MY WORST MOMENT
When reporting harassment and retaliation of an employee whom I supervised a decision was made to not terminate the employee. Since then it’s clear that they are very supportive of the employee even warranting a promotion and the damage continues to wreak havoc on my working relationships with my superiors and peers some aware and others unaware that a no-contact has been put in place which I cannot talk about. I have been berated in meetings, cut out of projects, been the center of jokes, mocked in a childish tone, told that I am alone and it has been strongly implied that some believe that I think this person is bothering me because I don’t want to help them with their work. Before this happened I was in good standing with managers and peers and had great reviews all around. I don’t understand why I am being punished unfairly and why I have been designated to the out-group by the highest level manager in my area. My core values tell me it’s not right that and one should never have to tell someone more than enough times to refrain from touching me, coming onto me, trying to insert themselves in every aspect of my life and making false accusations of my behavior towards them in front of others after filing a complaint. The individual is a high level manipulator and definitely reframes this behavior as “being inexperienced” to their advantage. Even the HR department told me that they think of the person like family. The boss lied straight to my face claiming that she had no knowledge of our interactions when we tried to improve the situation by lifting the no contact. I noticed that I am being heavily monitored and the boss sometimes talks directly into their phone when interacting with me and using other intimidation tactics. It’s a tight knit management group and they seem to be coordinating their efforts to get me out.
I HAVE GIVEN UP ON
Trying to convince them to support me.
This is going to destroy my career and going to EEOC is my only option.
THIS HAS COST ME
My sleep, time worrying about the next colluded attack, setbacks on achieving my goals and being black listed in the labor market.
SOMETHING YOU SHOULD KNOW
I am a hard working employee and always try to do what’s right but lately that seems like the worst possible thing you can do.
