    My new boss "adjusts" himself while talking to me. I find it rude, and What can I do?

    I've complained to HR, their answer was for me to get a chair for him to sit on.They would not talk to him. He is a bully. He follows me around the building, To make sure I am working I guess. He distrusts me. The CEO LOVES him.  He took some of my responsibilities away and gave them to a new hire (younger men). I am an older woman. I have great reviews from my former boss. During the lean times when younger men quit, I assumed their duties. Though the company is growing those duties have been away, given to younger men and I'm left with the data entry. Is there anything I can do?

    Surprise those who underestimate your talent and skillsets. I'm sure you have in you and it is time now to bring it out. Example: If you are good at preparing statements or excel reports then prepare an excellent report or produce some statistics. Use your experience and polish them back again to surprise your bosses.

    I hope my advice helps!

    What does your resume look like? You really have two options:
    1. The CEO hired a golf buddy that was out of work because he was a total ass at   his previous place of employment so your chances of bringing up problems with him to anyone are thin and none. Learn to provide him more than he wants to the point he seeks cover for not understanding all you are providing as you are proving smarter than he is. When he took away responsibility, did he also take away added money? If not, good for you.
    2. Find good work in a better atmosphere elsewhere. Only do this while you keep your current job. If you are "older" than the others in the office, it will be harder to find a job than it was when you went looking before. Where did your old boss go? Does he need a great assistant? Will he help you find a better place and keep your search quiet?

    Have you put your complaints to HR in writing?  You can document the incidents and your efforts to address them (dates, notes to file, emails to HR). Meanwhile, as sad as this is, if the CEO loves the guy, start looking for a new job.

    The documents you're assembling can help buy time if they try to force you out, and can be used for future actions or complaints if needed.

    Get out while you still can.
