I'm going to make this sweet and simple (otherwise, I'll have a breakdown).
1) I've been with (and layed off for 5 months) because of financial issues (it happens in small businesses) - started in 2015 with a spreadsheet of Clients and have since automated the entire organization - Then, end of 2016 - He had financial issues and had to lay me off - I stayed on 4 months and completed the installation of systems that would help him get back on his feet - When he did, mid 2018 - HE CALLED ME TO COME BACK!
2) During the time I was gone, let's just say, he had a baby with someone other than the one he was with for 9 years.
(Not my business, I know that and I support him no matter what, he's my boss).
3) His new girlfriend, not the baby's mother, started texting me. I have no issue with that, but I have majore boundries. Like "can you see if he's at "so and so" - Umm. NO!
4) He's borrowing money from her (what an idiot) and has been for quite some time - She's telling me this for what? I tell her she's an idiot. She's sweet, but her parents are loaded and I think I know where he's going with that....Again, not my business.
Now, here's my problem.
5) This is what's RIPPING ME APART!
He hired a woman that is very attractive (don't get me wrong, I can hold my own LOL!!! But we are of a different race). His 1st daughters monther is a beautiful African American woman, as is the 2nd - But the one he's with now, not at all. (I realize how high schoolish this sounds, but I'm not done).
Anyway, she has no skills. She's not held a job for more than 13 months which was "Contract" - No references. Skills include filing. Albeit, the best filing I've EVER seen! But who uses a calculator in Excel? And I quote "Accounting has nothing to do with financials" - As I continue to remain professional, to a T - I have installed every phone system, desktops, network, crm and all 3rd part apps that go along with it and logo design, WordPress, payroll etc...- You get the idea.
In 6 YEARS - I have worked NO LESS THAN 65+ HOURS a week! That is NO JOKE!
I got suspended for 4 days for the following.
1) I "caught wind" from someone (legit) that she is making 2.00 less than myself. (I'm great friends with payroll company owner - I didn't go searching). But he asked who my new boss was - I was like Huh?
2) There are 9 guys (men) that work there (construction), and each one has called me at LEAST 3 times each in the last month because the Mobile App is "screwing up" - She is ILLEGALLY DEDUCTING TIME FROM THEIR WEEKLY PAYROLL) - Also, I've been trying for 5 years to get a Mobile App installed for a variety of reasons - But always no, not now blah blah - POOF - It's installed - I went to the office and noticed she'd taped "instructions" on the board on how to use it - Well, it was WRONG! I removed that ONE piece of paper, wrote "wrong" on it and said (on the paper) I would send her the correct way to do it.
I got a text message the following morning asking "How could I do such a thing?" = I thought he'd texted someone else....
Then I was suspended for 4 days???? 1st off, I'm SALARY!
Again, I reiterate - I put in EVERY system they touch there. I have paperwork showing the hours I've put in (both home, the office and holidays) FOR 6 YEARS - She doesn't know ANY OF THEM!
Then I get suspended???
OMG - Someone please tell me I'm being pranked!
I need to run as fast as I can...…..
Is there not a law against this?
