What to do if You Think You're Being Treated Unfairly By a Boss

Boss Treatment Hr Human Resources Small

In the workplace, as indeed in life, there are a number of situations that have both an ‘in theory’ and an ‘in practice’ answer.

If you feel that your boss is treating you unfairly, this is one such situation. You will be able to find all sorts of employment law advice, but what we are looking to provide in this article is the real life solution.

It may sound wrong to suggest that the ‘official’ employment law advice is not applicable, because it is a good idea to understand your rights in the workplace. However, let us look at the ways in which you can either solve or minimise the problem before you go through official means.

If you work for a large company with strict human resources practices and a respect for operating under the exact rules of employment law, you may find that you are able to go through the official channels. However, if you work for a smaller organisation, while you may be legally entitled to make a complaint or ask for a review of the situation, in practice this may just make it difficult to stay in your job.

Large Company

Larger organisations tend to have the resources to be able to respond to human resources issues in a more regulated manner. Not only this, but it is expected that you follow these regulations and so your complaint or concerns are given the treatment they require.

You will be expected to speak to your HR manager in an honest and open way, allowing you to explain how and why you feel as though your boss is treating you unfairly. Your HR manager will then deal with the situation, perhaps with a senior manager and it will be closely monitored.

If you do not feel your personal situation is problematic enough to involve your HR department but you require some changes to the behaviour of your boss and their treatment of you, you could arrange a less formal meeting. Be clear about why you feel your boss is treating you unfairly – it can be easy to look for someone else’s behaviour in a situation when perhaps we should modify our own.

Once you are able to define and illustrate, with clear examples, why you feel as you do, ask to have a chat with your boss. You may ask a trusted colleague to be present, although this makes the chat less informal and more of a meeting. Explain to your boss how you feel, say how it is affecting your work and your confidence. Detail what you would like to change, within reason, and ask for their views.

Smaller Company

In a smaller operation there is unlikely to be the same infrastructure available, so complaints and criticisms rarely have a third party mediator, such as an HR manager.

In order to deal with your situation effectively and without making your difficulty with your boss more of a problem than it needs to be, you should be very clear about why you feel they are treating you unfairly. Think about your job and how well you have been performing before you say anything. It may be that you can see how you can modify your own behaviour before speaking to your boss.

If the problem is more serious than you feel able to cope with, it is important that you do bring the matter to your boss’s attention.

I have been working with a company as a caregiver for 10 years. For the last 5 years. I had couple that i was yo take care of. The lady was the actual client, but also did things for the husband. Well about 2 years ago, the husband retired, and they had their son move in with them. We cooked, cleaned,did everything for them. A big 4 bedroom 3 and a half bath, home. Cooking 3 meals a day, for all 3, cleaning for all 3, washing clothes and ironing,grocery shopping, for all 3. And a whole lot more. We would write notes saying everything we do, so they new all we did. That includes taken my client to dr,appointments,hair appointments, family envents. I even have to cook hole thanksgiving and Christmas dinner, for their hole family.recently the ithe care giver was fired,and now the new cargivers, don't want to do all the work. So now they are changing things. Where we don't have to do as much. But the allowed it for so long, I didn't get paid any more, barely maken medium wedge.Feel taken advantage of. Any suggestions?

sorry further to add, the rest of the 2 teams are on rotating shift and my manager did say that its only in his team he has got high number of fixed shifts.
Stressed - 21-Jul-17 @ 1:41 AM
Hi there, our workplace is going into rotating shift starting next month. This is split into 3 teams. Fixed shifts are given to mother's with daycare children and mother with a 13yr old kid. Upon looking on my team, there's only 3 of us on rotating shift while the rest given legit reason are on fixed shift (2 with daycare kids, 1 with 13yr kid, 1 coz of transport, and 2 guys not sure how). when i approached my manager requesting for a fixed shift based on medical grounds, he said I don't have a kid.Hence, I get rostered every 3 weeks and on this 3 weeks i get to work 2 weeks on late shifts, which i feel not fair, as I advised my manager that i am undergoing treatment to be a mother (but i was told I still dont have one). and I cant go through the stress, besides I do have a life outside of work and its unfair if I have to do late shifts just so that the mothers are covered. pls. advise can this be unfair treatment?

I have worked in the same role, same company for the last 12 years. The company is making now a restructure in my department and plan to merge 2 groups. Despite of that I will keep doing exactly the same work.They also want to increase our salaries. However as I got pay rises in this last years, my salary will increase less than the new guys on board. I told my boss tgat was unfair they are erasing my lenght of service. They say it is a new job. but I will not need to sign a new contract. Is this legal?

Our Response:
If you're doing exactly the same work on the same pay (or more) then your existing contract should will still apply...your length of service as an employee will therefore still be relevant for anything like pensions, employee rights etc.

My partner gets paid the same as other colleagues in the department but he is expected to do more. This includes working in areas he is not trained in, and they have received the training. However as they dont feel confident doing the role he keeps being expected to. Whilst he could ask for further training, what he is being asked to do is above and beyond his role. They also do less than him on a daily basis and are kept in the same department, whilst he is moved around, so for example expected to cover their role when off but they never cover his. It is all done in his work day so not working more hours but it feels like he is being put in a vulnerable position covering several jobs but they are not. I have checked under discrimination, which I do not think this is? but thought maybe employment law ?

i have worked for 11 years at the same company. It was taken over a few years ago and then a restructure of my department last year. I was told in the restructure that I was being promoted and along with my current role I would now manage a team and take on other duties. I accepted this and even upped my working hours. since signing a very generic job description I have learned that whilst my title has changed my level of management hasn't. They have also changed my duties twice and have taken away all my existing clients to give to another member of staff leaving me with only administrative duties and no management of clients. I have expressed my concerns, and I feel completely pushed out of my role. I feel that I have no option but to leave as they have taken all that I was skilled and good at and removed it leaving me with only new duties that I have no experience in and duties that I never expressed I wanted. My job is now being done by a higher management member of staff who is paid twice as much as me. Do they have the right to make my job so worthless that I feel no choice but to resign and do they have the right to take my job and give it to someone else? when I complained I was told I could look elsewhere for a job if I was so unhappy.
pushedout - 2-Jun-17 @ 8:25 AM
I work for a big six energy supplier and last February 2016 the business announced that they were closing the business unit which I worked for down so naturally I applied internally for other roles in an attempt to be redeployed. I was successful in two interviews and went with a role in fitting smart meters. I started the training last May and qualified in September 2016. After qualifying there is a support and mentoring stage usually lasting 8 to 10 weeks. However, as I was moving from one area of the business to another this apparently caused huge migration issues with getting me up and running so I was unable to progress so was assisting a colleague for 33 weeks after having qualified purely because of the incompetency of the company I work for. Other issues I've faced include not being paid at all in Jan 2016, stress to the point I've been signed off work. I got so down I felt the only way that someone would listen would be if I emailed the MD who realised to this email and within 2 days my tablet was fixed. Much to the anger of my senior manger who called me up and was very rude to me. I told him I was very upset and stressed and would be looking to leaving the business to which he replied he "would not get on his knees and beg me to stay". It soon came out he phoned me up as he was ordered to phone me by someone for head office. I've been offered a new job out of this company and now looking to take legal action

Diva - Your Question:
I haven't been with my company very long, but was recently promoted to assistant manager. Before the promotion I was a full-time shift supervisor all shift runners a required to work at least 2 closing shifts a week and 1 weekend a month. One of my coworkers a part time shift supervisor with the same requirements. However she refused to work nights or weekends, and my boss who is always talking about "balanced scheduling and being fair to everyone" let her have her way! Since she refuses to work the shifts that she is REQUIRED to work my boss makes me do them! I close 5 nights a week 3 weekdays and Saturday and Sunday! I have a child at home, and I'm the only one of us 3 with a child! This has been going on for the past 7 months and even though I'm the assistant now and I was promised more morning shifts I'm still not getting them. And my sons birthday party is on a Saturday and his birthday is on a Tuesday (my boss doesn't work Tuesdays) I would need both nights off and my boss is letting the other shift supervisor decide if I get those days off!! (Because one is one a weekend and the other at night both of which she refuses to work even though she refuses and gets away with it.

Our Response:
Write and make a formal complaint to your employer. Say that you have tried to discuss it with your manager but have had no success. If the job role requires that employees work at least 2 closing shifts plus one weekend, then that should apply to all those in the same role. If you feel you are being treated unfairly or discriminated against in any way, your employer should be able to deal with it.

All the mnorities even ones who fall short of production requirements have received raises. I'm double the requirement and believe this is unfair, very close to quitting.

My wife has been working in sales for the past 4 years at a music store. She does have a history of being late but always calls in to let them know. She does everything by the books.. yet her emoloyer seems to be singling her out. Not inviting her to company luncheons. Calling her out infront of other employees. Always blamed for minor things.Not being invited for company luncheons so on and so forth. Well today she was suspended for using the computerto download her resume. Now we know she shouldnt be doing that, but she was downloading it to apply for a job openning there in the same building. Same business.She has many other employees who do no call no shows, use the computer for far worse things,they come drunk or hung over. The list goes on. Yet no one seems to be getting in any trouble but her. Shes tried telling her bosses but they just get mad and dont care nore do anything about it. She feels like she will be fired when she goes back to work 5 days from now. What can we do?

I have worked for a global company for over a year now. When i started i was working on 2 vessels on there engines. Look i am not a racist ,when another guy( white) came in the company he was immediatly send for training for engines with the guys i worked with and in many cases they tend to give him more project and they tell me that the work has slowed down so will send me but i must just wait but not long they send him with an engineer. Our boss dont care about us like he always say we are a team but treat us different then the engineers like for instance he told them to go home if there is no work but tell us to use our leave days to stay at home we are mechanics but like he say there is no work but what about us who also have personal problems to sort out.

I work at a large restaurant chain for the past 10 years. I have over the years come across a few managers that like to intimidate or bully me. When I applied for this job the positions I applied for had already been filled. I got to do the same job only at nights. After 8 years the day shift positions came open. My store manager told me It was mine even though another lady had told her she wanted it. My boss said that would not be right. Well were 2 years in now & I have a new boss that makes my schedule for the past 5 weeks it has been wrong. I have spoken with her twice, she said one the 1st convo that all she was doing was coping and pasting. One the 2nd covo we were discussing a day I had requested of & I wanted to know if instead of working the closing shift 10-4 could I work the back-up (helper) shift 10-2 so as to not loose hours and my surgery was not til 3. She explained that she could not but me in this position as it would not be fair to take away the girl that usually works as my helpers shift. Ok Enter a server who decided she no longer want to serve so she was given my closing shifts and I go the back-up shifts. I am having a sit down Monday with the store manager and the new manager. Over the 10 years this has happened before. Including being shoved by my store manager which has been documented. Having my schedule altered as punishment for leaving early. I was told it was because I did not ask him if I could leave. He was off this day & the manager on the floor said it was fine. I truly fill I am being pushed out for the younger. The girl that got my shifts has not even done the job in over a year. She was only phone support but never trained to do the full positions. Is there someone to call in Chattanooga? Thank you

My partner is being treated unfairly at work.He is a general manager of a pub.He works for a small pub company with 3 owners and an area manager. He has excelled in all previous jobs including in other pubs for this same company.He works so hard, well over 50 hours in the work place and probably amounts to about 60-70 hours with what he does at home.He has always put everything into his job.His new pub is not doing very well despite his best efforts.There are just too many fundamental things wrong.The food is dreadful.He has told them this and they refuse to listen.Their marketing is terrible and their ideas are too confused.He has no control over these issues as the owners are stubborn and very much involved.There is not even a website for the business after being open for 6 months.They wonder why they are not as busy as other pubs in the area?! They don't seem to know what they want as a group and trying to please them all is impossible. Now they have begun taking it all out on my partner.Horrible emails and text messages. Trying to catch him out by giving him impossible tasks. Changing his shifts all the time.Not letting him do the rota for his own staff.Making him work both weekend days and nights every week (not necessary as he has an assistant).We live above the pub and now they have moved a random person in with us.I feel like they are trying to push him out.He has approached them and asked if they have a problem and they have said no.The operations manager has been extremely rude and unreasonable so my partner talked to the owners about it.Now everything is much worse with all of them.They refused his holiday after leaving the request hanging for weeks.They even refused to let him have a day off for my birthday! I have never seen him so depressed and I worry what he'll do.I can't bear to see him like this.I honestly don't know what he can do to make things better.They don't listen to any suggestions on how to improve the business and it will fail at this rate.It is obvious for anyone to see what they're doing wrong but they refuse to listen and have instead launched a hate campaign on my boyfriend! Help!

I work for a large corporation. My boss is treating me unfairly. I order office supplies for everyone at work. I am in this small cubicle and recently have asked my boss for a bigger vacant cubicle close to me. I explained to her I get all size of boxes delivered to me and I do not have the room for all of the boxes and have tripped over them a few times and almost fell making it a safety issue. My co worker asked for another cubicle and easily got it, which is a different cubicle than what I am asking for. It is difficult to get an approval for anything from her. She treats me differently than my other co workers. Pls., I need some advise.

Concerned- Your Question:
Hi, my partner and I have been together for almost 17 months now. Around March-April this year he obtained a job in IT at a school doing s traineeship. Through out this entire time, he has come home telling me how his boss is rather hard on him. He gives him an extreme work load, and treats him poorly. He (his boss) gets mad at him for the smallest things, and seems to take his bad moods out on my partner and other staff quite frequently. He has just recieved a final warning for something that seems rather petty and small to me, and something that doesn't seem as if he deserves a warning over. He has tried to explain to his HR manager what happened but she wont listen. The warning was over him trusting other people to do something they didn't end up doing. I dont know how his performance is exactly, but I know he works very hard and is becoming quite stressed, depressed and down in the dumps over what is happening. This is a frequent occurence and I'm quite worried that he is being treated extremely unfairly, but he won't go to anyone or do anything about it. I don't know what to do or what his rights are, but I know he shouldn't be treated like a slave, and made to feel like crap because he can't get everything done with a click of his fingers. I know he is a very hard worker, and he gets along with all of his co workers excellently. I just wish I could do something because he doesn't deserve this. Any advice?

Our Response:
HR should be doing more to help. He could try making a formal complaint which would have to be investigated. Is there another manager that your partner could speak to? Would other co-workers back a complaint up? Take a look at our section on Bullying at work, where you'll find lots more useful information.

My production depends on the order fillers I cut open boxes and whatever the order filler scan and put into break that boxes determines my production. There is supposed to be an eight week progression in order for me to reach full production.I was told in my second week that I needed to speed up when I was actually making production full production .I was told that that in the hour and a half that I've been cutting freight I had only done 369 boxes she let me know I needed to speeded up after our conversation which only lasted about five minutes I went to the computer and looked at the numbers the production dates were wrong in the computer so I corrected them the total was 679 a difference of 310 boxes .I printed it out before first break I told my manager about theerror in the totals she said I was off by 40 boxes and she was rude and told me I needed to go back in because in boxes .I talked to the ops manager I was told it was an integrity issue I just want to situation corrected but I'll kinds of stuff little stuff is been going on since.I want to be moved I don't have any trust in the manager now I've been told by other associates that this managers not a nice person and she'll stab you in the back and so on and I'm at the point now where I'm wondering do I need a lawyer

Situation at work with my manager not doing her job correctly concerning healthand safety with food. The stress of it got to me and not being given the right amount of staff to be able to do my job properly. I rang HR and area manager came in he turned all around on me saying I want managers job. He told me he had gone through temperature book and just saw things were missing on the day I ran the shop nothing major just a time that I finished a task. After he'd gone there were so many important things that had been missed by manager but were dismissed. The situation is making me ill!!

Hi My problem is that I'm working on a project which is managed by a partnership of 4 organisations, including my own; the project is led by one of the other partners.Recently there was a meeting called by the lead partner and my boss attended.The meeting turned out to be about me, with the lead partner complaining that I was not devoting the allocated number of hours to the project.This is correct, but it's because the lead partner made some of my role redundant due to poor project management.My question is this, was it fair for the lead partner to have a meeting about my working practices in front of all partners, where I was not invited to give my side of the story?I feel I have been badly treated and my professionalism undermined. It's true there is a problem which needs sorted and I'm prepared to work with the partners to find a solution, but the way it has been done I feel is wrong. Am I over-reacting?

So it wasn't until this last time that the other medication aide made a mistake by giving a resident a wrong dose In medication that she punished both of us for. She stated that we both need to take the medication aid class over and out hours are being reduced because she thinks 12 hours may be more. When we are in meetings it seems as if I'm the only one getting letters when both of us medication aides are in there. So this last time they wanted me to sign w paper stating that I should take the whole class over and if I make a mistake after that I would be fired. I didn't agree because we are required to take refresher courses every year which are only 6 hours. As imposed to the whole course again which is 68 hours. I said that I would take the refresher course which we are required. It's just a lot of funky stuff going on that I definitely don't feel right about. They will put both of us med techs in meetings which I only receive disciplinary action lettters and the other one don't. When I pointed that out she states she gave her one before we all meet so then I ask myself well if you already met with her and gave her a letter too then why Is she sitting in the meeting with me ? I feel like if you have a meeting with both then we should both receive the disciplinary action at the same time. I feel like overall I am a good employee a team player who stays positive towards Both my coworkers and residents. I am to the point where I've been doing extensive job searching and I told her only to find out she doesn't give me a good reference. I did have one opportunity to leave there full time and go somewhere else for about 2 months but the hours were not good for me. I stayed at the first job only for PRN but they eventually called me back to work there fulltime. And only to find out I come back to being treated unfairly even more. I deal with her son who also works there who seems to clearly have issues because he harasses me on a daily bases. I have records that date back to march on this harassment which is clearly a different scenario. Despite all I put up with I still complete my woRk effectively but now I am at my wits end. I just don't know whether both of these issues should be reported or should I move on silently. I feel that everyone has a voice and it should be heard. Not only do I make sure I show up to work, I also pick up another employee to make sure she makes it to work. But with my hours being reduced to my evaluation being a complete dissappointment I know where I stand and I feel like something needs to be done about it. She clearly doesn't have respect for her employees only a select few where you can see favorism.
