Enterprise Rent A Car Does Not Help Long Time Employees Hurt On The Clock | Gripevine
My husband was the Service Supervisor for Enterprise Rent A Car for almost 30 years. He suffered heatstroke on the property on the clock in 2009 and was unconscious for an estimated 19 minutes. He was out of work for approximately three months. When he went back to work the residual effects of the heatstroke made it hard for him to do his job. He went to his superior and told him and he said he would hire someone to help him. My husband found out through an email that was not meant to be sent to him that he had actually been demoted. The next day he had a mental breakdown. He was the first employee they hired in 1981 when they opened service in Houston. He had worked there his entire adult life. This was devastating to him. So he was on short term disability again.
After it expired Enterprise fired him stating he was a liability. He was told to his face even if he recovered he was not wanted back. This started our long, long nightmare that has not yet ended. We in the past year have lost ALL of our savings, life insurance, medical insurance, dental insurance, and prescription insurance. We tried to sue Enterprise but were told by three attorneys that we didn't have a case because he didn't die. Thank God he didn't die. We also went to Enterprise but they refused to help us. They stated that if they helped us they would have to help everyone. Then they BLOCKED us from calling them, accessing their websites, or posting about them. I opened a Twitter account because they could not stop me from that but they have blocked me from accessing their Twitter account @entrprisecares. It's a shame that they treated their 30 year employee this way. We are going to lose everything including our house because of this. We can't always get our medication and we can't always afford to pay our bills now or buy food.
Enterprise Rent A Car doesn't care. We have not been able to get help from anyone or anywhere. Also, Enterprise Rent A Car has not been that for a few years now. They are EAN Holdings, LLC because they purchased Alamo Rental Car and Nation Rental Car and it seems that not many people know that. They are able to hide behind the loopholes in the LLC. Had it not been for the LLC we would have had benefits longer as Texas Law gives you six months longer than Missouri Law does and because of the LLC they do not have to follow the law of the state we live in and he worked in; which was also unfair. Large companies should have to follow the laws of the state the employee lives in and works in. And when you are hurt on the job and almost die on the clock that company should help you. He almost literally gave his life for that company and they threw him under the bus.
