How Dare They, Indeed! — ‘Are you F’ing Kidding’

BRAVO AND THANK YOU @DavidDePaolo! Saw this early and blasted it all over Facebook and Twitter to @LucyOccupy and Friends. ūüėÄ

“HOW DARE YOU” Are you F’ing Kidding Me?!?”

“Why on earth was this injured worker jerked around like that? What is the problem with IMMEDIATELY authorizing treatment that a non-work comp doctor poignantly prescribed? Why does it take so long to get “authorization” and why is authorization needed in the first place?”

“Complete and utter BS.”

WorkComp BRAIN INJURY Self-Procured Care, Hotel Vouchers, Mediation, Status and Updates

Subject: LINDA AYRES VS. WYNDHAM WORLDWIDE ; Re: Hotel Vouchers, Mediation, Status and Updates

“…Timeshare….a fantastic industry to work in…..FACT!” ¬†UNLESS…………..

ARDA
ASK AND TELL ABOUT WORK COMP GRAVY TRAINS https://askaboutworkerscompgravytrains.com/

Hi Tina,

Thanks very much.  The vouchers are a  huge relief for me.  I can make some tentative plans now, pending your further response.

why mediate

Friends in the industry have suggested that I do what I can to initiate mediation toward settlement. ¬†I have done all I can do for a few years and have been merely insulted in addition to further injuries. ¬† It’s hopeless for me to try to deal with these people, even though Workers Comp is supposed to be an “Exclusive Remedy”….. it’s a farce. ¬†That’s a given.

If you and Michael Dougherty et al all want to approach the carrier and defense firm, I would be open to mediation in Los Angeles, but I won’t suggest it to them again.

They are copied herewith because that’s apparently the law, according to Stewart Reubens. ¬†I have been evaluated by approximately 40 doctors in person, and how more have reviewed records? Defense has enough evidence; they know what a brain injury is, and what my future medical picture could look like, and how they have successfully and dramatically shortened my life span, and continue to do so.

You and Michael might want to have them submit a proposal to me, that I can review with someone who is not in an adversarial position against me, and perhaps we can settle up. ¬† If not, well, when nothing changes, nothing changes. ¬†I am open to anything reasonable. ¬†$100K was offered in November 2012 when the extent of injuries was obfuscated by refusals by the carrier/defense to authorize specialty evaluations and treatments. ¬† I was 59 when the injury happened. Tic Toc. They are wasting what’s left of my impaired life.

Here is an article about:¬†CLOSE “IN PRO PER” CLAIMS

WITH MEDIATION    via WorkComp Mediator

http://us7.forward-to-friend.com/forward/show?u=fb8849b0b85117f7182c955e0&id=f8ffd31112

“….Sometimes the SRA has a bona fide complaint, but without professional assistance has not been able to communicate it. The neutral mediator is often able to re-state the concern in a way the parties can address and put past them. The mediator can help each party see the other side‚Äôs point of view.”

“Animosity can obstruct effective communication. Caucusing allows parties to avoid direct confrontation. The parties are separated, and the mediator shuttles between rooms.¬† The mediator presents the parties’ views in a way most likely to lead to resolution.”

“Minimally, mediation can improve communication and relations between the parties…..”

MEDIATION FASTEST ROUTE

I think, based on my experiences of each of them,  Grancell wants this to be a till-death-do-us-part claim term.

It’s more profitable for the law firm. ¬†If Teddy Synder, Esq. ¬†would mediate this case, I have been watching her posts for quite a while. ¬†I don’t sense that she is owned by the industry, so I would imagine she could mediate this case. ¬†You or Michael could check with her office? ¬†Or ask Fred Sachs to? ¬†It’s not in Grancell’s ¬†financial interests to move this case anywhere; they apparently gets paid no matter what, huh?

Remember, I have been seen by approximately 40 doctors, and I did not get reasonable nor appropriate medical care at the time of the accident, not even an offer for a ride to the emergency room after my manager helped me up after laying on the ground for who knows how long, and I needed help to get up, and I was very dazed and confused. ¬†The sales meeting happened shortly after that, and everybody had a good laugh about my fall. ¬†I had a 9 am tour. ¬†All I remember about it is apologizing to them that I was confused, and that I had fallen on the ice earlier and hit my head, and they were owners and didn’t want to upgrade, so with apologies, I remember saying, “Let’s get your gift.” ¬†That’s was probably their favorite ever update.

MEDIATION FORM SUBMISSION   7 18 2015  919 AM PDT

It was after that that the admin manager asked if I was going to see a doctor and I recall saying, “Yes, do I have to see any special doctor?” ¬†He said, as I have often quoted, “Just see any doctor that takes workers comp insurance” and gave me an incomplete DWC-1 form, without any insurance info on it. ¬† I called a local chiropractor and asked if he accepts work comp and the office said he did. ¬†So down the icy mountain I drove, God only knows how; I don’t remember any of it. ¬†I do remember getting to the doctor’s office just before 5, so I don’t know why it took so long to get there.

I thought I just needed an “adjustment” and that I would be fine. The doctors said I had a concussion along with the mis-alignments. ¬†He said I would probably feel like I’d been hit by a truck in a few days, and he was certainly right on that.

I didn’t know what a concussion was, I just knew I couldn’t think anymore, and my eyes looked like, so the office told me later, that ‘nobody was home”. ¬†I had trouble speaking immediately, and the receptionist was often exasperated by my huge challenges to make a simply return appointment.

SMALL ACTIONS BIG CHANGE

I called EAP, and they sent me to a LOCAL clinical psychologist, Dr. DeGoede. ¬†While waiting to see the clinical psychologist in a few days, I went to the Urgent Care, using my CIGNA employee health benefits, and CIGNA even had to fax my ID card to them before they would see me. So everybody knew it was a WorkComp injury. ¬† I got lost going there, I was very tired, they said they couldn’t see me till they had the CIGNA card, so I told them I would go home to sleep and asked them to call me when they got the fax. ¬†I got lost going home (about 5 miles away) , and returning to the office. It ¬†was not part of the alleged MPN at the time (I knew nothing of an MPN still) but he has since¬†benefited¬†financially¬†by becoming a referral member. ¬†It was the Urgent Care doctor who prescribed the MRI of my brain, which I got and paid for with a $371 co-pay with CIGNA insurance.

The clinical psychologist referred me to a local neurologist, who turns out was on the alleged MPN, but refused to see me when I appeared, with the hand written referral letter. ¬†That neurologist’s ¬†office perjured later and said I failed to appear. I begged for help or a referral to someone who could help.

CNA had no neurologists nor neuro-psychologists, (apparently still don’t) so they relied on Dr. DeGoede’s rollodex to find Dr. Eileen Kang, Neuropsychologist in Fullerton. ¬† She didn’t know the neurologist her office referred me to at the Orange County Neurology Center, but they could see me within weeks, not months, due to cancellations. ¬†I’m sure that neurologist gets plenty of cancellations. ¬† He wanted me to drive, sleep deprived, more than 100 miles each way for an EEG in his office. ¬†I asked then adjuster to get me an EEG closer to home, and a neurologist closer to home (this was about 2 hours away, and I was in no condition to be driving period, let alone driving sleep-deprived. ¬†That’s when I began to think, “LOOK, I’M INJURED NOT STUPID”

lisa and bart the whole damn system is wrong

As soon as it was clear I had a brain injury, then adjuster terminated benefits (April 2012; injury was January 9, 2012) . ¬†Remember, the first adjuster, while I was represented, accepted a call from me and told me if I was NOT represented, he would help me get medical care. It sounded to me like that was the only way I was going to get care, and since the law firm didn’t under grasp that the brain is a body part, and not a “psych-component” I was willing to work with him.

That’s how we got the initial evaluations, until it was too clear for CNA that they had a brain injury case. ¬†The first law firm I retained there was no attorney supervising the office manager who sent me to the first orthopedic surgeon…. I think you know how it went from bad to worse from there…..Remember, upon confirmation of brain injury is when all the reallly bad stuff began to happen.

CNA never even authorized an MRI of my brain and took over a year to payback my CIGNA co-pay of $371, and actually, apparently doubled paid the provider. They never provided the neuro-optometry evaluations requested repeatedly since 2012, nor will they schedule the one authorized this year.  They refused to reimburse for self-procured neuro-optometry and lenses and vision therapy.

The auditory processing piece recommended at SCRIPPS includes a software program for approximately $100 bucks for auditory retraining, to go along with the proposed hearing devices. ¬†CNA refused to get the cognitive remediation therapy repeatedly requested, they refused to even get a speech therapy evaluations and I didn’t get speech therapy till August 2014, when SCRIPPS was authorized for a fraction of the time medically necessary. ¬†We all already know the rest of that story.

California Republic one star yikes

Remember, it’s not loss of hearing at issue, it’s the auditory PROCESSING, like it’s not vision at issue, it’s the VISION PROCESSING. ¬†It’s a brain injury. ¬†The brain in command center. I have not seen an endocrinologist nor have I had any ongoing treatment other than acupuncture, which has measurable results. ¬†I suspect it will be necessary for a life-time, as I have experienced extreme dizziness and nausea if I go too many weeks between sessions, as happened in recent weeks. ¬†I’m back to a weekly plan, for as long as I can afford it. ¬†Chiropractic, self-procured for pain management, and also in conjunction with right shoulder mobility, takes place several times a month, no thanks to CNA.

WWW MMM 13

The Orthopedic issues have always been secondary to the brain injury to me, and acupuncture, self-procured since August 2013, is the only ongoing medical care I have received, with measurable improvements that have also eliminated the suggested need for right shoulder surgery, although the defense apparently resorted to extortion to convince the PTP to falsely state the right shoulder injury was “Non-Industrial” when a fast glance at the Crowe-Paradis future medical piece clearly showed the right shoulder, the need for further MRI’s etc. Defense resorts to chicanery; I stand in truth. ¬† When my manager helped me up from the ground, heard my response to his question, “Are you ok?” and I said, “No, I’m not. I hit my head reallly really hard” the direction Grancell has taken this case is dubious, at best, but I don’t think Stewart reads much, and I suspect there is some serious CYA happening.

I got an EEG in 2012, because the adjuster threatened me that if I did not get one by March 30th, he would terminate my benefits. ¬†Defense likes to show that as an EEG of 2010, because of the doctor’s typo on the cover letter, which clearly references the 2012 evaluations and the actual EEGs show the 2012 dates. ¬†Obfuscation with intent to deny medical care has been continuous. ¬†That EEG was omitted repeatedly, moved around the medical index from 2012, to 2012, then separated and scattered about…. to ensure falsehoods of ‘pre-existing evidence of EEG’ had some plausible deniability to the staff’s writing reports for the doctors in question.

www meme 4

It took till 2014 for CNA to get an EEG for the 2012 brain injury, and then they refused to have a follow up, as recommended by the neurologist, to have a doctor review the EEG with medical records. ¬†I have spent more than $43,000 to survive the Wyndham WorkComp plan, and the only real progress I have made is my sheer will to survive, and the compensatory strategies I am learning at Coastline Acquired Brain Injury Program (since October 2014). ¬† Fellowship with other Brain Injury survivors is also very helpful in accepting this “new normal”…. everybody in my class is exceptionally intelligent, and we all have different struggles, depending on which brain lobes are involved. ¬† Based on my symptoms, all of lobes are involved. ¬†It’s not just that I get a little dizzy and some headaches, believe me, it’s not just that.

NAIDW TBI AWARENESS

You see, if I had received medical care at the beginning, and as recommended and I was stuck with these cognitive deficits, I would shrug and say, ‘bummer, let’s work around it”…. but because I am a victim of ¬†what appears to be aggressive criminal conduct, with intent and success in causing permanent harm to my brain, ¬†for the profit of several/many people, not only do I have to fight to work around my cognitive impairments, I have fight to stay alive, and the legal stress and the financial stress are of some of the worst things that a Brain Injury Survivor can deal with.

In 2014, a structured settlement guy attempted to open lines of communication with the carrier toward settlement and/or mediation, I also asked both the 2 adjusters and current defense counsel to engage in mediation. ¬† I sense they threatened him because he never provided me with anything that looked like he had done anything to determine the numbers, and actually just relied on my guestimates. ¬†In a face to face meeting, he actually snarled at me and said, “THEY WILL NEVER TALK TO YOU.”

“Yikes, ok, Dude, chill. ¬†Nice to meet you, too.” was my reaction.

GRUMPY CAT TAKE A SMILE

It was suggested that I do the math myself and propose a settlement number.  I know they have computers to sort that out, and I gave it my best shot at $700,000, and after attending the SCRIPPS 9th Annual Brain Injury Conference in May 2014, where I learned of the long term risks involved in my injuries on top of current impairments,  the estimated number rose to $1.3 million, also considering shortened life span from the initial fall, and the continuously shortening of my life due to the failures to have been provided with medical care, and all attempts at self-procured care interrupted with threats by the defense counsel.

My efforts were met with further insults to injuries. ¬† Not only did they just say “No”…. a representative from the Carrier actually called me, said he did not care that I haven’t received medical care for more than 2.5 years (at the time) and then asked, “So tell me, Linda, when ARE you going to die?” ¬† A while later, the defense attorney, in a politely framed but completely vile agenda suggested that since I am so challenged in dealing with the legal processes (pure chicanery in my book!) of Work Comp, that I consider a Court Appointed Conservator. ¬†Combined with the omission of medical records, false statements to doctors with intent to deny medical care, and causing permanent and irreparable brain damage to me, ¬†I have no interest in anything from them other than an immediate and reasonable settlement offer.

mon politics is

If you and Michael Dougherty, on behalf of Wyndham, pow-wow with the Wyndham agents, CNA and Grancell, perhaps you can encourage settlement or mediation.  I have no reason to believe they will act in good faith, as they have not done so from the very beginning.  Remember, they terminated benefits in April 2012 upon confirmed diagnosis of brain injury, which could be considered a criminal act.  Yes, I know they can work around it.  The truth is what it is regardless of lies surrounding it.

If I keep trying to edit this to make it shorter, I will keep adding to it.

mlk hitler germany

In addition to the points of the earlier email, an extension to my leave so I can finish up at Coastline ¬†(last day of program for 2015 is December 10) ¬† I am hopeful that by then I can return to work with minimal accommodations, and if you’re willing, we can plan on a transition return to work while I am still at Coastline (full 2 week training, then back to 2-3 days at Coastline with 2-3 days on the sales floor, with an aim to be full time and well equipped for high season, starting December 14th-ish.

This is the longer version so that if you and Michael want to approach CNA and Grancell with a request for mediation, settlement and or claim audit, you have plenty to work with. ¬†[Ditto for any Civil Rights Litigation Firms!] ¬†You don’t have to be a lawyer to see the problems in this case. ¬†I wish I could speak like I can type, but I can’t. ¬† I used to be able to. ¬† My speech is improving, it is much slower, but as a sales person, I do my best to make it appear that I am being pensive and deliberate as I search for words and untangle my thoughts.

I will look for your response to the other issues at your earliest convenience.  The vouchers will keep me going for a while. Thanks again, Tina, that gives me a spark of hope.

Sincerely,

Linda Ayres, In Pro Per

Dear Tina and Michael:

Attached please find requests for employee discounts at the Costa Mesa property for the Fall Session of the Coastline Acquired Brain Injury program.  

This will apparently prevent further loss of time and further harm and interference with care to me, while you figure out or develop a legitimate Return To Work policy for Wyndham Worldwide.

The dates for required lodging to continue participation in the Coastline Acquired Brain Injury Program are for 8/23-8/27; 8/30-9/3; 9/7-9/10, 9/13-9/17, 9/20-9/24; 9/27 – 10/1; 10/4-10/8; 10/11 – 10/15; 10/18- 10/22; 10/25 – 10/29; 11/1 – 11/5; 11/8 – 11/12; 11/8 – 11/12; 11/15-11/19; 11/22 – 11/25; 11/29-12-3; 12/6 – 12/10.

Please return them, signed, by or before 7/14/15 so that I can register for the fall program, knowing I have a place to stay.

Please send me your proposal for return to work based on all evidence in so far, and I will reschedule meetings to discuss medical release with my doctor(s). ¬†Because I did not have the information, this week’s meetings with my interdisciplinary team were essentially wasted, other than the encouragement to seek employment law legal counsel to KNOW MY RIGHTS.

Sadly, due to Wyndham refusals to meet with me in interactive process (requested meeting since May 2015) and Wyndham refusal to provide training information for discussions  treatment team this month, please simply extend my accommodations request for continued leave through December 11, 2015. This further extension will provide time during which time the following can be accomplished:

  1. Wyndham can provide a TRIAL Return to Work proposal and offer, based on all known evidence, Upon graduation from the first year at Coastline ABI Program, it is highly possible that I may be able to return to work with minimal accommodations.   During the Fall session, because part of the intention of Coastline is to help people with brain injuries return to work or community service, an accommodation plan for Wyndham to consider would be a split week (after the 2-4 week sales training).  Attending Coastline on Mon Tue, or Tue Wed with 3 days (for example, Fri, Sat, Sun) to transition back to full time work would be a consideration, starting in late summer/early fall, to be determined.
    1. Reassignment to a new position such as VLO, or a new position that can be done virtually, such as assisting with development of a legitimate Return to Work Program in every state, starting in California (then perhaps Florida, another Wyndam hot-spot for WorkComp violations);
    2. As I have repeatedly suggested, perhaps a position could be created for me to function as an Advocate for Injured Workers or to head a team to seek a change of providers for the failed CNA insurance WorkComp coverage, irregardless of what Board Members and/or other staff may have conflicts of interest in keeping CNA. ¬†That is another issue altogether, isn’t it?
  2. Get CNA to find a local neurologist as a treating doctor and a local neuro-psycholgist as as secondary treating doctor;
    1. New private neurologist seems quite alarmed that CNA refused to have the April 2014 EEG further evaluated with medical evidence, as recommended by their neuro-consult doctor. Several more EEGs and possibly MRI’s are being scheduled
    2. Get CNA to advance “estimated PD” to facilitate attending Coastline ABI Fall session
  3. Get the necessary treatments including January 2015 authorized neuro-optometry evaluation and recommended auditory-processing LACE treatments
  4. Get further evaluations the defense wants to spend on, (once defense medical records are corrected and completed)
  5. Get proper legal counsel for employment law/FEHA/ADA violations and file complaints of continuing harm since October 2012.
  6. Submit new and past due reimbursements requests to CNA and WCAB Audit Unit with complaints re CNA failures to make  payments of estimated permanent disabilities (should have commenced last year).  I have spent more than $43,000 to survive the Wyndham WorkComp program.
  7. The additional time will also give defense time to organize and correct the mistakes and omissions on their version of the medical index prior to any further evaluations. ¬†While defense insists that, apparently, because I have not died from lack of medical care, and because I have not become homeless because of failures to provide disaiblity benefits in compliance with law and the insurance policy, that mediation for the work comp case is premature, as they know, the employment law issues are outside of work comp. ¬†I believe Grancell has an employment law division and they will most likely be happy to engage in a lawsuit that may cost Wyndham Worldwide hundreds of thousands of dollars in legal fees to defend. ¬†Maybe that’s covered in the policy as well, so no real risk to Wyndham, just more money for Grancell. ¬†Not my problem.
  8. Update complaints to DOI and FBI
  9. Update information ot the media, social and mainstream

As you know, Social Security Disability Hearing finds me chronically and permanently disabled, gives little weight to the reports of AME/QME doctors of 2013, as they ‘did not have sufficient evidence’ and it is certain that a legitimate WorkComp Judge would find the same, if not finding pure felony fraud of those reports. ¬†Social Security gives an injured work an option for Trial Return to Work. ¬† In light of this week’s Wyndham shenanigans, and the pending additional false reports Grancell apparently hopes to obtain while further churning the files, completing Coastline ABI Program through December 2015 seems to be the most streamline accommodation, with a plan in place to resume a TRIAL RETURN TO WORK at that time, assuming medical release.

 

A “structured day” is critical to someone with a brain injury, so while Wyndham, CNA and Grancell diddle further, continuation at the ABI program is essential for my overall health and progress. ¬† I have no reason to believe you will act in good faith now, as it has not been your practice yet. ¬†Remember, you both have failed to intervene in helping me get medical care or disability benefits since the date of injury. ¬†Remember, there was no ‘proper notice of MPN’ and there was no offer for a ride to medical care on the date of the incident, there have been no get well wishes, and there has only been harm and permanent disability due to the non-existence of a WorkComp program at Wyndham Worldwide/WorldMark by Wyndham. ¬†Great benefits if you’re not injured; total devastation if you are. ¬†One day, you may also get to experience it. ¬†Your knowledge will not protect you, either. ¬†You’re pawns in the bigger game of THEIR PROFITS. ¬† One day you may see that, and have some remorse for the harm you have done to me, and who knows how many others. ¬† That may be a ‘pearly gates’ accountability for you, but you will be held accountable, as we all are, for all of our actions. ¬†That’s just how life works. ¬† There are no free lunches, and no free gifts!

While one doctor had indicated that attempting the summer training sessions would be telling as to my cognitive capacity and stamina, your delays and refusals to provide information and to meet in interactive proces, make the summer session (during Coastline break) an impossibility now. ¬†I didn’t get the Oceanside and Anaheim dates until after my meetings, so I was unable to discuss with the professionals. ¬†Also, since you previously advised that lodging is not provided to trainees, since there are no trainings happening in Indio, we will probably have to wait until such time. ¬†Please please keep me posted as to the next Indio training sessions, so that it can be incorporated into a return to work plan/transition from Coastline ABI program plan.

I have no idea why you refused to provide the dates so they could be discussed with people trying to help me return to work. ¬†I could have asked the doctors and professors on an opinion to request to be in the Oceanside training, if lodging was included. ¬†As it stands, they seem as horrified as I am by the continued patterns of harm and bad faith, and they seem to think it is a hostile workplace, and a severe danger for me. ¬†:/ That’s based on what I have told them about my experiences trying to get medical care, and aborted attempts since 2012 to return to work. ¬†My deductive reasoning is still a bit off, so I must defer to friends and professionals who suggest that Wyndham means only further harm to me. ¬†I don’t want to believe that.

It is incumbent on Wyndham , as previously requested, to provide a proposal for return to work with known requested accommodations.   All of my requests have apparently been unsuccessful in facilitating interactive process.  WVO Leave Support also refused to correct the mis-statements of the existing leave extension.   Please send me a proposal for return to work incorporating all previous communications and this one.  Upon receipt of your proposal, I will make fresh appointments to discuss a Wyndham RTW proposal with professionals who can offer counsel.

As you know, time is of the essence and any accommodations requests for a transition plan from Coastline  back to work must be submitted with Fall Registration by 7/15/15.  It was in that regard that I needed the information for my meetings this week with professionals, to determine what, if any, accommodations to request.  Then, you and I were to meet after those meetings.  We tried to schedule a meeting, which I first requested when vouchers were submitted for the Summer Coastline ABI program.  So, your statements that you remain willing to meet while you refuse again to meet, are baffling, indeed, and clearly false evidence appearing real.  That was your same pattern of practice last year, when the Scripps Occupational Therapy Department Supervisor attempted to coordinate a meeting to commence the interactive proces.

If you are relying on Grancell’s staff for ADA compliance information, as a Shareholder, I must insist you seek outside counsel for compliance, and as a shareholder, I must insist that you and Michael Doughterty and other stakeholders demand an outside claim audit of the gross mishandling of my case, internally and externally.

Thank you for your email of last night indicating “… we remain willing to meet with you at a mutually agreeable time and place”. ¬† Looks nice on paper, but your words are not congruent with your actions.

For several weeks now I had been attempting to secure an appointment with you to engage in interactive process to plan return to work (as requested most recently as far back as May 2015).  While my treatment team was astonished at your email requesting to meet in session with the doctor and me, and your refusal to provide any preliminary information, as I repeated requested, I needed information from you regarding dates of the upcoming training sessions for a Wednesday 8 am meeting at Coastline and a Thursday morning meeting in Palm Springs.

Once I advised you that I have been encouraged to seek legal counsel with an employment lawyer regarding my legal rights, you finally provided the dates of the next couple of training sessions, AFTER MY MEETINGS.  I will not see the doctor again for a few weeks, and we will explore the possibilities further.

As Wyndham has all the medical information and doctor reports from WorkComp doctors ¬†necessary and pages of my requests and proposals, including the spreadhsheet I did of IF THS/THEN THAT scenarios, ¬†and I have even provided you with JANN.org and SCRIPPS Brain Injury Day Treatment Center info on what it would take to have SCRIPPS participate in the interactive process, including their fee of approximately $20,000 for the services – to include further speech, occupational and physical therapy – ¬†I don’t know how else to work with you to attempt return to work.

Consensus amongst friends and providers is that I must take actions to protect myself. ¬†Many suggest dismissing hopes to make a difference in the lives of other injured workers violated, maimed, and permanently disabled by WorkComp practices such as those I have endured at the cruel hands of Wyndham Worldwide, CNA aka American Casualty and the Grancell team of legal goons with those of the WCAB is a philosophical difference. ¬†I have talked with and met too many uninjured professionals who know the truths, and refuse to act. ¬†I truly believe that THOSE WHO HAVE THE PRIVILEGE TO KNOW, HAVE THE DUTY TO ACT. ¬† I know. ¬†I have a duty to act, to save my own life, expose the horrors and atrocities of the abuses of injured workers in California, America and the World, by people making a living off looking the other way, or making up stories to obfuscate facts. Such practices allowed the horrors of Hitler’s Germany to happen, not unlike the WorkComp extermination programs we have today, that profit people like you harming people like me.

So, please please please return the employee discount vouchers by 7/15/15 so that I can proceed with registration for the Fall session of the Coastline Acquired Brain Injury Program — One of the subjects for the next session is Emotional Intelligence at the Workplace, and I am studying the information found on the internet, SELF DEFENSE AGAINST THE CORPORATE PSYCOPATHS. http://www.softpanorama.org/Social/Toxic_managers/Communication/rules_of_verbal_self_defense.shtml ¬† ¬† On LinkedIn, I always enjoy the writings of Liz Ryan about the HUMAN WORKPLACE. ¬† You might find it of interest, also.

I look forward with anticipation to the Wyndham Proposal for return to work scheduling, training, accommodations and more. ¬†I know the employment law lawyer will wonder why I have not received such a proposal, and will likely find your request to meet with my doctor in person, on my dime, more astonishing that I did. ¬†(It does not, Tina, conform to ADA/EEOC, FEHA requirements, and whoever told you it did, gave you info to bury you. ¬†Somebody else wants your job or what? ¬†Get better sources for your information on return to work, and get some training. ¬†It’s available. ¬†“GOOGLE IT”

Hi Tina: I have not heard back from you or Melissa regarding the dates of upcoming sales training or confirmation of the tentative meeting in Indio today at 1230. Per earlier email: “I can meet you at 1230 in Indio on Jul 9. Will that work for you?” I will consider your failure to respond further confirmation that no interactive process meeting will take place yet.. In light of the continued bad faith and lightly masked hostilities, I will seek legal counsel regarding the continuous pattern of FEHA and ADA violations, and your A-typical attempts to deceive and delay return to work. Thank you. I will be back with you and Michael Dougherty, as the bulk of the violations since 2012 seem to rest on your desks as this moves out of WorkComp jurisdiction to EEOC and State and Federal ADA violations, in a pattern of continuous harm and bad faith.

Hi Tina, Thank you for your response.  I still need to know the upcoming dates of the next sales training sessions for my appointment tomorrow and for the Coastline transition plan and accommodations proposal.   Please advise today. Just the dates to facilitate informed discussions and planning, please.
I already found out that Palm Springs sales office is temporarily closed. Please provide anticipated reopen date, as location is another factor of concern in planning, important to me and to my treatment teams.  Your non-response to the dates was similar when Scripps Brain Injury Program tried to help me return to work in August 2014, and when Dr Ponton in 2012 tried. Please try to be more helpful. They are just dates, subject to change, to facilitate discussion for return to work.  The dates are what I keep asking you for and refusal to provide them seems very hostile and in bad faith. I hope I am wrong.   I consider it to be continued bad faith and refusal to engage in timely interactive process.
I will take your letter to the doctor tomorrow and get back to you asap regarding availability, willingness and what else may be required, along with any additional fees that may be required.¬†¬† The agenda for tomorrow’s meeting is already set and I NEED TO KNOW THE DATES OF THE NEXT TRAINING SESSIONS to be fully prepared for my doctor’s appointment. ¬† It’s a treatment session not a business session tomorrow morning. ¬†I can still meet with you and Melissa tomorrow afternoon for a preliminary meeting, pre doctor session to ensure a productive movement forward. I can meet you at 1230 in Indio on Jul 9. Will that work for you?¬† Daniel Elliott @CNA used a similar tactic in 2012 to obfuscate truth and waste a treatment session with then treating Dr DeGoede, referred to by CIGNA, the Wyndham EAP provider, then CNA cheated the doctor out of 4 agreed upon session payments and then doctor would not even see me on a cash basis. I will not allow you to ruin my opportunity for treatment with this doctor too. As you know, since I represent myself in pro per, I am required to copy defense on all communication with you.

Subject: Linda Ayres – Return to Work Planning July 2015

Hi Tina, Will you please advise the date of the next two sales training classes? I want to discuss with my new doctor team. It’s looking up for a trial return to work. One doctor suggested that a trial return to work could be very beneficial and the two weeks of training telling. While people of “low average” intelligence can certainly sell time share, despite my cognitive impairments and IQ loss, if I can successfully overcome the frontal lobe, auditory and visual processing issues etc, I too may be able to succeed again. ūüėÄ I need to know the dates of the July/August class and location and confirmation that Palm Springs Sales office is still open. I also need to know when we can meet to explore planning. In 2012 one of the WorkComp doctors responded to my question, “When will I know I am ready to return to work” with a snippy, “You’ll know you’re ready when you are back at work.” Many other doctors have said that had I received care in the first year, it was highly probable I may have returned to work in months. Again, thanks to CNA, I have simply been permanently and egregiously harmed. Too bad Wyndham has such a poor WorkComp policy. As you know, Fred Sachs sent me another useless list to work from to find a primary treating neurologist. Seemed to be the same useless one Daniel Elliott sent. Thanks to Social Security Disability and benefits, I may be able to get some legitimate medical treatment from brain injury experts, while building a treatment team for the long term medical requirements likely necessary due to the untreated brain injury of 1/9/12. I now have a local chiropractor, neurologist and psychologist. For the psychologist, for my next session, we will explore return to work planning. As you know, I want to engage in the interactive process for RTW planning. I have not received a corrected version, as requested weeks ago, of the current extension. Let’s get some real dates on the table and a meeting on calendar. Thank you. Linda Ayres, In Pro Per Lindaayres@aol.com Workcomplinda@gmail.com PS. I am hopeful of return to work without a FEHA Lawsuit….and being the Top In House Sales Rep in Palm Springs Ever….!

I am tired of the abuse by Grancell and CNA……and I am proceeding with complaints to “supplemental people” everywhere. InjuredWorkersUniting; Silent No More

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.

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

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¬Ä¬ď 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 ¬Ä¬úI 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 ¬Ä¬úI √ʬĬôm 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 ¬Ä¬úI . . . .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.√ʬĬĚ

 

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
