One teacher is actively trying to get another teacher fired. She’s gone to the principal, higher up, w/all sorts of unfounded complaints. Is there anything that can be done? Legally? HR? Union?

This really happens. I spent the first 4 years of my teaching career having this happen to me on a daily basis. I stuck it out for 7 years, and to this date, I don’t know why. I would go home and cry because I didn’t know what to do and no one could help me. I documented every single transaction I had with that teacher, every single day, and pretty much every single hour, by making a folder in my email, filtering emails with specific coding to be dropped off inside the folder, “just in case.” I had nearly 25 full pages worth of the co-worker I worked with and my interactions with her. I never had to use the evidence, but it came in handy during times when she would actively try to get me in trouble.

Yes contact the union. They will document as well.

Union would probably be a good idea. Can you give more details about what the conflict is?

Has she approached admin with what’s happening? Is there anyone who can vouch for her that might be believed? Her union might be able to help with mediation if nothing else.

I’m in a similar situation only I’m the one trying to help a TA understand that her unhappiness is having negative effects on students. She is constantly rude to students and doesn’t do her job effectively. There are times I see great joy on her face and I’m trying to help her understand when she has great joy and what makes that happen so she can pursue that path instead of the one she is on. I have spoken directly to her in several occasions with no improvement. Maybe the person you speak of would be happier and treated more fairly elsewhere.

Recently laid off from KPMG audit after 3 years. I’m on an H1B so odds are tough. If anyone could help me with a referral to a transaction services/restructuring role at another services firm or middle market bank, would be grateful. I know it’s a long shot but thought it’s worth posting.

I was laid off from a resource management role, working with employees approaching or on the bench, working with managers to staff projects, and support functions like report creation, scheduling, etc. Roles like this are few and many large consulting firms have frozen internal hiring. Do you think it would be beneficial to get a SHRM cert? Would that help get a "talent related" HR role? Worth the money? I have a background in recruitment as well.
