I just did what?? Updated with picture of the email Login/Join 
Member
posted
My wife texted me today as I was off work for Veterans Day programs at my kid's two schools.
Message was "look at the picture! Did you do this?"
It was a resignation email to my boss.
I immediately called my boss to tell her it wasn't me that did that. I also contacted the director of pharmacy and the security chief of MIS.


Seems a coworker got into my work email account and sent a resignation statement to my boss and copied my wife on it. Auto log off did not work.
I am beyond pissed.
Coworker said she was "just kidding. Sorry if it upset you. Thought you would know it was me".
She also changed my email signature to some less than professional comments.
This is a pharmacist. The techs told her it was a bad idea but she did it anyway.
Physical violence is frowned upon at work.

What was the resolution between you and your employer and her and the employer?

I'd be livid. Enough that I'd also go out of my way to get at minimum serious disciplinary action taken. This goes well past "just a joke" territory.

This happened at my work all the time. Someone would leave their access card in their computer and leave...another would send an email from their machine to the boss. Fortunately I was the boss and all learned proper procedure!


Thanks,

WTF. I can see pranks but you don't involve upper level in your pranks. Hopefully, you've got a clean history with regards to these kinds of pranks or there'll be a shit storm.

Actions such as that where I work would result in immediate discipline, to include dismissal. I would demand that the perp be disciplined, and re-assigned to another area, at the very least.

BTW, my older son is now in his 3rd year at HSOP. His internship territory will be Columbus, starting in the summer.

Good Luck.

I kept thinking this was a veteran's day joke.

OP,

There are some avenues. Your city/ state labor board, HR of the pharmacy you work, owners of the pharmacy (or CEO), and probably one or two more.

I'd defer to our Sig Forum legal beagles if there's a case for emotional distress.







Sentiment without action is the ruin of the soul.


Help, I'm having premonitions of future flashbacks.

I'm thinking (hoping...) that this was a tongue-in-cheek reference to the frivolous suits thread in the Lounge.

I knew some guys who sent in a transfer for their brand new sparkling manager to his manager. That didn’t end very well.

Not a very good resignation letter.

Always logout/lock your screen (it's all your fault....sarc). We have confidentiality rules to screen lock your pc when you leave your desk and about accessing someone else account.

Move on and let HR and/or the manager handle any corrective action (new written rules class to attend.) Don't do something juvenile like let the air out of her tires, shove a potato in her tail pipe, egg her car or any other immature stuff like that.

Perp. should be disciplined fairly strongly. Stunts like this go beyond practical jokes!

She is an asshole.
Sadly, she is also a supposed “health professional”. One would think that with the level of responsibility she’s been taught/given in her field, she’d understand that professionals don’t do this. Adults don’t do this.

If it were up to me, she’d be dismissed. Not funny. Not cool. Not professional. Too many people don’t respect their own profession these days, and she’s a perfect example.
