>>>... it's hard for me to imagine how all that documenting is going to help Kari. If her boss is gunning for her, chances are not in her favor that some higher-up will want to read her dutiful documentation of what her boss told her, and what she did, etc. etc. It's far more likely, I think, that the upper boss will simply rely on what Kari's boss says. In employee-said, manager-said situations, directors tend to side with managers.

If nothing else, however the situation ends, you can know that you did your best to capture the situation. If they still side with the manager, well, be kinda glad you're out of that toxic workplace.

I have had a similar thing in the past - and for reasons I do not know the boss was suddenly gunning for me (and when the boss suddenly got chummy with the one HR person on staff, well, odds really became stacked against me). I may have been the rat that was shoved off the ship first, but I did find out that a lot of others quickly followed as there was a noticeable change in overall management styles and group dynamics of a lot of people throwing others under the bus.
