My question involves labor and employment law for the state of: California.
I cannot trust my boss. When she found out I was about to reach out to my HR Rep about her disciplining me about leaving work 4 minutes early, she contacted my HR Rep and told her lies. She accused me of leaving work 45 minutes earlier than I really had (when there is proof I did not). She lied and said I did not inform any one of my doctor's appointment - lie.
She has accused me not being a "team player" when in fact she has not assigned me more than 5 secretarial assignments in the past two months. I am a senior level position.
She has used tones and phrases with me that are very authoritative in a parental way: "I'll deal with you later". Instead of assigning me actual work to do, she had me pack her office for her. Physically pack her books and files into more than 12 boxes. During this process, my knees were hurting and cracking (making loud cracking sounds), I asked her if she could hear it. She acknowledged she could. I explained to her that I have mild knee arthritis and that my mother recently had knee surgery because hers were so bad. My boss did not ask me to stop, in fact, she asked me to pack more things!
I felt obligated to pack her office because I had been accused of not being a team player. This was my opportunity to contribute. However, in retrospect, I feel very demoralized and insulted. I am a senior level corporate employee. She should have made arrangements with the appropriate people for packing issues.
I am floored that she lied so blatantly to the HR Rep! Since then I have been keeping a daily record of my tasks (or lack thereof) and other things I notice.
I really would like to quit, but I feel I'll probably be fired soon. If so, I feel it would be uncalled for and without merit. Does anyone have any advice?
