After 5 months in a 6 month probation period, I got a new boss. I feared that the new boss didn't like me and wanted to get rid of me. After 4 weeks under my new boss, I received a performance review with all "needs improvement" and none of the criticisms had anything to do with how I was performing.
My first boss wrote a letter to the new boss and copied it to the HR department. He gave me a glowing report and said that if he had been there to evaluate me, I would have been promoted to the next pay grade and title advancement. The new boss and HR determined that I should serve 6 more months probation.
Four weeks following the first review, I was given another performance evaluation that was rated "unsatisfactory" in all categories with the boss recommending that I not be hired permanently. They called it a Pre-Disciplinary Conference (PDC). I had the opportunity to comment on all of the negative evaluations at that time. I submitted proof that each of the offenses that I was accused of doing or not doing were false. At that review, I was given 91 days of unpaid suspension pending a further investigation.
Now, after nearly 4 weeks, I was sent a letter telling me that more charges are being thrown at me and the PDC would reconvene. I would like to answer each charge with a "no comment" and end this kangaroo court proceeding. Nothing I said the first time around changed their position and nothing I say to my benefit would matter at the one coming up.
Do you think that I should do that to lessen the drama? I know that this has been a witch hunt and that I never had a chance of surviving to work another day.
