  • OT - Manager bad mouthing staff to other staff, can they get in trouble for this?

    Question for those that might know.

    Here's the scenario. 2 employees (A and B) are peers but work different shifts under the same manager. The manager bad mouths and complains about employee A to employee B when A is not around.

    Aside from this being bad taste and showing poor management skills, can the manager get into an trouble for doing this? Are there any rules or regulations that are being broken?

    Thanks

    As long as what's said is true, not really.

    As long as what's said isn't true, not really. A would likely lose their job if they sued the company for slander. That's about as much as could be done...and even then, good luck with that.

        I'd imagine that it would be left up to company policies. Some companies that I've worked for would definitely frown on this type of situation.

          Read your policies. I know in my company this is a punishable offense...Especially from management.

              Here's the backstory

              A few months ago my wife and I took part time jobs cleaning an office bldg in the evenings Monday thru Friday. Only one of us works each night so we switch off. I might work 3 nights and my wife works the 2 that I don't.

              The supervisor is the most miserable and hateful person I've ever been around. She hates the company, hates the people in the office, hates her life, etc. Nobody can do anything right except her. She has some serious issues and needs professional help in my opinion.

              We found out that she is really laying into us when we are not there. Some is work related and some is personal.

              I

                      If it's not something that is necessary for your family, it's not worth the stress. Tell that manager that she's an infected thundercunt who would do the entire world a favor if her uterus fell out of her body and then shot her in the mouth while making its desperate escape.

                      Or, you could just quit. My way would be more fun, though.
