No. My manager, NOT once approached me about it or anything. Remember, I am in the 'Supposed to be Dark" about it. He probably thought it would go away.. But, now that he knows the department is talking about it, I'm sure he knows, this has gone too far.
It was never mentioned to me.
I went to HR about it and they said, if no one comes forth regarding any type of Rumor, there was nothing that can be done.
I want to know how to approach this situation if no-one is rightly coming forth. This is truly involving deformation of character on my part of course. And the manager, director and staff are breaking ethical policies for the company. We just took a yearly ethics code of conduct test a few months back, on how to treat your co-workers, etc..
If this indeed was started by management, then there is definitely an issue.
But, I guess your concern is, no proof, no case!!
That is just it!
No one will go to HR on my defense. What's the use of telling me, if no-one wants to help me? Just me informed of the rumors??
They're too scared to say anything to HR, fear from being harassed, etc.
