I'm the OP and I wanted to thank everybody once more for all of their helpful posts! I ended up taking some time off and leaving that job because I was in a no win situation. My gut feeling had been right in that the manager wanted to put me on a plan and, interestingly, that manager wasn't even my manager anymore but was insisting to do it with the full cooperation of HR before the new manager officially started. The HR witch also violated my HIPAA rights by sharing a private medical note that was sent to her from my doctor when I took a day off with my manager and the manager was stupid enough to reference it in electronic communication with me along with my personal doctor's name. In all fairness--I hated but tolerated the crap treatment as best as I could but when my federal rights were violated I had to make a complaint to the same HR witch as well as the chief of compliance when I submitted my resignation. The HR witch never said a word about her wrongdoing and the compliance dude was very wishy-washy about the whole thing by saying that it really wasn't a HIPAA violation because of a possible "perceived conflict of interest" because a doctor I called on for business was also my personal medical doctor (but it's BS) and the compliance guy also reassured me that it was not a conflict of interest (even though I already knew that). The compliance guy even offered me my job back but the HR witch quickly put the kibosh on it (I think she's genuinely scared of me now). I have spoken with attorneys who say that I have a good case but I'm so happy to be gone and for the peace of mind (even though I feel I'm still recovering a bit). Thank you once more to everyone out there because your helpful posts meant to world to me as well as your sincere care! If anyone has anymore advice--I'd love to read it.
