My doctor says I am suffering from abusive behavior on the

My doctor says I am suffering from abusive behavior on the part of my work supervisors. She is in the process of getting me a leave of absence to preserve my health. She used words like coercive and retaliatory to describe actions taken by my admin. I am to the point of crying whenever I talk about work. She prescribed for me an anti-anxiety drug "for the record". I have now researched traits of an abuser and my library site supervisor matches every descriptor. My doctor asked if the site supervisor is a person who has been moved around the library system. She has been at every library site but one. She has cultivated chaos at each site. When she leaves, the site returns to "normal."I have watched fellow staff suffer and decline under her "reign." I am a city employee and therefore am unionized. Our union rep reported that 12 staff members in the last two weeks have come to her about concerns, 4 of them in tears. The library director told her she was exaggerating. More the to story. .

Currently in an admin position. The HR department and Co-Managing

Currently in an admin position. The HR department and Co-Managing Director have stated that the behavior of the executives that I currently support will not likely change. Though they will address the name-calling and general rude behavior of one particular executive, they stress that it is paramount that I work where I can be happy. The aforementioned name calling has been (behind closed doors) douchebag, bastard, jerk, asshole, and dirtbag; sometimes on the same day.I've been in my position for a year and a half. He has been asked to stop the name calling; for a time the behavior is corrected. As his overall demeanor/tone are less objectively quantifiable, I find it hard to question whether or not his 'actions' and the position of the company could be considered cause for further investigation.

I have recently been downsized due to ...

I have recently been downsized due to "restructuring." However, I was a supervisor and my boss and I had different views on one employee that is friends with my boss. The employee was not performing to the standards, and the employee would tell my boss I was unfair. I have evidence of fairness on my part with this employee and all others. I was given a 4 day notice of the restructure, with a 20% decrease in pay. I was offered a lower position, but during my time as supervisor experienced, in my opinion and others in the workplace, harrassment from my boss. I asked my boss a month and a half ago if she wanted me to quit and she did not say no. I met with her and her boss, and her boss assured me the restructure is not due to my work performance. I have kept documentation of the treatment by my boss. Should I go to HR and/or file a constructive termination complaint? I do not feel the work environment is appropriate for me any longer due to the treatment i receive. thanks.

Concerning an employment separation agreement, is the stated

Concerning an employment separation agreement, is the stated termination date, punctually signed in agreement, still effective when the actual acceptance date exceeds the maximum acceptance date?For example:I singed a separation agreement (S.A.) on November 11, 2014 for termination on December 1, 2014. And I was required to submit no later than December 18, 2014.I learned the S.A. was not processed by former employer February 3, 2015 while inquiring about non-delivery of severance which was part of S.A. Former employer (HR) stated they would honor the S.A. upon receipt and validation of my copy of the S.A.I emailed such copy on February 12, 2015 and received my severance on March 27, 2015. Was this legal given the December 18, 2014 deadline and therefore, would my termination be December 1, 2014 or February 12, 2015?Regards,RA
