Hey thanks for this. It may be old but I can see Alpha has breached this code of ethics as well as Human Rights legislation for disability access.

Having dealt with a member of this association, in connection with work trial I found the relationship with my case manager to be somewhat cosy to say the least and not at all in keeping with the


part of this code of ethics.

I guess we now have another organisation to write to in regards of their members practises to keep them honest in their dealings with us claimants.

was intolerant of claimants who had sat on ACC all those years doing nothing but always blamed ACC for not having rehabbed them, that claimants should get out and fund the rehab themselves and that she was tired of long-term claimants who were negative. She said ACC does not owe claimants’ rehab, that it was the claimant’s responsibility to get on with it, and not up to ACC to rehab them

You are all correct. Because the claimant was upset by the lack of mobility access to Alpha CON-in-sult-ants, Irene Taylor became verbally abusive towards the claimant and launched into a tirade of inappropriate comments.

Leanne Mac Donnell & she were good friends and so she admonished the claimant to "shut your mouth!" and to stop the "attitude" and to just "put the PTSD, rapes and pain aside" and to "stop being negative" and "listen!".

The claimant admits she got off on the wrong foot with Taylor, over the mobility access but tells me she would not have been upset in the first place, had Alpha been mobility accessible. This is discrimination.

ACC should not be referring disabled claimants to CON-in-Sult-ants with inaccessible - therefore discriminatory - premises.

If ACC insist of banishing you to this Hitler woman who has NO mobility access, I suggest all Auckland ACC claimants take a witness (preferably a lawyer) because Taylor cannot be trusted.
