Reprimanded for Doing my Work.

Question to Ask the Workplace Doctors about contract work: Our manager is trying to piss off the manager of the company that’s taking over by just doing what is asked. We have a contract to deliver the best possible service and this war between managers and looking for people to blame is stressful.

I am currently working as a computer technician in a company that does contract work. Our contract is expiring soon and we are expected to be laid off. I stick to protocol and follow instructions by the letter; however, the company I work for keeps changing procedures. If I do something in excess of what is expected, like fixing an extra computer, they say that I am not following instructions. Our manager is trying to piss off the manager of the company that’s taking over by just doing what is asked. We have a contract to deliver the best possible service and this war between managers and looking for people to blame is stressful. Any suggestion on how to make my situation a little easier will be very much appreciated.
