signs your boss wants you to leave

Do you have that feeling like your boss or manager might be wanting you to quit? Have you felt some type of anger towards you in the workplace and you can’t figure out why? It might be that your boss wants you to leave the company.

Unfortunately, making someone’s life difficult through their work is absolutely a tactic that managers and other colleagues use to get you to lave the company. This happens when they are threatened by you, displeased with you, or hurt by something you may have said.

This is a common occurrence. If for example, you did well at something that your manager should have done, this could be a reason why your supervisor or boss might make your life complicated.

Can They Do This? Is It Legal?

Unfortunately, there’s nothing that says what they’re doing is wrong. Because it’s nearly impossible for you to prove that they are trying to get you to leave the company by making your life difficult at work.

They will simply be telling you to do your job. But will give you almost zero flexibility in your work. Causing you to feel stress and pressure. This is difficult to prove. Because it makes the manager appear as though they are doing their job.

But you, the employee, feel distressed.

What Are The Signs They Are Trying To Get You To Leave

If you feel like your manager is trying to get you to quit by making your life hard, here are some ways that you might be able to tell.

If you feel any of these qualities, be sure that you speak with your Human Resources team regarding them. Never feel like you need to leave the company for one person. If you are happy with your work, feel like you’ve done a great job with the company already, inform Human Resources that you feel someone is being malicious towards you.

When doing so, be sure to bring up hard facts and factors that you’ve recorded. Don’t simply present how you feel, emotionally. That won’t work as substantial evidence towards your manager not doing their job.
