To set the scene: Imagine you had been off work for two years due to an injury that made you incapable of working. You had kept in contact with your work for the whole two years with medical updates etc etc.
You recently returned about two months ago, but not without hassles. Trying to call the boss to arrange the return to work was a nightmare; he never answered his phone etc etc, but it eventually happened.
Of course, work has changed a bit- new procedures and ways of doing things, budget cuts have made the job a bit more harder and some of the changes don't seem to make sense to you.
If your boss pulled you into his office, and said to you that he wasn't really interested in you coming back (although legally he had no leg to stand on, the job was always yours) because you had been away too long and that you were 'being negative' about the job- what would you do?
Would you report him? Ignore him? Go on about the job but try to be more positives (as an aside, you don't feel you are being negative at all, simply asking why some of the procedures have changed because the new way doesn't make much sense)
I'm very interested to hear your opinions, as this happened to my DP yesterday, and he is very upset about it.
