vaporleak Posted June 4, 2010 Share Posted June 4, 2010 I'm a manager at a company where a dagger in your back is the norm, and salacious rumors run rampant. I'm a strong person and have heard it all about me before, but this isn't about me, it's about my employees. Recently I found out that throughout the office (mostly including upper management), a piece of gossip was claiming that an employee of mine was on METH. This is unacceptable to me because the girl comes in, does her job, and leaves. God, I'm shaking just typing this, I'm so mad. I'm protective of all the people on my team because as a boss, not only is it my job, it's my instinct. The girl I am speaking of was interrogated, and when asked to do a drug test, openly offered to do it because she had nothing to hide. What makes it worse is that she has an alcoholic mother and won't even drink a beer (I've known this forever but never felt it appropriate to share with others). HR made her write and sign a statement during the interrogation, and I have no idea what she wrote out of fear, therefore damaging her record. I'm infuriated!!! I want to "professionally" slap these incompetent pigs in the face, especially because they are "upper management", and they need to realize that DEFAMATION is illegal. We have weekly meetings, and I feel the need to publicly humiliate them in front of our co-workers and peers by printing out copies of our "Code Of Conduct", pass it out, and couple it with a pre-written speech about how we need to treat this as a place of employment and guard our words, because lets face it, the average employee should feel safe coming to work. Even I feel like I put my boxing gloves on when I walk through the door everyday. This is insane and wrong, I need to change things with their very own rules. We are creating a hostile work environment, I need to speak up right? Need advice. Link to comment
