Question to Ask the Workplace Doctors about pushed out: She writes harsh comments on my work and says she is doing this to push me to get to the next level.
I was working for an attorney in a specific area of law and I was the only assistant who had any experience in that area although I only had a limited amount of experience. That male attorney, whom I assisted, left the firm and they hired a woman lawyer and made me her assistant. I set up her practice and got her familiar with the files she inherited from the man who left. After a few months I was too busy and they promoted the floater in our firm (a much younger woman than me with very little legal experience and no experience at all in the lawyer’s area of practice) to assist me and the lawyer.
