Question to Ask the Workplace Doctors about warnings: Is that legal to make me feel as if I can’t go to higher bosses when I can’t get a solution?
I was given a verbal warning because my boss said I reacted in a way that was offensive to her and disrespectful. I was in a meeting with her and felt that was inappropriate so I said that the conversation was over with and left the room. I went back to my desk and shot off an email regarding the meeting to my VP & HR contacts.
Three work days later I get this verbal warning so called. However, I didn’t sign anything acknowledging this warning. Should they give me something to sign? If this was a scare tactic is that legal to make me feel as if I can’t go to higher bosses when I can’t get a solution?
