You Won’t Believe Why The NYC Gov’t Fired A City Employee After 18 Months Of Missed Work

gfrtlvrJust when you thought government couldn’t get any more incompetent. Medicaid-eligibility specialist Geoffrey Toliver, 65, passed away from cancer in December last year. Long after he died, New York City officials filed to terminate his employment for missing 18 months of work. 

The Daily Mail reports,

The Human Resources Administration claimed it had tried to reach Toliver, who was born in Harlem and schooled in Queens, for more than a year before moving to fire him, the New York Post reported.

The father-of-three was making $38,000 per year.

Family friend Ted Willbright, who supported Toliver while he was dealing with his illness, said: ‘How do you fire a man who is already dead?

‘He deserves better. The agency itself should have known.

‘Some people he worked with were very supportive, so how did HRA the organization not know?

‘He didn’t abandon his job, his job abandoned him. He was a good man. Truly, truly a good man.’

What a horrible thing to rub into his family and friends after he died. Let’s hope the incompetent bureaucrats responsible for this embarrassing event are fired. His family deserves better.
