I am Ronald Skeen of Seabrook, Texas. For the second time in my life My Line Has Been Crossed

Steve Howe, General Manager of the Downtown Aquarium, Houston, Texas lied to the Human Resources Department of Landry’s Corporation about the circumstances of my termination. Steve lied when he said I Swore as I left his office. It Did Not Happen!

I Will file a Wrongful Termination lawsuit against the Landry’s Corporation and two other employees have asked to join with me, making it a Class Action Suit. I suspect others will follow.

The end of the Summer Season marked the need for Less Employees. Steve Howe has created reasons to Terminate too many good people. Just enough rope to Hang Himself…

Less than a week after I reported to my Supervisor, Alan Barnes that corroded gas cylinders in the Maintenance Shop posed a danger to employees. The maintenance shop shares a building with 50 tons of Red Sea Salt and a 60 thousand gallon saltwater shark tank. Alan created a story that I had been Insubordinate of his instructions to me. He forced me to sign a Coach and Council form with a threat of termination. Days later I was terminated for using profanity to an unidentified employee.

I was able to document audio and video recordings of everything I claim here and will release it to my attorney, two are Jumping Through Hoops to have me sign with them. Fourty years in my trade taught me to Cover My As.

Ronald Skeen sounds like "James Earl Skeen"

AUTHOR: Upset Customer - (USA)

Ronald Skeen is known for creating lies and always looking for a Payday that he does not earn... Never hire this guy to even fix a toilet with his toilet mouth!
