I have been working with my company, a 501C3 in Florida for almost 6 years. I have never had a write up, or verbal notification. My newest superviser, who has been my boss for about 1 year, has not been effectively performimg her job. She manages a territory, and is supposed to check in with us at least once or twice a week, and meet with us in person to do a calender review. I am not a ladder climber, and I have the mind set that if someone is not doing there job, it will ultimately show on their own accord. I recently learned the answers to many of my questions; she has only a HS diploma, and no college. She was promoted because she has been with the company for over 20 years. She has always been stand-offish when we have met in person, and I can tell that she does not know what the hell she is doing, and it is apparent that she bit off more than she can chew. I am on salary plus commision, and we are required to fill out daily reports so that we know how close we are to goal, and how far we need to go to achieve goal. I never questioned her spreadsheet, and I was going by what the sheet told me. I even have an email from her that on Sunday, April 29th, I needed a number of 15 to meet my goal. So, we were BOTH on the same page, as well as the staff that I utilize to help me reach these goals. Well, needless to say, I went all out and made it to 13, and could do no more. I asked her since I could have and would have made that goal if our equipment was working correctly, could she go to bat for me since the equipment breaking for 4 days was not my fault, and on MAY 4th, she asked what was I talking about, I missed my goal by 31 units. I went in, and it appears that she had not done the original spreadsheet correctly, and had changed it 4 times since the end of April. My bonus is $3000.00, so you can imagine the outrage I felt when I had interpreted the spreadsheet to be accurate, and she also confirmed the numbers needed in an email, which I have. I have all of our correspondences printed out, because I know I cannot trust her. She then shows up on 5/12/12, without announcing she is coming, and asks where I am. I am a saleried employee, and I am was out in the field. I returned to my office, where she made me sign a form that I did not make my numbers for the first quarter, and that document was dated April 3rd, and informed me I was on a 30 day probation. I noted on the form that the area I cover has never made the goals since I have been at that location for 5 years, and if she would have listened, or showed up I could have shown her the trend. So, since I did not get the document until May 10th, was I off probation since at that point, I thought I had made April? The rest of the story, she knows that I am in a very bitter divorce, and I am dealing with alot. I have a 2 year old son, and as most divorces, this is a messy, complicated one. On Top of that, to my shock, I found out that I am 2 months pregnant, (Yes, it IS my husbands), and I am considered high risk since I will be 40, and under so much stress. I informed her on the 16th of May that I was pregnant, and did I need to tell HR or anyone, and she told me no. I went ahead and notified my insurance company anyway, and told another manager just to cover myself. On Wed, May 18th, she shows up at my office, and told me that an "anonymous" phone call had been made to our HQ that I am on drugs
and that I needed to surrender my work phone to her, and go immediately with her to LabCorp and submit for drug
testing, and that I was suspended with pay pending the outcome, which will be NEGATIVE. I am so upset, that I actually was put on anti anxiety meds by my doctor because he felt that the stress could compromise my pregnancy. I go back to him on Monday the 23rd for a sonagram, and I honestly do not want to go back to work, because I know she is setting me up, and I am not going to let her destroy all of the progress I have made. Do I have any grounds that protect me under the "Pregnancy Act" and is there any legal options for me to take? I am about to break under all of this pressure, and I need to focus on my son and the baby that is growing inside me.
