Victims of Workplace Bullying – Enough is Enough

Victims of Workplace Bullying:

From 2004 up until Verizon wrongfully terminated me in 2008 (for standing up for my rights), I was an employee at Verizon and was being brutally harassed, discriminated against, retaliated against, targeted, bullied and was forced to endure numerous racial comments then terminated for making complaints about it.

I placed my issues in Verizon’s hands, and they failed me.  I placed them in the hands of the Massachusetts Commission against Discrimination, and they failed me as well.  I placed them into the hands of the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, and the failed me also.  Now it is the hands of the U.S. Federal Courts – and 8 years later – I am still awaiting JUSTICE!

I learned over time, there was no law to protect people from workplace bullies.  I find this unacceptable and unfair to the workers in this country, and it’s a shame.  But there is something else; and I wish I knew back them that I am going to share with all of you now to help you.

There is a law, which will help you against managers that are intentionally targeting and harassing you.  But before you move forward on this, check with your state and local courts and attorneys.

As I know from being an employee in Verizon, it is run improper and things need to change now.  So I have made it my life’s journey to strip them and drop them to their knees, one bite at a time.  So yes, it is personal!!

Over the last few weeks, I have helped a few Verizon employees press criminal charges against Verizon management, for the continued and relentless harassment that fell under the law of, “Aggravated Harassment.”

These managers had to stand in front of the judge, on these charges, and had to make a plea.  They had to hire their own attorneys, and will continue to spend money out of their pockets.  Verizon and the EEOC protect these horrendous Verizon managers and deny or delay justice, but the criminal courts could care less who they work for.

My opinion is this, if I had to do things over and knew about this law; I would have filed criminal charges on managers like: “Mal Benvie, Anne Best, Paul McCarthy and Patty Regan (all from the Southeast Massachusetts area for Verizon), 4 managers that deserve more than justice.

If other employees besides yourself have also had the same harassing issues, from bad managers and these managers are continuously moved around to keep protecting them (like the catholic priest were), the only way to keep tabs on their inappropriate and harassing behavior, is through court records.

As time goes, these harassing managers have a few choices:

  • Keep paying for attorneys – because Verizon will not pay for their attorneys.
  • Built a court and criminal record, which will either get them fired, or no one else will hire them.
  • Possibly, and eventually go to jail as they may have numerous criminal complaints against them.
  • Or finally STOP harassing the employees that deserve respect.

You do not have to pay for filing these charges, but these harassing manages have to pay attorney fees.

Understand this, if you begin to file criminal charges on the managers that are harassing you (remember not bullying you, as there is NO LAW to protect you from bullying) you will have a case.

Always remember:

  • Always tell the truth – always
  • Document everything
  • And if you have witnessed, have them provide you with their statement – ASAP.

Read the information below to help you.  Right now, this is your only hope, before the workplace bullying in one day a law.

You have a right to a healthy and safe work environment; sometimes you may have to fight for that right.

About justiceatverizon

Neal W. Dias – Bio I am a 46 year old former U.S. Marine, who was brought up by my father, due to my mother passing away when I was 8 years old. I have five children, and a grandchild and a wonderful wife. I was born in 1965, in Fall River Massachusetts. I lived on the 2nd floor from my Grandmother. I come from a very large family Cape Verdean family. In 1973 we moved from the city, into the suburban neighborhood, a place called Swansea. It was that year when I lost my mother in an auto mobile accident. In 1984 I went into the U.S. Marines which enforced respect for one self and our Nation. After getting out of the Marines, I furthered my education and received my first degree, which was in Electrical Technology. In 1997 I was hired by Nynex (now called Verizon), as a lineman. In 2004 I was promoted to manager as I was in the process of working on my second degree in Business Management and advanced to upper management, rapidly. I was a valued leader on the Verizon Diversity Committee, and spoke at several locations. I was on the Diversity committee and was directly responsible for ensure the first ever Verizon’s Diversity Week went on without any hitches. I was awarded for my success in New York by the Verizon New England President. I was apart of other specialized organizations within Verizon to ensure my voice was heard as I stood up against Bullying, Harassment, Racism and Discrimination was not accepted with the Verizon walls. But it was in 2004 when I was promoted, I began to see Verizon employees getting bullied and tormented by Verizon Management. I did what I through was best, and tried to halt the bullying that was taking place at Verizon, then it shifted to me. After standing up against the powers to be, trying to help others I was targeted, harassed, bullied, discriminated against, endured racial harassment and eventually wrongfully terminated. I was brought up with the belief of how you treat people, is how you will be treated. It was embedded into my mind that respect was how it will be in my family. My father said, “Respect people, work hard and life will treat you kind.” This was the belief of a man who was discriminated against for so many years, because of his color, but never changed his values. I knew then, I cannot walk away like so many others that have had to endure such cruelty, and that this bullying issue is larger than me. After seven and a half years my story is still is not over as I am still in federal court in Boston Massachusetts awaiting the second summary of judgment decision. I will continue to fight for justice and my honor. I now have committed my life to help others, and started a blog page which has acquired over 13,000 readings and over 1,500 comments in only a few months. After hearing all these stories, I knew I had to do something and became an advocate for workplace bulling. This is when I stumbled upon “New York Healthy Workplace Advocates.” On April 30, 2012 I was honored to have spoken in Albany New York at the Capital a National Campaign on Workplace Bullying. I am an active Advocate to this cause, in Massachusetts. I have helped to organize many in the fight against Verizon and other companies in the war against bullying in corporate America. I have helped to guide so many to resources to guide these victims in the fight against any form of harassment or discrimination in the workplace, as this is my mission. Neal W.
