    Diskeeper Class Action Lawsuit

    [FONT="Courier New"]Here is a fun letter about the huge Diskeeper ass-raping that is in progress.

    If you don't already know, Diskeeper, as well as other WISE organizations, force new hires to do a year or more of unpaid Scientology training under the guise that it has been "secularized". You still have to do all of the TRs, including staring at your desk for two hours without moving, staring at another person for another 2 hours, and so on and so forth.

    Upon accepting your employment, you are then told you will be taking an hourly paycut (this covers your "overtime") because un-trained you are not worth as much to them. BTW they tell you this AFTER you are given the position, and you come in and sign your contract with some funny business about this pay cut. They make it seem as it will last only a month or so.... truth is, I was there for almost 2 years, and my training was still not done. That is 2 years of stay after work 2 extra hours, and not getting paid. This is just the beginning of the horror.[/FONT]

    Yes, they will definitely see my shining face in court. Too bad I can't find that non-disclosure agreement they were trying to shove down my throat. It basically said I couldn't ever sue them in the future, even if I found they owed me more money, and I also wouldn't be entitled to that money either.

    I also found out they were actively trying to convert me, and was told I would not be able to advance in the company much further if I wasn't indoctrinated. They basically got a hold of me out of the blue saying they "owed me money", ten sent me a hand-written check with no tax info, no hour break-down... nothing.

    Good thing I took some law classes and didn't sign the damn NDA, what do I look like?

    Thanks for this, hadn't caught up with the details. Go hard and good luck in court.

    Also, it just gives me the shits that with increasing unemployment these days this sort of behaviour by employers is easier to get away with. JOIN A UNION!!

    Re: Diskeeper Class Action Lawsuit

    They are fairly anti-union haha. And yes, no NDA for me, I read EVERYTHING before I gave them my answer. I told them straight up "Ummm I think what you are trying to have me sign is completely inappropriate, I will go to a lawyer now and weigh my opions".

    Considering I am on their "naughty list" I am surprised they were allowed to call me even for that. Guess good 'ol state and federal law are more powerful that their "disconnects".

    I'll keep you guys posted on how it goes. I know they already paid out the previous plaintiffs from the discrimination case over 150K plus any potential bonuses they may have received.

    Kinda scary knowing if you have Windows, you have a Scientologist company's handi-work (AKA your regular defragmenter). :mad:

    I understand that L. Ron Hubbard is also the founder of Scientology® religion which is an
    applied religious philosophy. I understand that Mr. Hubbard's Management Technology
    as applied at Diskeeper Corporation is separate and distinct from the religious aspects of

    Which is quite ridiculous, how can a new employee who knows nothing (yet) about Diskeeper's form of management, or Scientology inners, can tell whether there is no Scientology taught at Diskeeper?

    This is an easy case, Diskeeper *does* teach Scientology doctrines to its employees. It's such an easy case, and Diskeeper knows it, that it will eventually settle, which is its least worst option.

    Re: Diskeeper Class Action Lawsuit

    Bizarre!! Nowhere in the Constitution does it mention religion, except in exclusionary terms. The words "Jesus Christ, Christianity, Bible, and God" are never mentioned - not once. Same with Xenu.

    Go back, before the Constitution to the Declaration of Independence and you will see a radical departure from the idea of divine authority. Power, Jefferson said, does not come down from God but up from the citizens. This meme is echoed throughout the Constitution.

    Even the Bible itself supports the idea of government. There's the "render unto Caesar" maxim, not mention Romans 13.1: "Let every person be subject to the governing authorities; for there is no authority except from God, and those authorities that exist have been instituted by God. Therefore whoever resist authority resists what God has appointed, and those who resist will incur judgment."

    If an appeal to the First Amendment is all they got, they're fucked.

    Re: Diskeeper Class Action Lawsuit

    That Diskeeper employment agreement is not the one I signed. I was told at hire that I would be doing some secularized training pertinent to my position in the company. This, however, was not the case. I compared my training to what the regular Scientology Bridge was, and I was on the same track.

    Not only did I have to memorize all their lingo, but I also had to know all about the religion itself and studied LRH quotes and lessons which had nothing to do with work at all.

    Also, we had Sea Org people in and out of Diskeeper constantly. One time I stole a flier which stated something along the lines of "We you aware of the intergalactic war?". They would come by and put that sort of stuff in only the Scientologists' mail cubbies, but then extras were left in the break room.

    In addition to training 2 hours a day, each sector of the company (HR, Marketing, Sales, etc) had a Director that was soley in charge of monitoring our Scio training, and with whom I would have to meet with for an additional hour a day--talk about cutting in to production time. We would also be called down constantly for auditing and clearing with multiple people to make sure we were understanding all of our training. I would say that maybe 30% of the employees had positions that no other "regular" enterprise company would have, as their positions were based only on that they were high-level Scios and their positions only had to do with Scientology-related actions (i.e. Word-clearer, who all she did all day was call people to her office and see if they knew Scio lingo).

    Also, if you ever got sick and needed to call in (even allergies)... you had to have an SP counsueling session in which you had to go back and talk about the first time you ever had this allergy/sickness, who was in your life at the time, and the you had to "clear" them. I was also encouraged to cut ties with whatever particular person I happened to "blame" just to get out of the stupid cycle and go back to work.

    I remember sending multiple e-mails "handling" the situation with my parents because, honestly, who else are you constantly around when you are 3? When the flu went around, we would get mass e-mails about how to not get sick by simply "not wanting to get sick", and if you did, you were forced to take an additional Scio course about Suppressive People.

    I could go on and on, I swear I got PTSD from working there. The turn-over rate for employment was so high there, they let go a few people every week almost.

    Another day I will tell you how I almost got fired because I had some shitty roommates, and I was given an ultimatum to kick them out of my house, or get fired. Um, tell me what other non-Scio company would fire me over Suppressive People? Also, they had a fun internal court-type system, where if you got a Knowledge Report, a mass e-mail got sent out about your crimes, and people had to vote whether you kept your job or not.

    Re: Diskeeper Class Action Lawsuit

    And the thing is, it is even worse than it seems.

    I was in the "CEO's Circle" with Craig Jensen who owns Diskeeper (then "Executive Software"). The CEO's Circle is/was the highest memebership level in WISE.

    I can remember being in CEO's Circle meetings with Craig where we discussed our companies (I ran RealWorld Corporation at the time) and how we would use them to help spread scientology.

    Craig chaired the meetings and asked every single rep from different companies there run by scientologists what they were going to do to spread scientology through the use of their companies.

    Craig said that he owned all of his company as he did not plan to sell it ever. Instead he planned to do the following because of his company:

    1) get scientologists in his company "up the bridge" by helping pay for their training and auditing;

    2) get non scientologists in his company to do Hubbard courses and get them to become scientologoists thus sending people and money "up the lines" to the top of organized scienology;

    3) use the example and influence of Diskeeper to push other scientologists in business to also use their businesses to make more scientologists and get money into organized scientology; and

    4) use the influence of Diskeeper to get "wog companies" involved in scientology.

    Craig made it clear to me personally that the one and only real purpose of Diskeeper/Executive Software was to get people and money into organized scientology thus helping to "clear the planet".

    On top of this I was earlier at the top of organized scientology in the Watchdog Committee and as well was on the first legal mission for WISE. I had and saw many orders directly from Hubbard on this matter. Using WISE and thus the scientologists in business under WISE to force others to become scientologists and to funnel money up into organized scientology was a major purpose of WISE (in addition to using WISE to control the scientologists in business though "ethics" in order to make them compliant to the demands of the management of organized scientology).

    It really is even worse, way worse, than it appears. If the attorneys for the plaintiffs really get all this information they will have a field day with it as they are actually right in their legal claims.

    IMHO not only should Craig Jenson personally and Diskeeper corporately be legally liable here but so should organized scientology itself who controls Jensen.

    And of course, he would get a handsome cut from the collective spending of all the people he helped recruit. Not that he does it for the money, it's "just to help people," of course [sarcasm].

    Re: Diskeeper Class Action Lawsuit

    Well Diskeeper is a Fortune 500 company, and a Microsoft Gold partner... they had more then enough money going around. What is kinda funny though, is from what I remember, a lot of the Executive drove POS cars (I am imagining because all their money went to other endeavors)... but yes, that is scary that Craigs created this company with this sole purpose.

    Yes, your Windows defragmenter is an older version of Diskeeper. basically, a few versions behind. Basically we were our own competition, and had about 90% market share. Fucked up huh?

    LarryBren, do you have any official transcripts of those meetings? It might be good fodder for the legal case.

    You know if you said all that stuff you just said in court then the plaintiff's would probably be super happy and Scientology and Diskeeper would probably be super unhappy. Why not contact the lawyers behind this lolsuit and tell them what you know?

    Re: Diskeeper Class Action Lawsuit

    As part of the class action lawsuit, I am glad and happy you have spoken with Barry. He really went out of his way to let me know what I was entitled to (without even requiring any compensation). I am glad I am getting some sort of retribution for everything I struggled through at that job.

    I am glad someone finally stood up, because I was too chicken shit to do anything, mainly because I was worried about being public about my experiences there.

    Bump! With Jensen's name showing up in the front rows of whales at the Super Power opening, I got to wondering how the last couple of Diskeeper lawsuits filed by wrongfully terminated employees who didn't like the coerced Scientology aspect of the job played out. (This one, and another from 2007)

    This case, MARAL HINTIRYAN VS DISKEEPER CORPORATION (BC424359 in LA Superior Court) ended in January 2013 with a request for dismissal by diskeeper.

    The docket for this case looks like it was ugly - lots of shit filed under seal, various motions to compel responses, arbitration, depositions, discovery. Some bawling for sanctions, a partial dismissal for one party (Tom Carrigan) that then led to another related case, plus other assorted clusterfuckery.

    The last ruling on this case was August 23, 2013. Afterward, diskeeper made motions to proclaim themselves the prevailing party in December, which the Plaintiff opposed, and then bam! Request for dismissal by diskeeper.

    For more details see the online court website here, and enter case number BC424359:

    The related case that spawned from this one, TOM CARRIGAN VS DISKEEPER CORPORATION (BC455379 also in LA Superior Court), was filed February 18, 2011. It was dismissed with binding arbitration on August 23, 2012.

    The previous case before this one, ALEXANDER J GODELMAN ET AL VS DISKEEPER CORPORATION ET AL (BC374449 likewise in LA Superior Court), was filed July 17, 2007 and was dismissed June 24, 2009. Prior to dismissal (that was requested by the Plaintiffs) Diskeeper was denied their motions for summary judgment. So I'm guessing this one ended in a settlement.

    Once all this lawfare passed, Diskeeper changed their name to Condusiv Technologies in 2012.

    I wonder if Condusiv is forcing Scientology on their employees, or did Jensen finally learn his lesson?

    I formed Executive Software in 1981 with a small computer and a box of files in my kitchen. After struggling somewhat for years, I decided to do the marketing myself, studying and applyingL. Ron Hubbard’s marketing technology.
    The resultant explosive growth put us on Inc. Magazine’s list of the 500 fastest-growing privately-held companies in America for four consecutive years — a rare feat. Today, because of Mr. Hubbard’s administrative technologies, our products are used on 3.5 million computers around the world.
