When I worked for a call center I had a customer complain to the manager about me because I do not speak Spanish. How about him learning English?

In response to a confession. I used to work for a very well-known, global company. We had a very strict call-out policy. Three "sick" incidents in a year would get you a write up and on probation. Any calls outs during probation would result in termination. That being said, I had a coworker who was approved to take FMLA for her chronic sinus infections due to the nature of our job. She didn't abuse it, but she did end up getting fired when she went on a short trip to a third-world country with friends on her days off, and got sick and couldn't fly home in time for work. The company accused her of lying so she could stay - alone - in this country a few more days.

I can't tell anyone IRL but DH's department head is possibly moving out of state, and that would put DH in a perfect position to head the entire department. He's the next in the hierarchy, and when the department head went on vacation last month they had a major issue come up while he was gone and DH absolutely nailed it and everyone was really impressed. I'm really hopeful!!!!

In response to a confession. I'm glad you reported her. Going over your manager's head is the only way the company will deal with the bully. I was in a similar situation a few years ago. Just keep documenting and report everything you can.

Work would be so much more tolerable if everyone just minded their own damn business.

In response to a confession. Thank you. It is a very small company, but it's a franchise of a large name. 5 employees plus the GM to rotate 3 shifts (1 person 1st, 2 ppl 2nd, 1 person 3rd), 7 days a week, we all end up with over time.) I spoke with the owner today for a long time. He's upset that the GM never told him about my previous complaints. He promised they'll make it work so that I don't work with the bully coworker. He must have laid into the GM about everything cuz she called me up with anger in her voice saying I can come back to work tomorrow (bully and I weren't allowed to work until owner is done investigating) and complaining how hard this will be on her that she has to figure out how to do the schedule. I don't feel sorry for her. Had she done something any of the times I told her about the bullying, it wouldn't have gone this far. But I'm sure the GM will look for any reason to fire me after she trains a new person. I've spent yesterday and today applying to jobs online.

In response to a confession. I am so sorry you are going thru this. I have a feeling you are working for a small company. The best thing to do is look for another job.

I think the posters said FMLA confession was BS because it's usually only allowed 12 weeks off per calendar year worked. Meaning after the 12 weeks is up, you have to come back and work another full year until you are eligible for another 12 weeks of FMLA. Plus there is a couple of pages of paperwork that the doctor had to fill out every time you take it. At least when I did HR at a previous job that's how it was.

I have a co-worker who has been bullying me. I told my GM to get it to stop, GM did nothing other than say "you two need to get along", even though I'm the victim. It's basically telling me that I just need to put up with and keep quiet about the bullying. Co-worker is a ticking time bomb, everything is smooth for a while, then she goes off and is hostile for a while. I'm always in "brace myself" mode cuz I never know when she's going to explode. I've complained about her multiple times, GM keeps saying "you have to work with her, get along". During a calm period, she showed me porn after I told her I didn't want to see it. I filed a sexual harassment complaint today for it. All of this is causing emotional distress, as well as physical illness (migraines, arms feeling heavy/weak/tingly, chest/stomach pains, diarrhea). Anyone been through this? Can they still force me to work with her? They can put her on other shifts and have us work different days, GM is too lazy to figure it out.
