Let's just say that you meet a nice coworker, your coworker is very helpful. But she tells you to watch out for the supervisor because he will discriminate on you based off of certain hereditary factors, and he has gotten a few fired. You supervisor ask you to survey and report your coworker on everything,...
FRACK, NO, I wouldn't help. That's the work-world equivalent of cannibalizing your grandma.
Nationality, gender, religion, race, ALL of that crap, are all secondary compared with the one factor that is the very BASIS of modern society -- SOCIAL CLASS. And no one of any age can be considered a full adult and a worthwhile human being until the first time they stand up for a fellow worker against the boss.
Conspiring WITH the boss against a fellow WORKER??? That's the lowest of the low. Depending on the job and the type of conspiracy, that should get you a penalty ranging anything from nasty looks to detached safety straps.
"I didn't see nuthin', officer. He must have been careless and not buckled his harness properly. A terrible shame, that's a long way down."
I'd play along, record the conversation, and then turn the recording of the conversation over to HR.
Loyalty is an important trait. When in company/employee disputes, I've found loyalty to your fellow worker is better. This is called "solidarity" and prevents workplace abuse, if it's practiced.
No. I'd report the supervisor.
No, I wouldn't want to take part in getting someone else fired. I'd rather stay out of it.
No. What I will do, though, is watch my back, and probably that coworker's too, till I can figure out who is a liar and/or if it matters. :) And look for a new job.\
I became great friends (for a while) with someone who previously seemed to hate me in just such a situation! Proved to myself that being good to others sometimes is all that is needed to change a relationship's trajectory. Showing that you are out for someone's GOOD.
I'd report him to hr. But since ur a man you'll prolly get her fired because she wouldnt sleep with you. How needy.
I am no ones bit ch
No - if he's got in trouble he must have been doing something wrong. He's looking for revenge.
I'd make notes of everything he says and record him asking this if I could.
I'd tell him I would never behave like that and neither should he.
No, and I'd want to leave the job. That's unprofessional and wrong.
