What Would You Do If a Coworker Were Called a Liar?

    A coworker was called a "liar" by a temporary supervisor.  How can another employee best help this person with false accusations?

    Back Story:  The worker was very ill - everyone knew this.  The lie was apparently he did not say he was not able to make his shifts.  He was going for chemo and even I knew that (and I work less than 2 hours a week there).

    Subsequently, the worker was suspended for two weeks.


    PS I thought this was a moral question not a social issues - don't know IF I categorized this correctly - I am new to the forums so I apologize IF this is incorrect placement or unwarranted use of the forums.

      I'd tell someone above the supervisor.

      If the supervisor was only temporary, he was probably unsure about his job, feeling new and didn't want to admit a mistake - so he took it out on someone else.

      I'd definitely talk to someone higher in the food chain.
