I need your advice. A friend of mine was supposed to be promoted.
Last Friday, an email containing the list of the ones to be promoted were sent to the bosses (including my friend’s current and former bosses). Because of this, people have been congratulating my friend, even her former boss who put her up for promotion. My friend has been waiting for this promotion since Feb of this year.
But just this morning, HR called my friend to say that my friend’s name was mistakenly placed. That she is not being promoted.
The names in the list were about only 12 people. And in my opinion, a mistake like this is done purposely. I believe that her current boss is responsible for this (for they are not in good terms).
Is there any legal action we can do for this?
