My boss & her Dept had a very bad reputation when I joined company(non-responsive, missing deadlines,saying no if any little piece missing from request).I am the complete opposite,always helpful & do whatever it takes to make things happen regardless of fault. Other Depts praised me as the best worker (in writing) & my boss started targeting me to get in trouble. Writing me up for being late (but not writing up co-workers who were habitually late) when I got a final warning I was never late again. I asked to leave early to go to a funeral if all my work was done in time. She said "Sounds good" & it was on the calendar. She then told HR I left the office without permission so I was "Involuntarily Disharged" & told I could collect unemployment. EDD denied b/c she said I "abandoned my job"
