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.

StormyWeather, you need to brush up on your reading comprehension. My post was that I had a FRIEND who used FMLA. And to everyone calling bullshit, how about you ask for the whole story before jumping on someone? I didn't feel like going into the whole sordid story about her working the system, so cool your jets! Yes, one can (and DID) use her FMLA and was off work for two years. This is the same friend who decided after fifteen years that I wasn't her friend anymore, and ended up leaving her husband and moving 800 miles away to be with a guy she met online. Yeah, she has issues. Damn, but you people are a hot mess!

In response to a confession. Maybe you should just focus on you, rather than what coworkers are doing. This level of knowledge of what someone else is doing is time consuming and not your problem or business.

So she didn't take 2 years of FMLA, which is what you said in your original post, and is what I called you out on. She took sick leave, vacation, and disability. And she got fired. If she got fired how is that getting away with it?
