  1. After the case at ICR, they have “enforced” a zero tolerance policy for bullying. They say this with loud voices. In reality it is fake PR. In reality, they have doubled down to silence and crush those who dare to raise concerns. In reality, it is a zero tolerance policy for speaking up against bullying. HR colludes with managers in the abuse by pretending to listen to you while they delay delay delay action. Then they turn everything against you and blame you then fire you. Disgusting
