I work as a technician in a factory, I believe I am being undermined by my boss. My boss started in this factory a couple of months after when I started. He previously worked in a factory where I worked. In actual fact he worked in a similar position as I had in that factory. In the factory where I now work my boss, boss started about a year after when my boss started. When my boss, boss started he was trying to find the ropes he used to regularly ask me about my job and was very helpful in getting equipment to help improve how things were done etc. I got the feeling that this was resented by my own boss. Eventually this all stopped and my boss, boss then would just solute and no more. Recently this all seemed to change and he now seems to completely ignore me. A couple of months back my boss questioned a job I had done and when I went to explain he walked off. Earlier that day my boss and his boss were working together overseeing the bringing in of a new machine and it is possible some discussion about me may have gone on. Since then my boss, boss has avoided me and ignored me, using his phone to avoid eye contact. I notice little things now where my boss tends to not ask my advice or opinion. All of this is now getting to me and I have no prospects of promotion in this company now. I am at my wits end and don't know what to do? Can you offer any advice?Should I talk to my boss, Boss or HR? or could this only make things worse with my boss?
Hi Ronan, I am not aware of the company bulling policy. Is it law that the company bullying policy should be available to all employees? I know I am been bullied but it is difficult to deal with without making things worse.
