PGS ASA mailed by post [DHL] firm copies of forged, inaccurate, and unsigned firm documents of what they claim to be my personal data. This delivery of fake data in response to a legal request constitutes to my understanding US Federal law mail fraud violation(s).
I am a USA citizen who was sponsored on a work visa (Tier 2) by PGS ASA UK affiliate, PGS Exploration (UK) Limited, 4 The Heights, Brooklands, Weybridge, England, KT13 0NY [PGSUK}. My employment was terminated through a settlement contract agreement signed 5 December 2013 which was governed by the laws of England.
In October 2014, I submitted a subject access request (SAR) citing the UK Data Protection Act 1998 (DPA) and received by postal mail personal data that PGS ASA was processing in my name. Most notably, I received the firm copies of documents being processed within my PGSUK professional personnel file.
I immediately became aware of a significant problem. PGS ASA was processing defamatory forged documents as my personal data. The dates on the documents indicated that this data was present in my personnel file when the terms and conditions of the settlement contract for my termination from employment was negotiated. None of the documents bore the signature of the data subject (SDK) and all contained inaccurate and unsubstantiated defamatory content. I complained to the data controller, PGSUK, and the UK Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) who oversee DPA compliance. To my alarm, no action was taken against data controller. Since 2013, PGSUK has knowingly processed fake data to harm a data subject (SDK)!
Subsequent clarification e-mail communications between the data subject (SDK) and data controller, PGS ASA / PGSUK, from October 2014 through December 2014 I believe constitute intentional violations in US Federal law wire fraud and obstruction of justice.
PGS ASA / PGSUK provided responses with several knowing misrepresentations to the data subject from October 2014 – December 2014 regarding the integrity of the data which they sent to SDK by post mail [DHL] and e-mail. The PGS ASA / PGSUK SDK personnel file data containing unsigned and unverified documents that was delivered to the data subject, SDK, by PGS ASA / PGSUK contradicts e-mail records that were provided by PGS ASA / PGSUK with the SAR, as well as e-mail records that are processed personally by the data subject, SDK. SDK has concluded that PGS ASA / PGSUK knowingly provided misrepresentations of material facts when queried about the integrity of SDKs personal data. SDK has since deduced that he was the target of a confidence fraud involving his hired solicitor firm, Landau, Zeffertt and Weir Solicitors (Philip Landau / Holly Rushton).
The unverified and inaccurate SDK personal data being processed by PGS ASA / PGSUK does not correspond to data provided to Philip Landau / Holly Rushton through verifiable e-mail communications. PGS ASA / PGSUK contracted the UK affiliate of global law firm, Watson Farley and Williams (WFW) to form the final terms and conditions of the termination settlement contract. E-mail communications from WFW solicitor, Rhodri Thomas, to Philip Landau that were shared with SDK seem to correspond with the false narrative contained within the forged documents delivered to SDK in response to his SAR as SDK personal data. SDK requested from LZW and PGS ASA / PGSUK several times from 14 October 2013 – 5 December 2013 that personal data being processed by PGS ASA / PGSUK be provided to the data subject, SDK, during the termination settlement contract negotiations. This material data was intentionally withheld from the data subject SDK when the termination settlement contract was negotiated and formed. SDK was unaware at the time that his legal counsel was a double-agent and co-conspirator assisting in the confidence fraud with co-conspirators PGS ASA / PGSUK and WFW to harm a foreign worker.
Following the signing of the 5 December 2013 termination settlement agreement by SDK, SDK returned to the country of his citizenship, USA. In fact, the terms and conditions of the 5 December 2013 termination settlement agreement included provisions for the reimbursement of household moving costs from Weybridge, England to Houston, Texas, USA. The reimbursements related to the 5 December 2013 termination settlement contract terms and conditions were not paid until May – June 2014. Thus, the 5 December 2013 termination settlement agreement terms and conditions were not fulfilled until the reimbursement payments were made to SDK. (SDK never liked these terms and conditions including payments made after the signing of the 5 December 2013 termination agreement, but accepted them on advice and recommendation of his counsel, Philip Landau / Holly Rushton.) The SDK personal data processed to support the termination settlement contract had never been truthfully related by LZW to client, SDK. Most every contract provision requested by SDK to his solicitor, Philip Landau / Holly Rushton, was not accepted into the final termination settlement agreement.
PGS ASA / PGSUK Bribed WFW and LZW to Cooperate in a Confidence Fraud and to Utter Forged Documents used to Illegally Terminate and Professionally Blacklist (defame) a Foreign Worker Whistleblower
PGS ASA / PGSUK, WFW, and LZW cooperated in the conspiracy, gas-lighting (misrepresentation/fraud) and withholding of information from SDK until he agreed, under duress, to terms and conditions that by in large benefited PGS ASA / PGSUK who had been accused through a workplace greivance submitted 20 September 2013 of workplace mobbing, harassment, discrimination, breaching the terms and conditions of the original employment contract and UK employment laws. PGS ASA / PGSUK obstructed my legal rights, under contract governed by the laws of England to submit a grievance. However, I insisted. The grievance which SDK delivered to PGS ASA / PGSUK 20 September 2013 met the standard of protected public disclosure (whistleblowing) described within the UK Public Interest Disclosure Act 1998 (PIDA).
PGS ASA / PGSUK illegally retaliated against my whistleblowing through denying SDK his legal right to proceed through the grievance process described within the PGS UK Personnel Handbook. PGS ASA / PGSUK, WFW, and LZW cooperated in denying SDK his legal right under contract governed by the laws of England. PGS ASA / PGSUK, WFW, and LZW also did not process a report submitted by an occupational health nurse who diagnosed stressed health conditions and recommended follow-up check-up. The OHN report (by Maggie Bream) also contradicts the documented narrative being uttered by forged documents within SDKs PGS ASA / PGSUK professional personnel file. PGS ASA / PGSUK, WFW, and LZW processed defamatory forged documents and withheld a medical report recommending medical care to support an illegal termination settlement contract used to illegally terminate a foreign worker whistleblower. Throughout this conspiracy to defraud and defame (professionally blacklist) the target of health-harming workplace abuse, PGS ASA / PGSUK, WFW, and LZW also violated foreign worker employment reporting provisions (Tier 2 visa sponsorship of worker and dependent family members) and withheld or fabricated material immigrant worker data from UK Government Border Agency. Concurrent to all this, PGS (Petroleum Geo-Services) ASA Board of Directors were pursuing membership status into the UN Global Compact making commitments to work against the many human rights and employment law violations that PGS ASA Board of Directors had just perpetrated against a foreign worker whistleblower.Disgusting!
PGS ASA / PGSUK, WFW, and LZW not only defrauded and defamed a foreign worker whistleblower, but also actively sought to deceive UK, Norway, and USA government agencies, as well as PGS ASA investors and stakeholders. PGS ASA, WFW, and LZW have never attempted to counter these allegations even though SDK is bound by contractual non-disparagement clauses governed by the laws of England.
