Question to Ask the Workplace Doctors about a write up:
Can my district manager enter a write up into my personnel file that I have never seen? I was told I was being written up, but he never showed me a document that I could read or sign. I feel I was being bullied and no document even exists.

Dear Bullied By Write Up:
Apparently, if you have been told correctly, you can be written up by your district manager. Whether this is within the rules of your organization hinges on what are its rules. Have you been bullied by this because you have not been informed and allowed to read it? Not necessarily. Your information of a write up might be simply that someone heard you were whereas what real took place was that the district manager made a note of something he/she disapproved. Supervisors and managers can do that. Is that good management? It is not good management to allow such a notation to get into a rumor mill.
