\J I am writing in response to your decision of March 30
regarding the person Linda J. Tappan.
Last June, Linda Tappan was employed by her ex-husband who
was then a consultant under contract to but not employed by Vicarm.
Her husband employed her to "assist" him in his work for Vicarm.
Under most circumstances this would not have been an acceptable
situation for Vicarm, but Mike Tappan insisted that he had good
personal reasons for employing her. Linda Tappan was on the Vicarm
payroll for a total of 5 weeks. During this time she worked entirely
with her ex-husband. A record of her hours shows she never worked
more than 39 hours in any one week. On July 26 Linda Tappan was
involved in an automobile accident (not connected with work). She
reported that her doctor advised her not to work for a while. Since
that date (on Nov. 1), Mr. Mike Tappan's contractwas terminated
because of irregular activities and unfullfilled commitments to
Vicarm. Two of the reasons being that he employed his ex-wife Linda
Tappan, and at a later date his brother Kelly Tappan as part of a
personal arrangement. In the case of Linda Tappan, it apparantly was
an agreement to keep her at Vicarm for a period sufficient to entitle
her to unemploment benefits and then lay her off. This arrangement
was necessary because Linda Tappan had either exhausted her benefits,
or was not eligible for them at the time.
Furthurmore, Linda Tappan voluntarilly quit her position at
Vicarm. She has NEVER since asked to return to work. But she has
done the following. She stated to friends last November that she was
planning to come to Vicarm and ask to return to work with the
expectation that she would be laid off. This she never did. In
January she came to Vicarm with her present husband and forcibly
removed documents, materials and property belonging to Vicarm. To
prevent her and her current husband from removing furthur quantities
of Vicarm property, the Mountain View police department was called.
The police removed her from the premises and informed her that she
would be arrested should she ever enter the premises of Vicarm again.
Linda Tappan has made no contacts with Vicarm since that
time, nor do we expect any. Linda Tappan was NOT laid off from
Vicarm. Linda Tappan left Vicarm on "Doctors Orders". Linda Tappan
has NEVER asked to return to work at Vicarm. I also understand that
Linda Tappan has claimed that last November her ex-husband Mike
Tappan told her that she had been laid off from Vicarm. Impossible,
because Mike Tappan was not connected in any way with Vicarm last
November, and thus was not in a position to make that statement.
Linda Tappan apparantly has a long history of claims against
just about everyone- a check of her other recent employers, and even
the insurance firm handling her auto accident injury claims will
reveal the difficulties involved in dealing with this person. Vicarm
was fooled by her and her ex-husband... and we at Vicarm feel that
she is attempting another one of her "rip-offs" with this claim for
unemployment insurance. Please check into this case more thoroughly
before you act.
