My boss told me that one of her peers was "doing everything she possibly can...to have you excluded from your project."

Apparently this peer of my boss had requested months ago that i be removed from the project....but i don't know why. After my boss said no, her peer went above her head to her boss and asked for me to removed...and boss' boss also said no. She didn't even tell me about this until after i asked why intentional exclusion of a team member wouldn't be considered an HR violation.
Is it wrong of me to be mad that these members of senior leadership allowed this to happen without HR intervention?
I still don't know what the initial complaint was. For reference, i got my maximum raise abd highest performance evaluation score a few momths ago.

Grateful to finally have interviews but I've used up all my PTO time including medical and dental appointments to complete the early rounds, what else can I do?...I've been struggling at a job that I've longed to leave for few months due to a toxic work situation.
The company won't let me take a lunch break and when I block out times to at least take a short break and they fill them with "required" meetings causing me to miss appointments. It's been a negative situation since I started and I'm emotionally at my breaking point so I need one of these to work!
I couldn't just quit as I needed to find a job first and then bang...a few opportunities. I'm in later rounds for three companies but I'm struggling to find time to interview. So many rounds at all the companies that I've used up doctor, dentist, PTO etc. vacation days and I'm not sure what to do to continue in this process besides taking a chance and leaving my role to interview.
I feel strongly about the roles but since I'm at the stage with senior members before the holidays, they don't have flexibility with their schedules. I've tried a few rounds with before and after work but these later rounds seem to be less flexible when it's with larger groups. Two companies want the successful candidate to start at the beginning of January so I don't want to miss my chance but as much as I'm ready to leave I'm worried to roll the dice if I don't get one of the positions and not have a job.
Please know that I'm grateful for this problem but it's a tough one to manage! I'd appreciate your advice!

Why are there so many anonymous posters on here?
I am not talking about the people asking for advice, or making company-specific comments, but the people responding to the posts with general, non-personal, non-company specific comments.

Hey looking for some advice.
So i got laid off this past week....and I'm trying to figure out my plan going forward. Luckily i have some cushion to be flexible. My career has always been data in one form or another....moving it...reporting it. I have a BS in Computer Information Technology. As I have always been intested in healthcare....I am interested in working with EMRs, so Im investigating a second BS in Health Information Management hoping it can help get my foot in the door (have had no luck in tthe past). But at 53 I'm wondering if its worth it.

Struggling career pivoter
Has anyone changed careers from being a teacher to being in Human Resources and how long did it take to get a job? Also, how many HR roles did you apply to?

I’m at a job where I it’s become clear no matter what I do, I’m reprimanded.
I have followed job assignments and done extra work on projects only to be told it wasn’t necessary. I recently created a seven page report in order to deal with a crisis situation and it was literally tossed aside. I just got an email from HR today requesting a meeting regarding an out of town conference I recently attended. I met with my colleagues and students months before the conference and informed them I would be leaving a day early to attend a family wedding. We came up with a plan to manage the days.
Two of my colleagues managed the conference for the last day and flew home with the students. I wasn’t given sufficient funds for Ubers and the hotel and I had to make multiple phone calls to resolve the situation. I know that HR is going to bring up the fact that I left early.
Recently, I had two other colleagues decide that we weren’t going to celebrate a well known holiday at our school. I told them it was not a good idea and that parents would not agree. When the parents protested (as they should have) I was blamed for not telling the colleagues the parents had already put a lot of work into that holiday. They told the parents it was a misunderstanding on my part and the school would celebrate this holiday. I refused to take the blame.
I know my days here are numbered and I am looking for other work. I just need help on how to manage my emotions and act professionally until I leave.

I'm looking for some advice once again.
I fell at my last job in April. I left their employment in May. Just after leaving, I received a bill from one of the hospitals I went to after my fall. I sent the notice to the HR Director and she said emailed back that it was taken care of. Well, shame on me for not ensuring it was done. At the end of October, I received a letter from a debt collector for that bill. I immediately reached out to the HR Director. She said it was taken care of now and let her know if I get a bill. Well, I called the hospital and they did not hear from her. I've been going back and forth with her trying to get all the claim details since then. Continuously, she keeps pushing me back a day or two. Since this is a nonprofit, I reached out to the Board Director and haven't heard back. I don't think he checks the Board email too often, would it be unprofessional to reach out to him on LinkedIn to ask him to check the Board email? I know once he's involved it will be solved quickly. I just want this done ASAP and I'm not sure who outside the organization I can contact for help.
