I have been working in a research organization for the last three years and developed a few innovative methods for practical problems.
While I was busy delivering to customers, my manager asked one of his favorite new employees (she joined just 6 months ago and comes fresh from college) to write a research publication with her as first author and my manager as second author (they did not include my name in the research publication). That publication got accepted and published.
When I came to know about this, I complained but my manager says I am lying. I even contacted the director, but no help from him. Everyone on my team knows that I did that research but nobody is willing to say anything.
What shall I do?
P.S. I had meeting with director and manager on this issue, meeting ended with manager accusing me of n number of things(that are irrelevant to this issue and were never told to me). final conclusion from meeting - manager will judge who will be author and no one can question that. second thing I must trust manager if I want to work in this organization.
