I was wrongly accused of having big communication problems at work and forced to sign to agree that I have that problem in appraisal. The reason my boss says that was because she once gave me rather vague instructions, and I have nowhere to help but to email the manager and district manager, then my boss was very angry and she caught me to a 1-1 catch up session to express her anger. She also said she put me as having big communication problem in my appraisal and forced me to sign. Can I accuse her of falsely accusing an employee of misconduct or of not being capable of carrying out their job? How do I gather up some evidences?
Thanks

Unless you do not speak English as your primary language, your post was actually difficult to read and exhibited poor written communication.

Your best bet here, is to start looking for another job...once things start the paper trail...you better start looking for another job, or if you have tenure, possible mediation with supervisor.

You could also request that communication information be sent to you in e mail form, to clarify the instructions.

Well when someone gives you vague instructions you ask for clarification. Maybe that is where your boss is saying you need to improve your communication skills.

If you don't speak up when you're not clear of what someone is asking of you, that falls under poor communication.

Your post is somewhat hard to read, English must be your second language. So maybe that is part of the problem as well.

If you're not sure of what is being asked of you send an email just reviewing the request.

That way you have it in writing.

Always ask for directions for something like this in writing. Your only evidence is that it was not given to you in writing what the job entailed and what you were suppose to do.

Exactly. Then you can go back and say I did exactly what was asked.

Having written documentation is key.

She is angry that you went above her head instead of asking HER PERSONALLY to clarify the instructions she gave. Next time don't do that unless you absolutely cannot get a clear answer from the supervisor who gave you the task and/or the supervisor is not available and you might get in trouble for waiting and not doing the task.
