Harassment

Document everything and call the EEOC you are protected Title VII. I would not quit before going to them. It may take a little while to get in and then get a lawyer who will take your case contingent.

Asked to leave before my notice is up/ hostile work environment

Dear job chasers Advice? I have several weeks ago filed a hostile / harassment grievance against my direct supervisor, the matter was taken seriously by HR , & they have been investigating. Since then , I feel I have beenr retaileated against. Eg. Small infarction such as a paper being left unattended. Ect. Though , I hadn't been there in12 hours. & anyone could have placed the paper in a no secure area. However, getting to my point , I have found another posistion I feel good about. Today I was asked to come in HR with my supervisor & told I could go ahead & leave now, I didn't need to work my two weeks notice. I will get paid through all my days I was scheduled to work, when I asked " why" the only response was " it's tense ". I did get my supervisor to admit in the presence of HR , it had nothing to do with my work ethic or performance. I'm still shocked! It was NOT a termination. & I have that in writing. I just feel it's punitive. & told them so. I have been an excellent employee who has been at this company for over 8 years with excellent work reviews. Is this a common practice ? I felt like I was being fired Thanks for any comments or advise.

Reason for leaving question on a job application is not so favorable

I haven't had too much luck at the last to companies I worked for and left one under bad terms and walked out of the other because I felt harassed. How can I put this lightly on job application now?

My son just started a job at CVS under their 45 day program for new hires. I was under the impression that this company is a professional based business especially with the intense paperwork he had to read and sign which went over with great details on all rules and regulations something expected in today's world. After his first day of 8 hour of just paperwork orientation, he started the on-job training on an overnight shift to learn cashiering, stocking and floor presentation. Besides being left on his own after a few basic presentation, the following occurred, he was not punched in until 2:30 am after starting at 10 pm and only because he needed the assistance of the person who was training him to ring out an individual, second he was told because he was a management person he was not entitled to any breaks period except for one bathroom break and at end of scheduled shift he was told he could' t leave because again as a management person he had to work until all jobs were done for the shift (he received no list of jobs needed for shift either.). I strongly believe this was a case of harassment by the employees of that shift to get him to quit. What is the best possible approach to this situation?

I’m not signing this…..

I refused to fill out some company evaluation questionnaire because I felt managers were coercing employees to file positive reviews. Since then, the warehouse center manager has been changing my routes everyday then pulling me into the office because I was running one hour over the allotted delivery time. I know he’s going to give me a corrective action next time it happens which I’m not going to sign. Can I report this as harassment?

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.

Brian, I'm so sorry to hear about the trouble you're having! These are serious things you're describing and it sounds like you need a lawyer. There are lots of free resources on the web; try this link to the legal services team at Cornell University: https://www.law.cornell.edu/justanswer_interstitial.

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?

Discrimination suit?

Hi folks. I am a career sales professional. I've seen the posts by others, and thought I would seek advice. I am a competitive bodybuilder, so by nature, it is difficult to get some clothing to fit properly. I have myet suits , dress shirts and sport coats custom made, but Polo type shirts I buy off the rack. My HR called me into the office one day to tell me that my attire is "offensive and inappropriate" I was told my shirt sleeves are too tight. Mind you, our summer wardrobe calls for "Polo shirts, golf type shirts and slacks" so I was wearing exactly what everyone else was. Many overweight men wear the same shirts, but they are tight in the belly, and they have not be repremanded The C.E.O. then called me into his office, and said I was just "trying to show off (my) your muscles" . This turned into more and more harassment , including disapproval my tailored shirts (" I hate black. Don't wear that again , it looks terrible ") Finally I was again summoned to the CEO, and was told I'm being paid too much, and my contract was torn up, and I was presented with a new offer $36,400 lower. I need the income, so I had to accept. Michigan is an at will state , but does anyone think I may have a case here?
