Re: Mutiny at Dawn - Transpac Race 2013
My secretary did some work for me regarding the Labor Law in CA. I can file three complaints against the company
• Violation (for not providing sufficient safety and welfare of the employee, water, etc.)
• Retaliation (for threatening after you called CG)
• Wage (for not reimbursing the expenses to go home)
The boat is in the name of the corporation, was used as a tax write off, we were the employee of the company and were protected by the labor law of California. All three complaints are well documented in our correspondings (emails), video, pictures, and voice recordings. If DOL is sided on our case, the legal action will follow.
Don't bother with claiming expenses.
What about suing'em for unlawful imprisonment ("confined to berths")?
Or how about assault with a deadly weapon (the winch handle incident)?
Heck, might as well go whole-hog for attempted murder
