If that Iraq vet wanted to get back at doug from hartford insurance he could take that case to the fed, its a federal law that a soldier deployed to a combat zone must have his civilian job held or the employer can and will be fined and worse.

Good point. Its Doug Robinson from Utica national by the way and I believe the Vet did look into that aspect. What Utica national did was elimanated his position, so when he got back the the job was gone. He was at the Amory and they called him and told him to come in. He showed up in his uniforma and they told him his position had been elimanted and he would not have a job when he got off active duty.

And the killer is that he worked for Utica National for more than 25 years, fought to keep Doug Robinson safe in both Gulf wars and was thrown to the curb without out the smallest bit of loyalty or respect.

MD is a standup guy. One of the best people I've had the honor of knowing.....and working with....I've known him 30 years. Does anyone ever even have to ask the question who you'd want covering your back in a touch time---him or Doug Robinson. Pretty obvious answer.

I heard that Doug Robinson also "eliminated" the positions of several people that were less than 6 months from their retirement date. Really cuts down on the benefit expenses. I wonder if he also eliminated all the Yaha clubs memberships for the executives and those expensive "marketing trips". I hear Detroit calling....

Hell you should check out Fraternal Composite - that place sucks ass. The owner and her daughter are awesome and most of the workers are really cool, but Bill is a total fuckstick. Thinks he's god gift to everyone. Plus they let their friggin dogs run all over the place. It's a friggin shit pit.

Tiny's, hands down. Joanne Gerace is the worst person in the world to work for - I used to have people (her regulars and FRIENDS) ask how I worked for her. Yet she is politically connected so the politicians hang out there, St. Patty's Day stuff is huge there, and she is always in the OD for useless reasons. Horrible woman to work for.

Hartford Insurance Co did the same thing!!!!! One long term employee sued them and WON!!!!! It was an out of court settlement and never hit the papers.

I heard that LB had this old guy working for them at a certain location. The guy sat in a chair when Tony came in to check on him. Wouldn't you know the friggin guy was dead. Stiff. Gone. Tony told him he had to work extra hours or else. The guy did not answer so Tony took that as a yes. Next morning the old guy got rolled out on a gurney for his next assignment of course. Thats LB for you. If you are alive your their man.

i know for a fact LB told a guy when he was drunk he had to work but a couple weeks later when he came in on a scheduled work day drunk they fired him, why would you force someone who is drunk to work and then a couple weeks later when he does it fire him, makes no sense to me.

I have never worked at this place, but sitting at the counter you see and hear a lot. The Patio Drive owners treat the employees pretty bad.

radiology associates of new hartford. working for a doctor is one thing but working with 14 doctors that all want different things is like kindegarten. Hint.....you were born the same way we were and you will die the same way. Who cares what profession we pick, treat people with respect. Not just patients but your employees.

people with money giving professions don't care about any one but themselves. If you dont make what they make your a nobody and that's all we middle class will ever be. Nick labella and The Goon squad are prime examples of this!

You make a leap when you assume people think these people are "better" than anyone in any way at all.

I have known the LaBellas for years. I have heard them gloat over fking people over. I never knew such a day would come where their pasts would confront them so boldly. Bad people disguised they are.
