Question to Ask the Workplace Doctors about coworker gossip:
A co-worker started a rumor that I got a job elsewhere and I want to leave 3 months after I started working here. The management has responded to this by trying to label me as a bad employee and they have always wanted me out anyway. Now, management is playing dirty to try to fire me before I quit for my “new job”.
Every mid-month and month end I get harassed by at least one co-worker and the management as they think it is on these days that I am likely to leave for my new job. Since this gossiper is someone who has been around for a long time and has ties with management, people tend to listen to him and every month end/mid-month he unleashes one co-worker for me and now I practically have no one to speak to or trust.
