I was told to give a presentation to G.M to V.P. levels as well as my peers. I had one meeting with my supervisor two days before the presentation and the day before the presentation I found out there was a template to use. During the presentation while listening to other presenters (this is a competition) I realized I wasn't even close to being on the right track. I tried to compose a presentation that was required during the 1/2 hour before my turn. By the time I performed I was a nervous wreck and had a melt down during my presentation. When I went back to my desk and talked to my co-workers I found he had done this before. This team member was also humiliated but at a much smaller level than I. I do not want to go back to the office!
A terrible experience but not one that will support a lawsuit against the employer. You haven't been terminated, suspended, demoted... Lawsuits are for recovering damages due to acts that cause financial or other kinds of compensable injury. This event is unlikely to be determined to constitute intentional infliction of emotional distress.
My responses to questions on Avvo are never intended as legal advice and must not be relied upon as legal advice. I give legal advice only in the course of an attorney-client relationship. Exchange of information through Avvo's Questions forum does not establish an attorney-client relationship with me. That relationship is established only by individual consultation and execution of a written agreement for legal services.
