Driven Out Of My Job, But Manager Says I Quit

Question to Ask the Workplace Doctors about quitting:

I quit because of all the things my manager did to drive me out the door. He told the owners that I quit. Should I tell them about the dozens of things the manager did to me in the last 90 days to show a pattern of pushing me out?

Dear Pushed Not Jumped:

It’s a shame you didn’t talk to the owners while you still had your job. However, I do think it would be worthwhile to let them know of the things that made you feel you couldn’t stay. The manager has undoubtedly told them his perspective, so you should express yours, if you truly believe he acted wrongly toward you. Put it in writing, so they can think about it after you talk. List the things that happened and try to provide some verification of it if you can. Keep it brief as an unemotional sounding as possible, to put an emphasis on the facts of the matter.
