I have filed a grievance for harassment RE: intimidation and also feel as if i have been discriminated against.
I am the only male in a four person department. I have recently exhausted my FMLA time for two separate conditions. I have been in my position for three years and always received glowing reviews.
I started getting the feeling that they were looking to fire me when i missed a week due to illness per doctors orders, pre FMLA. I was written up for something that had been standard practice for 2 1/2 years.
I work in HR and asked a hiring manager what salary range they had in mind for the position they were looking to fill. I had comments made towards me like “failure” and “disappointment” after the fact.
I proceeded to file the grievance (which was dismissed) and was then written up two more times.
At years end they rendered a horrible performance review. I have been sick with a separate condition for a week or so.
The working conditions are very toxic and I can’t hardly bring myself to go in another day. Should I quit stating harassment/discrimination or continue to call in until they fire me. I am in a great deal of emotional distress. Please help.
Well you know, I was following right along until you brought up the “salary range, HR hiring manager and the new position”. Does this have something to do with your situation?
What it sounds like you are talking about is quitting in “Anticipation” of a discharge and this is a disqualifying reason to quit almost always.
If the grievance for harassment was found to be without merit .. I would ask if you have stepped up your complaint with an agency complaint .. either EEOC or if Indiana has a reporting agency for this type of complaint. You do know that that alone might provide some protection of your job for a while? And is something I do suggest if one is going to quit due to harassment.
If you would like to discuss this with me more, I suggest you consider a phone consultation with me.
