Do you feel as if you ballanced something out or is it just revenge because you are angry? Either way when I agreed to hire Ritah you promised not to let her come between our working relationship. And here we are. I should have trusted my gut feeling.

The following is the correspondence that I received from HR. It includes my follow up emails, and the response that I received from the regional manager. Drew, I spoke to XXXX XXXX, and we agree that it is important to have a speedy resolution to your concerns and complaint of harassment, hostile work environment and fear for your safety around your store manager at 0229. As I explained on our call today, our typical procedure would be to place you on a paid administrative leave or transfer you temporarily to another work environment until we can resolve your complaint. We would like to do what makes you most comfortable and the decision will be yours. Since you expressed concern about a loss of income, XXXXy will arrange for you to work tomorrow (Saturday) and Monday (if you are scheduled to work) in neighboring stores XXXX's Corner or Baileys Crossroad if you would like to take that option. Our intention is to have a resolution by the end of day Monday. Please respond to us by email if you intend to be at either XXXX's or Baileys tomorrow. We request that you keep our conversations confidential and not discuss them with co-workers or other managers. You mentioned having additional documentation that you would like to submit in writing, and I encourage you to do so. Thank you for your time today, and I regret that you did not feel it was the best forum in which to communicate. Thank you, Robin Robin XXXX| Human Resource Manager | Tweeter XXX XXX XXXX, XX, XX XXXX T: XXX-XXX-XXXX| F: XXX-XXX-XXXX | E:XXX@XXXXXX.XXX This is a private communication intended solely for the recipient addressed above.

Reply Reply to all Forward Drew XXXX to XXX, XXXshow details 7:23 PM (3 hours ago) Reply XXXX, I know that you said you were going to call Mr. XXXX and talk to him about this matter. I was hoping to have the same opportunity. I would like to provide you some additional info regarding this issue. I feel as if I am being punished, and banished from my own store when I have done nothing wrong. I was expecting to meet some of my clients at the Fairfax store tomorrow. I would prefer to follow up with the clients personally. I am confident that I can continue to be a professional, I would just like to request that I not be in a store alone with Mr. XXXX. Regards, -Drew XXXX- Show quoted text - Reply Reply to all Forward Drew XXXX to XXX, XXXX, XXXXshow details 7:28 PM (3 hours ago) Reply Robin, Thank you for your email. The store will have adequate coverage so that I am not in a one on one situation with Mr.XXXX tomorrow. I am planning on having the documentation that I intend to provide reviewed by an independent third party. I will do my best to provide it you as promptly as possible. Regards, Andrew XXXX - Show quoted text - Reply Reply to all Forward XXXX, XXX to me, XXXX XXXXshow details 8:17 PM (2 hours ago) Reply Drew, Regardless of whether you are in a “one on one” situation with XXXX, working at the Fairfax store tomorrow through Monday is not an option. You classified the situation as a hostile work environment and therefore we feel it would be inappropriate to allow you to return to that situation at this time. We will continue our investigation and come to a resolution by the end of business on Monday. Consider yourself on administrative leave through Monday 9/29/08. Please do not persist in trying to convince us otherwise. Please do not show up for work at the store tomorrow. If you do, we will take further action, up to and including, termination of employment. Thank you, Anthony
