    J.P. MORGAN MANAGER FIRED FOR FALSE CLAIMS OVER EMPTY TONERS
    Empty Printer Cartridges Lead to Lawsuit
    ROCHESTER,
    N.Y. – A manager claims that J.P. Morgan Chase fired him after 24 years
    of service on false charges of selling used-up printer cartridges to a
    recycler for his own benefit.Dean Klein says Morgan Chase acted upon a
    false tip from another employee, who sought an advancement she could
    achieve only if he and his co-workers were fired.Klein says he never
    stole, smuggled or sold the empty cartridges for recycling, and “he
    asked other employees to stop such activity and did not approve or
    authorize any other individual to use his name for such activity.”

    Printer
    manufacturers have been repeatedly accused in class actions of milking
    money from their cartridges by making the warning lights flash long
    before the ink runs dry. But in his complaint in Monroe County Court,
    Klein says he and his co-workers were accused of selling the cartridges
    once they truly were empty to an outside recycler.Klein was a
    transportation coordinator. He says he was denied a hearing to defend
    himself, denied counsel, and “forced out of his job … without just
    cause.” He claims the reason he was fired was to deny him stock
    options, severance and retirement pay.He is represented by John
    Annechino of Penfield, N.Y.
