Bully Coworker

Question to Ask the Workplace Doctors about:

I have worked in this company for many years and recently got promoted. A woman from another department from the first day I was promoted got upset to a point that told me, “Why in the world did your boss gives you this job?” I am in charge of areas that sometimes have to deal with her.

I replied to her email and gave some facts that I had been working on this case and what she achieved is incomplete.
