TORONTO (CORPORATE HEADQUARTERS), Nov. 11, 2013 /CNW/ - Ms. Silva's allegations are without merit, and we consider this to be a frivolous claim brought by an opportunistic Plaintiff. Ms. Silva did indeed work with us for 90 days +1, after being placed via co-defendant The Career Foundation (www.careerfoundation.com), and then let us know that she could not continue, due to discomfort in her wrist, the day after her probationary period was complete.
Our head of HR at the time and her manager did arrange to have her evaluated given the timing of her injury and an independent insurance auditor failed to find her credible and as such refused her claim. Further, two separate and independent Canadian medical professionals met with and diagnosed Ms. Silva with a strain and prescribed nothing more than rest for her injury - which Ashley Madison offered to accommodate. Not until Ms. Silva travelled back to Brazil, did her medical diagnosis change.
Several good faith attempts to accommodate Ms. Silva's alleged restrictions were rejected by her; Avid was then sued by Ms. Silva, with her extortionary demands escalating over time from $120,000 (USD) to $20 million (USD). Rather than seeking compensation in line with her salary, she chose to sue the company for profits that have little to no connection to her work for Avid Life Media; threatening all along that if her demands were not met she would speak to the press about her lawsuit.
Throughout this lawsuit, Ms. Silva appears to have continued to lead an active life and has shown no side effects from her so called injury, as evidenced by her photo postings, depicting multiple vacations around the world, on social media sites. In fact, in several postings Ms. Silva can be seen clearly enjoying herself on a jet ski - an unlikely activity for someone who has allegedly suffered serious injury
Avid Life Media will not, ever, give in to extortion. Our service is 100% authentic, as described in our terms and conditions, and we resent any implication otherwise and are certain we will be both vindicated and victorious in court.
