The guy that brought to light all this stupidity by the Board of Directors at Southeast Works I found out recently was denied his Vacation pay and unemployment insurance. Talking about stepping on someones balls. I think Lani Churley was his supervisor that makes sense as Pam Hayes was her meal ticket. You would think they would give the guy a break with the unemployment as he could have saved our agency from the same fate as Valley Light Industries. Nice job Kara Woods (HUMAN RESOURCES) your pretty heartless. But I do understand Kara you are obligated to protect the Board as part of the whole cover-up.

Was Ms Hayes under indictment in California for Grand Larceny,embezzelment of VLI FUNDS? Did Ms Hayes have 2 sets of books to try to cover her misdeeds? We here in New York are oblivious to what kind of person Ms Hayes really is. If anyone has any further information about Ms Hayes it would be appreciated.
Mrs. Hayes was terminated on in 2011. she applied for unemployment and VLI went to bat to make sure she did not receive it. It is a matter of public record (unemployment judgment, Oct, 2011) that Ms. Hayes was denied unemployment for "Double Dipping". She was receeving pay from VLI and CARF for travel expense and food for five years and the judge found that she was ternminated for cause. She used up her appeals and was still denied unemployment. I do not wish to further comment on other aspects of what Ms. Hayes did, because they have not been adjuticated.

All that can really be said about the Board of Directors at Southeast Works is they really have nobody policing them they get to do as they want to who they want. The only way they would be accountable to staff is if one of our local newspapers or news stations got wind of the recent situation. This board wants to act like nothing ever happened and at this point no one will challenge them for there terrible decision making. It's a disgrace to all the hard working staff at Southeast Works that the Board is not Honorable.

I happen to Know for a Fact (first hand) that most of what I have read here in relation to VLI is true. I have not read one acusation on here that is not accurate. And for the record Pam would walk in everytime(when she was there)and ask someone to make her coffee. She asked me until my repeated answer of "I think theres a coffee machine back there somewhere" made her move on to ask someone else. I watched good people get fired and bad people move up. Ivan Campos and Denise Paller are as untrustworthy as Pam Hayes herself. If she should be in jail, those two should be in the next cell. How they cleared out her family after her termination but left her minions is beyond comprehension. But I guess now with their paycuts and loss of power they are actualy paying more of a price than Pam herself, but then thats how Pam rolls. As much as Pam has always loved to brag about how she single handedly build VLI up from nothing...she sure destroyed it even faster. They now get untilities repeatedly shut off,losing medical insurance, bounce paychecks and have rediculous limits on cell phones and gas for company cars due to lack of money. Unless bought out by another agency VLI will not be around for long. Congradulations Pam...great job.

You don't know anything for "fact" so shut up already and crawl back into the hole you came from. Ridiculous...

I do not know why Ms Hayes was fired, I do know that she was let go from VLI because, as the state of CA. found out, she was "double dipping" As a member of the Gov's committe on DDs and as a CARF surveyor, she charged both VLI and CARF and the Gov. for her lodging, travels and some gifts, this is a point of public record. The judge at the unemployment office in California found that she was not entitled to unemployment benefits, because she did this.So, Pam you have only yourself to thank for any decadence in your career. You appealed this twice and both times lost.

Well obviously your living it up under this same rock being that you have not posted in a while but managed to post a reply within a half hour to my first post. I understand defending your mother and I understand all of you wanting no one to shine a light on her behavior. That being said...too bad. Consequences of our actions are what grown up deal with. Your mother was able to avoid them as long as she could, they always catch up. why you feel the need to bring yourself into it is beyond me. You were a brat as an adolecent, a brat as a teen and obviously not much has changed in your adult life. I fully agree that no one should be persecuting Pam...by herself, she had help and people knew what she was doing. An adult, or her adult daughter thinking she is beyond the law, or general opinion is what is rediculous.

Oh and PS...her "PHD" was attained by her paying a job coach hourly wage at VLI to take her online tests for her. So I completely understand people questioning its validity.

TO VLI: I am truly sorry for all that you have gone through as a result of some greedy individuals. I do hope they are prosecuted to the full extent of the law.

The only reason the interim exc director at Southeast Works had that staff meeting on 8-20 was because of the newspaper article brought out 8-6 he had no other choice. The board of directors would have NEVER said anything more about the Pam Hayes hiring they wanted this to disappear. because of there foul-up they didn't want to look bad. But by hiding everything it made it worse for everyone.

To this day I still can not believe why the Board at Southast Works has not apologized to the staff about not hiring the right person to lead Southeast into it's future. We all make mistakes all that was needed was the Board to be accountable to the staff. This apology should have happened soon after Ms Hayes was gone. It seems like pride stood in the way of doing what was right.
