So I started keeping records, in anger, and those records contained comments about her which were filled with obscenities. Keeping such records on your employer's IT system was an incredibly lousy idea.
I was planning on making it more professional and using it to protect myself when she tried to have me fired These records, even cleaned up, would not have provided you with any legal protection if your boss decided to fire you.
She became intensely dissatisfied with me after I made 3x's as much money as I was supposed to and searched my computer-- this was instead of praising me because I did such a fantastic job. I was a great employee. Management was completely within their rights to search your electronic files.
The thing is, I'm almost 5 months pregnant and I'm going to go on pregnancy leave, no matter where I work at the end of October. Are they going to deny me unemployment insurance benefits? They fired me under their policy on workplace violence because of the language I used in that document, even though no one had ever seen it or was going to to apart from HR. I never actually threatened her or made one snide comment to her, she went looking for it. The State will make the decision but given the content of those files, I expect your employer can make a reasonable argument that you engaged in willful misconduct and thus that benefits should be denied.
I've been talking to attornies but no one will give me a yes or no, you have no leg to stand on. They just want charge me a consultation fee. One guy told me he wouldn't file my case but he didn't say why I expect that's because you don't have one. Even accepting that your boss was Statan personified, the employer didn't act illegally in any regard.
I'm not certain that she showed the entire thing to HR, it was, even though peppered with curse words and nasty comments, full of things she shouldn't have been doing. And it was only kept from 4/18 until 5/25. You're the subordinate, not the supervisor. Among other things, it's not up to you to monitor your supervisor's comings and goings.
I want 6 months salary and paid insurance bennies until my baby is born and I can go back to work. I feel like, yes, I had a lot of bad things to say about her but she and the organization I worked for failed me in dealing with the situation in our office properly and with any fairness at all. I really do want justice and this was not all my fault, not some maniac thing I was doing for no reason. I can see no reason why your employer would be willing to provide you with any salary or insurance benefits. Your boss may indeed be the worst boss in the world but you did not handle the sitaution at all appropriately. While your employer did not need "cause" to terminate you, you gave them an excellent reason to do so.
A person, who is nice to you, but rude to a waiter, is not a nice person. (This is very important. Pay attention. It never fails.)
