Boss declines pregnant employee's requests for accommodation a week before her due date, HR steps in and grants her leave immediately

It's often said that HR is never on your side, but is merely there to maintain an equilibrium that will prevent the organization from opening itself to vulnerability or liability. They are there to manage the “human” resources of the company, and—well, that's you . Still, in instances where you're dealing with someone in the organization—be it a boss, coworker, or other party—who is so incredibly off base with their actions or reasoning, then it just makes sense to go to HR and help them see yo…

Sometimes, you need to know when to quit and when to walk away. Sometimes, you should also learn to take advice the first time it's given to you… especially when you directly asked for it. This couple would do well to learn this and listen to the advice they received from Reddit's r/AmItheA**hole community this week. The pair made separate posts to the sub to see whether or not the wife was in the wrong for her comments to her husband's sister. Her sister-in-law offered her some advice about th…

'Well he didn't cheat on ME' : Selfish Daughter Denies Her Mother Empathy When Her Dad’s Cheating Gets Another Woman Pregnant, Leading To Family Drama and No Contact

One might think that when one of your parents gets cheated on by the other, resulting in a soon-to-be new brother or sister, you might not exactly be over the moon. At the very least, you might think that one would carry some empathy for the parent who was suffering, not the one who lied about their infidelity and then oops, got another woman pregnant. Sigh… I don't know if it's a generational thing, or if we were just as self-centered back in the day, but this is unacceptable behavior and says…

Employer Tells New Mother to Submit Her Resignation, She's Not Going Anywhere

A lot changed in 2020. We collectively learned as a society that many of our jobs could be done from the comfort of our homes. This meant no more commuting an hour in each direction, either inching forwards in rush hour traffic or wedged in next to a smelly dude on public transportation. All of our lives were better without that commute and the stuffy air of office politics, and it seemed that amidst great global panic, we had at least managed to take a step forward as a society.
