Re: Charter Tech Willing To Help Those In Need

Nice gesture. Last I heard though. You can get fired from doing this and its not allowed according to Charter rules.

Seriously, a stand up tech, willing to donate his personal time, and he can get axed for this ?

Sheesh.

I noticed one of the former Direct Forum group posted here recently one or two times, and identified himself... then his posts were removed.

I'll remember this when I cancel my service in the next month or so.

I DEFINITELY WILL REMEMBER THAT THE NEW CHARTER CEO
MR TOM RUTLEDGE and his new executive manglement posse DOESN'T GIVE A CRAP ABOUT GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE and WILL ACTUALLY PENALIZE EMPLOYEES THAT TRY AND GO THE EXTRA MILE FOR the folks that pay his darn salary.....THE CUSTOMERS!

Yes,
I have heard that also and it is VERY sad what employers can get away with now a days.

Where my kid just got hired into, they test if you smoke even and won't hire you if you do. Personally, that just takes anyway any basic rights you had right there. I can understand not smoking there and in public places, etc., but to not hire you and they can fire you, because you smoke on your own time is just absurd!

If a company can show that their health insurance rates will be lower that is how they justify it.

Yes, I was talking about ChtrGeorge [vickbmx], and if you do a search you will see that his posts I was talking about... AFTER "shutting down" the direct forum ... have disappeared. *

I agree they have stopped posting also.

*Mea culpa.... I searched again, and the posts I saw ARE there. Remembering how they stopped Defiant from posting for awhile, I expected them to stop any Direct forum members as well.

Yes,
I know what their reasoning is for that, but then they should just deduct more from that individuals pay for insurance, not try to tell them what they can do on their own time!!

I agree with that also. One of the very few bright spots Charter ever had!

It's more than just the insurance rates. Smokers tend to be sick more often and most don't just smoke on their free time (ie: when not at work).

At a time when all companies are trying to cut cost and with the number of people available for any given position, they can pretty much use any criteria for selection that they want.
