I was fired for a personality conflict with my boss - or was it workplace harassment?
(Irvine, CA, USA)
My manager believed that I had conspired with other people in the dept against her on an ethics charge that was submitted by an employee against her with our company. She believed incorrectly that I was behind it and then she conspired with others in my dept to sabotage my work and harass me...ultimately leading to my being fired. She is not above lying about anything but the company does show that an ethics complaint was placed against her...what do you think about my getting unemployment benefits? I have never been fired before and I also have e-mails from other people in my company that say that I have done an outstanding job at work.
I personally would not call that a personality conflict, but rather retaliatory measures by a person in authority over you. Did you never complain to a higher authority than her...like HR???
It is illegal for an employer to engage in this practice and I think you should not only file for unemployment, but file an EEOC complaint and maybe even talk to a lawyer!
