After 13 years of working in my current position, my new VP (she has only been in her current positon from May 2017 to present) has created a hostile
work environment and has been verbally abuse to me. This past Feb. she completed my performance eval where she gave me mostly all unsatisfactory ratings and stated that I am not fit for any other Executive Assistant positions within my company (I have been with my current employer for 17 years). She mentioned that I am not "approachable" despite her stating in a department staff meeting (28 + employees) that she wanted to punch my 2nd Executive in command in his face and that he was old and just needed to retire. Last Fri. I met with my VP and an HR person to discuss my response to my unsatisfactory ratings and during that meeting she yelled at me that I was a "liar" twice and put her back-hand up to me. I feel very uncomfortable around her and am very worried about my safety
and future. If she could blatenly state that she wanted to punch the Executive in his face..what would she do to me?
JA: Was this workplace safety issue discussed with a manager or HR? Or with a lawyer?
Customer: Yes. After the meeting another collegue and I contacted Compliance about it. I know that she met with HR and her direct manager, but I am not sure of the outcome. Last Friday, when I mentioned about it to her and the HR person that is when she called me a "Liar". She looked over at the HR person and semi laughed and said "all I said was everyone at Inova always says Richard (the Exec) is old and just needs to retire...that's all. However she herself that he's old and just needs to retire and she wanted to punch him in his face. I even said to her in the meeting..."Did you not see me look over at you when you said that with a shocked look on my face"?? She did not respond to my question.
JA: Is the workplace "at will
" or union? Is the job hourly or salaried
Customer: I work for a Health Care System in No. VA with over 6 hospitals, nursing homes, etc..etc. My office is located at one of the Hospitals.
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: No. There is nothing else. Can you tell me the process of how this works, once I am connected to a lawyer?
