Can we reboot this world and start over?
>In new legal filings, MoDOT says the unborn baby “…Jaxx Jarvis would also fall within the definition of ‘employee.’”
>“When I saw that, it was disappointing,” attorney Andrew Mundwiller said.
>Mundwiller, who is suing MoDOT on behalf of Anderson’s family, says the claim is MoDOT’s way of evading accountability.
>“First of all, it’s illogical. How would somebody who hasn’t even been born yet work for you?” he said. “But if they were to get someone to buy that, then that means your case is dismissed out of St. Louis County, go to the comp system, where they’re going to take a different position, just like they did initially.”
>Workers’ comp already denied Anderson’s family claim because Kaitlyn was not married and had no dependents. Mundwiller says workers’ comp will certainly deny an unborn baby.
>“What they’re hoping is they don’t pay anything,” he said.
>MoDOT did not have a protective truck in place that day, even though it’s a department policy. That’s the focus of a lawsuit that, Kaitlyn’s mom says, MoDOT keeps avoiding.
What an awful way to evade accountability. I feel horrible for the families.
Some absurd questions for an absurd problem: If the 6mo fetus counts as a state worker, should it not receive compensation — and could MoDOT be held responsible for withholding wages? And if that fetus is considered a state worker, is MoDOT culpable for child labor?
Meanwhile, in Hell:
“Shit, I don’t even think I have a form for this. God I hate the 2020s. My job hasn’t been this much of a pain in my ass since the 1940s! Somebody go down the 8th Circle and pick me up a couple of lawyers. I need someone who speaks this dickhead’s language to create a completely new misery management plan for them.”
Hey, Missouri? If you got a problem with this, vote for people who will change it.
So if this unborn child was an employee of the state, they owe the family back wages and they should be prosecuted for human trafficking because the baby never consented to work for the state.
Ah yes, the dystopian approach.
Admitting to use child labour?
Nepotism is wrong. M’OK?
Looks like they forced labor from an unpaid child? In addition to all the fines and penalties, they also owe back pay and overtime
Imagine being a state attorney and being asked to go before a judge and argue this stance? I’d like to see the judge’s face when court is started and he/she fully grasps what the state is trying to argue.
Welp, that’s enough ~~USA~~ Reddit for today
The 21st Century in the USA seems like the Century of Unaccountability.
The fetus didn’t have a social security number, so this is unpaid child slave labor of an undocumented worker.
Even by the insane standards of the pro-life movement this is ridiculous
