    I think it's great!
    Gradually the unsuspecting population and, apparently, the courts are coming to the realization that the company will lie, deceive and fabricate in order to get rid of people they deem to be troublemakers and unworthy of employment by the "most admired" company in the shipping business.

    Is this a secret? Is the company stupid enough to fire an employee and then say it was because he filed worker's comp? Not gonna happen. Instead the company will, as illustrated, conjure up a case against an employee and fire them for some obscure reason.

    Really makes me proud (sarcasm intended).
