Demoted for Reporting on Supervisor

Question to Ask the Workplace Doctors about boss flirting:

My boss called me into his office a week after reporting my supervisor and a new girl flirting, I had just got in trouble for not reporting an issue. I was told I was demoted and he was sticking me on another shift…I am stunned to say the least. I have an appt with Hr in three days and have asked to be transferred out of that dept as it is obvious retaliation.

Dear Want To Be Transferred:

I assume your boss is not your supervisor and that he said you should have reported your supervisor and a newly hired woman were flirting. Right? And since you didn’t report that, he was changing you to a different shift. Right? Now you are angry about that and have made an appointment with Human Resources to request that you can be transferred to a different department. Right?
