I debated, in sleepless nights, trying to decide if I should publish this project because of concerns with OSA trying to "Handle" before shit hits the fan? But the law is the law and nobody is above it won. So, I'm going ahead with Forum Threads in case others wish to input opinions and suggestions. Unlike the SEA ORG, Narconons in the USA can NOT claim "Religious" protection from investigation and prosecution for violating US Labour Laws for Narconon Interns. In Canada, I went after Narconon Trois-Rivieres for Labour Law Violations from not paying minimum wages and WON easily. THE LAW IS THE LAW Because I'm quite busy with Human Rights Commission Cases in Canada, I avoid taking on something without merit - - this has merit, with devastating ramifications if Narconon loses, which I expect they will. http://blog.nwjobs.com/careercenter/hiring_interns_for_free_labor_is_a_no-no.html http://tinyurl.com/be6h8bq An interesting decision in Canada: http://www.hrcr.org/safrica/equality/quebec_coutu.html For Victims who feel they should have been paid wages for work performed, the government will investigate and make a decision at no cost to the complainant. The following one is for Colorado, but each State has similar options: https://secure.cdle.state.co.us/eCompExt/Default.aspx http://www.prnewswire.com/news-rele...ccording-to-outten--golden-llp-142678445.html The Beginning of the End of the Unpaid Internship: http://business.time.com/2012/05/02/the-beginning-of-the-end-of-the-unpaid-internship-as-we-know-it/ # # # Employers: misclassification of interns and other employees can be costly http://www.lexology.com/library/detail.aspx?g=b9cb5a71-44f0-4508-94a8-0f9dce5109a7 [SNIP] ***(Case Precedents)*** - - In my opinion: What makes Narconon's exploitation of Patients so insidious under State and USA Federal Law is using vulnerable people with disabilities; as per U.S. Department of Health & Human Services. [These risks include: medication and health problems, societal enabling, a lack of identification of potential problems, and a lack of accessible and appropriate prevention and treatment services.] These desperate victims have paid $30,000 to be treated for their disease of addiction and ONLY received Scientology Training Routines and Auditing Sessions without the Victims awareness or consent. In fact, the Victim did not have the “mental capacity to form intent” when signing documents upon arrival and intake. Following 3-6 months of Cult indoctrination, leaving the patient disoriented, confused, in fear and lost, Narconon recruits the patient to work for Narconon as an INTERN, without remuneration or concern for the patient’s need for qualified aftercare; helping them to remain drug-free. The Patient’s work is for the benefit of the EMPLOYER for the daily operations of the center; ONLY the employer benefits and no INTERN training received by the INTERN - - AND/OR any education that could be used in any other industry or work place except for another Narconon located elsewhere.
