Postal Worker Accused of Worker's Comp Fraud

A former Tallahassee mail carrier is accused of pocketing more than $10,000 dollars in bogus worker's comp claims.

Jacque Myers was arraigned in Federal Court Thursday. Court documents show Myers reported a work-related back injury in 2009.

Court documents say Myers received workers compensation payments of more than $11,000 over the next six months. Her attorney had no comment. Myer's next court date is April 12.

    Why don’t other postal crimes get reported to the media? Why wasn’t the public notified when over $80,000.00 went missing (overnight) from the Centerville Station Post Office? May be it was because the people who are responsible were the managers. When something goes wrong it is always the managers’ fault. It says that in the manager’s handbook. Oh but we really want to know about an injured employee don’t we. Sometimes we are all guilty of overlooking the obvious.

    Employees who suffer an on the job injury were humiliated and punished in ways that borderline on criminal by description. I have witnessed total seclusion from all other employees as well as from any daylight. In conjunction to the seclusion there are unbearably cold temperatures in the room where they were isolated. These same injured employees were not given any tasks to do and nothing to be productive. The only instructions or directives were obsolete safety manuals that they were to be reading at all times. For an entire day and each and every day to follow as it progressed into weeks and months this was their punishment. It was pure intimidation and harassment.

    This lady is more honest than those who accuse her and by a long shot. Tallahassee alone has paid big settlements to employees for errors committed by local managers. $11,000.00 is a made up figure. It is B.S. compared to what the USPS will have to pay her once this is settled. Back pay and discrimination will cost at least $200,000.00 at least. Jackie is a saint compared to these managers. Trust me. I know. I was paid $17,000.00 for nothing. Along with dozens of others hundreds of thousands of dollars were paid out because of one manager who screwed up. Did he get arrested? Hell no! Where is your justice? If you believe this woman is guilty you are as ignorant as the government thinks you are.

    To those of you who think that delivering mail is "easy" you have no clue!! We do a lot more than drive around all day doing "nothing"! We deal with mean nasty customers and most of the time with a smile and nothing but courtesy. We are micro managed to the point of insanity. When you get your mail with the wrong # but it still reaches you do you ever think to thank your postal employees "NO" you only remember that misdelivery from months or years ago. Time to show a bit of compassion for your fellow human we all have jobs to do and most of us like what we do or I am pretty sure we would not be dealing with such negativity. It is possible this woman was on the road to recovery and just not released by her healthcare provider, no true facts yet so don't be so quick to judge until you know the facts. Postal employees are the same as any other working class person in this country and deserve a little respect!!!!!

      Want to know why you're micromanaged? Because you let a union speak for you because you can't speak for yourself. They said "oh yeah, they can do this", well I held them to it.

    Didn't a Doctor have to fill out papers for her to actually be eligible for Worker's Comp? Why didn't "They" know it was "bogus" to start with? Sounds to me, somebody else should be investigated for fraud.

    Note the word accusedher....not found guilty. I happen to know that Ms Myers is a hard worker and we all know its possible to sustain a back injury easily. I know that there are way too many 'disability' claims being approved, but lets see how the courts look at this when examining the entire process.

    United States Postal Service. 3.3 billion in the red the last quarter. Hope and Change did not work for this agency. Thanks to China we still get our mail.

    This must be the "worker" I had who stole my freebies I sent off for. I contacted the companies and they assured me the items were sent. But I was quick to receive my weekly mail from the gecko. She said I was lying, but once I got hold of the Post Master, I get all my mail and haven't seen her around.

      I doubt it was Ms. Myers, she worked in the building not on a route.

      If all the people found out that you're so overpriced for what you do, you would be in trouble. Your job is easy and your pay is a scam to the people that hire you. Keep your comments in your "slave state"; Florida has the "right to work".
