I work at a major auto and created tech used globally, and

I work at a major auto and created tech used globally, and have been recognized as the inventor/architect of a set of tools allowing global visual communication. (I received the top award in the company for this). At the beginning of 2016, a decision was made by leadership to split the team into two orgs. I wrote to leadership stating why I thought it was a bad idea, and asked to discuss it with them. No response. My old boss had been harassing me by communications (email and verbal convos) which call in to question to people I am working with the direction I am leading the tech. Also, she had a person who works for her (my former peer when we both worked in the same org) move out the contents of my office without my knowledge. This violated Union rules as well. The union millwright moved the packed up boxes and contents back to my office, where they sat for months while HR did an investigation. After two months, I unpacked my office, tired of waiting. Several items from my office were broken or damaged, including my award. Then a few weeks later I was formally disciplined by HR, who said that unpacking my office (and voicing dissent to them and to the team over management decisions to split the team into two orgs) was a hostile act and I exhibited "poor leadership behaviors". This has been written in a disciplinary doc and in my interim perf review. Is this just something I have to put up with, because it isn't a violation of race, religion, gender...?

How should I go about moving up my complaint about upper

How should I go about moving up my complaint about upper management? I have been dealing with at first an insubordinate employee for a few years withou any support from my leader. Because of lack of timely action on HR part, the insubordinate employee succeeded to stay and soon after a new employee who isued to work very well with me begin to exhibit same behavior which I brought up to his attention but continued. It took almost a year to get HR involved and provide needed warming. Now I seemed to have been slowly demoted and this insubordinate employee to be given more support and more opportunities to succeed in the organization and even was told he'll be sent to leadership training. My new manager does not seem to care about his behavior with me. Has told my employees to not come to me with anything and patients/clients have been told to go to her with any complaint, not to me. I was told this manager was put over me to support me in my told but I do not see that, it's quite the opposite. Further more, I worry about my job, have not sleeping well, I have to take medication for blood pressure and I'm constantly wondering what's next. I am wondering if this has anything to do with the fact that this insubordinate employee has family influences in the organization. What options do I have to make my case heard? Thanks!

I work small company that is a owned by a larger credit

I work for a small company that is a owned by a larger credit union. 3 months ago they promised me a new role in the company because we lost a contract with one of our clients; they stated they still wanted me onboard after the contract ended in August. In my meeting then they told me they will write up a new job description etc. A week ago; the president of my company was promoted, and another employee; then they told me they "changed their minds" about me continuing and said I was being laid off because of the lost contract. I have nothing in writing yet; but this upcoming Friday is suppose to be my last. I am 40 years old; I hope to find another position but this whole thing seems very unethical and perhaps illegal were it has been handled. Should I sue them? Do I have avenues for complaints etc?
