Complaints are being filed against Verizon, MetLife, and one of the doctors MetLife uses to "get the workers back to work at any cost" (direct quote) with government agencies. Petitions are also being signed to follow, to let the powers that be know lots of folks (voters also) are watching to help make sure justice is done, and that these things are not swept under the rug. Please sign the petitions as they come around. Petitions work, if used properly, and I set up a special [Petitions] button explaining how to use them effectively. I will also include links to the Petitions. Below I've pasted a list of some of the government agencies and powers that be you can directly file complaints with, this one for MetLife and one of the "independent" medical doctors it uses in New York. More shall be forthcoming but regardless, this list should serve as a guide.

Speaking of which, please let your representatives know about your support for the Consolidated Animal Crimes Bill, (A.775a/S.1776)New York’s animal cruelty laws have been hidden away within the state’s Agriculture and Markets statutes for decades, confusing police, prosecutors and judges, and are mostly bark with little if any bite. The Consolidated Animal Crimes Bill (A.775a/S.1776) improves enforcement by placing animal crimes under the penal code (criminal law), which is familiar, accessible, and taught to law enforcement personnel. A.775a/S.1776 redrafts anti-cruelty laws that have gone without substantial revisions since the mid-19th century!
After making your phone call (please do not skip that crucial step!), fill in and submit the form (link below) to automatically send a follow-up message to your state representative. Legislators receive a lot of email, so be sure to edit your message so it stands out. And remember-it is election season, time to get on all your lawmakers' tails, especially if he/she is running for election or re-election; regardless, lawmakers are working on getting/keeping others in their party, and smart lawmakers keep things voters/consituents say in their minds. https://secure.humanesociety.org/site/Advocacy?cmd=display&page=UserAction&id=5885
