I was hired 6 months ago in a Lead position, and have issues about my treatment. I was never supposed to succeed. I was set up to fail, and I had previously been employed by this restaurant for 6 years with a great record. I have now been demoted, and without any explanation.

My Agency allowed my supervisor (the (defendant) and other

My Agency allowed my supervisor (the (defendant) and other Management access to files and evidence in my office during an EEO investigation of harassment, discrimination and retaliation. They boxed up my office after leaving it untouched for a year. I am still an employee on LWOP. I have accused them of tampering with evidence, and not protecting and preserving evidence during a federal investigation.I now want access to what ever evidence is left and to my computer files where I have evidence as well so I can rebut managements affidavits and the EEO Director for the Agency will not respond to me. ORM manager advised me to deal with the Agency EEO Director. I also want to request the video tapes of management cleaning out my office to be preserved? Any suggestions?

I was told by my supervisor in Albuquerque, NM that I need

I was told by my supervisor in Albuquerque, NM that I need to agree to her training plan or be terminated (told By her she had HR buy in).The training plan is for a research position that was recently vacated in which I have no significant experience in and is in addition to my regular supervisory duties. I haven't seen the training plan as of yet but the responsibilities for the position is expansive and the training has been intimated to be very aggressive.What are my options?It has been made clear to me that I will be terminated on the spot if I refuse to sign.I have recently filed a harassment/hostile work environment claim with HR regarding this supervisor and my work life has suffered significantly since. I feel this is her way of trying to force me to resign or be fired.

I work as a 2nd shift supervisor major medical company in

Hi, I work as a 2nd shift supervisor for a major medical company in Florida. Recently, I've been placed on a 90 day - Performance Improvement Plan for missing my project dates. The PIP new due dates for the projects are unrealistic and unachievable. Knowing the company is downsizing I feel it's a ploy. Plus, the projects I'm assigned doesn't fall under my job description but under a manufacturing engineer II. I'm 1 of 3 supervisors (2 on dayshift) and the only one that was not assigned a laptop to work from home. The other supervisors have two leads each. I have one that's been on maternity leave for close to 5 months. Working 2nd shift clearly has limited hours of resources. That, along with not having a laptop and assigned leads. Puts me at a disadvantage. Do I have a leg to stand on in regards ***** ***** my job?

My supervisor red me as a nurse in workers compensation. She

My supervisor hired me as a nurse in workers compensation. She knew that my background was in medical bill review, case management and geriatrics. She is constantly calling me into her office to discuss why I am not asking more questions. She demands that I send my questions to my colleagues and also to her. I really don't have a lot of questions. If I do go to a colleague and ask a question verbally I am reprimanded and told that I must submit my questions via email. I recently verbally asked a question and my colleague reported back to my supervisor that I got huffy. When she abruptly responded that she did not have time for my question I just said, "whatever I guess I'll work on it later" and just walked away. I would not describe that as huffy. My supervisor also regularly asks my medical director if I am giving him all the information he needs for review of cases. If there is even one thing that I missed she brings it to me as if I am the worst employee in the world (this happens on a weekly basis, sometimes daily)I recently had a situation where an MRI clearly stated that there was a meniscal tear and the medical director advised that there was not a tear and advised that we should not pay the claim. The claims adjuster brought it back to me to find out why he said there was no tear. I told him that was what our medical director said. We went back to the medical director and he again said that he did not believe there was a tear even though it said on MRI that there was. He agreed that we had to cover it because it the said it was there. He said that sometimes doctors will say there is a tear to justify doing the surgery. Personally I think that he did not see the tear the first time that he looked at it. Now every time that I bring a case to him to review, he tries to find something that I missed and point it out. I am starting to feel uncomfortable and isolated at work. What can I do about this?I think my supervisor and teammate are conspiring together and now because I found something the medical director did not see he is now causing me issues. My supervisor states that I have not progressed the way she would like. I have never had any complaints on my claims and I guess I just don't understand what she is referring to. I had a claim today in which the guy was injured when a suitcase fell of a desk and he tried to catch it and injured his lumbar spine. A couple days later he was attacked by one of his autistic clients. When I took it to our medical director he asked my about the attack that was noted and I told him that the gentleman was attacked an his glasses were pulled off and he quit his job after that. My supervisor obviously asked him about the cases I reviewed with him and he pointed out that I did not initially mention that the gentleman was attacked after the initial injury. Even though I did answer him and tell him about the details of what happened. It seems as if they just try to find things to bring to me on a regular basis. I am really frustrated and I feel almost harassed. What can I do?
