Fired UPS Employee Keeps Showing Up at His Old Job
UPS fired employee Wesley Anderson on Sept. 5, 2008, reports the New York Post. The trouble is, Anderson keeps showing up at the UPS 43rd Street facility in Manhattan. He contends he's still employed at UPS.
So, UPS filed a lawsuit against Anderson, seeking two things. One, UPS wants to bar him forever from the 43rd Street location since, as a former employee, he has an overview of how security operates. Anderson has a history of workplace violence, which was the reason he got canned. He had engaged in a package-throwing fight. And, two, UPS wants a financial remedy for all Anderson allegedly put the company through.
Anderson might consider his own lawsuit. He might file a lawsuit on behalf of himself because of the lax security at the Manhattan location, which is an area vulnerable to terrorist attack. After all, Anderson was able to enter it several times. He should have been protected against his delusion that he was still employed there. Shame on UPS.

After re-establishing herself in the public relations industry, she gradually published on the subject. Her first piece was on The Professional Woman in THE WALL STREET JOURNAL. Since then, she co-authored the book THE CRITICAL 14 YEARS OF YOUR PROFESSIONAL LIFE and myriad e-books and articles on career subjects ranging from emotional intelligence to aging. In the 1980s she attempted another change by attending Harvard Law School.
