I have been in a supervisor role for three years (6 years with the company including 13 months as a contractor). On 8/11/16, my direct manager advised me she believed I did not display appropriate management skills by delegating duties to one of my direct reports related to rolling out a new department. She terminated the direct report on that date, approximately one month prior to roll out, citing my direct report "overstepped his boundaries", which I viewed as a wrongful termination
. This direct report was responsibly reporting to me and remained under my supervisor at all times. He worked closely with me over the last six months, and is credited with playing a key role in following my guidelines and directly assisting with keeping the project on track.Since November of 2010, I've never been tardy, had zero unexcused absences, never been on any corrective action and achieved 3 or higher bi-annual employment reviews on a 1-5 scale. Based on the wrongful termination in my view, I have submitted my resignation primarily based on the above. Due to the situation, I view this as a hostile
work environment and want to request HR to change my resignation to a layoff
and request severance pay
. Thee fact my direct manager has been taking my ideas and suggestions and using them for her own gain, while remaining out of touch with the actual work I have been delegating and personally performing. In a sense, she is accusing me of what she has actually done, when the reverse is the actual truth.
