First and foremost, I hope that your medical issues are now under control and you have gotten better. You are correct in your assessment of the matter. Your assistant and the Director broke protocols. Your assistant should have come to you first to discuss the issue and then if she felt that she was getting a brush off from you, she could then go to the Director. I find your assistant’s action quite troubling since she appeared to have given you her blessing and then went behind your back to complain. You should watch your back because she may be after your job by the way she acted. As for your Director, she should have come to you to discuss the matter instead of telling you to speak with your assistant as if the assistant were boss or your equal. You should send a formal letter to the Director expressing your discontent on how the matter was handled and copy the letter to your Human Resources Department. If your assistant breaches protocol once more, it should be cause for her termination.
