A Retaliation Training Trigger
Training Triggers are short programs (1-2 minute meeting openers) with ideas to jump start conversations on critical workplace issues.
In Can This Be Retaliation?, a frustrated employee goes over her supervisor’s head with a complaint of unfair treatment. While Open Door Policy allows this, who is out of line, the employee or the supervisor?
“He said that proper organization was his responsibility, and if I didn’t like all these changes, I could just quit.” This vignette paves the way for trainers to draw students into exploration of what constitutes an adverse employment action and how to navigate such a potential minefield.
Is the supervisor taking out a grudge on the employee? Is the employee taking out a grudge against the supervisor? And what actions should a wise manager take to resolve the issue? This vignette can trigger of thought provoking and informative discussion.
