I was offered a promotion at my part time job via email. My boss asked if I wanted to manage a new site starting in 2 weeks. She stated it was ok that I could only be there in the afternoons. I accepted and started on the date specified at the new site. I also started performing “office hours” (only required for supervisors) one day/week in her office, put the new title on my timesheets, and she started sending me emails addressed to supervisors regarding supervisory issues such as billing, staffing and mandatory trainings. When she offered the position to me she said it was to replace E, who was leaving the organization. I did the job for 5 months, at which time E returned to her old position. When I asked what that meant for me, my boss said “nothing will change for you.” Since I have been applying for other full time positions during this time, and I was a bit suspicious about the re-hire of E (who spoke to me like I was her subordinate), I contacted HR to ask what my job title was. Turns out my job title was never changed to supervisor. I asked what a potential employer who was vetting my resume would be told if they asked if I were a supervisor at this job and she replied they would be told “she has never been employed at this organization in that capacity.”
I emailed my boss to ask why my job title never changed. She replied that due to my inability to commit the necessary number of hours to the position, I was never promoted, but she neglected to tell me that because “time got away from her.”
I followed up by emailing her boss and attaching relevant emails. I stated that my resume now looks like I lied, AND I turned down the opportunity to work more hours at my other part time job (at nearly twice the hourly rate) because I thought I was obligated to the office hours required for a supervisor. I asked that my job title be changed for that time period. And then, there is the issue of wages: those lost in my other job, as well as the fact that I never did get a raise when I "thought" I was promoted.
Do I have the right to ask for the title adjustment? Lost wages? Anything?
A related issue as well is that in my last week before E returned, my supervisor gave me four performance review sheets with my name and lower title listed, with 4 separate dates all occurring between 2011-2012. The sections Observations, Suggestions and Conference Notes were all blank. She asked me to sign the bottom and I refused
