CALIFORNIA WORKERS TORPEDOED AGAIN.  Bummer! What has the Governor Done?! Concussion Alerts!

This news seems to be a purely malicious and well planned act of really bad practice by all complicit parties?  #WorkCompStinks!  Secret Tribunals, Fatalities and extreme abuse of the WorkingClass for the profits of the few.  “WE ARE THE MEDIA NOW.  EXPECT US. JOIN US.”   READ AND SHARE THIS BLOG.  START YOUR OWN.  
 .
This is actually heinous news–utterly odious and wicked!  The money trail might suspiciously lead from NFL related enterprises?….to …. where?  Nawwww, that couldn’t happen, could it?
 .
Can the President please send in the National Guard to protect California Workers now, or must more be tortured, maimed, and have their lives destroyed and shortened by WorkCompsters for the profits of the few?

“No Reporters Allowed…” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0M6m8S1OoH0

.

Why does California demand that Orthopedic Surgeons be the primary treating doctors for BRAIN INJURED WORKERS?  Nobody in Sacramento has ever head of ACOEM and MTUS and NIH for guidelines on treatment?  Doesn’t California WorkComp have any PHYSIATRISTS either to refer brain injured workers to?  
 .
The WCAB and defense teams seem to act like that’s a made up word when such is requested as a PTP!  WorkComp neurologists are essentially clueless about brains, not even knowing that vision and hearing are functions of the brain!  D’oh!  7th Grade Kids seem to know more about brains than California QME/QME “Neurologists” and CorVel/Maximus “doctors.”
 .
 
Looks like the GOV may have had a lapse of memory on his Oath of Office in his attempts at chivalry and Ms Baker?  “Our Goal Is Back To Work”??  
REALLY?  COMPLETE SYSTEM FAIL!  EXPENSIVE AND COMPLETE SYSTEM FAIL!
PS:   “Mischief” is not the same as COLLUSION AND CORRUPTION, JUST SO WE ARE CLEAR!
 

(We wonder who pays for the Private–no journàlists allowed — DIR holiday party THIS YEAR? Last year, Youtube has some pretty …interesting….footage of ‘this is a private party’)  

No Reporters Allowed By CA DIR Director Baker At “Private Event” On Cal-Osha & Workers Comp

 .
I don’t think the Gov’s “Oath of Office” promotes Chivalry to Ms. Baker, DIR, WCAB, Insurance Industries before the Common Good, does it? I could be wrong…. WorkComp does seems to have it’s own rules, courts and subsidies, huh, operating outside the Constitution of The United States of America on multiple issues, doesn’t it?  Outside the California Constitution on multiple issues, as well.  
 
Is there a Civil Rights lawyer in the house?  Has the BIA – Brain Injury Association of America been consulted?  Have any Injured Workers been consulted? Was CAAA consulted?   How about the leading mouth-pieces for the industry?  
.
Does ProPublica know about this?  Sounds like a PS to THE DEMOLITION OF WORKERS COMPENSATION!
.
We, the People, want the names, ranks and salaries of the parties to this action, please and thank you.
 
NAIDW TBI AWARENESS
Let’s watch the unfolding drama. Investigations and Indictments seem to be in order. Will DOJ and FBI investigate these suspicious acts? We can continue to wait and wait and wait and hope. 
.
 
California needs Federal Overseers of WorkComp practices to protect the Working Class, and we need it NOW!
 .
I am not too alarmed, however.  WorkComp doesn’t  seem to have any neuropsychologists to refer Injured Worker’s to anyway, for at least the past ten years, based on input from Injured Workers in Southern California.
 .
Orthopedic Surgeons seem to be the norm to be designated as treating doctors, and they joyfully report they have no knowledge of brain injuries.  
 .
(This seems to be a very weak link in their practices, since accidents with broken bones often can include head injuries…. their Society might take a closer look, or, like NFL, involve the cardiologists? D’oh!  )
 .
CAAA practices don’t seem to be much better or stronger when it comes to brain injuries; some of their members do as much harm as those paid to harm injured workers, through willful ignorance or ‘not enough money in it’ syndromes)
GRAVY TRAIN WRECK
 
Last year, one case, defense tried to send the TBI survivor to a neuropsychologist for yet another evaluation–one who admitted hadn’t treated brain injury patients for over seven years…  Just apparently real busy and profitable doing evaluations for Work Compsters.  [
 .
The three neuropsychologists who evaluated this injured worker (two in 2012, one in 2014) were all approved/authorized outside of the alleged MPN.  
 .
The adjuster apparently had no clue as to what type of doctor to send the Injured Worker to, and the EAP program (that IW was originally referred to a Clinical Psychologist) was a bit of good luck, as that CP doctor had tremendous brain injury knowledge, as his own son was recovering from a devastating brain injury, with the help of an interdisciplinary team of doctors and specialists.  
That clinical psychologist helped walked the rookie adjuster through the process, clearly describing the dangers and the needs for immediate and appropriate medical care.  The Injured Worker had to pay for the MRI’s recommended in both 2012 and again in 2014.  
 .
WorkComp peeps seem to dispute the location of the brain, and attempt to pretend it is not a body part.
 .
WorkComp seems to approve primarily Orthopedic Surgeons and Chiropractors for brain injury, with a little PT and 40 or so face to face evaluations, and countless re-evalulations by CorVel doctors—who also seem to know little to nothing about brains.  
 .
It took nearly 3 years for the mentioned Injured Worker to get to a speech therapist and occupational therapist (3-6 months treatment were required, 16 days were authorized, then extended another 8).  
 .
One of the WorkComp leased/owned neurologists suggested that since care had been denied for two years (at that time) and since the injured worker was female and over the age of 35, no treatment was deemed necessary, contrary to all medical evidence.
 .
The primary treating doctor since Feb 2013 has been an orthopedic surgeon, and the bulk of the denying Corvell doctors have been orthopedic surgeons. WorkComp neurologists and CorvVel and Maximus doctors seem to be simply clueless about head injuries…..or are they paid to just look the other way and write false reports to ensure denial of medical care.  
 .
Responses from DIR over the course will be located and  forwarded  to appropriate authorities.  Seems this situation may call for intervention, finally, by DOJ/FBI.  
TBI MEANWHILE IN AMERICA

What Happens When Americans Are Hurt on the Job? Help ProPublica Investigate

FRIENDS DON’T LET FRIENDS STAY IGNORANT.  This article could have the effect of being a call to all Americans to see the movie, CONCUSSION, in December, and search google for the facts they are hiding.  DARPA is spending gazillions on brain research….. Doesn’t Sacramento stay in touch with the DARPA peeps either?  D’oh!

Final Appeal to CAAA For Assistance Fighting WorkCompsters - Concussion, TBI, PTSD, WCAB and WTF

Wyndham Worldwide – Disabled by WorkCompsters

Final Appeal to CAAA For Assistance Fighting WorkCompsters – Concussion, TBI, PTSD, WCAB and WTF

.

Ladies and Gentlemen and Others of the WorkCompster Industries:

“Perseveration” is apparently a consequence of Concussion/Traumatic Brain Injury.  This post got longer than anticipated, but if you’re in the industry, or know someone who is, or if you are an InjuredWorker, take 5 minutes and peruse it, then share it with someone, even with a subject line of “SMFH – WorkCompsters Exposed”

It may come in handy down the road.  Thanks.

BACK STORY:

#InjuredWorkersUniting  #SilentNoMore  #OccupyVirtually #WATMN

Years ago, I volunteered in a goodwill effort with and for Convicts in America’s Maximum Security Penitentiaries. It was called “PRISONERS UNANIMOUS — EMBRACING ALL PLANETARY PRISONERS”  Maybe you heard of it?

Check FOIA, they probably have several CDs including my visits to penitentiaries across America, and my communications with a handful of government officials, goodwill organizers, friends and families of prisoners, and approximately 1,000 Convicts across America.

I think I was the second woman “in history” to “walk the ranges” at USP Marion Federal Penitentiary, back in the days when it was deemed ‘the worst of the worst” prisons, surpassed today by, so I hear, the likes of Pelican Bay.  It was after allegations of a “full scale Nazi-type of retaliation attack” on the entire Convict population.  I was corresponding with several of the Convicts listed in that dreadful “Public Report.”  I sent copies everywhere, including Amnesty International in Vienna, where they allegedly WATCH for human violations in the Americas.  Hmph.

The Guys and I established an “8 o’clock, local time” prayer network when they educated me about how deplorable America’s “Corrections” system is.  Now, privatized prisons are a bigger part of the “PROFITS BEFORE LIVES” industries.  Some of us still link up, no doubt.

The guys told me how bad things were, and said I was very brave.  They said the prison systems in America are very dangerous, and that I had better think long and hard about touching it.

They told me, “Lady, you better know what you’re willing to die for, because you might well be asked to do so if you get involved in attempting to facilitate change.”

They further advised, “Lady, we Convicts are not the problems in your country. We are the end result of the problems in your country.  If you want change, you have to go Washington.  That’s where the problems are.”   (There is something far more polite and respectful from a Convict calling a correspondent “Lady” than the pretentious “Ms. Ayres” used by defense and psychopaths, wouldn’t you agree?)

Those words reverberate in my head as if they were yesterday. I have never forgotten those haunting words.  As a Survivor of WorkersCompensation today, I know ever more how true they are.

IT’S A GRAVY TRAIN!

ONWARD:

#WorkCompsters have made that choice easier today.  They have already taken my life. 

Too often, Injured Workers make poor choices in efforts to retain competent legal counsel, much to the detriment of the Injured Worker.

This is often not discovered by injured workers until the 2nd, 3rd or 4th attempt to retain competent counsel.

Including THIS warning in every employee new hire packet, and every Human Resources orientation in California could save lives.

Till then, tell your friends and neighbors, and tell them to tell theirs. WorkComp Kills, without consequences to anybody but the Injured Workers and their loved ones.

Many Injured Workers have even sought the help of ACLU and NLG, to no avail.

We are, however, grateful for the organization, NAIDW.org, National Association of Injured and Disabled Workers, for the encouragement, resources and support they provide, and having been providing for many years. “No Injured Worker Left Behind” Semper Fi, Y’all!

We like a few of the industry bloggers who do their best to do their best for the highest good of all concerned.   Cognitive Dissonance seems to be kicking some butt in that arena, wouldn’t you agree?

Bravo to ProPublica for being a catalyst for discussion and possible change. Bravo to WorkCompCentral for relentless efforts at education and inciting legitimate discussions about the need for national discussion and change.

Let’s get beyond “PROFITS BEFORE LIVES”…. let’s incarcerate a few psychopaths for maiming and  killing injured workers, too, shall we?

It matters not if the killers are making $250K a year, or $10.7 million or more a year.  With proper trials first, of course.  FBI and DA and DOJ  need to better orchestrate their efforts, ya think?

Crime is Crime, and CRIME SHOULD NOT PAY IN AMERICA.

For personal assistance in my own, but common,  horrific case on non-stop abuse of a permanently disabled-by-untreated-brain-injury-and-various-acts-of-legal-chicanery-and-file-churning, older female worker, a local crisis center sent a Marine to help me last year.  The Marine Social Worker, kind, fierce and very helpful.

MMI neuro-psychologist report recently received (and posted!)  says my future medical needs include similar support, with probability of needs for assisted living and ‘memory care’ for my shortened life span, shortened due to WorkCompsters and corruption, involving many unclean hands. Hmph, Some “Grand Bargain, California!”

Legitimate doctors in 2012 made legitimate and conservative recommendations for medical care, denied. Had treatment not been denied by the defense counsel (not doctors, just defense lawyer and adjuster for 2012, till 2013 came along for the extreme profits of CorVel to obfuscate facts with intent to deny medical care.)  return to work might have happened in 2012.

After threats from defense counsel, then PTP released me to work with accommodations, which were denied in October 2012.  Things got worse from there, without medical care.  I have been fighting to return to work for years, to no avail.

I have endured being penny-less, relying on The Salvation Army for utilities,  filing for social welfare due to carrier arrogant practice of denials of payment of TTD, “because they could” (and they were rewarded handsomely by EDD for refusing to pay in 2012/2013 and for refusing to provided medical care.  Now, SSA is involved in the charades and chicanery, and trying to sort it all out.

Is it a felony for carriers to provide SSA and EDD with false evidence of benefits paid with intent to deny SSA benefits?  Seems to be part of a set of RICO violations, wouldn’t you think?

Yet evaluations upon evaluations upon evaluations have been performed by approximately 38 doctors (ca-ching, no care, just primarily report regurgitations written  by non-medical staff, signed by doctors, paid the big bucks).

TeamCorvel includes approximately 20 more, and ol’ Maximus comes in with just one.   (There’s a full blog, with names; see the index athttps://askaboutworkerscompgravytrains.com/list-of-posts)

While we are at it, omission of medical records and obfuscation of facts seems facilitated by the silly “chronological” ordering of medical evidence, rather than by specialty, then by chronological order.   Carrier in my case gets charged by most doctors 4-8 hours for “organizing the records”…. and maybe it’s not all the signing leased doctor’s fault their non-medical staff do things like change the date of injury to a year forward, then use first year medical evidence to falsely opine “pre-existing” symptoms.  D’oh.  Number of hours spent during an evaluation are often “inflated” and far worse, totally fabricated!

The majority of Lawyers don’t seem to care.  They  shrug say ‘their hands are tied” (and “their lips are sealed?!!!”)  Others have told me “Too much fraud in your case, it’s over my head” and “Too many people didn’t do their jobs, there’s no money in it for me”….

One interviewed actually had the audacity to ask, after pages of questions had been answered, “One more question, tell me, why did you wait over 2.5 years for medical care for a brain injury?”  D’OH!   That didn’t even merit a final response, and that attorney came HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Here’s my story, again.  Date of witnessed slip and fall backwards on ice, resulting in Concussion/Traumatic Brain injury 1/9/12 while working for Wyndham Worldwide.

The blogs. ASK ABOUT WORKERS COMP GRAVY TRAINS, began in the Summer of 2013, and continue as the only means available to fight for my life against the widely known corruption of the national WORKERS COMPENSATION SYSTEMS.

This quote is meaningless in California’s WorkComp corruption rackets, is it not?

“Every worker in California is protected by state laws governing the right to be paid correctly, be safe at work and receive benefits if they are injured on the job,” – Christine Baker
https://www.dir.ca.gov/DIRNews/2014/2014-75.pdf

And there is no means of enforcement for the Fraud Warnings, now is there? http://www.dir.ca.gov/dwc/FraudWarningNotices/FraudWarningNotices2013.pdf

What kind of system do YOU profit by that requires someone with a brain injury to represent herself because your colleagues (4 of them) could be found guilty of ABA Ethics Violations and Incompetent Representation?

Due to your accepted CA  legislated fraud regulations, and your “2 attorney” superstitions, Injured Workers bear the brunt of the lack of expertise of your crowd/CAAA memberhips.  This also allows Defense Firms to claim the title ENEMIES OF INJURED AMERICAN WORKERS.

How many injured workers retain and dismiss multiple attorneys, as the corruption is tolerated by those retained to protect injured workers? How many injured workers in California, and in America, must represent themselves due to the failure of the ABA crowds?  Some have said that more than 15% of Injured Workers are InProPer…. probably as a last resort, not a first.

Why do your various profit centers/industries refuse to work with InProPer Injured Workers, and why do your industry leased/owned doctors seem so puzzled, baffled and perplexed by the legality of an Injured Worker self-representing? Why do the medical office staffs believe they can ONLY TAKE ORDERS from the Adjuster or Defense Firm?

IS THIS SIMPLY ANOTHER CASE OF “FOLLOW THE MONEY?”

When incompetent and worse attorneys can be allowed to be rewarded for causing harm to an injured worker, how can that be good for anybody?

If WorkComp Mill attorneys  have a “case load of 300 clients”…with wishing and hoping that somebody drops dead for some ultimate pay-off for the attorney, how does that help an injured worker get medical care, benefits, return to work and settlement?

Why do employers condone such malicious unconscionable behavior of denials of medical care, benefits, and bullying and all sort of acts of terrorism, experiments, surgeries, poisoning and worse by insurance companies? What good can a WorkComp attorney do?

I even asked a WCAB Judge for permission, as stated is possible on the WCAB recommended reading, to retain an attorney to consult with, on an hourly basis.

Alas, not only did the Judge tell me he would not hear the F-words in his court room, (Felony Fraud with intent to deny medically necessary treatment), he sentenced me to fighting for my life with every ounce of courage and strength and stamina I can muster, fighting organized crimes that EVERY ONE OF YOU ARE FULLY AND COMPLICITY AWARE OF.

But wait, the Team of Four don’t have all the blame.  Defense counsel says it’s all my fault.  Hmph.  He even suggested I consider a Court Appointed Conservator since I am having such difficulty maneuvering the WorkComp system, with denials of medical care, fraudulent reports, unresponsive law enforcement and more.  The Carrier’s Fraud Department called, as most of you know, last Fall and made it very clear he did not care one iota that I had not received medically necessary and recommended care, and the conversation concluded when he said, “So, tell me Linda, when ARE you going to die?”

Some things I read on LinkedIn indicated the Employers are responsible for the bullying and terrorism of their vendors. Wyndham Worldwide was immediately apprised of the horrific bad faith and breach of fiduciary responsibility, and outright disgustingly mean thing to say. ( Intent of the caller? A “medicated worker” might have been compelled to irreversible action by such ‘poor customer service’, wouldn’t you agree? )

How many members of your CAAA organizations have been approached, recommended, took time to evaluate the merit and financial possibilities of helping THIS injured worker?  You know my name now.  I have spoken with many of you.  Your declines to help have most always been cordial, except when they weren’t.  Just so y’all know, A BRAIN INJURY IS NOT THE SAME AS A BROKEN FINGER, NOR IS THE TREATMENT THE SAME.

Watch the upcoming movie “Concussion” and then ask yourself and your partners how legitimate could it be for an insurance carrier to refuse to pay TTD, provide medical care, and embark on a mission of terrorism and destruction to an injured worker, coincidentally, UPON DIAGNOSIS OF BRAIN INJURY.

The Defense Firm treats me like they pretend to have  I & A Officers and  Judges in their pockets, as my ADA rights are consistently violated at WCAB-Riverside, and my Civil Rights.

Think about how many of YOUR clients have been sent to merely Orthopedic Surgeons or Chiropractors for TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY?  See the current list of names all the 40 doctors I had been sent to, and all the CorVel and Maximus “physician advisors” and team members.  In the olden days, they might have all been called, “Sonderkommando”….   Don’t get me wrong, there are a few good doctors in that list of 40, and they will be nominated in the upcoming CompLaude Awards.  The others will be nominated to the naughty list for possible inclusion in the ProPublica national efforts.

MY EMPLOYER DOES NOT CARE.  DOES YOURS? DO YOU?

I have many of your polite Non-Engagement Letters and I am weary of bothering with your ilk.  You are as much a part of the WorkComp problems as are the criminal doctors and lawyers.  Perhaps Sophie Scholl is kinder in her description of your ilk:

So, if you are willing to discuss courageous representation of THIS INJURED WORKER, Case ADJ818190, Linda Ayres Vs. Wyndham Worldwide et al, please let me know at your earliest convenience.

I can be reached at WorkCompLinda@gmail.com or phone 760 368 7236.  If I don’t answer, please leave a message. “I AM INJURED, NOT STUPID!”  I do have auditory and visual processing impairments (untreated, of course).  I prefer electronic mail as an ADA accommodation (that defense continuously disregards, while apparently perjuring with proofs of service to cause significant delays and further harm).

The forensic psych AME suggested that if I have Human Rights Violations Complaints that I “take it to The Hague”…..  Well, maybe that was only reasonable thing he had to say.

That’s a “Fukushima Rose”…. (3.11.11)

WE ARE THE MEDIA NOW  

Is there a limit to the number of felony counts per #WorkComp case in California? Is there a limit to the number of indictments for Unclean Hands?

 “…You know, I would not be in this mess if it was not for Wyndham’s  Workers Compensation schtick.  Without it…”

Opinings by Injured Worker on how different the Outcome of the workplace injury may have been without WorkCompster interference.  Legitimate medical care, swift and expert, could have made the difference between return to work in 2012, and permanent disabilities and looking at Assisted Living and Memory Care for the near future.  WTF Wyndham, what’s wrong with you people?!

Swearing WTF

How many evaluations are required for how many years before an Injured Worker gets medical care for a Brain Injury and release for return to work? 4? 5? 10? 20? That sure is starting to sound like “never, we hope you die” plan, doesn’t it?   47 face to face evaluations, and approximately 20 CorVel employees and “Physician Advisors” on reams of regurgitation reports, written by what seems to be rapid-fire-copy-and-paste and make stuff up if not known, due to lost or omitted medical records.

.

Most all the doctors who have touched this case to date are listed, with the SSA exceptions.  Their “clinical psychologist” suggest that although neuro-optometrists reported severe vision processing issues, that I could consider a new career as a “crossing guard” (Goodness, would you want your kids helped across busy streets by a disabled person with auditory and vision processing issues, untreated issues?! Kid hater, huh?)   It’s shocking.  The list will be sorted soon by CompLaude nominees and ProPublic investigations nominees, for what it’s worth.

.

How important is an ENT evaluation when neurologists, neuro-optometrists, physiatrists, orthopedic surgeons and chiropractors and neuropsychologists have have all made very extensive reports with very comprehensive treatment recommendations for nearly 4 years?  File c-h-u-r-n-i-n-g…..?  It is a felony?

.

How about when it includes deceptions and false statements and omission of medical records with intent to deny medical care?  Golly, it’s too much, and recent correspondence from defense seems to suggest they have “Judges in their Pockets”…. Bummer.

we the people dec

Hi Tina,  [Wyndham Worldwide representative] Thanks.  I’ll look forward to hearing from you early next week.

share thoughts

My patience is real thin these days, as so much more harm has been caused to me in the continuous pattern and practice of delay/deny/deceive in hopes that I die.  3D is what NFL families call such treatment.  I’m not sure what CNA calls it, “Business as Usual” or just  “Profits Before Lives By Any Means Necessary”?

Linkedin rankings 9 5 2015 135 pm

I was recapping my story to someone today and said out loud, “You know, I would not be in this mess if it was not for Wyndham’s  Workers Compensation schtick.  Without it, I would have been able to see legitimate doctors, get legitimate evaluations, legitimate AND IMMEDIATE MEDICAL CARE, and the probability that I could have returned to work in 2012 was high.  One doctor, Ponton, as you may recall, tried to release me to work in October 2012, despite his failure to secure medical care and expert evaluations.

I remember the first neuro-pscyhologist said that with speech therapy with cognitive remediation, I’d probably return to work in a few months.   That was February 2012.

Instead of legitimate care, I have had to fight for my life, spend a small fortune on getting basic medical care for survival, and find the most vile legal chicanery I’ve never seen before in my life.

Now I get to think about “assisted living” and “future medical” and “dementia” and “epilepsy”  since I didn’t get anything close to what legal guidelines for medical care for a clearly diagnosed head injury merits, and I’ve been bullied and badgered and threatened and abused by the “defense” and their leased/owned doctors who seem to lie on demand for the big bucks,  and zero help from the insurance carrier.  Even the CNA mis-statements of benefits to multiple agencies continues to cause me harm.

I spoke to Coastline Acquired Brain Injury Program  today, as today was the “drop out deadline”…. I cried a lot because I told them how excited I was that Sunday, 8/23/15, to be returning, then I got your email pretending like you never got the message that since I hadn’t heard from anyone, August RTW was out, and we were back on 12/14/15 schedule.  Then, because of more chicanery, and now the ENT evaluation court gig is pushed to October….. and ….. well, as you can see, if I had legitimate insurance coverage, I would have even had legitimate EEGs, MRIs, speech and occupational therapy, vision therapy and more… all in 2012, and back at work.  Wyndham employees –as you well know, have terrific benefits.

 

Coastline assured me I am welcome back any time, and we set a tentative goal of October 19th, so that I will have only missed a few weeks.  By then, the CNA/SSA/EDD skewed mess of who paid what may be sorted and I can resume what little hopeful strategies are next.  Since another two weeks have gone by that you couldn’t repond, and it looks like anther week or more for anything tangible to be addressed….I’ll aim again for return to Coastline 10/19 and return to work 12/14/15.   I am not sure if your communication response times meets guidelines of reasonable, but I see there is nothing I can do about that either.

My life has been destroyed because I tried to help my co-workers get in to the office when we were locked out during a snow storm?   Nearly 4 years of my life gone…. and the future looking quite grim.

I hope, Tina, you have learned something from the harm that has been caused to me.  The FBI agent asked, out loud, how can they sleep at night. as I told some of the horrors I have experienced at the hands of the Wyndham Worldwide mockery of a work comp program.  I just told the agent, “Well, psychopaths have no trouble sleeping.  No compassion, no empathy, and they simply pretend to be human.”

Another holiday weekend coming up for all complicit in harming me….. and I have yet another empty weekend in limbo, wondering what’s next.

I am doing all I can to encourage other Injured Workers in America to share their stories with the good peeps at ProPublica… you might have seen that new blog….. maybe you’ll find time to read it this holiday weekend:

GET INVOLVED WITH PROPUBLICA–BECAUSE THEY HAVE THE ARTILLERY TO HELP INJUREDWORKERS SURVIVE?

Thanks for your response.  Talk soon.  I don’t know why you can’t just tell me when the next sales training classes are, so at least I could have a bit of hope about something.

Sincerely,

Linda Ayres, In Pro Per

 

PS

Will someone from some Law Enforcement Agencies kindly review this complaint, and send it to the DIR et al for further investigation?  DOJ probably needs a copy for ongoing RICO violations?  Don’t be scared of the insurance industry thugs…. they seem to be mostly cowards and psychopaths, who take delight in harming injured workers.  They would never last in a penitentiary.

 What kind of Department would demand that someone with a Brain Injury represent self after failures to retain competent legal counsel that understand that there IS A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A BROKEN FINGER AND A TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY?  What kind of society would allow such of abuse, for the profits of the few.   

Here is a quote we thought you might find interesting.  “Every worker in California is protected by state laws governing the right to be paid correctly, be safe at work and receive benefits if they are injured on the job,” – Christine Baker     https://www.dir.ca.gov/DIRNews/2014/2014-75.pdf

4 out of 5 voice say GO FOR IT

Super Lawyers in California say this case is not unusual, AT ALL.  MY MY MY.  Hardly seems legitimate, does it?  Be sure to read the letter to Human Resources below, that explains how if there was WORKERS COMPENSATION maze and hoops to jump through, legitimate medical care may have resulted in return to work within months, not the ongoing charade of file churing that has been continuous for nearly 4 years.  With legitimate health insurance, the process would have been simplied to:  1) see a doctor 2) see specialists as recommended 3) get treatment 4) return to work.

Current status is yet another delay, with ADA violations and Civil rights violations for a Court Hearing on a Petition for an Order to Compel yet another evaluation, this time by an ENT doctor.  Note, Injured Worker objects to yet another evaluation, with more than 200 pages of medical records omitted with apparent intent to continue to deny medical care, inaccurate placement of medical records create a false impression of an EEG with clearly diagnosed brain injury as of “2010” and…..misleading statements by defense firm to continue the misleading statements and false allegations perpetrated by the Defense and supported by certain AME/QME doctors and the Information and Assistance Officer.

I found this on Facebook...seems true. Is there Civil Code to go with it?
I found this on Facebook…seems true. Is there Civil Code to go with it?

False/incorrect statements of disability benefits have apparently provided by the carrier to agencies such as EDD and SSA. EDD rewarded the carrier with a bonus of nearly $20,000 for cost shifting and for refusing to pay TTD and for refusing repeatedly to provide medical care.  Penalties for failures to pay in accordance with the law have not been received, and the WCAB – Audit unit has a swath of complaints against all parties, as Injured Worker has had to pay more than $43,000 for medical miles, medical evaluation (including MRI and EEG) and medical TREATMENT.

Take a look at the list of doctors.  Can you tell which have been naughty, and which have been nice, and which will likely rely heavily on the 5th Amendment of the Constitution of these United States of America.  The “officials list” of possibly complicit parties is also available to ‘proper authorities’.

ADJ8181903 – Witnessed slip and fall backwards on ice in Big Bear California, January 9, 2012 – Brain Injury

WorkComp Authorized Treatments, with Primary Treating Physician with a Specialty in Orthopedic Surgery: 

By 3/2015, the good doctor’s office said, ‘Obviously, it has to be very clear to you that they are not going provide you with any medical care whatsoever.  You have seen how they have refused to authorize any specialists, specialty care or evaluations.  We had to change the right shoulder injury, well documented in 2012 and MRI confirmed in 2013, to non-industrial or they have threatened to remove our offices from their referral lists.  It’s not personal, it’s just business, and we have to release you now…. go find a brain doctor, we can’t help you. That’s work comp.’

Is THAT form letter from CNA, or is this an industry standard?

Is YOUR name on THIS list and in these blogs?  Maybe, huh?’

ASK ABOUT WORKERS COMP CORRUPTION, MISTAKES, SONDERKOMMANDO, GRAVY TRAIN WRECKS AND MORE HERE….

After reviewing the list of doctors/providers, you may be ‘baffled, puzzled, confused and perplexed’ and asked, “WHAT TREATMENTS DID THIS INJURED WORKER RECEIVE, AND HOW MANY THOUSAND AND THOUSANDS AND THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS WERE SPENT ON EVALUATIONS THAT DID NOT RESULT IN AUTHORIZATION FOR HOW MUCH MEDICALLY APPROPRIATE CARE?  FOLLOW THE MONEY. ALWAYS FOR THE MONEY.

WC SHELL GAME TIMES HOW MANY INJURED WORKERS

 

If YOU make it to the “NAUGHTY LIST”  all thanks go to CNA and defense firm, Grancell Stander et al, and of course, to Wyndham Worldwide for corporate irresponsibility and callous disregard for the life of an injured worker, in a serious breach of human right and ethics, extreme discrimination of injured workers with disabilities, not excluding age and gender discrimination issues.   They could have made a difference. They chose not to.  Bummer.

Will someone let DIR Director Christine Baker know what happens where there are only illegitimate practices and legal chicanery in brain injury cases? Everybody planning to watch #Concussion?

Find Physiatrists and Neuropsychologists and their inter-disciplinary teams for helping Injured Workers with brain injuries, and stop relying on Orthopedic Surgeons who admittedly know little to nothing about brain injuries, although along with chiropractors who are the first doctors often seen after a slip and fall or foot ball injury or car crash.  Most experts will not play the killing games of Workers Compensation, as they took an OATH TO DO NO HARM.  Did you?

Also, encourage investigations into who writes these regurgitations called reports, without benefit of legitimate medical evaluations, and how much money is wasted. Investigate why/how defense firms can have the pattern and practice omission of hundreds of pages of medical records with intent to deny medical care.

Governor Brown, could you kindly have the Attorney General Investigations of corruption at the highest levels of Workers Compensation, and encourage Governors across the USA to do like-wise, and dispatch the National Guard to protect injured workers from these WorkCompsters? The FBI stands ready to help and maybe even the District Attorneys.   Thanks a bunch!

See this blog since Summer 2013 index for mention of ICD-9 Codes. Use the Search Key, too.

Orders are face to face medical exams for the first set of chronological providers, separated by year by an underline….starting in 2012. (Blatant disregard of ACOEM/MTUS guidelines, but that’s for another blog.) Second set are CorVel and Maximus regurgitation reports, apparently written by RNs or others and signed by a variety of doctors, citing guidelines for necessary treatment, and somehow denying it anyway.  Plenty of expensive bla bla bla.  DO THE MATH. FOLLOW THE MONEY. ASK MORE QUESTIONS?

brain concussions football

For now, let’s just make the list.  Is your name on it?    “Let’s get started.”  Remember, all of these people have made money for seeing/knowing the Injured Worker.  Did they all provide “care” or “medical treatment”?

In contrast, Injured Worker was denied benefits, denied medical care, forced to file for welfare with Social Services and rely on the charity of friends and the Salvation Army—-proving that with Wyndham Timeshare, there are “No Free Gifts” and there is blatant and callous disregard for lives of injured workers and customers.  A friend shared this link with more news on how Wyndham Worldwide behaves in the global marketplace.

While WCAB seems to deem “evaluation after evaluation after evaluation” as evidence of InjuredWorkers receiving medical care, the Information and Assistance Officer, last resort for help for unrepresented Injured Workers, is not a doctor, nor a lawyer, and practice without those licenses is questionable indeed.

Join the Discussin — you or someone you love could be next! http://www.concussion-movie.com/ http://www.concussion-movie.com/#

The dubiousness appears compounded when good doctors properly make legitimate and conservative recommendations for immediate and necessary care, only to have the recommendations denied by attorneys and adjusters in 2012, then, aided and abetted by Team CorVel.  Advising an Injured Worker to “have better control” of counsel when represented is a joke—if CAAA can’t police their own members, how can a Worker with a Brain Injury be expected to know when representation proves to be totally incompetent, dangerous, and worse?

CAB Commissioners and DIR seem complicit in the Gravy Train, at least in this case, which so many Super Lawyers indicate is ‘just how it is’ — happens to everyone — very common case, or maybe they just don’t know.  More on attorneys in another blog.

Follow this blog for more details that everybody knows but has kept the dirty secrets behind closed doors, while American workers and taxpayers pay and pay and pay—-with life, liberty and justice for none attacked by the Workers Compensation maiming killing brigades.

By the time you finish reading this blog, you will have a better idea of why Workers Compensation Survivors call it a GRAVY TRAIN WRECK.  (Some of these doctors were paid by CNA, some were paid by CIGNA, some were paid by the Injured Worker (unreimbursed medical expenses and miles to date exceed $43,300 – failures to receive adequate treatment have caused permanent and irreparable damage to IW.

Without WorkersCompensation, legitimate insurance would have facilitated care that would have been immediate, expert, reasonable, beneficial and IW may have returned to work within months, back in 2012. Without care, Injured Worker has been advised to make plans for Assisted Living in light of risk of dementia, with a need for personal assistance now.  Thanks WorkCompsters!

THE GREAT DEBATES ON THE GRAND #WORKCOMP FRAUD

#TBI Survivors remind:  MARCH IS #BRAIN INJURY AWARENESS MONTH; everyday is Brain Injury Awareness Day for a Survivor . . .

Injured workers are a particularly challenged population by the egregious failures of insurance carriers, and refusals of employers to demand that the terms of the work comp policies are honored and delivered. Bad faith and breach of fiduciary responsibility are huge problems in this arena. A host of other work comp vultures add to the losses of injured workers. Give a hoot.

People come from around the world for the #Coastline Acquired Brain Injury Program in Newport Beach, California.

It is all about “compensatory strategies” for dealing with brain injuries.  I pay for it, in more ways than one. Check it out. Coastline ABI knows the deal on brains!!!

Update on my Wyndham brain injuries of January 2012?!

Nothing changes when nothing changes.

#CNA refused to provide medically necessary treatments since date of the brain injuries, making any injuries worse ….. #CorVel Corporation seems in collusion with callous failures to provide medically necessary treatments. ….and #WyndhamWorldWide #WORLDMARK continue to fail to intervene in the egregious breaches of fiduciary responsibilities.

image

Will more months on the “rest and wait and wait” program,  sprinkled with a few more expensive evaluations with treatment recommendations for the defense to object to seems to be the continued strategies.

TEMP TOTAL DISABILITY payments were NOT made by carrier in 2012-2013 and instead of 104 weeks of TTD followed by State 52 additional weeks (since failures to provide medically necessary treatments did NOT manifest miraculous recovery in the first 3+ years)…actual weeks paid was not close to legal entitlement, hard to calculate as payments were regularly irregular, leaving injured worker nearly destitute. ..were it not for a purchased long term disability policy and early social security.

Last payment from carrier to Injured Worker was approximately May 2014. Next time you read an article suggesting that an injured worker “milks work comp…” Get the facts Jack and Jill! Roughly 80 percent of injured American workers LOSE their jobs, their health, their sanity, their homes, and their lives?! Complaints have been made to the State Controller, as there seems to be plenty of monkey business with taxpayer funds as well crossing state lines.

Ahhhh, the #GrandWorkCompFraud is alive in California and Illinois and New Jersey,  for sure. Does that make it a federal offense?

What a criminal shame. Labor code required insurance company to provide immediate reasonable and necessary medical treatment. They have not, and clearly will not, until perhaps criminal investigations. If only the district attorney would do their job, injured workers, like me, and like you, would not have to endure the torture and terrorism of such organized criminal activities.

Naw, work comp is NOT broken. You know that and so do I. What’s next?

Where do we go from here WorkComp, Wyndham, CNA, Grancell, Corvel and My Fellow Americans

WE ARE THE MEDIA NOW: OPEN RESPONSE, TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN:

  MIC CHECK RED PODIUM

[If YOU have ideas on how to resolve this, and matters like it, without a WorkComp death penalty for getting injured on the job, please advise!]

Dear Tina:

Thank you for your kind letter.

“I will share your request with the Leave Support Center and ask them to review your request and provide you a written response with the outcome.”

Please do also send the information on how to redeem the $54.73 “Three year Service Award”….  It will help with the costs of food and lodging while attending the Coastline Acquired Brain Injury Program.  I will ask my accountant to revise my 2014 return.

How nice.  That’s the first I am hearing of a monetary award for years of service!  Did I miss one for 2013? I got a card from Tommy with a Pin for the first year back.  I still have it.  Timeshare did change my life…for the best when I bought my first one, then for the better when I became a salesperson, then….. for my near total destruction upon being injured at work.

Please consider THIS  letter a further addendum to request for continued leave of absence, through December 1, 2015, such leave being part of the accommodation request.  If I can get back sooner, I will.  Dr. Hilda will reevaluate periodically, as will staff at Coastline.  

Please see the attached letter from Matrix Absence Management, a member of the Tokio Marine Group, as administrators for Reliance Standard Life Insurance Company, and the Long Term Disability Provider of the self-purchased Wyndham LTD policy.  I can tell you that Matrix/Reliance has been consistently kind, professional, and helpful, even through the financial chicanery of CNA that complicated payment of the LTD policy, more than once.  The experience between the two insurance companies is as different as night and day, good and evil, honorable and unlawful, kind and vicious…..

 

Attached is the IME, Independent Medical Exam by one of the Reliance ‘independent’ neurologists. Stewart Reubens, of Grancell, also requested a copy of this report and it is therefore being sent to all stakeholders. I am under no legal obligation to share this information; it is relevant to the possibly criminal matters at hand, that absolutely require Wyndham Intervention at the highest levels now. Let’s avoid a #FEHA lawsuit, although it seems Grancell has other aims. I have not been authorized to return to work because medically necessary treatments have not been authorized for over three years.

POLITICAL LANGUAGE

 

Ain’t that a crime?!!  If it wasn’t WorkComp, it would likely be attempted murder!   ” First- degree murder  is any intentional  murder  that is willful and premeditated with malice aforethought.”  Complicity in such acts likely has serious consequences as well.

Please note the Reliance letter clearly states:

“Based on the medical information contained in your file, you are considered totally disabled from performing any occupation for which you are qualified, by reason of training, education, or experience.  As a result, benefits will continue to April 8, 2017, or until you no longer meet the provision of your policy, whichever occurs first.”

How is it, do you think, that both of Wyndham’s insurance companies can have such diverse opinions on my ability to return to work?  Grancell has done everything possible to ensure I am not able to return to work, while they churn the files.  Yesterday, I received another big set of papers from CorVel corporation, pure chicanery and deceptions, but it is their standard of practice.  I have about 3 reams of their bogus expensive reports.

Please see the attached links on how one Mayor has requested a complete audit of CorVel.

Confusion Reigns Supreme – CorVel Hospital Experience is a Lesson for All of Workers’ Comp

http://tinyurl.com/l7fxpzw

Forth Worth Mayor and CorVel

If the Mayor can call for an Audit of CorVel’s WorkComp practices, Wyndham Worldwide can certainly call for an audit of at least my case, and ideally, an audit of all claims over the past 5 years that resulted in absences of longer than 90 days, or forced resignations as a requirement to facilitate medically necessary care. Certainly such an audit will identify a pattern of practice clearly showing the Wyndham is paying premium for insurance coverage that does not provide medical care to injured workers, and in fact, failures to provide medical care by said provider, cause egregious harm to both injured worker and employing corporation, with callous disregard for life and corporate profits and shareholder interests.  (Good for defense law firm shareholders apparently, good for nobody else.)

 

I know how that cop’s family must feel. My dad was a firefighter. I know how that ‘Brotherhood’ can mobilize and organize to help it’s own when under attack by the likes of CorVel, and what is to come for the family, also, during recovery.  I have seen the industry attacks on Cops in LA, alleging they are off work for long periods of time, blaming the cops, not the deniers of medically necessary treatments.   Yeah, industry propaganda.   Anybody with a job anywhere in the USA could be next.

LI  Self Procured Medical Care

I have stories about those first weeks when a “Case Manager, Nurse Lorraine” terrorized me, and   my doctor’s!!!    Did she work for Corvel?  I don’t know.  I think she worked for CNA.  I do know that for more than 2 years, since 2/21013,  CorVel has been complicit in denials of medical care based on some pretty fictitious and outrageous misrepresentations of medical records, and omitted/ignored medical records, in full disregard of ACOEM, MTUS and NIH guidelines for treatment of closed head injury/concussion, tbi, traumatic brain injury and related consequences. CorVel staff make it very clear that they work for the insurance company, and that would seem to be a severe conflict of interest.

See YOUR letter below for more insights to what I have experienced at the hands of these premium sucking/injured worker harming vendors!

The consequences and validity of the course of treatment that have contributed to my leave of absence being more than 3 years, and great bodily to me because of the breach of fiduciary responsiblity by CNA and it’s defense counsel, Grancell-Corona and Grancell-Novato,  is simply stated as follows:

CNA INSURANCE has authorized this medical care since date of injury:

2012 – Chiropractic, Clinical Psychologist (less than 20 sessions each)

2013- Physical Therapy-6 sessions

2014 – Chiropractic, Acupuncture, 24 sessions of Speech Therapy, Occupational Therapy, and

Physical Therapy  (Obtaining a Court order was required for Grancell to authorize scheduling of authorized chiro and acupuncture)…..

2015 – NO MEDICAL CARE, NO RETURN TO WORK, NO DISABILITY BENEFITS paid by CNA SINCE MAY 2014, after refusing to pay, despite Court agreement, in 2012/2013.  Funky accounting let them off the hook with a $16K profit for ‘negotiated’ reimbursement to the State of California for monies the State paid out of my account in 2012/2013.  (Small Permanent Disability advance received yesterday, that will serve to facilitate Coastline ABI program attendance. According to the law, PD estimated payments were due 14 days after last TTD payment… which was May 8, 2014.  See another problem here? Let’s work together for a solution; CNA has a fiduciary responsiblity to Wyndham, and TO ME, as an insured injured worker; that has been breached repeatedly; let’s change that for me, and for all injured workers who follow this path.)

Clearly, the above meets no thinking person’s idea of legitimate, reasonable nor appropriate medical care for a well documented traumatic brain injury.  It does not comply with WorkComp guidelines, ACOEM, MTUS, NIH or any thinking person’s notion of how to deal with brain injury. 

brain concussions football

Self procured (I PAID FOR IT MYSELF VS. QUIETLY LOSING MY LIFE) medical care has included physician requested but adjuster/attorney denied treatment:

2012- Functional Neurology with TBI Expertise, MRI Brain, chiropractic

2013 – Vision Therapy & Prism Lenses, Chiropractic, Acupuncture, Speech therapy

2014 – Vision Therapy & Prism Lenses, Chiropractic, MRI – TBI Protocol, Acupuncture, Neuro-Psychology sessions

How many thousands and thousands and thousands of dollars have been spent on reports that requested medical care since 2012, that were simply ignored until February 2013, then they were denied in UR evaluations that would not pass a legitimacy test? More than $50,000 was spent at SCRIPPS in 2014, for merely 24 days out of the recommended 3-6 months.   What a waste of money was that!  Whose money was it? Furthermore, such a program is more beneficial for NEW Injuries, not 2.5 year old untreated head injuries.  Helpful, yes, but if CNA had only agreed to Coastline ABI program when it was first presented in May 2014, I could be almost back to work now for a fraction of the cost, and more compensatory skills.

CNA was required by law to be proactive in finding and securing help for me.  The only brain injury treatments received were all based on my own diligence and research, at the guidance of various reporting doctors, who’s recommendations were consistently ignored.  Romano Trust vs. Sedgwick rulings apparently gives companies like CNA the right to kill injured workers.  Is that the type of company that represents Wyndham Corporate Culture and Values?  WILL WYNDHAM STEP UP NOW?

Out of all the evaluating doctors seen, only 3 supported denial of medical care….. known industry leased/owned doctors….Zardouz, Kent and O’Brien.    Any district attorney investigation should likely start there, then move through the list of complicit CorVel doctors, and, of course, to the handling of the mis-information by Ms. Mall of Grancell, and supported by Mr. Reubens of Grancell, while the CNA adjusters seemed to be ‘just following orders’.   Most likely, WE, THE PEOPLE, NEED THE DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE TO INTERVENE IN WORK COMP CRIMES, NATIONALLY, WITH A SPECIAL COMMISSION.  In seeking Class Action potential, it seems too many attorneys are too afraid of the big corporations, or have no working knowledge of fighting for civil rights.  Others simply seem to be in cahoots with the dubious doctors, law firms, scams and other providers.

Brain  viral mashable more

As an injured Wyndham Worker, and as a Wyndham shareholder, I am hereby formally requesting that an immediate claim audit of my case be conducted…. top include th CNA handling, the Grancell obfuscation of all facts and file churning, and the CorVel deceptions.  As I see from the article, an Employer does indeed have the authority to question the handling of claims, and a responsiblity to do so when the harm caused by the employer’s vendors has been so egregious.   PLEASE WORK WITH MIKE DOUGHERTY TO GET THIS CLAIM INVESTIGATED, WHILE I GET AS MUCH COMPENSATORY STRATEGIES AS POSSIBLE WHILE AT COASTLINE ABI PROGRAM.   Here is that link as well. http://www.coastline.edu/students/students-with-disabilities/acquired-brain-injury/    

I will never be whole, but without treatment, I will forever be 100% disabled.   That’s not ok.

Thank you also for the vouchers for discounts at the Wyndham property in Newport Beach, near Coastline Community College Acquired Brain Injury Program. The staff at Ramada Inn – Newport Beach is always so kind, patient and gracious. When I first arrived there, in October 2014, I didn’t know it was a Wyndham property (I forgot how big Wyndham is!)  I told my “WorkComp Story” at check in, as I tell anybody who will listen, and the Front Desk Manager listened patiently and said, ‘Well, let’s get your experience with Wyndham back on a positive track.  Allow me to upgrade your visit.”   Kindness goes a long way.

With the tiny advance on Permanent Disability funds just received (thanks, Fred!), I hope to be able to complete the one year ABI program, which is officially concluded December 10, 2015, and I will jump through all the hoops to get there, stay there,and excel there, getting the compensatory strategies that are offered when people with brain injuries have exhausted all restorative treatments, or didn’t get any, like I didn’t.   Maybe I can organize a Student Union activity on behalf of InjuredWorkers in California, or an educational launch to reach ignorant doctors, lawyers and adjusters, and work with DA’s to deal with the rest of them.  That would be a big goal, but as a Salesperson, I know the value of goals, written goals, and Vision Boards.  More than one of my doctor’s has indicated that I’m so smart, that’s the only reason I have survived this atrocity to the degree that I have.  I want to help Wyndham get a better insurance company and a better, more-pro-active work comp program to avoid fiascos like this in the future.

NOBODY SHOULD HAVE TO EXPERIENCE THESE HORRORS.   Plus side, I’ve learned to blog, and from the comfort of my War Room, I can type like there’s no tomorrow.  That part of my brain stayed in tact…… I wrote you, Tina, a letter, that morning of the 2nd impact on 2/4/12, when I told you if I die because of failures to provide medical care, that I hoped my family would sue Wyndham to kingdom come.  Well, I didn’t die yet, no thanks to Wyndham or it’s vendor.  My quality of life has severely diminished, and my life span has been dramatically shortened, and future health risks from untreated TBI are numerous.

Let’s make a positive impact now, while I can still fight the good fight!

cognitive dissonance turbulence

The first year was the most important for care. CNA knew that. So did Grancell.  It’s in the reports they chose to ignore. Remember, they attempted to coerce me to accept $100,000 in November 2012 in lieu of a deposition, treatment, and it required that I forfeit all civil rights, including my right to return to work.  I’m stuck with permanent brain damage because of all of this, and of course, I am not happy about it all.   Remember also, that the first neuro-pscyhologist, Dr. Eileen Kang, recommended “speech therapy with cognitive remediation” and indicated after that I would return to work.  Speech therapy was never authorized till I got to Scripps – Encinitas, in the Summer of 2014.  The damage was already done.

I will plan to return to work on or before December 1, 2015, hopefully, with few other accommodations to be requested/required.   Dr. Hilda Chalgujian is following my case, and Dr James Pasino at Coastline Acquired Brain Injury program is the neuro-psychologist in charge of the program, which is nationally renknowned and a model for other State program, and is supported by the Department of Rehabilitation.  I have requested and been authorized to participate early in the ‘career planning strategies’ for ABI survivors, which starts next week, in addition to the regular curriculum.  It is normally recommended that the program be 50% completed, but since I don’t know if I will be able to afford to stay through June 2015, I want to get as much good from the program as possible, and perhaps I can be one of the first virtual participants in the suMmer/fall program.  That’s just a hope of mine.  The drive is very hard on me, but I have to do it if I ever expect to have a life again.  LINK FOR MORE INFO:  http://www.coastline.edu/students/students-with-disabilities/acquired-brain-injury/

So, I await confirmation of the continued leave of absence, the Award redemption information, and confirmation that a full audit will be conducted, with perhaps a call to the Attorney General’s office in California to expedite further investigations of these horrific crimes.   While Grancell attempts to fraudulently state that I was this way before…. I have to laugh at their arrogance.   There is no such evidence, nor is there any way that Wyndham would have repeatedly hired  me in different locations, and even send me to Big Bear in January 2011 to help out during a time of severe management upheaval.  As you may recall, I was #1 Sales Rep of the Month more than once.

Perhaps CNA and Grancell current players are unaware of the timeshare world, and how it just doesn’t “MAKE SENSE” to attempt to kill an injured Timeshare Sales Person…. without expecting consequences.  More details are available at the blog site,  https://askaboutworkerscompgravytrains.com/list-of-posts.  God bless America, and the First Amendment., the 14th Amendments,  the Civil Rights Act and the US Constitution.

constitution  too long didnt read

Section 1. All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal   protection of the laws.”  

14th amendment violated by Workers Compensation Corporations?

It is my hope and prayer that Wyndham will make a difference, starting with it’s injured workers, and taking it global.  There are good people at Wyndham, and I have been blessed to know many of them.   I recoil, as if from a hot flame, at the very thought of the people at Grancel and CNA, but I’m just sensitive to evil that way.

end evil  step out of line

So, as I told Stewart Reubens and Fred Sachs, I don’t want to fuss about things while I am at Coastline.  I have also learned that 3 years in complete Survival Mode (or 2 years, since the first year I was hardly present cognitively)…. such stress is similar to what prisoners of war experience, and it is very dangerous for a brain injured person. Obviously, treatment will never happen via CNA, as many doctors have told me, in their own sheer utter discouragement and despair.  Nor is there any interest in good faith mediation.  So I hope they will just stay out of my way and let me recover and get back to work.

My plan is to continue at Coastline uninterrupted through December, then return to work at Palm Springs, in time to get trained and ready for high season.

Thank you, Tina, also for the kinder tone of your letter.  Another peer at Coastline indicated her horror that nobody from her job of over 20 years so much as called to see if she was ok.  Another teacher, in Boston an a Nurse in North CA  is having the same sort of “work comp” troubles as I am, and it’s a self-insured school district, but with the same unclean hands and legal chicanery.. It’s epidemic.  Across the Nation.  #InjuredWorkersUniting  #SilentNoMore

Subject: Interactive process

Dear Linda,

 

On January 16, 2015, you indicated you had reactivated your Real Estate License and wanted to commence the interactive process regarding your return to work.  Please note that we have been engaged (and will continue to engage) in the interactive process, and we have attempted to work with you regarding your desire to return to work.  Our communications to you regarding your medical status and your desire to return to work constitute engagement in the interactive process.  Despite your desire to return, you still are unable to return to work€“ by your own admission.

  • January 23, 2015 – I am still TTD, temporarily totally disabled. Also, No brain experts have indicated that I am recovered sufficiently to return to work
  • January 13, 2015 I seem to pretty much permanently 100 disabled.
  • December 4, 2014 €œI am still temporarily totally disabled and now my conditions are exacerbated. I am unable to participate in the December 8 training class, much to my great disappointment and anguish.
  • November 26, 2014 €œI ’m tired and have brain fatigue and a little preservation . . . other cognitive deficits exist . . .
  • November 26, 2014  My California Real Estate Broker license expired because I was unable to cognitively perform the continuing education courses in time.
  • November 4, 2014 Because of my cognitive impairments, I am much slower to figure things out .

 

When you expressed your desire to return to work, we requested a medical release, but you have not provided one.  We need that release and its accompanying description of your limitations so that we can work with you to see if there is a position for which you are qualified, the essential functions of which you could perform with or without accommodation.  We cannot place you back in the workplace without that information and subsequent discussions with you.

 

In an email you sent on February 1, 2015, you stated €œI . . . .am hereby requesting extension of leave of absence to complete one year at Coastline Community College – Acquired Brain Injury Program in Newport Beach, which, ideally, will be completed on or before December 1, 2015, at which time I hope to be able to return to work.”

 

Regarding your request of an extended leave of absence until December 1, 2015, from your email on February 1st, I will share your request with the Leave Support Center and ask them to review your request and provide you a written response with the outcome.   Additionally, per your request, I signed discount vouchers for Wyndham hotels and provided them to you so you could secure accommodations at your expense.  Let me know if you need more in the future and I would be happy to assist.

 

Finally, you inquired about reported compensation in the amount of $54.73 for 2014.  We researched and found that the amount is associated with your three year service award with WVO.  To address this outstanding issue, you may either redeem the award (we will provide you the information to redeem online) or you may elect to forgo the award and we can reissue a W-2 to you for 2014.  Please note that reissuing the W-2 may take approximately 45 days to complete.

 

Please let me know if you have any questions and advise how you would like to proceed on the service award issue.

 

Thanks so much,

 —-Wyndham Human Resources
