Statement from Alpine Access

We received this statement from Alpine Access this evening:
“Mr. Guest is a former employee with Alpine Access who was terminated on November 15, 2011 for performance and numerous attendance issues (hundreds of hours outside of those contested by Mr. Guest). There are attendance and performance-related criteria associated with Mr. Guest’s employment position at Alpine Access that he was expected to meet. Mr. Guest was provided with sufficient time (5+ months) and counseling in an effort to improve his performance and attendance issues to meet those objective criteria. Unfortunately, Mr. Guest was unsuccessful in meeting the performance and attendance expectations of his position at Alpine Access and he was separated from his employment as a result.”“We understand that Mr. Guest is alleging that his employment with Alpine Access was terminated as a result of absences he incurred that were associated with unfortunate incidences related to his wife. Mr. Guest’s allegations are completely false and defamatory. It is absurd to think that a 13-year old, family-oriented Company with over 5000 employees would treat one of its own in such an uncompassionate, heartless manner.”“We wish Mr. Guest and his family the very best going forward.”
I have my doubts for sure. I have worked for the company for a while and I haven’t had a bad experience. Of course, now I will be called one of those that were paid by the company to post here. The show from yesterday did mention that you researched on Google. You treat that as legitimate? 99% of people that post their comments on the Internet are disgruntled people. By no means am I making light of his situation, it really is a tragedy about his wife’s miscarriage.
I would want to know how many points he already had on his record for showing up late, or being absent without previous notice. The points that you can get before you are fired are higher than just missing two days. Or, also, how was his performance at his job? Was he able to focus on his job during his work hours and not constantly jumping off the phones to deal with other things? Again, not being cruel, but it is hard to separate home life when you work at home especially if your significant other is home at the same time. Alpine is a regular job, you just work from home. You can’t just pop off at various times because you have things to do. Just as a brick and mortar job, that would leave the business having to make up for your hours.
Folks, Isaac has given his story, Here’s Alpine’s. I thank Alpine Access for their prompt response.
