Document, document, document.
Keep detailed records of everything that happens and be sure to include dates and times. For now, you may make more waves by passing on a rumor. Then again, your boss may want to hear whats going on.

Question added to topic Human Resources • September 24, 2009
What should I do when a threat has been made against me by HR?
I received some "off color" messages on my cell phone that sound exactly like our HR manager. I went to our president, who agreed that parts of the message did sound like our HR manager. The HR assistant recently told me that the HR manager thinks I stole my paid time off reports. I was asked to keep quiet.
