I have worked for my current employer for almost 14 years, working from home. There was an incident a couple of years back where I was unable to work because the company-provided equipment was not working. I was on the phone or in the office with Tech Support every day for 4 days before the issue was resolved; however, my manager docked my vacation time by 16 of those hours even though I was working (either directly or indirectly while waiting for Tech Support). I had also tried to go work in the office for two of those days but was told by a lead that there were no desks or computers available. (She later lied to the manager and said she hadn't said that.)
I complained to HR about my hours being taken but nothing was done. When I attended a meeting with the CEO and he announced that he wanted to know if anyone was having problems, I emailed him to let him know what had happened. He pushed it off to his HR manager to investigate. So, when the HR manager called me, I told him what had happened and that the HR person hadn't done anything.
Now, I am being blocked from transferring out of the department. I have applied for MULTIPLE jobs for which I meet all required qualifications, but am being turned down before I even get an interview. I am sure I am being blocked by HR. Is there anything I can do?
As an additional fact, now our department is cutting workforce by 25%. I am pretty confident that they will put me on this list to get rid of me and I will have nowhere to go because they won't let me apply for other jobs.
Thank you for any help to can provide.
