Port Watchman Surrenders License with Prejudice Following Charge of Misappropriation of Money from Maher Terminals
October 3, 2017
Today, the Commission accepted the request of Lawrence Giordano to surrender his license as a port watchman (security officer) with prejudice. He had faced charges at an administrative hearing that he had violated the Waterfront Commission Act.
Giordano was a port watchman in New Jersey at Maher Terminals, LLC, in Elizabeth; Cape Liberty Cruise Port for Terminal Security Solutions in Bayonne; and BMW of North America, LLC, for Allied Universal Security Services in Jersey City. A Notice of Hearing alleged that Giordano had misappropriated or willfully attempted to misappropriate money from Maher Terminals by creating or reinforcing a false impression that a co-worker, Dominick Ricigliano, had worked during a period of time when he was, in fact, not working. In addition, the Notice of Hearing alleged that Giordano lacked good character and integrity.
Today, the Commission barred Giordano from the waterfront by accepting his request for the surrender of his license as a port watchman with prejudice.
