Report unethical behavior of FB employee

Amazon kYfJ50
Dec 20, 2018

I shared an apartment with a guy who works in FB. He stopped paying rent for two months because of some argument between us, and eventually moved out without letting me know. I sued him in court to get back the two months rent and lease termination fee, but the case was rejected by court, without any reason specified.

What else can I do to get my money back? How can I report his unethical behavior to FB? Any advice is appreciated!

    First of all, a court doesn't throw a case out without reason. So go ahead and tell the truth. Second, if you don't have some kind of written contact, lease,,sublet agreement made between the two of you and preferably witnessed and on writing, it's all hearsay and you don't really have a leg to stand on. I have a feeling that you don't have anything in writing, but don't want to fess up to making this mistake.

    Without that, there is nothing you can do, legally. You have no proof and no one will believe you since they don't know you. Take this as a lesson and walk away.

      I shut off electricity in his room for a few days after he shut off my internet access. But my lawyer told me it was not an excuse not to pay rent, since I’m not the landlord. And also, court did not tell me what was reason my case was rejected.

      You have a lawyer - what does he/she say about why the court threw your case out?

      My lawyer didn’t know either. It was small claim so lawyer was not present during trial.

      You didn't even address the statement about the lease, or lack thereof.

      There is always a reason. It's in the response of the court. Period.

      Also, you had no right to cut off his electricity.

      He cut off my internet for months first. I was not perfect but I had very little thing to do, and thought it was not the excuse to not to pay rent.

      You still haven’t answered the question whether there was a written lease or not.

      There was a written lease between we two and landlord.

      Then that means the landlord would have to bring him to court. And he has no reason to do that since you covered for the roommate.

      You have no case, period. Move on with your life.

      This is why so many people hate having roommates.

    Why the fuck do you think Facebook will care about what he did to you? You need to get a legal stand against him first. Go through the law. Get a lawyer. File a case. Only then will he be affected in terms of his employment.

      My case was rejected by court and I really don’t understand. I only received a mail saying the defendant does not owe money to plaintiff.

    Why does he owe you money? He owes the landlord money. Did you pay his rent? lol. Why not just pay your half and let the landlord collect.

      I paid his rent, because I didn’t want my credit history affected.

    Sorry to hear that - I hate such people who don’t care about others. Can’t you file a police case against him after warning him of the same if he does not offer to settle his dues to you? It will impact his background check plus you can use the report to notify FB HR maybe or threaten him of reporting the police report to FB HR if he does not straighten up. If he is on H1 here this will impact his renewal/transfer and GC process as well. Let him know clearly what options you are considering and it’s consequences on him if he does not pay up whatever he owes you. Be careful he may also take pre-emptive action against you (file a false police complaint against you for example) if you tell him your plan of action so you need to guard against that.

      Also make sure all communication henceforth with him is written (via email) so you have ample proof of giving him sufficient chances/warning to pay his dues before you initiate police action. This way you avoid any ambiguity if it comes to proving your case and giving him fair chance/warning.

    Instead of FB in your title there might be any other company. Assholes are everywhere. It looks like shitting FB is a new trend :)

    Doesn't add up, an employer won't care that you made a mistake. Courts don't just throw out cases. What's his side of the story. Also if you were in a situation in which someone paid you rent that's your responsibility...

    Don’t be the person who tattles to someone’s employer. I’m assuming the court rejected it cause you didn’t an enforcible leasing contract. Make sure you have that in place for your next roommate.

    You don’t bring a personal beef into someone’s workplace unless you are a vindictive scumbag. You lost in court so let it go even if it’s Just for your peace of mind.

    With your lease, both you and the roommate were on the hook for the full rent to the landlord. If one doesn't pay, the other must pay the full amount. This is why it was thrown out. You would only have a case if you were the landlord.
