manager of a team. turned around performance, KPI’s, data, processes. was marked as high potential and on succession plan. enters new region leader, played favorites. hired her own pet from previous company and gave her the role i was earmarked for. new hire makes my life miserable. so i left. but the more i think about it - this was not fair. should i consult a lawyer to see if i have a case?
Unfortunately, being a non-pet is not a protected class, assuming that you’re in the US.
