Manager admitted they lied on a performance review
This is a question for a friend (it really is.) This person, who is a 20 year veteran of this organization, was denied a in-range progression raise for "budgetary and performance issues., neither of which are true. This person has worked above and beyond for years and is currently at the 45% of their pay range, which is terrible in it's right. The interesting part is when they asked their manager to put it in writing that they were being declined for budgetary and performance issues (review was all 6's out of 7 possible, not a derogatory mark on it), the manager declined. She said this is my telling you. He asked why he got 6's on his review if there performance issues he was unaware of? She admitted to him in person that she lied on his review, puffed it up but not why she did that, to then decline the raise. She also would not put that in writing. What would possess a manager to inflate a review, decline a raise and claim performance issues that are not documented, then admit to the deceit? Could this be a fireable offense? He is represented by a union, and it in a grievable issue (anytime you are declined a raise). This manager has caused a hostile work environment for this employee and those that work with him. I'm just curious about your thoughts on this. I'm trying to help guide them but don't want to waste their time. Thanks!
