Bullied I/T Coordinator
I am the I/T (Computer) Coordinator at my work. My former boss retired leaving me the only strictly computer employee at my office. The company execs, who became my supervisors, we very computer illiterate. Since, they were unable to "boss" me, they assigned me four bosses, with much less computer skill than I. All this was done without my knowledge. These "bosses" quickly became very hateful towards me and began to lie and mis-represent about me to the top bosses. To make matters worse, this company is gradually going out of business, so they have been slowly laying people off. So everyone is fearful of losing their jobs. Therefore, people trying to get other people fired is a reality.
There have been numerous episodes that have occurred, that I was wrongfully made the villain. At the same time, because of this, I began to develop a very bad work record, all based on the lies and misrepresentations that I have mentioned. Therefore, it has become very difficult for me to find another job. Not to mention that most of the things I do, it would be difficult to find someone else to do. I have been up for job after job, in which my employer gave me a bad reference and I did not get. So I am stuck in my situation.
This is a very stressful situation for me and has gone on for years. I have reached the point that I am angry all the time and it has severely affected my family and friendship. Likely, I cannot sue, because my work has more money to fight me than I do them and they can get people, who fear for their jobs to testify for them. Also, I have been turned down by several lawyers. They are ruining me! Every other attempt I have made has backfired miserably.
I do not want to give my name or address because if my employers find out about this somehow they will undoubtedly retaliate against me, as they have in the past.
Somebody please help me!!
