my daughter who works as Library Supervisor in Davie (Broward County) Florida has been asked to go to a pre-disciplinary meeting. She has been interviewing to get out of her current position because there is a toxic environment where managers are encouraged to pre-dis their employees (escalating to top management) if they suspect any wrongdoing rather than resolving it within the department. Doing a pre-dis means that one has to be present at a formal meeting with the Regional Manager and HR of that department. A pre-dis is strictly a fact finding meeting. The pre-dis notification letter which was sent to my daughter that there would be a pre-dis meeting next week, also copied other HR Managers outside of her department by her Regional Manager. Why? We assume because her Regional Manager doesn't like my daughter and wants to jeoperdize her chances at getting another job where she is one of 2 finalists for this other position. By this action, we feel that my daughter's chances for this other job have been potentially squelched. Does my daughter have any recourse legally because she's being prevented from seeking gainful employment in another department by the actions of this Redional Manager.
