Dear Mr. Oblivious VP of Ops,
As you know, on May 23, I resigned my position as Human Resources Specialist at <name removed to protect the guilty>, after working there for four and a half years. I am writing to you now to detail my reasons for leaving your employ, and share my concerns about the working atmosphere at your organization.
Since the arrival of Mr. Atrocious HR Manager in the position of Human Resources Manager, my job duties have been diminished to that of an administrative assistant, to the extent that Mr. Atrocious HR Manager has me performing all his administrative tasks such as faxing, typing letters, and retrieving his mail from his mailbox. Mr. Atrocious HR Manager has also insisted that I perform duties outside the scope of my position, such as: escorting a recently terminated and potentially volatile employee out of the facility; and on a separate occasion suggesting that I kick another associate’s ass.
In addition to the aforementioned issue, the conduct of the Plant Manager Mr. Highly Inappropriate has been increasingly intolerable over the past eight months. Mr. Highly Inappropriate subjects staff to degrading, racist and sexually suggestive comments on a daily basis.
Mr. Highly Inappropriate’s random tirades include yelling obscenities at staff, threatening individual’s jobs, and undermining manager’s authority.
Examples of his sexually harassing behaviour include: Mr. Highly Inappropriate requesting that I sit on his lap; draping himself across my desk while making sexually suggestive comments to me; and threatening to pull a female co-worker’s pubic hair.
Additionally, Mr. Highly Inappropriate has been observed by numerous individuals in Management meetings referring to Mr. Asian Quality Manager, as “Zinky-Doodle”, mocking the way that Mr. Asian Quality Manager speaks and demanding that he speak English.
These are just a few examples of the unacceptable and illegal management behaviour that has lead me to pursue alternative employment. I, like many other employees of <name removed to protect the guilty> who have confided in me, felt the need to keep quiet about this poisonous work environment out of necessity and fear for my job. However, now that I am no longer a <name removed to protect the guilty> employee, I felt bound to inform you of the poor management practices that occur at your facility, and request that you take action in order to avoid future legal implications.
**Yes, I really did send this.
