I resigned from a pharmaceutical company. I was the head of quality for a manufacturing site for 3.5 years. The company changed my reporting structure and I started reporting to the head of quality for the company two months prior to my departure on June 29th. I provided 2 weeks notice. The issue is that the head of quality was rushing our site to do too many things at once and compromised our position with the FDA. My primary function is to ensure we do the right things and stay out of trouble with FDA. I was very well respected by my peers and up through the CEO. My boss was a bully in the truest sense of the word. Two days after I left, the CEO announced he was retiring. In the corporate world, it means he was fired. So, I wanted to know if I have a case. Along the way of the new reporting structure, I had communicated my concerns to him directly and up the HR reporting chain. I could easily have 10 corporate people and more that would repeat and truthfully confirm that he was a bully and more importantly, placed the company at risk with the FDA. I am very sure if I pulled this trigger, the company would settle out of court. Please advise and thanks in advance.
JA: Because employment law
varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?
JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?
Customer: No, you are my first contact.
JA: Thank you.
Customer: what would you recommend as "next steps", if any?
JA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?
Customer: I think again, this person was a bully across the board within the organization and did rush the sites to potentially place us at risk with FDA. I don't want to pull the whistle blower card as at 51, I still want to continue working and enjoy what I do. He also indicated I lied about something I didn't and that made me make my final decision as all we really have in our life is our character. Folks can confirm he lied.
