    What about having some class, and man up and be direct with your boss!!!, instead of being a backstabbing coward!!!. I had a tough boss once and once I directly communicated to him how unfair he was, he actually listened to me, and things got better. At least try to have some morals and work it out,,,,,but then again maybe thats to tough to ask in these days when to many are backstabbers, cowardly, and just whine at anything. I found if you WORK and do your job,,,its amazing how your boss leaves you alone.

    HR will back the boss 200 percent and the worker who spoke up will be treated even worse than before. HR works for management and most HR people don’t care about workers at all. Ask any worker who has been brave enough to speak up about an unjust boss.

      Darn right. And the HR people also defend the company no matter what illegal things they are into. I now laugh at these articles which purport that HR is always on the side of “fairness.” They get paid by the company and they will not give up their paychecks for you or doing the “right thing”—ever.

    You can have all the documentation you can possibly write but if your boss is in tight with HR theres little chance anything will change, even the brickheaded GM. Go all the way to the top to the board of directors, that usually gets some follow ups with corporate HR and then down the line.

    “Make sure you are direct and clear.”
    This is very difficult for many women, who see clear, direct expression as being rude and confrontational. It’s also why many women and nearly all men can’t stand to have a woman as a boss. Everything is emotional. Everything is personal.

    In all cases, keep well documented notes, If your state allows you to, record conversations without them knowing it. Should be legal as you are in a public venu.

    If al else fails go to EEOC or the Labor Board.

      Hey, the EEOC actually ruled for me but it’s going on 5 years now and they haven’t fined my former company. Oh, and, by the way, try getting another job in a bad economy when you’ve had to complain about your former employer.

    I’m a firm believer of keeping documents

      I agree with the documents, but it also helps to have two or more employees who are willing to back up what is going on. I worked with a manager who was terrible and none of us could stand her. We all complained to each other but when it came to contacting the district manager, only one or two people would come through.

    Document everything. Keep copies when possible. My boss made a lot of mistakes, blamed them on me. Too bad I had a lot of documentation that it was HER fault, and proof she tripled costs. And that I had tried to get the errors corrected. When I was terminated for seeking a new job – I sent all those copies to the CEO. House was cleaned out two weeks later.
