It should come as no surprise that the mortgage field services industry is marching to the beat of Foreclosurepedia’s predictions. I don’t think there is any argument with the statement that the days of the Nationals are gone the safeguard properties of the world the Jewish mafia in Valley View Ohio are dinosaurs and just like the dinosaurs they are becoming extinct the National Association of Mortgage Field Services (NAMFS) has, once again, demonstrated by and through 5 brothels that the biggest bang for the buck comes from cutting labors throat and what precisely do I mean by that well here is what I mean,
Joe Badalamenti and his ambulance chasing lawyer son-in-law Tom Kalas thought they dodged the big bullet when Kelly Brown’s Qui Tam went South. Only problem with that theory is that their biggest Client, US Bank, didn’t too much like getting Sealed Complaints thrown in their face where the starting offer was $100 Million in violations.
We received a call from a Source speaking on condition of anonymity that Five Brothels allegedly laid off 60 employees Friday and that they had allegedly lost the US Bank Contract. Nothing new under the sun as I have no doubt that they will follow in the footsteps of every other NAMFS Member whom got pinched as well — Berghorst Enterprises, Buczek Enterprises, Boyd Property Preservation, et al.
Foreclosurepedia reached out to the State of Michigan with respect to the board notice and whether or not Five Brothels had issued a WARN Notice. We have not received a reply; however, we did not see such Notice as being issued or recorded in the State of Michigan. Everybody understands that WARN Notices allow those employees who are going to be disenfranchised the opportunity to at least put food on the table and potentially be retrained to reintegrate within the workforce. It would appear to me that Five Brothers could give two shits about Labor. And the sooner that the admin and clerical types realize they, too, are on the chopping block, perhaps the Mortgage Field Services Industry will begin to realize that the lawyers are coming and Eric Miller cannot protect them any longer.
While Michigan has no layoff notice requirements of its own, state agencies assist in enforcing the requirements of the federal Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act (WARN Act). The WARN Act imposes restrictions on the way layoffs are handled. It is designed to give employees advance notice of a layoff in order to find another job or to seek retraining in a new occupation and to give the state adequate preparation to assist the affected workers. There is a discussion of the WARN Act available.
The WARN Act requires employers to notify their state dislocated worker unit when layoffs occur. In Michigan, employers must notify the state’s Workforce Development Agency, state of Michigan Workforce Investment Act (WIA) section. Upon receiving the notice, the WIA Section initiates a Rapid Response Team Meeting that involves a mix of state agencies and local service providers, the private sector, and organized labor (if employees are covered by a collective bargaining agreement). At the initial meeting, these participants will help coordinate and deliver information and services. The meeting is designed to obtain information about the characteristics of the workforce; to determine what services are needed by the employees and what is being offered by the employer (and union, if applicable); provide an overview of available dislocated worker services; provide general information about unemployment benefits; and determine the parties’ responsibilities for carrying out various aspects of any agreed-upon adjustment program.
We will stay on top of this fast moving story and in the meantime, Foreclosurepedia is issuing an ISTAR Alert for any Contractor whom is owed money by Joe and Tom.
