….yeah its called “not trying to get fired from your job”.
oops too late.
well this story just pissed me off with all the recent bs i’m already going through.
this person was suspended because,
and get this,
he was working too hard…
City employees are routinely disciplined for slacking off — but one worker was brought up on insubordination charges and suspended for working too hard!
Viktor Berlyavsky, a Department of Environmental Protection project manager, says his seven-hour workday was hardly enough time to meet his supervisor’s deadlines and he never dreamed that working late would be considered “‘misconduct.”
But on six days between March and May of last year, Berlyavsky stayed beyond his shift — ignoring orders from his boss to leave the workplace at closing time.
Berlyavsky never put in for overtime or comp time. He says he needed to work longer to finish his assignments and to complete some union-related tasks.
Even so, officials brought him up on insubordination charges and sought an astonishing 74-day suspension as punishment.
An administrative-law judge pointed out that no one else at DEP had ever faced such bizarre charges, but he still ruled that Berlyavsky disobeyed direct orders. So he recommended suspension — for a single day.
“The facts found here show that respondent was insubordinate in twice disobeying an order to leave work after seven hours,” Judge John Spooner said in his decision. “At the same time, the facts show several additional mitigating circumstances, all of which must be weighed in determining a penalty.”
Spooner, in his decision, said there was no evidence that the leave-on-time directive “served any specific agency policy.” He called the misconduct “minor” in nature and said “only a minimal penalty is warranted.”
Still, Berlyavsky — who has worked for the agency 12 years but is a non-managerial worker, earning about $59,000 in 2012 — called the directive “humiliating and unfair.” Co-workers of his who have managerial titles have frequently worked longer than seven hours in order to complete their duties.
same way i was let go because i was a “good worker”.
i busted my ass for 5 years only to be fired and replaced by a relative.
had people crying for me because they even didn’t understand it.
they were gunning for that man.
point blank and simple,
that’s how they do in new york.
its called “at will”.
just bat your eyelash wrong and you’re fired with no explanation.
they will create any little excuse when they don’t like you to get you out.
then they put you in hell of trying to find another job.
fuck outta here with this bullshit man.
