Recent Unfair Treatment questions

I work retail and recently my store manager was let go by

I work retail and recently my store manager was let go by loss prevention. I am second in command and my district manager asked if I wanted the store manager position I said I would consider it and he put me in as "acting" store manager and sent me to store manager training out of state and verbally poised me the permanent position. When I got back he met with me and said that the senior VP of stores did not want to promote me but would not tell me why. I'm confused because my store was the top three in the company last year and I have a proven track record with this company so I feel I am being punished because of my previous manager's mistakes. Is this discrimination? It's my understanding they are still look for a store manager and they are waiting for me to complete my 90 days as acting store manager but I have a feeling they have already offered it to another, they are just waiting.

What constitutes unfair treatment? I am in an untenable

What constitutes unfair treatment? I am in an untenable position, working for a man that is obsessive and paranoid. He micromanages every aspect of my job. He says one thing one time and then changes it another time. There are other things, but in general, what besides blatant unfairness constitutes unfair treatment?

My employer allows some employees to work from home while

My employer allows some employees to work from home while others are made to come into office, there does not seem to matter where you live (distance from work) title or tenure. Employees who get to work from home get reimbursed for their travel to office while those that are required to come in don't. Also, even though some people have same title they have different work loads. Do I have a case?

I am a black lady and she is a white lady. Over the period of years we have had difference confrontations. I have been to HR more than one time and they just keep saying we should get along. She shouts at me and this has been witness by the co-workers. I consider her bulling me and feel this is a hostile environment for me to work in now.JA: OK. Got it.

I am requesting separation from IBM /c I believe I have been

I am requesting separation from IBM b/c I believe I have been treated unfairly. Two examples are , I was not invited to a team meeting whereby the entire team from second line down attended / traveled too. Also my 25th anniversary was ignored. And, I had been asked on two ocassions to work 50% each on two separate teams, something no one was doing and resulted in poor performance which was hearsay more than metrics. Can I sue? Can I request a larger separation package?

I work state agency and, as part of my job duties, I

I work for a state agency and, as part of my job duties, I conduct maltreatment investigations. The superintendent of my facility has asked me to have a witness statement re-done in order to avoid the appearance of late reporting which could cause that witness to be fired. I do not feel comfortable with such a request and feel that if I followed this verbal directive I could be considered complicit in the maltreatment. I feel strongly that if I refuse this request, which he will not put in writing, that I will be targeted by him. I have seen this person target other employees and it does not go well for them. I'm only 3 years away from retirement and would prefer not to be fired after 31 years of service. I have no faith that higher-ups in the division will back me. Please advise as I have a meeting with him in the morning. Thank you.
