I am working as a lecturer at a university. My students hate math and stats. Due to that, they hate my class. There is a group of students who are always shouting, yelling, and showing disrespectful behavior. This includes:
- Dr., I will not let you give us the lesson, till you show us our marks (yelling).
- Who are you to give us these regulations (yelling)?
- Waving their hand, showing disrespectful emotional language.
- Sending shouting, disrespectful, and bad behavior emails.
I took my evidence and showed them to my boss. No actions were taken against the students (the students still show disrespectful behavior). I spoke to the dean, but she was very biased against me. She said that these students are still young. Also, these students are very rich and used to have home services at their home, so they look at you like this. I was so angry and told that this is not acceptable at all. later, my boss' secretary, send me an email:
Tomorrow you will have a meeting with Dr. X and Dr. Y at "time".
End of the email. I had no idea about that meeting and was not asked if this time was suitable for me or not. Last semester, Dr. X told me, while shouting and pointing her finger at my face, "You are zero and will be zero forever, in my eyes". Also, "You are bad raising women". No action was taken from my dean or head of the college.
I went to the meeting, their emotion was so bad. Sometimes, they used signal emotion with me. Which is disrespectful behavior.
At the meeting, without listening to me, or even showing me anything, the dean said: "I have a verbal warning for you".
I was so much shocked and asked why. She responded to me that, "Some students complain about your communication with them".
I said, could you please show me their complaints? Did you ask me, whether this is true or not? Did you investigate the cases? You present the verbal warning and want me to sign it for no evidence. Then, I said, how about my complaints against these students with my clear evidence?
She said, in response to me, hold on, do not shout. I was not shouting at all. I felt unfair behavior from them. Then, I said if you will keep going with this, then I need to show this to the court as this is not the first time. She then said I will remove this verbal warning at all.
Now, I would like to write a minute for our meeting and send it back to them. My questions are:
- Can the dean or the head, show, or process a warning report to any employee without evidence?
- How can we describe their behavior against me?
- Is it a good idea to write a minute?
