What should I do? My employer is trying to force me to quit now.?
About 2 weeks ago my supervisor and I got into a heated conversation over a policy and procedure that was not clear to several people in my department. He got very upset and began to yell at me. I immediately contacted his supervisor and explained the entire situation to her. She in turn explained to me that I was wrong about my interpretation of the policy but that no one deserves to be yelled at and that she would be handling the situation. During the conversation I explained to her that If we can not come to a common ground on proper communication then I would not be able to move forward with the company. I need to protect myself. She explained she did not want this to happen and assured me that everything will be ok. The following week I had a telephone conference with my supervisor, his supervisor and HR. Again I explained my story and HR asked me if I had decided to quit or not. I told HR that I wanted to stay as long as we all could respect one another. HR followed up with me 2 days later to make sure that I was ok and to see if there was anything I wanted to add to the situation before the closed the case. I explained to her that I completely understood my fault in the situation and that I am happy that we can all move forward from this. The next day my supervisor called and apologized to me for his behavior and asked me if I had made a final decision on quitting or staying. I told him that I definitely wanted to stay and that I was happy that we could move on from this situation. 2 days later I received a call from by supervisor's supervisor and she simply said, "Please forward your resignation to HR and also myself by the end of the day today". I said "ooh okay" and she hung up. I then sent and email to HR, my supervisor, his supervisor letting them all know once again that I decided to continue my employment and that i loved my staff and i hope for a successful partnership in the future. I received an email back stating that they had already began interviewing a replacement for my job and that they would need to find out if i could continue working there. I was shocked and upset. I never gave them a resignation notice. Later that day a few of my employees came to me asking questions because they saw that my job had been listed on indeed.com and careerbuilder. I am confused about what I should do next. I did express concerns about the work environment but I never told them that I was quitting. Is there anything that I can do?

Well, it looks like they're siding with your boss and getting rid of you. Whatever you do, don't resign. You won't be able to receive unemployment if you do. It sounds like that if you don't quit, they'll fire you, but at least you'll have a chance to get unemployment... More

It appears you made a mountain out of a mole hill and the Company feels this is a good time to replace you. Seems like alot of drama for such a minor problem and it looks like you were wrong.

Nope, early on when you were FIRST called in it was all over for you, and you should have known it then but this must be your first job, you're still green. At that time you should have started looking for another job, but you thought you could sway them. When two supervisors and personnel sit with an employee that... More
