Complaint Review: BRIGHT HOUSE NETWORKS
BRIGHT HOUSE NETWORKS - BHN brighthouse Allows primary contract holders to mislead and abuse "sub-contracted" laborers. Auburndale, Florida
*Author of original report: Example case out of Florida
Bright House Networks utilizes contracted companies for the majority of its' rsidential and commercial installation of Video, VOIP and high speed internet services. These contracted companies have mislead and abused the work force by missclassifying employees as "sub-contractors". This classification is simply an effort to avoid providing workers compensation insurance, health insurance, unemployment and overtime pay. The cost of tools, fuel, vehicle maintanance, commercial auto insurance and liability insurance also become the burden of the missclassified employee.
The treatment and control placed over these workers does not constitute "sub-contractor" status. Bright House Networks is in need of an overhaul in regard to this situation. Being a family owned corporation BHN must see the need to provide the workers that come into direct contact with their customers a fair opportunity; this will only occour when the current business model is revised and brought into compliance with state and federal laws.
