Help With Compassion?
This post just might get banned but it's totally legit. Normally I'm a very compassionate person, but in this case my sense of fairness trumps my compassion.
My boss just gave a co-worker 30 days off for a reason where he would NEVER let me take off more than a couple of days. No really, there is no HR reason for letting this person take 30 days off. In speaking with other people, this seems to be a common practice amongst companies - that it's accepted that people from India get 30 days off at a time when they need to go home for something.
I'm in the middle of a huge project with deadlines looming. Of course, all the work of the co-worker got dumped on me.
Am I totally out of line here? I'd love your thoughts as I'd like to get to a place where I can accept this apparent discrimination. It's just not happening with my own world view... Help?
