Employer is damaging my reputation with client

I took a job a year ago for which I am significantly over-qualified, because it allowed me to work from home while I convalesced from two major surgeries. During that time, I have observed myriad opportunities to improve operations and brought many of those to my management but virtually all were ignored. So, I have thrice over several months proposed to higher management that I move to a new role, but due to incredibly high management turnover there has also been to no progress there.

My employer is a service outsourcing business, and while this was unfolding the client of theirs I essentially work for posted an opening for a job with a description essentially identical to that I have been proposing to my employer, and I indicated to a colleague that I would be applying for it. This information became known to my management, who NOW became interested and called me into a meeting with the intention of terminating me, which I have theater temporarily by virtue of belonging to multiple protected employee classes.

As a result of that meeting, my direct supervisor and her boss have begun a campaign of harassment. Most of that is typical and not germaine to my issue for this forum, which is that they are also actively working to denigrate my relationship with the client, using demonstrably false information. Can I halt that behavior, and/or Sue for the damage to my ability to later work for the client?

It may be worth noting that no NDA nor non-compete prevents me from going to work for/with the client.

Thanks very much in advance for your help.

Hidden Negitive Reputation Score [duplicate]

  • Why does reputation start at 1, and have a lower bound of 1?

With all the down voting going on why not have the number next to your profile picture also reflect negative reputation that people including you can’t see? I notice even if I have a positive reputation after a long year long suspension I still have to be very careful not to get flagged. It is not like when you first start where you can make a few mistakes and get a day or week. If you get suspended it is for another year for any mistake you make. I am trying to fix my early errors but only receive more down votes or something that keeps me in a perpetual state of bans and suspensions. I just want to start fresh.

  1. Delete a post that has a negative score
  2. Watch your reputation points. They will remain the same, e.g. 13
  3. Undelete your previous post
  4. Wait for some time, say 5 minutes, and refresh your page and see you reputation lessen to 11. (as 13-2 = 11)

SkillRep – experiment in computing a skill focused reputation

Update: Now offline/closed. See the answer, below.

Reputation, on the Stack Overflow Site, is mostly a measure of a user’s contribution.

That’s fine but sometimes, when looking at a user you encounter on SO, you’re more interested in his skills.
You don’t want a score coming from questions or polluted by a high-scoring answer to a trivial but very popular question.

SkillRep is both

1. a site ranking all users with (a little) less pollution on scoring. The About section explains how the “skill rep” is computed.

enter image description here

2. an extension for Chrome displaying the rank and skill reputation of all users directly in the Stack Overflow site.

enter image description here

Incidentally it’s written in Go. Curious coders might want to have a look at how querying the SE API or serving JSON can be done in Go (it’s fairly simple).

Obviously this shouldn’t be taken too seriously.

Why can’t I comment until I get 50 reputation? [duplicate]

This question already has an answer here:

  • Why do I need 50 reputation to comment? What can I do instead?

    1 answer

Why does Stack Overflow require a contributor to have 50 reputation points before allowing to comment? I wanted to answer a problem that many have in Visual Studio with performance but I can’t add my comment. I find it not only annoying that I can’t contribute. Why should I come back and try to help others on this site if I’m not allowed to? Doesn’t that defeat the purpose of this site?
