I work for Aisin in Seymour at plant 1. Theres a guy named John who worked at plant 2 and who was in the Marine Corps and went to Iraq .He got hurt over in Iraq. And over the years things got worse. So about 4-5 months ago the DR. put him off work.I ran into his wife last night at Jay C and asked how they were doing thats how I know all this. Aisin is going to fire him this week and that is wrong. A guy goes to war for this country, serves our country spends 17 years working at Aisin and they get rid of him like that. To top it all off they denied his short term disability because his injury was war related and they dont pay for war related injuries. So instead of Aisin going ahead and firing him because the DR. said he would never be able to work again and draw unemployment after his 12 weeks fmla was up Aisin said no it would cost them money. He got approved for Disability right away butit wont kick in for a month or 2. But its a shame the way they treat or vets.
Is their any laws protecting our vets. Its a shame I work for a company that did this. I know them very well and their good people.

There are very specific laws from the ADA what a company can and cannot do with a disabled worker, military or not, so I would suggest that the family get in touch with them and find out if there are any options available in this case. With out knowing the specifics of the case and if resonable accomodations were offered by the company it's hard to offer anything but to refer them to the ADA.

If that company knew he was a vet and Im sure they did. They should of paid him out of their own pocket. But isnt it a Japaneese company? If so thats why they didnt pay him. But the American worker running it and working their should of done something. I dont know about all that ADA stuff but sonds like to me he has a hell of a law suit. If I was him I would sue. They sure as hell didnt care about him. So why shoud he care about them. Whats his Johns Last name. What a shame. Shme on you Aisin!

American Disabilities Act it protects the employees from being discrimanated against. So if this is a factual account of what happened then it sounds like he has a case.

I worked with John at plt 2 . he and I were in the same department and worked side by side on plenty occasions. He is a great guy that would help anyone. I was greatly saddened to hear they were letting him go under such seemingly uncaring conditions. And the funny thing is they let me go too because the work I did for them made me have to get surgeries that have left me unable to work too. And they refuse to admit that it was my job that caused the injuries. I had worked for them for nine years and had complained of pain for a year and they refused to do anything about it. John also complained, because I heard him, we worked side by side. We both needed off the job we were on but management refused to do anything. There are jobs that we could have been moved to. There are hundreds of temps at Aisin and it was Aisin's desision not to put us on a job that we could do.
This is not speculation-------there are 5 other guys there that know and are willing to stand up and say it too.
Hang in there John, we are all praying for you and your family.

I wish I was a lawyer. That company should be punished. I wish him good luck. Hope he does get a lawyer if he doesnt allready have one.Whats this country coming too. We take better care of illegal mexicans than we do our vets. Good Luck

I dont know him but I used to work at Aisin and that doesnt suprise me one bit. They never have treated their people very well. Hope things get better for him.

This company Aisin is horrible.I work in plnt 2 not with him but close to his dept and close to his wife.Not one person in his dept or Aisin has stepped up to help them out,or a supervisor in his or his wifes dept.I cant I dont have the freedom to walk around and take up money or I would but I cant. . He has been off for 6 months now. I dont know if he has a lawyer, but I hope he gets one.

Aisin has also hired over a hundred veterans, the majority of which do their jobs, make the best of what they have, go home and have a life. For those of us who have served, we do not use what happened to us in the past as an excuse for anything that heppens to us in the future. Federal and state laws protect people from abuse. Companies are not idiots. If the person got fired, there's a good chance that he fired himself for abusing the protections the law gives everyone. Sounds like we have the makings of a whine and cheese party all over again.

Rock you should be ashamed of yourself for even saying anything. Your a back stabber and have always been one. Wait until he reads what you wrote. Him and his wife was there when you and your wife needed them. You call yourself a friend. Aisin had to fire him because so he could draw his pension out from the military. Plus there was no sense in Aisin holding on to his job because he was out of FMLA anyway. So Rock before you open your mouth know your facts you low down back stabbing son of a bitch.

The Aisin company boys !! to save their reputation. It can't be regular workers, because they know how much Aisin has taken from them. If you have been there for a few tears, then you know that COMMUNICATION meetings mean that they are telling you how much more it will cost you to work there and nobody can raise their hand and ask any questions. They isolate your comments by way of DIRECT LINES BOX. And then they come to you and answer ,,,sometimes.
The workers there have NO representation at all and Aisin dont want them to have any.
I would like to see one person stand up in a communication meeting and ask " why do we keep paying and loosing while the company maintains and grows at our expense . Cost of living ? not even close to actual ... Health care , every year we pay more and more until they will pay none. Soon there will be a tax on what our health care is worth, which means its not a benefit anymore.
The way they treat people is why there were unions in the first place.

A lawyer wont do any good,Aisians was withing thier rights,but he supposdely got approved for disability so they should be taking care of him.A have a relative that works there,not a supervisor or anything and they treat him great.Com panies any more have too many regulations to go by and connot treat workers bad so I doubt it's as bad as most of you make it out to be.Maybe some of you are just lousy workers.
You must be a illegael immigrant. Learn how to spell our language please. Of course you agree were paying your healthcare for your 6 bambinos. You get free education free lunches. Its odvious your illegael so dont comment.

he wasen't drafted so his service was by choice...and he was paid well for it ..IF he was in combat. Aisin is just like all other companies in this area ...we are all cheap and easy to replace.

Yea Rock I bet you wont open your mouth in front of him to Johns face. Your not man enough. Youve always been a back stabber and two faced son of a bitch. One thing I can say about John is he wont stab you in the back he will tell you straight to your face. Rock your a piece of shit and everyone knows it.

Ashamed? 45 years ago on Feb. 20, 1968 I had both my legs blown off by a VC RPG in Khe Sanh during the TET offensive. I received a Bronze Star and a Purple Heart for my service.
When I got back home people would spit on us for our service. The fact that I was in a wheel chair didn't matter. It is amazing that so many years later people like Carol and others on this forum still spit on us.
When I shared Carol's comments with my buddies at the VA we all roared in laughter. One good thing - Carol has earned the distinction of making our prayer list on the first try...of individuals we pray will roast in hell for all eternity. Semper Fi.

I think its funny all you dumb people are still at Aisin. Its odvious its not the same company it used to be. Im glad I took the buy out and never looked back. I would take this as a blessing. Atleast you found out who your true riends are. And Holly its not the people you thought was your frieds. The people at Aisin should be ashamed. And Aisin really should be ashamed.
