I was being harassed and singled out by an envious and terrible manager for years. I endured it for about 6 years waiting for the day he would leave. He kept me hidden but kept me around for my ideas and skillsets because on many occasions I solved major issues that made him look like a hero and he never gave me credit or mentioned me in a positive light. He took credit for my creations and blamed me for his mistakes and bad decisions. Then one day he left with his middle finger in the air to our competitor and all of the sudden prople took notice of my knowledge and that my predictions were always right and over a two year period I was rising to the top and getting promoted so after 8 years I was finally getting where I would have been many years prior had he not been made manager. after alk the entire department was built around my creations at another Fortune 500 company that they copied. As i was getting my new position he was rehired without warning and became my boss yet again. I tried to put the past behind me but he was obviously upset that I was being promoted so he added a bunch of grunt work duties to my role snd told me nit only was he not going to hekp me in my new role but if I did t like the added duties I could quit. I took on the challenge and endured sabotage and tests by him and a few others that I outsmarted them on. come review tine he admitted I didn't drop any balls and no one conplained but proceeded to give me a 2.5 score in productivity 2.0 being the lowest. He had no valid explanation as he had done this to me since year one. he tried to give me all 2.5s the first time after he took over with only a few months left in the year. Saying he didnt know what my goals were or if I did them so 2.5 was my score. every year he would tell me these things don't matter and its just a stupid drill but giving me high scores would look like favoritism, Then i found out he gets to keep part of the bonus he doesn't hand out and the ligt bulb went off. So knowing i was on to him after my review he compiled avoyt 5 things to write me up on. one being a misspelled word and the other being a date I forgot to copy over to the second page of a preliminary order and in both cases nothing happened to cause issue. The others were lies. So i went to HR who promised to protect me from retaliation...i proved my case and they said he should not have written me up but the corrective or"punishment" plan still stood. I took leave if ansense, hired an attorney since HR fid not protect me from retaliation, they went on the attack. knowing if I won a case against their unfair bonus plan that others would follow suit , So I picked the wrong lawyer who took my money and case after extensive vetting and then did everything to convince me I had no case because I was White and got me a tiny fraction of what I felt I lost over the 10 years he was screwing me. He told me "you cant go back to work for them" which i stated okay I wasn't planning on it. But if he was my attorney he would have said " you will be ineligible for rehire" and explained what that meant. They had mediation without me present which makes no sense also. But i know some law firms are their to intercept your case to mitigate damages to the corporation, line their pockets and expand their firms notoriety. So since an employer cant can't make comments about you when a new company inquires about your past employment they tell them you are "Ineligible for Rehire" which is code for " do jot hire this person he is a bad employee,, criminal or whatever that conjures up in their minds negatively about you. They have blackballed me and I have lost everything because I stood up to him, believed HR would protect me, and trusted an attorney to help me. All because I refused to work under him another day. ...I had witnesses but they refused to interview them. only his teo cronies were asked snd one of them knew first hand but wanted to keep his job. Ket this be a warning how evil wrongdoers are everywhere in the corporate world and Im now dirt poor and unemployable for doing the right thing. I guess they can sue me now. but have nothing left having to use all my retirement over two years of recruiters calling and saying i'm perfect for the job and then refusing to return my calls. Im finally giving up and thought id share this for others to be warned.

do the right thing always

I was a temp employee at Price Industries trying to become permanent and every station i worked in I had to clean up after myself, those were the rules. So when my supervisor wanted the temps to clean in an area we had not worked in...I refused. I asked who worked in that area and he stated my wife and I stated that she needed to be cleaning up this area. This was after i tried to file a sexual harassment complaint against a permanent employee that worked there...I guess the system really works for the company huh...good riddance

I was working at my previous job for a month everything was peaches and Sugar and then they fire me for in their eyes “harassing a coworker” if anyone knows me they know that is soooo far from the truth and that that word is not even in my vocabulary! I am so traumatized by this because I wasn’t and nor would I ever in the future! It’s so easy to to fire someone from a store from corporate in WI when you don’t even know my story or who the hell I actually am. I was venting! No I’m not following anyone on that platform from work I am a nobody on there nobody knows me! sick and tired of getting screwed over by the same company. Worked there twice and got screwed over twice!! They are SoOOOoo desperate for people to work then they fire u for SUUUCHH dumbass to no reasons at all! All my coworkers loved me they would always smile and laugh and talk to me or say hi! When they heard my voice one person said “is that Britt?” In a very excited happy way like as if he couldn’t wait to greet me Like that made me feel so good and all of that went away! Because another co worker is very immature and couldn’t keep her mouth shut But I know deep down in my heart it’s for the best cuz I really don’t wanna be working on Thanksgiving anyway! Please let me know if any of u have been fired for a dumbass reason or no reason at all! Much love

I was sexually harassed by my male co-worker of Indian descent and got promoted within the company. I also cannot file for unemployment and also the company is giving me bad references. What can I do?

Last night I found out a favorite relative of mine passed away. But instead of calling into work, I go in with my relative’s obituary. First I’m promised to be given an answer about getting time off by 1130 am. First lie. I don’t get an answer until 20 minutes before my shift is over. An obituary isn’t enough anymore, not even with the name and phone number of the person who runs the funeral home. I now have to have a pamphlet from the funeral. Except I’m unable to go to the funeral for I can’t afford a plane ticket.

To make things even worse, an incredibly creeper customer comes in and even though my wedding ring is an easy spot on my finger, he continually hits on me. While my coworkers find it hilarious, and doing nothing to help me. The last straw was when the customer told me to get on my knees, so he can whip it out. I couldn’t take it anymore and went to management about him. He was escorted out and people were telling me he’ll be banned from coming back. Second lie. He’s allowed to come back for he was given ‘counseling’. Even though when I brought a manager over he threatened to rape me, like he did to another girl and got nine months in prison.

This is the second sexual harassment complaint I’ve gone to management about. But nothing is getting done. I want to put my two weeks in, but my husband and I need to both be working right now, but I’m afraid I get one more nasty customer I’ll lose it and quit.

Do I take my chances and go jobless for awhile, or do I suck it up and stay till I get something else?

I've been sexually harassed all my life ina all the jobs i ever had. I thought when i got older it would stop but it hasn't. I got laid off my good paying job because i wouldn't go out with any of my bosses. I learned to live with it. Im a woman working in a man's job. Now I've been without a job for 8 months and its driving me crazy. I still dont give up. I know I'll find something. I stay positive.
