Thinking of taking this to a laywer level. Should I?
Permalink   


I know I recently posted this a couple times but it's not gotten better.  I'm seeking adv ace as to if I should sue or not.

A fellow coworker is extra auditing my cashiering paper work.  Is this retaliation or harassment.  This is creating mental stress for me after work because my job is all of a sudden becoming at stake.  Why am I being treated this way?  How am I going to pay the bills?  Why is my disability making this location a challenge?  What am I going to do after?  It's difficult for me to get a job because of my disability.  I'm new to this location not new to the job but I've never had to do this at my other two locations.  I'm fully trained with company protocol and procedures.  This store is very very different form other locations I've worked at. Apparently they have store protocol not company.  All of a sudden I'm doing this wrong not doing it in the right order not doing it her way.  I swear she's out to get me fired.

 

When I first transferred in she started lecturing me like a new hire how to do things and when you came from a lead position at another store this is very degrading.  She coaches me on little detail things that I already know but assumes I am stupid and know nothing.  Before I realized it she's coaching me on how to do my job rudely and lecturing me about how I'm not doing it right on the floor in front of customers.  I'm fully trained and have 8+ years experience.  I've done temporary lead positions to fill gaps to see if I even wanted the lead position.  I nipped at her a little but later apologized then treated her as nicely as possible.  Unfortunately this opened up a door for her to treat me differently.

 

She makes me do more work than other cashiers.  She makes me print out extra receipts and take away receipts from customers.  (Which is far from company protocol).  Every time I price over ride, reign check, customer service or make it right I have to print, circle and scribble a why on it.  If the computer requests a customer license on the check I have to write it down on the check not the computer which always asks.  When the computer literally asks a 1-4 option and that's all the information she should need.  She enjoys finding errors in my work.  Yes I'm disabled and can easily be proven.  Yes my disability requires me to have a repetitious job with a repetitious pattern.  No I was not explained nor taught store policy when transferred in.  No I do not always understand what I am doing.  No I do not always mentally see things when errors occur.  First location I've worked at where store policy out weighs company policy.  I've signed this warning sheet more times than any other employees.  Enough signatures and a suspension.  Other employees show up on the same list she prints out that questions price changes.  Yet I'm the only name circled and I have to provide explanation as to why I did them.  No other book keeper does this just her.  I swear she occasionally looses my paper work too.  Video cameras would show me clearly putting it in the till bag.  Some how it disappears when it gets to her.  Then I get warned for it.

 

We are on the same pay scale she just has more job duties.  She continues to coach me like I know nothing and am a new hire with zero experience.  I find this quite degrading and she knows.  I've been job coached more times than any one else.  Yet I find she only does this to me and no one else.  I find other coworkers slacking off and doing the same b.s. I do but if she catches me I get a job coach lecture.  I can't even do operations at the podium without her nipping a lecture at me about how I'm not doing my job and slacking off.  I've signed this sheet more times than any other employees and they do not have to provide the same amount of paper work.  I'm afraid my disability is creating a hard ship for me with this job. Is this retaliation or harassasment?  I've worked at two other locations and I do not feel this is fair treatment.  I tell management with each incident but she still lectures me like I'm a new hire and extra audits my cashiering paper work.  I feel my disability is going to get me fired for lack of understanding.  This is creating mental hardship for me because all of a sudden I'm not doing a good job, I'm worrying about my future employment with this company, how long it will take me to get another job, how will I pay the bills, ect.  All I know is this needs to end.  Company knows I'm disabled.

Yes, I think you should.

And I think you should also not only spend every cent you and your family have on this planet, but go into a drain circling death spiral of debt to borrow even MORE money, to find a lawyer to take your case......and milk and bilk you like an 80 year old man being sold farm land in the Gobi.

Sounds fair.  The hard part will be proving it but I've been telling a couple different managers each time she does this sort of thing to me.  One management knows she displays bully like behavioral patterns because she finds a new target and does this stuff on a new target.  Until they quit or leave to another department where she has no say in what they do.

Don't waste what precious money u have on an expensive lawyer. If ur union steward won't help u then transfer back to where u came from or try a new store. Mgmt won't help u they actually like bullies cause it saves them from harassing u. You'd think they'd be glad to have an honest employee that actually shows up and works and doesn't steal.. but as much micro managing and butt chewings that they get from their bosses they get their jollies taking it out on low level employees. All the ones I knew treated disabled employees rudely and acted like u shouldn't be there. If all else fails- move on.. Kr is just one large, uncaring company anymore and retail jobs are a dime a dozen. Good Luck!
