How would you feel, after checking in with your boss, which I do weekly to make sure my department is running smoothly, your boss told you they were bringing someone in to "consult" in the running of my lab. I know if I hadn't have called, they wouldn't have told me. My techs called me today as they brought this "consultant" around and introduced her. Would you feel blindsided that they chose to do this while I'm out on extended sick leave? Would you feel you job is in jeapordy (even thought they asuure me it's not)? Supposedly this person is there to help with administrative things, the things that I take care of. How's she supposed to know what to do if I'm not there to show her. I can't help but think something's afoot and I've now worried myself sick, literally. Also, I'm wondering if I have recourse legally for them doing this.
I do know the reputation of this person, and its not a good one. I feel for my techs because I know she's going to swoop in there and try to change policies and procedures, all with the blessing from my boss and without in in put from me. This whole situation has made me emotional, depressed and weak. I really don't know what to do.
One of the other supervisors did go in and tell our boss that she felt they were doing me wrong and what kind of impact this is having on my recovery...depression and fear certainly don't help when one is trying to get well as quickly as possible.
So, there we have it...any thoughts? Feel free to call my boss bad names if so inclined...lol...I'm kiding on that one. My immediate boss in only doing what the director of the lab has requested. The director and I have never been on good terms, that's why he's looking for a "back door" to quietly usher me through. *sigh*
