A woman who works at a local firehouse says she’s been told she’s the victim of a malicious homekeeper who has been stealing the company’s supplies.
The woman, who asked that her name not be used, says she is an employee at the local fire department and has worked there for nearly two years.
The housekeeping staffing company she works for has been hiring illegal housekeepers for more than a year, she says.
But in the last year, it’s gotten increasingly bad.
She says she has seen the workers leave with what she believes to be cash, but no credit cards.
The workers have been stealing everything from the company refrigerator to its cookware, which she says has been left untouched for months, according to the woman, whose name is withheld for fear of reprisal.
The homekeeping staffing group, which has been on the payroll for less than a month, says it was notified of the problem last month by a union member, who said it was investigating the issue.
“I can tell you that when we went in, we were very concerned,” the woman says.
“We talked to the employee, who told us that this was an ongoing problem.”
The homekeeper’s complaints were picked up by an internal HR team that investigated, and the fire department has since been told to investigate the incident.
The fire department told the woman that the company had been contacted by an outside agency and the investigation is ongoing.
“They are looking into it,” the employee says.
The employee says that she and other employees have been working in a home that is at the very end of the building, and that the workers have no access to their own property.
“The whole house is at risk,” she says, adding that she’s had a lot of questions about what to do if someone breaks in and steals your things.
She also said that her own home is at an alarming risk of being damaged by the theft.
In an email to The Washington Free Beacon, a representative for the company said that they have since removed the unauthorized housekeepers from their payroll and have contacted the union to make them aware of their rights.
“Sincerely, We are committed to providing safe and safe working conditions to our employees,” the company spokesperson wrote.
The representative also pointed out that the employees had not been fired, but instead been asked to sign a confidentiality agreement, which requires them to not disclose any personal information about their employer.
The company spokesperson also told the Free Beacon that the homekeeping company has no records of any criminal activity.
The spokesperson added that the employee has not been notified that she has violated any workplace laws.
The Home Improvement Association, which represents the workers, sent a letter to The Free Beacon saying that they “are deeply concerned that the individuals who have been reported are unaware of their employment with the homekeepers,” and that they are now working with the company to understand their rights and concerns.
The letter states that the union was not notified of any misconduct in connection with the incident until the fire and health department contacted them, and they were informed that the worker had been terminated and that she is now on administrative leave.
The union has been in contact with the Fire and Health Department and the Fire Chief to ensure that the information received is accurate, and to ensure a thorough investigation of the matter.
