5.0 out of 5 stars Injustice prevails, May 3, 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: A Civil Action (Paperback)
I know a person who worked for Grace Corp.,one of its defense subsidiaries in Woburn, who was told they had been extensively investigated by the Justice Dept and FBI to work there.When this person requested their record with these agencies, both branches refused to provide copies or access to it.
This person was forced to sign an agreement with the U.S. government not to file bankruptcy in the future or lose the job and all benefits.
In 1995 when this book came out the person's medical records disappeared and the person became a victim of financial and character assassination, as if forcing the individual to violate this agreement and file bankruptcy anyway because they had no choice. Later, individuals alleging business linkage to this Grace subsidiary in Woburn and family or friendship ties to the FBI branches in Boston and surrounding areas began an intimidation campaign against this person.
This person had worked as a safety and/or environmental person with Grace corp, and been ousted under hostile and questionable circumstances and later blackballed in work references.Today the person is homeless and joblessand has been ruined in almost every way imaginable.Jan Schlictmann paid a price but this individual paid a higher one.

It would be more convincing if you could name some names. I know from experience that when a govt agency does a background investigation of you, they do it with your cooperation, requiring you to fill out an extensive questionnaire, so they can interview your friends, family, neighbors, employers, visit previous addresses, to find out if you are who and have been doing what you say, or are hiding something. It would be pointless to attempt a "secret investigation," which would take much longer, and doubly pointless to then tell the subject the investigation occurred. I have no doubt that W. R. Grace co. has low or absent moral standards, don't get me wrong.
