Professional Transportation, Inc. PTI PTI's Erwin Branch Sexually Harassed My Mother, Then Fired Her to Cover Themselves Erwin Tennessee
*UPDATE EX-employee responds: Same old game years later and nothing has changed
This is the very company that screwed my mother over and purposefully dragged her through a 4-year lawsuit before she had any closure.
I want it to be know that recently, this company was FOUND GUILTY of sexual harassment and retaliation (though somehow, they dodged the wrongful termination conviction). Even more treacherous was the fact that my mother had their admissions of guilt ON TAPE, but during the trial, they were allowed to take snippets to use to their advantage while my mother was not allowed to play her portions to verify her claims. Even so, the jury found PTI guilty of two of the three charges (as listed above).
My mother suffered hellish nightmares and was diagnosed with PTSD after having endured everything she did at this company. She was a loyal employee, picking up railroad crew and transporting them to other states, never really sleeping because she was always on call. Almost ALL of the crew-members she transported were men, but they respected her and if they hit on her, they only did it once because she'd let them know in a hurry she was a happily married woman. But it was never the crew she had to worry about: she was sexually harassed, patronized and humiliated by this company's OWN EMPLOYEES. They never knew she taped the conversations, and she got them ON TAPE trying to cover their tracks before a huge lawsuit was filed. And then, thinking they were eliminating the problem, they FIRED her.
Do you know the settlement my mother received from these low-lives in compensation for her suffering? A mere $6000. THAT'S. IT. And before they paid her that measly sum, they fought, kicking and screaming, and tried to appeal the decision, spent even more money just to try to keep from paying my mother $6000 which, to them, is pocket change.
What's funny is now this conviction is on their record. Hopefully, it can be found with ease... if not, I'll always be around to make sure everyone knows how crooked this dastardly place is. They spent over $300,000 on this case in their defense, to no avail. They could instead have given that $300K to my mother, avoided a lawsuit and kept this conviction off their record. But let this be a testament to how cruel and greedy these bastards are.
This is only the beginning, my friends. :) You can erase this if you want to, but I will go to EVERY FORUM and EVERY CLIENT with this information and I hope through it all, you at least feel some semblance of the torment you put my mother through. I'm not going anywhere.
