Ok.  I'll keep it as short as possible.  Like I said in my previous post, I haven't had a job in a long time, so I was very relieved to find out that I had gotten a job last week.  It's an admin assistant type job, you know, the kind of job that you're not thrilled about but think it will be fine for a while.  Not only that, but it's likely the only part time job I'd be able to get with good pay and insurance (as that kind of a job is a rare breed indeed).

However, today I found out, both from direct experience and from my coworkers, that she is a (direct quote) "very difficult person to work with."  Basically she reduced me to tears in front of the whole office by criticizing me for not doing something well that she absolutely knew I had NO experience with.  Needless to say, I didn't feel great for the rest of the day.  Not only that, but she expects people to read her mind and questions you about whether you have done something when she never told you to do it or how to  do it in the first place.

Anyway, I basically just wanted to bitch and moan.  If I have to quit this job just because the boss is detrimental to my mental health I'm going to be PISSED.  I know quitting would be bad for my mental health too.

There's always a catch, isn't there?

As far as I know they don't have HR, but I can look it up.  My boss is an elected official and gets to set the rules for how the office is run as long as they are in line with the policies of the larger organization.

As far as documentation goes, no I have not submitted documentation, nor do I have any.  If you are referring to accomodations, my Voc Rehab counselor thought I should wait and see if I actually needed any before requesting them.

Even elected officials have to follow employment laws, it's not a question of being inline with the political positions.

If you're working in a small private office then there are fewer resources, but if you're working inside a bigger organization for this person than you probably have access to the overall HR and so forth. It depends on what the elected official is doing. My dad worked directly under one for many years, but the department was run strictly by the rules and continued to be so after he moved on.
