The Problems HR Tech Will (Hopefully) Solve in 2020

should I email my complaints to my team when I resign?

Ask A Manager

A reader writes: Would it be career suicide to send an email to everyone at my current job explaining why I’m leaving it? My boss turned out to be a two-faced liar who viciously targeted and drove out several coworkers (while quite a few more left because they couldn’t stomach how others were being treated).

Ask A Manager

It’s five answers to five questions. Here we go…. My former employee lied to get a new job — should I do anything? Recently I became aware that a former direct report of mine had landed a new job with a new employer. Kudos to him! But the job he got is well beyond his abilities and experience, by about 10 years. He jumped about three levels, to an equivalent level to mine. Curious, I checked out his LinkedIn and his professional site, and what I found is rather shocking.
