They haven't contacted me as of today some of the restrictions have been lifted however; I still have some...On December 10,2012 my supervisor pulled me into a one on one conference and restricted from working in the field. He also accused me of completing a client interview which I presented him with a statement from the client proving that he completed it. He also said my reports weren't substantial I asked for written clarification as to what is expected in the reports.( I also made copies of his old reports and they weren't even as good as mine.) On 1/21/13 he gave me my performance review which listed I did not hand in
ninety percent of my work how could I when he rendered me ineffective once he restricted from the field for over a month. As of today I must hand in a schedule of the sites I will be visiting and hand in a report within 48 hours of visiting a site no one else in my unit does this...I even have text messages from one person on several occassions telling me she is not a site but conducting personal business.
I don't know if I am being treated differently however; I am the youngest person in the unit, I have been out on disability for pulmonary embolism, pneumonia, depression, and rotator cuff surgery, I am a bisexual female. I am a permanent employee I had to pass a civil service examination, and have a degree to receive my position as opposed to the provisional employees (this is what my supervisor is and most of my co-workers), they were hired through their political connections.
Also, I am the only African-American female in my unit, my supervisor is African-American as well, I'm not sure if he doesn't feel comfortable asserting himself to my Caucasian and Hispanic coworkers.
