Lynne Curry, Ph.D., SPHR (CEO of The Growth Company, Inc.) has over 30 years of experience in management consulting and frequently receives questions from clients regarding situations in the workplace. Today, Dr. Curry releases an article directed toward employees facing unfair treatment by upper management.
Dr. Curry received an email from a client, “What rights do I have as an employee when my company's personnel officer, who is ticked because I make more money than she does, puts gossip into my personnel file? Ever since I got my last raise, "Heather" has been on a vendetta. She interviews my co-workers about me, not realizing that they turn around and tell me all her questions. I've been told she takes copious notes whenever anyone mentions problems they think I have yet takes no notes when people tell her good things about me. I also find it totally creepy that twice I've found Heather sitting at my desk when I've come back early from lunch. When I asked her what she's doing, Heather says, ‘Oh, just leaving you a note,’ even though she has no pen in her hand. I'm not the only one who's come under Heather's microscope. I personally know two employees who feel Heather uses her position's authority to attack employees against whom she has personal bias. Unfortunately, neither wants to speak up. I also believe one individual resigned because she felt unfairly targeted by Heather and didn't want to put up with it. Do I need an attorney to help me here?”
