  • Help in WV

    I am a sales manager for a company in WV (with 4 employees), their corporate office is in Texas. I started here in March as a sales rep and was promoted to sales manager in June. A girl that was working here for months before I was, became angry I was promoted and not her. So in the next few months she would do nothing but the bare minimum to keep her job, and would do nothing I asked her to do. My district manager would not do anything about the problem, she could basiclly do as she pleased. I contacted my regional manager and he did't really do anything about it either. She went on maturnity leave and is now back. During that time period we hiried to sales rep that are great and follow all company policies. We had a store meeting and I said basiclly I would not put up with this anymore and didn't really want her back. So of her friend were being nosey and listened in and told her. Now she says we are under investigation for what I don't know. I was told by my DM to counsel her on new policies and have her sign an incident report show I counseled her and she refused, for some reason she has become drinking buddies with our head HR person, and she makes all these threat to I am being watched and investigated and I haven't heard nothing from my HR dept. DO THEY HAVE TO NOTIFY OF THIS? She also tells my other reps I am mad because I asked her out and she said no (never asked her), I had a girlfriend at the time, and never even looked at her in a way that I showed an interest. I can't do my job properly and I am expected to be on pins and needles for her, she is negitive and has an attitude toward me. CAN I FILE DISCRIMINATION SUIT AGAINST HER FOR DOING NOTHING SINCE I GOT PROMOTED AND SHE DIDN'T, OR SEXUAL HARRESMENT FOR SAYING I ASKED HER THIS STUFF(and didn't). I don't know if any of this is true or not, if she is lying can I take action on that? She also stated the she used to check my manager email cause my DM gave her the password. IS IS THIS ALLOWED? Can somebody please give me some incite on what to do I am a great asset to my company and shes not, and this could end my career and I did nothing wrong.

    DO THEY HAVE TO NOTIFY OF THIS? No. They have no legal obligation to notify you of what action they take.

    CAN I FILE DISCRIMINATION SUIT AGAINST HER FOR DOING NOTHING SINCE I GOT PROMOTED AND SHE DIDN'T, OR SEXUAL HARRESMENT FOR SAYING I ASKED HER THIS STUFF(and didn't)
    No. What you describe does not meet the legal definition of either discrimination or sexual harassment.

    if she is lying can I take action on that? That depends on whether or not you can prove she lied (as opposed to being mistaken or jumping to incorrect conclusions) and what damages you are able to show.

    IS IS THIS ALLOWED? That's a matter of company policy, not law.

    I understand why you're annoyed at this situation but you haven't indicated how you are being harmed by this, and nothing you have posted gives you any legal recourse.
    The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA says otherwise. If it does, then the terms of the contract or CBA apply.

      BTW, I have deleted your duplicate posts. The same people respond to all the employment law forums; you will not get more or different responses by posting multiple times. Please limit your question to one forum rather than posting the same question several times.
