FIRST ON 3: Boiling Spring Lakes subject of workplace violence complaint

READ MORE:

BOILING SPRING LAKES, NC (WWAY) -- Boiling Spring Lakes is under the microscope after receiving a workplace violence complaint from the NC Department of Labor.

BSL City Manager Paul Sabiston says he got the complaint yesterday. The letter says, "A hostile working environment exists due to the verbal threats of physical harm and intimidation from management personnel." Sabiston says he believes the complaint is from a former employee, and he is not too concerned.

"I think the complaint comes from a disgruntled former employee, and I've begun to research it, and so far I have found nothing that would amount to a hostile work environment in Boiling Spring Lakes either recently or the last two years," Sabiston said.

Sabiston has a week to write back to the Department of Labor with his findings and the action he has taken to correct the situation.

BSL

I was at the meeting on the 7th of Feb. and watched a numb nut bash Susie while I sat there and thought about how White had bashed Craig Castor at the pre election forum and at the same time witnessed that one of the citizens was shut down while she was trying to make a point about the crooked mayor. All of a sudden the committee said it is a new rule that there will be " no personal bashing" at any of the meetings anymore! All in a matter of minutes!
We lost a real good officer because of the vendetta the mayor had against him...a personal attack! We can't voice an opinion but he can fire someone ( or have them fired) because he doesn't like them? Because the officer wouldn't LIE for him? Somehow that doesn't seem right, now does it? But you elected him again. Someday you might be the sorry ones.....at least I can hope.

I was at that meeting and

I was at that meeting and saw the email this "numb nut" referred to. You're saying it's okay to lie about someone in writing, but the person you lie about can't defend themselves. Are we in America? I don't know either of those people, but that speaker looked directly at the person and the person never said a word in defense. I guess the writer never thought someone would see that email. Folks, we have a great thing going here. Grow the f up.

Crying

The finger pointing continues because the losers can't cope with the loss. And Chicken Little keeps yapping getting ready for his run for Mayor. How pathetic. Are any of you buying into this garbage?

Are you saying that "Chicken

Are you saying that "Chicken Little" is Commissioner Forte?? Cause if you are, I agree. That man..hell, he's not worth our time.

People are so snowed in BSL

Now that he has control of the board...he won't stop. White/Sabastion has the DA office in there pocket...so how much true investigations will really go on. It is a waste of the employees time...of course three is better than one to be "a disgruntled employee" the heads will keep rolling. Our city is in a sad shape and no help in sight.

Who is Frank Moats ?

Who Is Frank Moats?

Frank Moats is a council member

Frank Moats knows the truth and he will tell it to Jack Diddley.
Frank Moats likes to Surf Fish in his spare time.

I hope this doesn't turn out

I hope this doesn't turn out to be another Leland/Jayne situation. It is easy to blame a "disgruntled former employee". The good thing is that it is an outside agency doing the investigation so they are more likely to get at the truth.

I suppose it is about time

I suppose it is about time for BSL to get in on the corruption that seems to be going on everywhere else. Bring on the investigators. Sounds like Sabiston is planning on sweeping this under the carpet, or at least that is what his intentions appear to be. Not very professional. I think he should show more concern. Let me guess who the disgruntled employee might be...........

Funny. Sabiston has been

Funny. Sabiston has been there six months, but knows about the work environment two years ago. Ask Dave Lewis about the threats and intimidation. Three exemplary, long time employees are now gone at the hands of White and Sabiston. Nothing new though, talk to the folks at Shallotte and Roanoke Rapids.

Sabiston

You are so right! Ask Dave Lewis! You are so smart! Good point! I think there is a lot of stuff that should and maybe will be brought out now since someone had the courage to bring it to be investigated.....IF ONLY someone besides Sabiston would do the investigating!!!! He is just another puppet for White!! Not good!

We tried to tell you but you

We tried to tell you but you didn't want to hear it! Will anyone ever listen? How about you, Jack Diddley?

Jack Diddley was stationed in Spunkendorf !

Jack Diddley ate cabbage on Bratwurst. Jack Diddley WILL be at the next meeting. He is getting a ride from Frank Moats.
Jack Diddley does gig flounder things !

More wa wa cry baby stuff

We did not listen the first time, the next time or even the next time for the exact reasons we are not listening this time. Just more of the same BS and lies. When are you going to catch on that we are not as stupid as you? Can you spell LOST? As in, you LOST...AGAIN!

No one loses until the

No one loses until the "game" is over. It isn't over yet. Stop sounding like a three year old.....grow up and fight the fight for what is right.
