    Re: New Laws Target Workplace Bullying

    But from what you said earlier, you don't yell, so why would Mickey report you?
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    Just the facts man. You would never find out. As far as my ability to "handle it" in the department, that has to be the work load exclusively, not including your temper tantrums. If you would be a loud-mouthed belligerent bosshole, you would be the one filling your office box with a pink slip.

    Yeah ok, pal. If you tried that with me, your ass would be in the unemployment line faster than you could say "write-up". You just haven't run across a boss who maintains good relationships with the rest of the departments in your organization. Like here at my organization, I've shown two to the door already for trying to be divisive and undermining the authority of department heads...one mine and another from a different department. Mine tried to undermine another department head and I wouldn't even tolerate that so she had to go.

    See, here's the thing...I maintain myself with restraint at all times when it comes to my employees. I never yell at them, I never act out with them passive aggressively or in ugly ways. If they need time off, I give it freely. If they need extensions to their deadlines, it's done. I don't time their breaks, their lunches, or even check when they come in for the morning...even though with the badge system, I can. They're free to do their jobs and that's all I care about.

    But the second I catch wind of any of them making our team look bad, there's hell to pay. A good boss has ways to deal with insubordinate employees and great boss will excise a tumor like that from his department without remorse. If you can't be man enough to bring a grievance to me if you think I've slighted you, you aren't strong enough to work on a great team and you can sit at home on the dole. Call it your disability benefits or whatever you want because your lack of backbone certainly is just that: a disability.

    This is true.

    I just think the whole running bawling to HR thing is the most spineless, pussified way of dealing with conflict ever. I would at least give the courtesy of pointing out the bad behavior to someone before I went tattling because my wittle feewings got huwt.

    In agreement with you 100%. During my favorite stint in management, everybody knew where they stood with me, vice versa, and there was a bare minimum of unpleasantness.

    It also builds a stronger team when you have an open door policy like that.

    The boss that I tattled on for activity that was improper for the work place eventually got in the President of the companies face. He filled his box that afternoon.

    You make it sound like what I did was wrong, when what he did was wrong. I couldn't address him face to face with his nasty interpersonal communication lack of skills. Hell, it's likely that his write ups from me reporting to HR never even got read. It just made me feel a little better. The things that I reported him on weren't about things that he did to me, it was what I saw him doing to other people.

    You may be an all-star big boss that only hires competent managers. That's great!

    Everything I witnessed was not right. I'd do the same thing again, regardless of what you think about it.

    And I'd fire you again. Twice. And then take the rest of the team out to lunch, telling them that your former salary was footing the bill. You know, just to bring everyone together around a common point of humor.

    Re: New Laws Target Workplace Bullying

    What a stupid law. If someone's conduct is truly offensive and counter productive, then the boss has the authority to fire him. No need for the government to pass a law that prohibits "bullying" in the workplace. I smell new lawsuits and TV adds prompting people to sue because Stan cut you in line at the water fountain. The boss has the authority to run his business, and he can fire whoever he wants to.
