My question involves labor and employment law for the state of: California
I have several problems, but the 4th one is the biggest:
1) The light switched don't work in my office. The overhead lights work just fine, but the on/off switches don't work (for the last 3 months) so I have to work i the dark. I have asked that they be fixed, but my employer told me it would cost too much money to replace them and gave me a very small low wattage desk lamp instead. There are no windows in this office, so it is very dark which is a strain on my eyes and quality of work.
2) When they were recruiting me for this position they provided me with a job description of internal relations and marketing. Once I actually started working, it turned out my responsibilities are exclusively data entry for accounting.
3) I have had 4 different supervisors in the 9 months I have worked here, all with different policies and ideas of what my schedule should be. One of the supervisors propositioned my with illegal drugs while at work.
4) Because this job is not what I was hired to do, I requested for a transfer to a different department. Ever since my current supervisor found out about the transfer request, she has been treating me poorly; denied PTO, submitted a written warning in my HR file for being 1 minute late, assigned me to remedial job duties, etc. She even called me into her office for an unscheduled performance eval stating my performance is unsatisfactory and I am in danger of being terminated. When I asked her for specifics, she said it is just an all around problem. The thing is, she just gave me my scheduled yearly performance eval 3 months ago (prior to hearing about my transfer request) and gave a very high score with very flattering comments.
The hiring manager of the department I wanted to transfer to told me I was first choice for her open position, but she had to talk to my current supervisor as a reference just as a formality. After speaking with my current supervisor, the hiring manager of the other department told me she was retracting the transfer and I did not get the job.
