Actions of the employer are deplorable when they don't treat employees fairly and within the law. Their gamble is that the savings from monkeying with employees performance ratings (to deny them bonuses, raises and or terminations) will outweigh costs of some of the lawsuits that would be brought forward.
Of course the propaganda machine is where they are putting their efforts while drilling fear amongst employees. They cant seem to loose sight of the $$ savings to realize that the trust they have betrayed will not come back. Not worth it. Toxic environment.
Cannot trust management when they act as hypocrites as defined by their actions.
