It's shocking how little most of us know about the fundamental rules for workplace survival. Few people truly understand how to hang onto their jobs, how to effectively respond to threats to their jobs, or what to do if their main source of income is abruptly terminated. Considering how dependent almost all of us are on a steady source of income, coupled with how fragile jobs are in our current economy, it's shocking how little most of us know about the fundamental rules for workplace survival.
I'm familiar with these knowledge gaps firsthand, because I've helped more than 18,000 panic-stricken clients deal with work-related issues. I've handled such emotionally charged workplace situations as:
• Bosses who swear, threaten, and even hit their employees.
• Foremen who order their staffers to operate under dangerous work conditions.
• Supervisors who sexually harass employees.
• Managers who punish workers for having children.
• Managers who won't give a worker time off to care for a dying parent.
• Executives who irrationally dislike certain staffers, and try to harass them into quitting.
• Companies that try to force out employees because of gender, race, or age.
• Bosses who risk destroying a company, with their out-of-control drug use or gambling.
BEAT THE BOSS are easy-to-read, entertaining short stories which take a minute or two to read, but also provide accurate solutions, pulling back the curtain as to what really happens in the workplace.
Every story ends with a question for the reader to answer:
• Did Allison just quit-or was she fired?
• Should Lori have gone straight to HR to complain about the sexual harassment?
• Can Jim be fired for trying to take home the chicken that fell on the floor, which his store considers garbage?
• When Bruce discovers the company that hired him lied about working conditions on his first day on the job, should he write a resignation letter or just walk away?
Furthermore, with millions of Americans unemployed both now and in the foreseeable future, it's never been more important for everyone to educate themselves about how to hang onto their jobs, and about how to protect themselves if they're fired or forced to quit through no fault of their own.
