Outside calls and texts
I work for a government agency Monday through Friday. I’m dealing with an issue that I’ve already tried to resolve locally. I’m on intermittent FMLA and so I’m either out sick or dealing with appointments regularly. I have coworkers and management texting or calling me on my personal cell phone that I pay the bill on to ask questions or to give me directives when I’m not at the office during the week and also weekends when I’m not there. They’ve even gone as far to ask me to sign into my personal laptop to do something since I used to telework and have access to the system. I tried to resolve it locally but I was just told to say that I’m not working. But then it caused conflict since it’s management too. I’m already dealing with a lot of issues with this management team and I’m actively searching for another position so it takes care of by temptation to create a voicemail message regarding work matters. I’ve reached the point where I think it’s something that I need to elevate to HR. Problem is I’m a lead at work and on another complaint I elevated I was told by the regional manager I needed to work on resolving conflict. Has anyone been through this before? I’m an hourly employee and NONE of this is urgent enough to contact me outside of work. Tonight my supervisor called me to tell me my directive first thing in the morning is to complete a form. I’m just looking for ideas on how to stop this without making things even more unbearable than they are.
