Supervisor Harassment

Question to Ask the Workplace Doctors about a boss misinterpreting honest work: I was reviewing an article totally in line with my job on domestic violence with a 2 min audio by Halle Berry on domestic violence.

My new supervisor of 6 mos. is making statements of me doing wrong things that are not true. Example, today I was listening to audio on my computer via the Internet of Halle Berry speaking for 2 min. on domestic violence. My supervisor walked by my desk and said, “Are you listening to a Webinar? I said, “No; I am listening to a news audio.” She asked me to turn it off and I did. She then went and typed a memo to me cc(ing) my big supervisor. Her memo went on to say: “I have spoken to you regarding the Internet policy of the county. You are not to listen to Internet radio.” I was not listening to the “radio”; I was reviewing an article totally in line with my job on domestic violence with a 2 min audio by Halle Berry on domestic violence. I was researching and she made it sound like I was listening to the “radio” which was not true, and I feel put me in a bad light. She has done this several times. What can I do?
