fact that I was illegally and unlawfully RIFFED into the position in Code 902 because of a previous on the job injury in 1992.

  1. On 14 May 1997 through 23 May 1997 one of my sons became very ill with strep throat that had progressed into scarlet fever. I was re-infected and a carrier and I had also had a sinus infection. My wife was very ill and unable to attend to my son (see #2 below). I called in initially to Mrs. Curley and periodically throughout this time updating as events progressed. Upon my return on 1 July 1997 I submitted a leave request for sick leave signed and verified by my physician. If my supervisor or her supervisor would have followed the regulations, she should have informed me about Family leave assistance but she did not. Nothing more was said or done until 31 July 1997 (a month later) when the leave slip was returned to me as disapproved and I was listed as disapproved AWOL. I grieved this issue and 902 has seemed to bury it.
  1. Code 902, Linda Curley in direct violation of both State and Federal laws and unlawfully assumed the position of licensed physician and directly overruled a leave slip signed by a licensed physician concerning a critical potential life threatening medical condition.
  2. This action was a malicious intent and direct example of harassment. Code 902, Linda Curley violated each and every item in CFR 29 825.112 designed to afford protection both the employer and employee relating to Family Medical Leave and the required posting of this information.

 

  1. On 27 May 1997 through 30 June 1997 my wife had several surgical procedures due to uncontrolled internal and external bleeding. She was also incapacitated due to depravation of blood and blood oxygen levels. With 3 school children and a 4 month old grandson at home I was desperately needed. I called in initially to Mrs. Curley and periodically throughout this time updating as events progressed requesting leave without pay. Upon my return on 1 July 1997 I submitted a leave request for Family Assistance Leave after another employee told me that day about Family Leave. Several days later Mrs. Curley advised me that a letter from the physician would be required. On 9 July 1997 I obtained a letter and submitted it from the physician stating that it was medically necessary for my attending my wife. During this time while caring for my very sick wife, as a form of harassment. I had a letter sent to my home stating that leave without pay would no longer be granted even though they knew that I had hundreds of hours of leave buy back that were being processed. Nothing more was said or done until 31 July 1997 (a month later) when the leave slip was returned to me as disapproved and I was listed as AWOL. I grieved this issue and 902 has seemed to bury it. Note: my job at the time of leave was pulling staples out of papers so I hardly think my job function at the time was critical.
  1. Code 902, Linda Curley violated each and every item in CFR 29 825.112 designed to afford protection both the employer and employee relating to Family Medical Leave and the required posting of this information.
  2. Code 902, Linda Curley in direct violation of both State and Federal laws and unlawfully assumed the position of licensed physician and directly overruled a statement written by a licensed physician concerning a critical potential life threatening medical condition. This action was a malicious intent and direct example of harassment by Code 902.
  1. On 1 July, 1997 I verbally requested and was granted 1 hour of Annual / Family leave to walk outside the gate of my place of employment. This was to meet with my attorney sign a power of attorney for my mother-in-law to assist with decisions concerning an emergency that could arise during the time I was at work and she was at my home caring for my wife. Nothing more was said or done until 31 July 1997 (a month later) when the leave slip was returned to me as disapproved and I was listed as AWOL. I grieved this issue and 902 has seemed to bury it
  1. Code 902, Linda Curley violated each and every item in CFR 29 825.112 designed to afford protection both the employer and employee relating to Family Medical Leave and the required posting of this information. Also on the leave request I listed it as Annual leave which does not require justification nor does it have a signature place for an attorney. This action was a malicious intent and direct example of harassment by Code 902.
  1. On 9 July 1997 I had a follow-up doctors appointment in the AM. My appointment was changed to PM at the last minute as I explained to my supervisor Linda Curley on 10 July 1997. On 10 July 1997 I filled out and turned in a leave slip for 4 hours of Annual leave in addition to 4 hours of sick leave. Nothing more was said or done until 31 July 1997 when the leave slip was returned to me as disapproved and I was listed as AWOL. I grieved this issue and 902 has seemed to bury it.
  1. Also on the leave request I listed was Annual leave which does not require justification although it was given. This action was also a malicious intent and direct example of harassment by Code 902.
  1. On 17 and 18 July 1997 I requested and was granted leave. I requested this leave because my job injury left leg was swelling and painful. I wanted to see my OWCP orthopedic surgeon in Seattle. I was not able to get an appointment so the advice nurse suggested I stay off my leg and elevate it for a few days. As a result of not being able to see my doctor I chose to use Annual leave. The swelling reduced on the second day it was only necessary to take 2 days. My supervisor was previously aware that my leg was bothering me. Nothing more was said or done until 31 July 1997 when the leave slip was returned to me as disapproved and I was listed as AWOL. I grieved this issue and 902 has seemed to bury it.
  1. The leave request was for Annual leave and does not require justification although it was given prior to the leave. This action was also a malicious intent and direct example of harassment by Code 902.
  1. In July I noticed that the elevator a lot of employees rode up and down to the third floor was broken and was potentially dangerous. I informed my supervisor about the elevator problem and made a sign warning everyone and posted it at the elevator opening. A few hours later she brought a piece of paper to me stating that I had been warned by my supervisor that the elevator was not working properly and made me sign it. I was the only employee required to sign a statement.
  2. In July when I got to work my supervisor walked by me and asked how I was, (she knew that my wife was ill). I told her I didn’t feel very well but I wasn’t running a fever and I would be fine to work. About a half an hour later she walked up to me and told me to go to the dispensary to see if I was fit for work. I told her that I was ok and then she ordered me to go. I went and they said I was fine to work.
  3. On 28 July I had a fire that destroyed my smokehouse and the north wall of my storage building. I requested and took 2 days Annual leave to clean up and repair the damage to my storage building. Several employees I worked with saw the damage from the fire and helped me repair it. My supervisor later disapproved the leave and put me on AWOL because I didn’t have a written statement from the Fire Department. It was not a huge flame throwing fire and it was not necessary to call the fire department.
  4. In August, 1997 my son’s had purchased baseball tickets for my birthday. They gave them to me in the PM as a surprise. Early in the AM the next morning I tried to call my supervisor and her answering machine was not working. At that time I had been loaned to another Code (106) and had been working for them. I called my Code 106 supervisor and explained that I could not phone my regular supervisor. He told me there was absolutely no problem because my work was well caught up and said that he would contact her and to have fun. My regular supervisor a few weeks later disapproved the leave and listed it as AWOL.
  5. September 1997. Supervisor did not like the wording by my physician on a leave slip I had submitted in July. In front of my chief union steward I requested 3 hours of leave to go to the doctor (50 minute drive each way) and have the slip filled out again the way she wanted it. She gave her permission in front of both of us. A few weeks later she returned the leave slip to me as disapproved as AWOL stating that she and Judy Runquist changed their mind.
  6. On the last two occasions she brought all of the grievance denials to me, 30 September and 19 October, I requested my Union steward to be present. This is guaranteed according to the labor contract and both times she ignored my requests and just dropped in where I was on loan to. Each time she tried to get me to go into a private conference room to discuss them and both times I refused and insisted on discussing them with other workers around.
  7. Concerning her 19 October visit. She was visibly upset because I would not meet with her in a private conference room, and that I requested we talk in the open at my desk. She seemed very nervous and was constantly looking around as she was speaking. Approximately 45 minutes after she left two shipyard policemen came in and walked up to my desk and tore my badge off my shirt. They asked me why I was raising my voice and threatening my supervisor when she was there earlier. I couldn’t believe what I was hearing. They scared me to death and made me sign a statement saying it wasn’t true and then left. After I calmed down it came to me what she was up to and why she wouldn’t call my union steward for the meeting and why she was nervously looking around. She was setting me up. The problem with her plan was that the person I sit next to was sitting about 4 feet from us slightly behind his bookcase and she did not know he was there. He heard every word my supervisor and I were discussing and knew that she was lying to the police. He called the chief of police and told him it was not true and Dan wrote a statement stating she lied. The key here is that Dan Martin is one of the most respected and honest people in the shipyard and known by almost everyone.
  8. November 3 through 7, I was very ill with an infection. Upon return to work I provided the required medical justification and my supervisor ended up charging me AWOL for acceptable justified leave.
  9. On November 21 1997 I was working an odd shift for Code 106 so that I could take care of personal business in Seattle. Another car ran a red light and forced me off the road. I hit a divider and had a flat tire. I did not have a spare and ended up having to walk to a Goodyear tire store to get it fixed. It could not be fixed so I had to purchase a new tire and they did not accept out of town checks. I had to walk to a branch of my bank (14 blocks) withdraw money and walk back to the tire store and purchase the tire. I called my supervisor on her answering machine and as a back up I called the Code 106 supervisor I was working for. I got statements from several people as to what happened (they thought I was nuts). I was charged AWOL for this time even though I had the proof.
  10. On December 1 through 10 I was very ill with strep and sever sinus infection. Upon returning to work I provided the necessary signed documentation from the doctor and my supervisor charged me AWOL for acceptable justified leave.
  11. On December 15 through 19 I was required to care for my sons and wife that had gotten strep throat from me as they were very sick. Upon return I requested family medical leave and submitted the required paperwork from physician and my supervisor charged me AWOL.
  12. On December 22 1997 my son was in a very bad automobile accident in Port Orchard requiring hospitalization for a severe head injury. I was off one day with this and was charged AWOL even though I followed all procedures.
  13. In the area of September, 1997 I finally after many noted shipyard admitted errors received several hundred hours of leave bought back from my previous injury. This negated many hours of AWOL Mrs. Curley and Judy Runquist had placed me on and trying to discipline me for.
  14. On December 24, 1997 my chair broke in half in front of several whiteness and I fell forward onto the cement floor injuring my shoulders, left leg and cutting my right leg.
  15. During the Christmas forced closure (shipyard shut down) I received a letter of reprimand for unapproved leave (AWOL) in the mail on December 27, 1997 stating that she had discussed it with me on 24 December 1997 and I had 5 days to appeal it. Mrs. Curley was on leave the 24th of December and could not have possibly discussed it with me. She sent it out maliciously knowing that the shipyard was closed and there was ho way I could meet the time frame. Merry Christmas!
  16. Upon my return to work on 5 January 1998 I stated that I was going to appeal it anyway. She told me that there was a clerical error and not to worry about it.
  17. I went to the dispensary that first day the shipyard reopened and reported my injuries I had received on 24 December and filed a claim. My legs had both gotten worse and my right leg had developed cellulitis from the cut. I went to my regular physician Dr. Hogness the next day and I was placed on IV antibiotics at home in bed. On 28 January at home in bed on IV antibiotics I received another revised letter of the one she told me not to worry about. Again she timed it perfectly knowing there was no way I could appeal it.
  18. On 6 March 1998 she wrote me a second letter of reprimand stating that she had discussed this with me on 4 March 1998. On 4 March 1998 I was at home in bed under IV antibiotic therapy still. Again she knew that I could not meet the time limit due to how sick I was.
  19. Concerning my on the job injury of December 24, 1998:
  1. FECA, OPM, and the law requires that my official supervisor fill out and submit the outlined forms and is responsible for follow up and assisting.
  2. At no time during my claim process did Mrs. Curley (supervisor) make any attempt to follow mandatory required procedures or any procedures for that matter.
  3. Mrs. Curley was directed in February to change the leave without pay status to continuation of pay. She not only failed to do this in a timely matter, but she in addition sat on the easy task an additional 10 days fully knowing she was creating a financial hardship for me.
  4. Mrs. Curley never at any time throughout the 5 months ever contacted me and offered her assistance with paperwork or concern as to my condition knowing I was very sick and on IV antibiotics.
  5. Mrs. Curley did manage on 11 different occasions to contact me while I was very ill with discipline actions, threats, and removal action.
  6. Mrs. Curley and Judy Runquist assumed themselves that OWCP had turned down my cellulitis claim when in fact they had not and OWCP was still requesting medical information. They initiated illegal action through Charleston Payroll in April 1998 to have my pay taken away when I returned to work for the pay I had received to date relating to my on the job injury. Not only were the demanding the money back, they were demanding tremendous interest and penalty fees. This was totally illegal and violated my rights to due process.
  7. By their own assumptions they took it upon themselves to over rule medical doctors signatures and reverse legal approved leave and list it as AWOL, (unexcused leave), since I filed my claim in January.
  8. Mrs. Curley and Mrs. Runquist used their own assumptions and illegal actions relating to my OWCP claim to initiate my 30 day removal from service action after 25 years government service and a Vietnam Veteran.
  9. Within a few days after they served me with the 30 day removal letter, OWCP FINALLY ACCEPTED MY CLAIM. This now legally made their 30 day intended removal letter invalid.
  10. It made no difference to them at all, because on June 24, 1998 they went ahead and ignored everything and fired me.

I have by no means referenced all the illegal actions and harassment’s they have taken against me. There are many more I could list. Shortly, I will reference and cite the individual laws and regulations violations for each item and their relationship to 18 USC "CRIMES AND PUNNISHMENTS".
