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?

I recently left a very secure position as an Activity

I recently left a very secure position as an Activity Director to accept a position w/ Hoamco as their Activity Director. It came with 3 interviews 3 separate dates. 1 With the property mnger 2 With the Board of 5 Directors 3 the Executive Director. After all the interviews the ED asked me to take a personality skills test & a software test was also required but she opted to not give it to me. She said your already hired so you don't need to do the software test. After being there 1 wk the BODs made changes to the position & added more software to my responsibilities. The training for the initial software was set up to be via conference call with the former employee who had my position. I was told by the BOD that she still wanted the position. The calls for training were from her home with many interruptions. Dogs barking, contractors interrupting as she was having her home renovated. She had to call back twice. She informed the ED & BOD I wasn't grasping the training & I was fired.

This is an update of my case and i want you to advise me on

This is an update of my case and i want you to advise me on whats the best route to take. I got a letter of reprimand from my principal and my attorney responded to that by asking them to provide a copy of the interviews conducted as investigations and withdraw the letter of reprimand or we will file a grievance. The lawyer of the school district on the side of my principal replied by offering a proposal that in leiu of me filing a grievance, they are willing to withdraw the letter of reprimand and give a positive recommendation. I asked my lawyer to write and asked for the case to be dismiss as well because they couldnt provide me with copies of the results of investigation they conducted if they really did.They replied that they wont dismiss the case but theyre willing to withdraw the letter of reprimand. Should i forego of the grievance and accept their proposal? If the case is open what else can the district possibly do against me?

I worked Optometrist months. Gave 2 week notice. He was mad.

Hi,So I worked for an Optometrist for 11 months. Gave 2 week notice. He was mad. Now I need him to sign my form so I can get my Optic***** *****cense. I need only 4 months, but I worked 11 months for him. He refused to sign the form so a representative from The Ohio Board Of Opticians, called him. He then said that he didn't realize that was what I needed and would be happy to sign the form. So the representative faxed him the form. I was thrilled. Next morning representative called me and told me the doctor felt it wouldn't be honest to sign the form because he wasn't supervising me, but was just my employer. So, is he or is he not saying that I was working, UNSUPERVISED in his practice for 11 months? Is it legal to have your practice open and running with no supervision? I don't really want to cause him any trouble, I just want him to sign the form. He's lying, I am telling the truth, I can't work without my license. He is just mad because I quit. I gave him 2 weeks notice, and i did everything I was hired to do, and then some.

I was terminated last week from Sonoma, CA winery after only

I was terminated last week from Sonoma, CA winery after only 6 Months. There were no indications this was coming down. There were no written notices or emails to improve work or behavior. My last 3 jobs were 10yr, 9yrs, and 8 yrs respectively before this job. They want me to sign a seperation agreement and give me 2 weeks pay. Moreover, this company embarrassed me with distributor which will affect my future job prospects as this was handled without class and respect for employee. It was a job that paid 40% of previous employer and they added insult to injury by how this was handled with distributors, etc. I do not recall signing any contract when hired nor can I find anything from HR except insurance applications, etc.

My supervisor had red both my daughters, at different times,

My supervisor had hired both my daughters, at different times, to work for the same company as I do. My supervisor preceded to say she would not allow family members to work next to each other. (I work in a 24 hour med. waver home for special needs adults.) Okay, I understand where she was coming from. My daughters are no longer at this job. My supervisor has since hired my co-workers mother. She, however, IS allowed to work next door to her daughter. How is this fair? Is this discrimination on me? And...there's more. A different co-worker & friend of mine use to work at the same duplex as i. She decided to move to a different housing site, same company, & would stop up to visit the consumers she use to work with. She'd have coffee with them & visit for about 20-30 minutes Monday thru Friday, just not every day. The MOM working next door to her daughter called the head office, complaining about my co-worker visiting. My co-worker was told she could stop to visit for no longer than 5 minutes. To stop the drama she just stopped her visits all together. Now, the MOM whom IS allowed to work next door to her daughter stops in everyday, Monday thru Friday & visits anywhere from 30-50 minutes. I myself have turned her in to the office staff more than once & nothing has been done to stop this. Isn't this a form of discrimination against me as well? There is more but would like your input on this so far. Thank you for your time kris
