I can't sleep...this poisenous energy is building up in me and I need to get it out. I havn't breathed a word of how I really feel because it is the feeling I detest - powerless - a victim.

Its my workplace. I'm being shoved out and I almost dare not say it - but its a catty situation - and I know in my heart I have not done anything wrong.

I work at my fathers workplace. Technically I work for the corporation and he works for the company underneath...I'm in admin and he's in development. I'm A, he's B.

My boss told me she had to replace me as there is a policy of not allowing relatives to not work in the same workplace instituted by the corporation. She has been violating said policy since March 2006.

This is where it gets interesting - I am a receptionist/admin asst/project secretary in training. I was being trained for the project/development aspect. I go to train and am away from the phones a max of 30min a day. The former receptionist (now accounts payable) is supposed to cover me, along with the analyst. Except the proj sec offered to take the phones for me...as they whine about being too busy.

The head project secretary gets a phone call from my boss telling her that I should be answering the phones whilst training. Except one thing...I am breastfeeding and use the privacy of her office to pump once a day, for 15min. Sometimes twice if needed. The women that were supposed to cover me complained about having to answer the freaking phones...when in reality the project sec offered to cover me, but they said no, it wasn't a problem at first. Mind you, the phone rings maybe 5-6 times in an hour most often...ITS NOT THAT BUSY. Besides the pt, they didn't even have to answer the freakin phones! When my boss calls the project sec to tell her I should be answering the phones...she tells her well..she kinda has her hands full and I try to answer if the girls downstairs wouldn't pick them up immediately!

Basically the girls have ganged up on me, and my boss found out her hubbie has cancer...and she doesnt want to deal with any problems...so I'm getting the axe. Nevermind by CA law I am allowed to pump and should be given a private room to do so...but I tried to make it work without making a fuss about it...and all this was no problem when THEY asked ME to come back because they were DESPERATE to fill the position. I came back EARLY from maternity leave...first to come on as a P/T basis...until I saw how busy they were in admin and offered to adjust to a F/T to help them out!

The lady in A/P does about 25invoices per day! Which is what I was doing when I was there before I left for maternity leave!!!!Thats right...I was doing HER job AND reception...and I still had dead time on the job...HMMMMMMMMMMMMM...job security being threatened anyone????

My question is: if you have a problem with what your employee is doing...shouldn't you speak with said employee first before giving the axe and not go a round a bout and tell a fellow employee about it? And not hide behind some BS policy that is suddenly coming into the open????

I posted my resume the first night I found out and told my boss to expect to get reference calls...and that I was just checking out the market to see how much time I needed to plan for to find a new job. Well...I'm already getting offers so it really isn't. I'm just so angry over being treated this way. I'm taking computer software courses to improve myself for the job, and have been applying those concepts to the records mgmt and overall organization. this co is expanding and thriving...and I see that their system is going to be a problem in the future, it already is to inefficient. All this I did with my boss's blessings and smiles, and gratefuleness.

I just don't get it...I feel like I got hit out of left field with this...I have NEVER had a problem on the job before...I've always been praised as a hard worker and good employee at all my other jobs...and suddenly I'm getting bitched at.

Thats why I feel like a victim...and powerless in this situation. I know its not me, I've gone over it and asked the project sec if there was something I could have done better or differently. She told me she was so ticked off about it and felt threatened by the way they have blown me off she's getting her resume in order because she feels like she is out of the clique as well...and has been but didn't want to say anything.

Anyways...nothing I can do...or really want to as I will never trust these people again. Just needed to get this off my chest. Thanks to all for reading my pity party;)

You have plenty reason to be angry. They have no right to do that to you. But maybe this is just an opertunitly for you to find a better job. It still sucks though and I am sorry hunny

YEAH, thats the thing...THIS SUCKS! I just hate feeling powerless...and I'm DETERMINED to find a better job out of this. The only thing I'm using to stay positive is that there is a reason I'm being (literally) forced out is to move on to a better place. Its all part of the path...and I'm gonna take the scenic rte while I'm at it;) Wow..I feel SO much better after having written that and gotten it off my chest. Bad energy...BLEH!

Hows the preggo going?
