Fired UPS Employee Keeps Showing Up at His Old Job

UPS jobsUPS 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.

Shame on UPS?? Ms. Genova - you are an idiot. Perhaps, they should just shoot him for trespassing. Would that make you feel better, Ms. Genova?

You would think that the lack of a paycheck for 2 months would bring this (obviously disturbed) individual to realize that he was no longer employed there.

What's the problem? This is a free country, he can go wherever he pleases, even if it's private property. After all, we get hundreds of illegal aliens transiting our borders every day across Americans' private property, and the government wants to make that legal, so why make an issue over someone doing the same thing here?

Very true with today's thinking. As long as he's on the premisis, UPS should be paying him for his time and benefits too for hurting his feelings. It's not his fault they don't want to find him something to do.

What this guy is doing is a form of stalking, and he has no grounds to sue UPS. UPS should also take out a restraining order which can be effective immediately, rather than waiting for court proceedings. If he's been violent at work in the past, they want to keep him away from their facility and their employees. I can't imagine what this writer is thinking by recommending he sue UPS when he is clearly the one at fault here. He sounds dangerous to me -- dangerous to other UPS employees and to the facility. It's guys like him who show up at work with a gun and just start shooting randomly.

He may show up , but he is not allowed past the main security gate, he will not be able to log-in even if he did get in and he is also no longer on the active payroll... so showing up in the parking lot is for other reasons than to work?

The author of this article treats the story as if it were an amusing little situation involving a guy who is a bit quirky---"He might file a lawsuit on behalf of himself" and "shame on UPS." But I see a man who is about to "go postal." Nothing funny about it.

Mr.

Thank you, Mac, for making the statement that is probably going through the minds of most sane people. The "author" of this is quite possibly getting as close to "going postal" as Mr. Anderson may be. If not that bad, she is clearly delusional and should be medicated herself.

Another completely dumb article...and not worth the time to read. It says absolutely nothing except that the author of the article can not write well.
I do find it ironic that her book is entitled: Her latest book is OVER-50: HOW WE KEEP WORKING. She blogs on the subject --
YES SHE DOES! hey..SHE COULD BE PALIN'S RUNNING MATE!

Didnt George Costanza have a job like this? Or was it Kraemer?
