My boss called me to tell me they were firing the bully. She asked me if I would be willing to return to my position if they offered me a 8% (approx $1.50) pay raise. I worry that it will be awkward. Should I stick to my decision about quitting?
Sounds to me like management solved the problem by firing the employee, and admitted the problem to you by stating that and offering your job back in the same conversation.
So I'll echo the above answers/comments with a 'Why not?' Keep in mind that experts here only have about two sentences to base this answer on, so we're missing a lot of context that hasn't been stated yet.
If it matters you can request a letter be added to your HR file saying that your first voluntary termination was due to a workplace bully which management later resolved.
That depends on a number of things.
- Is this job better than the one you have now, do you even have a job now.
- Did they dismiss your earlier concerns or did you not raise the concerns and just quit.
- Have they addressed any other reasons you left.
- Will leaving your current job, assuming you have one, affect the possibility you might leave again.
