Bullied at the work place

I worked for 20 years at the school. I was bullied and harassed and she was always Nick picking. I had to resign because I wasn’t taking it no more. I lost my early retirement because I was stressing out and started having panic attacks I told Human Resources but they didn’t care.She still works at the School.Karma will get her soon.God in control.

Of course Karma is a Monster but Never allow Anyone to still your Joy. To make it in this World you have to learn to bite back. Not physically but Spiritually

I feel your pain...bullying happens all the time in the work place. Always over looked because those who bully are the biggest a** kissers and the bosses love them so they feel they have the right to get away with everything. Your health, emotional health and mental health is compromised by these bullies. No amount of money is worth the torture that these people put you through. Normally it is brought on by jealousy, they feel threatened that you can do better than them and that doesn't set well with them...or mostly the have alot of mental problems themselves and bringing you down makes them feel better.

Google legal services in your area. City and state websites have listing of people you can talk to. In the meantime gather as much evidence you can to prove what you were experiencing.

Sexual harassment/wrongful discharge

I was working for this company but I was going through a temp service. They was talking about hiring me cause they liked my work. Well my supervisor ended up going on vacation for over a week and a half. During this time the line leader took over and decided that while the supervisor was gone he would try and touch me. He was told by myself not to grope on me. He didn't care so kept trying everyday while supervisor was gone. So when I turned him in He got to keep his job and I got let go. No investigation.

It sounds like you could sue them. Can you document what he did on what day? Word for word what you said to him? He should be fired.

If the person harassing you was painful and the company is covering it up. Then it’s time to publish the names of both and have them deal with the results of their actions. Why would someone protect their identity this is the question???

Then your time sheet should show that you are not late. Get a lawyer and sue her ass for harrassment and if possible discrimination.

Absolutely terrible ex manager (me)

They would decommission me all the time if someone signed up for a personal training package and then decided 4 months later they didn’t want to do it anymore and they would switch cards and every month they started taking 400-500 out of my paycheck. That’s not my fault my fault was to get people to sign up it was fair. They were stealing money from me. I also asked for insurance for months and the GM said he would take care of it. I landed in the hospital due to a rib injury that ended up costing $8,000 because “he dropped the ball and forgot about it.” In addition I’ve seen personal trainer choke a client and call them the N word as well as weed fall right out of their pocket and our GM Greg Custard just would say “don’t do it again.” Greg Custard and Jamie Lamb are people who will steal your money. The assistant fitness manager there right now is making $250 every two weeks. That’s 3 dollars an hour which is illegal. They are very corrupt and will hide things to the biggest extent. A lot of bullying and a lot of complaints. They do not treat their employees right at all. They don’t care about the people in the gym or who train they care about numbers and money. Jamie Lamb (the regional manger) has also said some sexual remarks to me about other girls. Very unprofessional. Don’t ever work there I finally left and quit. And of course they won’t let me step in the building even though I peacefully quit. The last person who tried to put their two week notice in they fired him in the spot so they wouldn’t have to pay him. Then threatened to take him to court if he tried to do the same.

Negative Employees

Remember negative employees push money out the door. These types of employees may try ruin other employees on the job. Some may have major psychological issues. Talk to a trusted person to debrief after a negative encounter. You may need to work with a professional to gain actual tools for on the job so that real bullying and sabotage do not bring you down to their level. No need to be intimidated. Practice firm boudaries with the negative people on the job as well in your personal lives.

Great advice, Jamie! Negative people are a part of everyday life, but if you ever encounter an abusive or bullying employee, it's important to seek out HR immediately. Your workplace should be for work - not for encountering these potentially illegal behaviors.

Your so right Jamie! It's so easy to fall in with these groups of people at work. There's no possibility for solutions with this negative attitude.

anybody have to sue their work

i was suggested to sue my work. im terrified. i just turned 20 and stayed out of the courts, but after harassment and having a cart pushed up against my back and told to kill myself by a coworker, i was advised to sue after losing my job bcs i argued too much. i had told the hr department that id lose my job soon bcs they found fault in everything. my shoes were old. i needed to stop talking to people. i came across annoying. i even think i was staged. so ill admit in my location and 11 years i lost 1 kid. the child had wondered into another class room while i led my toddlers into the hallway. i counted each one and touched their head and since there wasnt a safety net or a rope, i watched as each toddler went into their class. one baby had troubles walking and so i picked him up to bring him to class. as i was walking there were 2 teachers in the class room and one blocking the main building. i counted 5 babies in my room. my manager who was bullying me the most came in and gave me a schedule THAT DIDNT EVEN HAVE THE CORRECT SPELLING OR TITTLE on it. she left and i began to care for the babies. after a while i went to check to make sure i had filled the attendent sheet correctly. assuming the babies were either playing in the art easal or behind the rocking chair i didnt really notice a difference ,but it felt odd. so i began to search down my sheet when i called to a baby who was no longer there! i got my manager who had a sleek smile on her face as i told her and told her that a baby was missing. she asked if i was sure and i nodded. she laughed and said the baby was in the older kids class room. some how i magically missed this child going in. i race in and there was my 4 coworkers with a sleek smile telling me where she was. i was so ashamed. i told my manager that i had counted 5 going in and had my attendent sheet filled! so when could she had gone. i took it as my fault and told her i had to of miscounted with all that was running around. however ive never miscounted. im so upset and surprised by this. whats your thoughts?

The worst way to get fired

I was having a hard time where I was working. I thought I was doing good. All the days and weeks I was working. Till one day I found out that I was only working one day a week. I didn't understand. I asked my Manager and he told me that everyone's hours were being cut. The Ass. manager told me something completely different every day at work they told me to tap into my inner brother. I did not like the idea of them comparing me to my brother. I tried to live up to my brother, but every time I did that would say "YOUR BROTHER DID A BETTER JOB!" I was getting more upset by the min. I would bottle it up and hide in a shell. I would be very quiet. I called in one day and ask what day I was working. They told me I was one on the schedule. I asked to talk to my Ass. Manager. She texted me a few days later. I told her everything that was going on. She texted me "I'm letting you go" I was shocked. I could not shed a tear. My brother the one I was living in his shadow said that it was not professional for her to fire me over a text. I can not even step foot into my old job without my stomach turning. But I think I got fewer hours due to a girl that didn't like me. I was getting harassed sexually and another way.

Ms. Stephanie, as you stated: "The worst way to get fired" [IBYC]

Perhaps, you may not know this, however, success is actually standing at your door steps knocking and waiting to come in.

Selective people teach a practice what is called: The Conversion Table. Which illustrates "TURNING YOU BROKEN STONES, INTO YOUR STEPPING STONES" that why I know you can win!

Follow-me with 10 other people, and you can make "The worst way to get fired" become The Best way To Be Hired. (There's no doubt in my mind.) If you want to get hired contact me promptly within 72 hours because I'm preparing for a Mega Workshop in Atlanta, GA. I will have my associates assist you.

I Believe You Can...!

If I were you I would change Ass. Manager, to Asst. Manager. I think this is what you mean.

Feeling Worthless

Last week, I was body shamed by a male supervisor while another male supervisor stood in the same room and said nothing. Since day one I have been singled out and judged for the way I look. I cry every day, I have major anxiety just walking up to the building, and I don't even feel comfortable walking as far as the bathroom in fear of being once again humiliated for being proportionately different from what mainstream society may deem as normal for a skinny girl. The head of HR has already voiced she doesn't like me and if I make a complaint it won't be taken seriously, and I believe I will be fired for speaking up. I have battled with anorexia and body dis-morphia through out my life and have worked very hard with counseling to find a place where I was finally okay and happy with myself. Now, all of that progress is gone. I'm back to not eating and feeling ashamed for wanting to look and be healthy. I'm trying desperately to find another job. I don't know how much longer I can take the torture. What do I do? How do I get out of here and back to feeling good about myself?

Thank you so much for the kind words and support. I'm trying to keep it together but it's harder with every hour I have to be there. I can only hope I get a job within the next week or they fire me and I collect unemployment until I do. Thank you again.

Need advice

I have an interview next week. Here's the possible issue that may stop me from getting the job. I have an open WC case for harassment with my current employer, and I have been told it is the norm for the employer to settle and have me resign and leave the company. With knowing this I have been proactive in looking for employement. My question is how do I explain why they cannot Contact my present employer. My fear is they will give me a bad reference which I am pretty sure they will because the suit names the bosses boyfriend as the harasser as well as 2 others.
