Shoot the [email protected] (Not literally of course)
Many years back I read a Michael Crichton novel. It started with a character with principals at work who avoided his lawyers advice on a problem at work, and ended up getting fired even though he was right, his boss acting illegally and all his next job interviews somehow had the story that he was a risk and a troublemaker on their desk next two his CV. Sounds very true to me. Those people who are in the right and take their firm to a tribunal, and win. Would any boss employ somebody who took their last one to court?
Sometimes you have two decisions to make. Leave, or stay and shut up. I'm now good friends with an ex-boss. At work, I annoyed him intensely, pointing out errors and making his decisions, often wrong, impossible to implement. What I forgot was that one of us owned the business. Now, we both see the others point of view - 30 yrs back we were always diametrically opposite on everything!
For people with autism, anywhere on the scale, both sides have to make adjustments, and often one or both are unwilling or unable. Nice autistic folk can be actually useful to a business if understood. Bloody minded ones a total PITA!
It is possible that both parties are on the spectrum.
Raise a grievance with her line manager.
Document all of the daft things she has had you do and the follow up meetings. Print off any evidence you have and document how much of your time you have wasted and how much of her time has bee wasted and ask that you be put under a different manager or at the very least she does not to your annual reviews etc.
I would be a bit annoyed if I found out I was paying a manager who thinks its ok to ask her team to email the publisher of a dictionary and then having a meeting about the wording of that email.
I agree. I would also respond to her with unnecessary requests and say that you do not feel that would be a best use of your time.
Also, keep a daily diary of everything that has happened and ensure you keep copies of everything offsite to back up any future grievance.
My post is the real world.
Is it ?
Sometimes you lot on here on here can off the chain !
I would argue that they are both on the same 'Speculum!'
