I wanted to report that in 1997, Chris Bridge, a Food Buyer, participated in a deposition against me at Williams-Sonoma's Corporate headquarters. In this deposition, Mr. Bridge lied that I had followed him home on my scooter. Mr. Bridge took liberties by severely distorting the truth. I had not followed him in any way and was ahead of him in traffic on my way home from picking up a second vehicle on the company's property after I was terminated.

As a result of deliberate perjury he committed in a legal deposition, Mr. Bridge proved he is dishonest and cannot be trusted as a credible individual. Mr. Bridge took pleasure in wanting to misrepresent the truth about someone who used to work with him who had requested a transfer to another department. In his depo, he playfully added that he believed I was playing a ?cat and mouse? game with him that day on my scooter.

The following year in 1998, Chris Bridge had a lawsuit filed against him for Fraud and Breach of Contract in which his employer, Williams-Sonoma covered up and helped him get an eventual dismissal from. This case on file for viewing at www.Stfc.org ? San Francisco Superior Court case database, under Chris Bridge's name as a Defendant. The case file is long (see below). Mr. Bridge was accused playing games and being dishonest in his communications and dealings with a vendor called Endless Coffee.

Mr. Bridge was promoted to Food Buyer in 1997 without a college degree. He was given a company leased BMW with a sunroof and trips to Italy, as well as an on-site girlfriend. I worked hard for Mr. Bridge's department and had to ask after I was terminated for the overtime I had worked as an hourly employee, on the weekends, that was a violation of the California Labor Code. Hourly employees must be paid for overtime they incur.

Further, this company took its sweet time to reimburse me for my expenses of film each month in its unique demands I become a photographer for their store's educational employee product guides. The company agreed to pay me $1,200 for my overtime, but then filed a restraining order against me in which it got various employees to lie about me and distort information to protect itself from future liability from my claims.

I have worked for major law firms the past 8 years.

Employees Encouraged to Fabricate/Perjure Themselves

AUTHOR: Cheryl - (U.S.A.)

At his depo, Mr. Bridge relied on information of a conviction for reckless driving I had on my motor scooter in 1992. This company also used that 1991 conviction to fabricate information through another employee accusing me of attempting to run her over as they crossed the street, while I was on my scooter.

This reckless driving ticket case has another complaint filed on RipOffReport.com under the name of Officer Steve Eberhard, Palos Verdes Police Department. This reckless driving ticket was more related to a personal dispute with a police officer I attended high school with his the abuse of power thereof.

Finally, I wish to comment that men wanted to force this "fatherly" thing on me, which I viewed as a mask for sexism and a form of sexual harassment at this company. I complained about being touched by the V.P. of Retail and of being cut off from my peers. The company had also not paid me for a significant amount of overtime hours as an hourly employee I didn't receive until I left the company.

This company wanted to continue to force it's male domination over me by filing a 500 foot restraining order and covering up for its overt sexist activities.

For more information:

Officer Steve Eberhard, Palos Verdes Police Department (complaint filed on RipOffReport.com)

Williams-Sonoma (complaint filed on RipOffReport.com addressing the extraordinary restraining order I had received in 1997)

Joyce Cassells (Complaint filed on RepoffReport.com - 5 time evicted mental patient who benefited from Williams Sonoma restraining order in which police encouraged her to file complaints on me to force me off of my leased property in 1999).

Joan Woodward (Complaint filed on RipOffReport.com - former co-worker who heard of my R.O.'s through the Taraval Police department who attempted to get me fired and spoke of me in hysterics).

Scott Gross: Wealthy man I worked for who fired me the day after I got the Williams-Sonoma restraining order in 1997.

What idiots. The male species isn't worth marrying, that's for sure.
