[Resolved] Napco Painting Contractors Inc. — Napco - Scott Bergevin - Discrimination - Threats & Drugs
Napco Painting Contractors Inc. located at 2310 Laurel St, in Napa California, is a local Painting and Finishing company. Several years ago I did a side job for an employee at Napco named Scott Bergevin, who was an out of work musician and took up painting to make a living. Scott told me if I ever needed a job I could always call Napco since they were always hiring and looking for professional painters. Scott said Napco was forced to hire unskilled Mexican day laborers because good journeymen were hard to find. He said the owners were getting complaints about the Mexican workers doing damage to homes and businesses and even stealing items from client homes, while painting. After a few years I reached our to Napco for a job but they refused to hire me. When I reached out to Scott for advice, he pretty much threatened me. He was worried that if we worked together, I may tell his employers about his drug use and dealings on the side. I told him I would not do that but he still made me look bad to the owners so they would not hire me. I complained to the owners Joe Winograde and Jon La Field but they refused to answer. I reached our to the California Labor Board, who agreed there was cause to investigate. I told Napco I was reporting them and they still ignored me. I found out from another former employee that Scott and the owner were old friends and played in a heavy metal band back in the 1980s and that Scott sold Marijuana to Napco's owner. Which explains why they did not want me working there, for fear of exposing this issue. While my family attorney was researching the background on Napco, we found many former employees who were treated bad, threatened, and later fired. Racial discrimination seemed to be the main issue. Since they hire illegals to paint for them, they treat them bad on the job, and if they complain, they are fired. Exactly what Scott Bergevin had bragged about to me several years before. Also, there were police reports of theft on client homes and businesses by Napco employees in the past. It is time to expose what is going on at this company. Drugs and racial discrimination, oh and what about hiring illegals under the table? Lets not forget that Scott Bergevin threatened my job and made physical threats as well against me if I ever reported this! Well, if that happens, I wanted everyone in the Napa area to know what they do and what they did to me. Please help me expose this corrupt business and get State officials to properly investigate these guys and question their licenses.
