I live and work in state of MA. I have been working for my company for 15 years. For 13 years I had good reviews, excellent
relationship with company management and complete mutual trust. My company provided very humane support, understanding and
help with my H-1 working visa and green card. I have never had any problems working with very professional and warm and kind
people in this company. Actually it's a trademark of my company - excellent and fair treatment of it's employees. Two years
ago I got new manager, who was hired at the same time. Since then I have been humiliated by his distrust, his rudeness and unfair treatment
. We were trying to come to mutual understanding. I was working very hard to do my best, XXXXX XXXXX always tries
to find something that he did not like. To make it short, he went to HR person and demanded for me to come to the office
immediately and to meet face to face with HR person. I did not expect it at all and also it was short notice. I was very
upset to the level that I had nervous breakdown. My husband called to HR person informing her the reason I cannot come. It
was on Thursday. Then I called her, saying that I already called the doctor, but did not have him called me back yet. That
is why I asked for two days off, that I had, until I will see the doctor and I will call HR on Monday morning letting know
of my state. And then we will go from there.I saw a psychiatrist on Friday, who gave me a document that I am under his care.
However, on Friday afternoon I got an e-mail from my HR, where she first accused me for not showing up for meeting in spite
we explained the reason. Plus she listed all accusations given to her by my boss, and 99% of them were complete false. And
I can prove it. Here are these accusations:
• Punctuality & Attendance: Beginning in March 2013, you were required to work on-site, but have not consistently
worked in Cambridge on a regular basis. Going forward, you are expected to work in the Cambridge office 9:30 am to 5:30 pm.
All time out of the office must be taken as Vacation, Sick or Personal, if sufficient balance allows.
• Reliability: Your ability to meet schedules, deadlines and accuracy of information given has been inconsistent.
Going forward you must reliably complete test plans, submit for approval and execute. The plans should distinguish between
tests provided by Development and those developed by you.
• Commitment: Overall there is a general lack of commitment to the role/department/company. We need to see your
commitment as exhibited by taking personal responsibility, being present to the needs of the job and the department and
adjusting and accommodating your work style.
As a result I was put on probation. Needless to say that it hurt me so much that I felt almost paralyzed. What bothers me
that HR took my boss's side, she did not listen to me. And also this is done at time while my two other higher managers are
on vacation. And I feel completely helpless. They also required for me to come to the office from 9:30 to 5:30 - this is
the hardest time in terms of traffic. I could stay in traffic up to two hours for one way. And they are aware of this. Our
company allows it's employes to have flexible hours to avoid the traffic time. All of these makes me thinking that it's
just an attack on me in order to destroy me or to get rid of me. Would you please give me an advise what to do next? I am
not going to take medical leave, I would like to work. But having two company officials being against me shamelessly and
aggressively accusing me makes me thinking that I need third party to help. Please help me with an advise what steps I need
to take further. I also must admit that all of these makes all my family members very nervous and put our health condition
into danger. Thank you very much in advance! Olga, Acton. MA.
