A liar and a bludger

Some people really take diabolical liberties.

This liar and bludgers really takes the cake.

An “injured” worker who took more than a year off work was snapped by a private investigator in a fit condition, and has been ordered to pay her employer $1500.

Barbara Twentyman, who worked as a night fill worker in the clothing department at The Warehouse in Taupo, lost her case at the Employment Relations Authority against The Warehouse for its alleged failure to provide a safe and healthy work environment.

Twentyman injured her left shoulder while lifting products in February 2012. That same month she claimed that she sustained ongoing issues which felt like a “heart attack” as a result of concrete dust at work.

The former employee did not seek medical attention for her injury to her shoulder until a month later, with her “heart attack” symptoms being brought to her doctor’s attention two months afterwards.

The company used  photographic evidence from a private investigator it hired with the approval of ACC to document Twentyman performing tasks which should not have been possible with her injury, to prove Twentyman was fit for work.     Read more »

WOBH, informing Investment Bankers since 2010

It looks like this blog is Forsyth Barr’s prime source of news, especially about their Saab driving, Korean hating, hit and run, road rage staff members:

The ERA heard Forsyth Barr staff heard about Hallwright’s road rage incident on the Whale Oil blog site.

Hallwright says he phoned Forsyth Barr managing director Neil Paviour-Smith to tell him himself.

That is disputed by Mr Paviour-Smith, who said he called Hallwright himself.

I can’t wait to see headlines like this next year:
