Recently left a management position - abruptly. Still feels like I should have more closure. What should I do ?
Went into work in am my manager blasts out in a rush says she rearranged my teams responsibilities for the day putting my top productive person to a menial task for an entry level - during a time of high call volume and need to catch up with many unhappy consumers needing call backs as well
I voiced my dislike and the direction corporate wants the team to be managed - she blew up in front of team and consumers - requested privacy and she was like why??? Went into private area during the conversation which she was yelling and acting off the wall - she lurched at me yelling then stomped off and out! In shock I chose to leave right then - shaking and shocked. NEver seen such behavior in a work place! I texted and left message for my Corp lead of the situation and texted my team at night I could not work under this type of behavior or management style and appreciated all they have done during my time there
After a period of trying to analyze wth happened the next day I texted manager and she said you quit I made plans already - thus ???
What would you suggest I should do. Never sent resignation to Corp HR. Sure she set the picture differently when explaining what happened
My nerves and stress level are now at normal level again after working some weeks 7 days non stop 9am to sometimes midnight!!!
Loss my comp time and never signed a contract for salary but changed to it at Mgr verbal request.
How should I put closure - never asked to do an exit interview or anything.
Hostile toxic work environment in ?
Salary left me working for less than min wage - working all these hours consistently.
Should I reach out to HR at all or chock it up to a bad experience and leave it alone. Btw this was not a career position - came out of retirement to help organize and create remote team prior to business opening for summer season. All fine then until we hit the ground at the worksite!

Once someone signs an offer letter, is it generally okay to give notice to your present employer?
(Basically, it's a contract, yes?)

Is it discrimination to let the oldest employee work all nights and weekends when a younger inexperienced person is taken into a position?
We did have fair scheduling until this person came into the group, she says she can not get a baby sitter. So another employee and myself have all the nights, except one. He gets a couple of days during the week, I sometimes get one on the weekend?

Searching the internet
I was looking through job postings that are in my field just to see what's out there and I'm finding an increasing number of employers requiring a master's degree and at least 5 years of experience with salaries in the 40k range...you have got to be kidding me.
This isn't so much about me but I find that offensive. A master's degree to be paid less than the national average in the US...got it. I'm also shocked because when I started in this field about 2 years ago in an entry-level position with a bachelor's degree that was the salary range with the requirements being a bachelor's degree in a related field and no experience with the specific job required but other general skills related to it. I feel I got extremely lucky but I'm also wondering if you can move up salary-wise in this field with experience alone.
The way the goalposts are constantly being moved is outrageous.

Presentation used by colleague without consent
My workplace is a small architectural firm with lesser than 30 staff.
Last year August, we had organised an internal sharing session on lessons learned from our projects. It was a very personal sharing for me as I shared about my first project (project A) since joining the firm and I had shared about lessons that were personal and impactful to me. My manager even commented on my presentation slides and rehearsed with me prior the session.
Today we organised another sharing session and we had been requested to share about reviews on our projects.
My colleague who worked with me on project A was assigned to present about her review on it. We had worked closely in other projects as well but it had not been a good experience over the past 3 years due to unfair workload distribution. After reflecting my thoughts to my manager, they will be reassigned to other projects next month onwards.
When we were assigned the presentation yesterday they asked for my presentation slides prepared for the last presentation in August (our presentation materials are always accessible in office server for reference) and I had provided to them. Somehow knowing thier intention, I had provided my slides to see what they would do. Obviously they failed to prove me wrong and used my slides for presentation today without changing anything. They did not even bother to change the date nor asked if they could use it.
Should I be flagging this to my manager? Although i had presented last year, I don't think my manager remembers as they need to oversee many things.
Appreciate your kind advice.

I know worker's compensation laws vary from state to state, but I have a general question for anyone involved in the HR portion of WC.
We currently have a few different employees out on WC. The office loudmouth is convinced the one claim is fake, and has made comments to this effect both in the office in full earshot of employees who are not this employee's supervisor or in any supervisor capacity whatsoever. She has also made these same statements in a private message to the employee's direct supervisor and me.
However, I sent a private message to her and another employee's direct supervisor outlining this employee's work restrictions and was immediately admonished by the office loudmouth for doing so using the private message. I have all of this very well documented. If any HR peoples can give me some direction on how you would handle this, I would appreciate it.

Need some advice
Working at company and I have been recommended for promotion. The last year's financial results were not good so even though all my superiors signed off on the promotion, HR won't.
There has been several new hires so I don't think it's about money. I have already assumed higher responsibilities of the new role but now my Director says we have to wait until two months from now to see if the promotion will be formalized. He also understands if I want to vacate my new responsibilities until then, but I told him I don't see how I could do that now and that I would continue working even though the promotion has not been conveyed in title or raise
Am I a fool for saying yes to this? Should I demand a reason for HR not signing off. Should I leave?
