Thanks for replying.
So how should I let them know my final position now without looking like a trouble-maker? Because that's the way they make me feel when talking to me.
During my last conversation with HR over the phone last Tuesday, they told me that I raised a complain using an inappropriate place to do it, but they addressed my issue and the manager recognized his mistake. They have documented it in their files and kept HR records. The issue is now closed since I said I was okay with that ending.
So for them, there are no reasons for me to keep it in my mid-year assessment, especially knowing that it can hurt me when i look for another position in the bank. No hiring manager will want to hire me after reading that. She told me that I have to move on now and focus on building a better working relationship with my manager.
Yesterday, I received an email from my manager reminding me that he had a discussion with HR and they told him that I have agreed to remove my comments in my assessment and he will do the same too. I have to call a number and ask them to reopen my file since it is now locked up in a Read-only form. I haven't reply to his email.
Honestly, I don't feel it right. Should I call the HR again next week to tell them my final position? If yes, what should I say that won't look like I don't cooperate or accept the rules? Or should I just wait for them to come back again at me?
Do you think they can find a way to either fire me or make my life miserable during these last 2 months before mat. leave?
And finally, when I come back from mat. leave, I'm pretty sure they will try to get rid of me. Do you think I can still use this to fight back?
Thank you very much.
HR came back and are asking me to acknowledge at least as an additional comment in my assessment that the matter has been handled and resolved and that I am okay with the closure. They want me to submit my draft to them before modifying my file in the system. They said otherwise, there is still a loop and in that case, an official discrimination complain will have to be launched with a formal investigation.
Before this incident, my working relationship with my manager was not great. Even though I had only positive feedbacks from all my business contacts so far and I delivered only very good results, he reported me to HR complaining about my "disrespectful attitude" toward him.
Since the resolution of my unfair treatment by the HR, he has limited our working relationship and I feel pushed aside. HR told me this can be considered in the case of an official investigation.
What is the best course of action for me now if I want to come back and get my job after my maternity leave? Should I just accept the HR's proposition to acknowledge the resolution of the issue or should I go for a formal escalation of this issue and an official discrimination complain?
