Waterbury, Connecticut

Terminix is a rip off. I worked for them; and, yes, it’s true.  I have worked in the state of Connecticut for five years for Terminix International. I was put in place when the state filed suit in 1999. I was a compliance officer in the Trumbull branch, Waterbury branch, and Wallingford branch.  I was hurt in July 2004 and have had two neck surgeries. Terminix has turned its back on me after all I did when the state was going to close us down.  I worked my tail off for this company.  Now I can’t even get a return phone call. All I need is my employment and pay history for my lawyer. I never filed workers’ comp. I always planned to go back to work but now after going back twice and both times needing surgery, I have a plate in my neck. I suffer from bad headaches and I can’t work.  After my last call dated 3/30/06 to try and get the new CEO of Terminix so I can get the help I need, I was called back by Amy Dancy, Compliance Chief.  When I asked for the CEO name, number, or e-mail, I was told “Well, let me see what I can do.” So now I can’t have the CEO’s name?  But the next day, I got a letter from Terminix certified stating that I have been on leave for one year as of April 11, 2006, as accordance with the one-year policy my leave status will be terminated. That’s just great. Now I’ll have no job, no health benefits, and still no help with something that is so easy to do.  I have tried to call the region manager, Glenn Newman; no calls ever returned.  I have tried everything.  It’s sad.
