Retaliation/Adverse Employment Action
A frustrated employee goes over his supervisor’s head with a complaint of unfair treatment. While Open Door Policy allows this, who is out of line, the employee or the supervisor? “He said that proper organization was his responsibility, and if I didn’t like all these changes, I could just quit.”
This vignette paves the way for trainers to draw students into exploration of what constitutes an adverse employment action and how to navigate such a potential minefield.
Is the supervisor taking out a grudge on the employee? Is the employee taking out a grudge against the supervisor? And what actions should a wise manager take to resolve the issue? A wealth of thought provoking and informative discussion can be triggered by this vignette.
