She requested sick leave months before her surgery was due but her supervisor denied it and asked her to reschedule the surgery.
The level that an employer can go to in order to control their employees is sometimes "sickening." Often, employees are left speechless at their ridiculous behavior and have to pull up even more savagely ridiculous stunts to give them a taste of their own medicine. That's what u/Yeayeayea8989 did when her employer denied her leave. The user requested a leave for surgery, scheduled for September, and was denied as another employee, that too from a different team, was on vacation at the same time. It got worse and the woman explained how in her post.
She then went on to say that she was resigning from her job due to her supervisor's toxic behavior. She then shared an incident where her supervisor denied her two sick leaves when she had 20 days of leave left. Further, she explained the bizarre reason why her leave was denied. She said, "I told her about the surgery in May, but the surgery was scheduled for September. The reason was that someone from another department requested a vacation for that week, but that person has nothing to do with my department or my duties."
That was not all; her supervisor asked her to reschedule the surgery simply because another employee was on leave. "Excuse me! I had to have a polyp removed from my uterus that caused my miscarriage," said the user. However, it didn't seem to affect her supervisor one bit. She explained her previous toxic encounters with her supervisor in her updates. In one update, she said, "While I was having a miscarriage at work, I needed to have bloodwork the next day to confirm. I start my work day at 9 a.m. I went to Labcorp at 8 a.m. My supervisor was blowing up my phone, telling me 'please don't be late,' 'am I done yet?' All this while I was miscarrying." All her posts pointed to the careless and unconcerned nature of her supervisor.
In her next update, the user said, "After I had my polyp removal surgery, while I was in the PACU (post-anesthesia care unit), she was blowing up my phone to let me know that there were some things that needed to be typed that she will place them on my desk upon my return; didn't even ask how I felt." It was more than enough reason for her as an employee to leave the job.
She later mentioned that she had conceived and said, "I'm resigning this week. Meanwhile, two other people resigned while I was on maternity leave and now I'm leaving. Now, she will be the only person in this department." It brought her to share one last update about her inhumane supervisor even when she was pregnant. She said, "When I was pregnant, she wanted a note for all my medical appointments. One time, she tried to deny me an appointment for my NT scan at 12 weeks."
So, the employee gave her a savage comeback. "I said well, I don't care. I'm going to my appointment. She called HR on me and I told them, 'I'm going, and I went.'" Several people in the comment section cheered her for standing up for herself and getting out of the toxic workplace. u/cosmic_dillpickle said, "And with the supervisor's number blocked on the phone. No one should be blowing up that phone!" u/HotRotHomebody said, "I would publicly out her and that company. Inhumane treatment."
