I also think God may be teaching ME about humility. I need to honor my supervisor even when I think they're putting unfairness upon me. Such a posture would show trust that my Creator is able to take care of my situation. I wouldn't be relying on my own intellect or value, but on HIM.
[[Seven or eight months ago, maybe longer, I was told my comments offended people and could get me fired.]]
Tell your boss that THEIR comments offend you-
[[The response was basically “We all have heard you say things...” ]]
And your response to them is “So what? I’ve sat here and listened to your offensive nonsense over and over- What gives you the right to arbitrate what is offensive and what isn’t? You offend me!”
You will have to move on. If they’ve already been overt, then the knives have already been sharpened. Get that resume fixed up. Sorry to be a doom and gloomer ... but I’ve been there and done that.
You need to find another place to work, fast.
If you have family to feed then be careful what you say around liberals in the workplace
The workplace is FOR WORK. It used to be a golden rule- you never discussed religion or politics at work.
It is not your business.
You are an employee.
STFU at work.
[[One of the bosses (there were two) told me not to even talk about the weather or sports. Only work related words should be coming out of my mouth.]]
Ask that idiot “So if someone starts talking to me about ANYTHING that isn’t work related I can report them and you will discipline them, right?”
Sounds to me like you have a Hell of a discrimination lawsuit.
Get a lawyer BEFORE you get fired.
You might not have to work again after they fire you and they settle.
I will keep you in my prayers, FRiend.
I didn’t mean ‘idiot’ abotu your boss- i meant dictator-
HR departments are pretty weak against a good defense.
The Bible does say we are to obey those in authority, whether they be a boss or a government.
That having been said, I’d seriously consider getting another job. You’ve been explicitly notified that they are gunning for you.
I think your were told to stifle because all your friends at your work place are about to be humiliated. My suggestion is not to let them read into in by you wearing red. Instead, wait for him to be acquitted, then the next day bring in smiley face cookies......but instead of yellow, make them orange.
Employees don’t have a Constitutional right to free speech or freedom of expression ‘at work’... The Constitution’s right to free speech only applies when ‘the government’ is trying to restrict it. ... So ‘employers are generally free to restrict employee speech’.. at least while they are at work.
I’d say save it for “Happy Hour”.....;)
Get ready for an announcement of a newly established dress code where you work. No RED!
Prayers for your peace of mind.
You could wear one of these.
But, seriously, Ill keep you in prayer.
WRT the job...you’re already gone, you just don’t know it yet.
They are doing the paperwork now and you will be fired when it is the most difficult for you.
HR will NEVER put something in writing if they don't have a case for firing. Stating a political view is NOT a fire able offense if everyone else is free to state a political view.
They are going to fire you. It's only a matter of time. The leftists think you are irredeemable. They are going to look at everything you do and use it as justification to fire you. It doesn't make a difference if you ever say another word.
What could be fun is to ENTHUSIASTICALLY and over the top AGREE with those who make leftist supporting statement. For example if someone says "Donald Trump is a racist" you could say "He SURE is. He HATES BLACK people that's why he's put in policies that have made RECORD numbers of black people go out and get jobs. He WANTS to see black people work themselves like dogs. He's a darn racist."
You are being targeted.
Dont assume anything but u might want to start looking for a new job.
I was targeted back in 2002 for speaking out against H1b.
I was lucky to get out before the hammer fell
