De John - VK6JB,
There is one recommendation in the quote below that would be the FIRST step
I would take.
I suspect this new manager is reveling in his recently attained power. You
can see this in his action to send a letter instead of talking direct to you
about his perceived issue(s).
So the first thing I would do is "lawyer up"... Actually, a simple letter
back to him written by a lawyer on his letterhead will carry a significant
weight. It will also keep this issue private. The last thing you want to do
is shine a spotlight on this new manager because his natural tendency will
be to dig in and hold his position, whether he is right or wrong.
Keep it private in the beginning.
I used this technique with a neighbor who wanted me to pay the repair
charges to his car when he ran over my purebred sheepdog and killed him. I
received a letter from his insurance company. I lawyered up, composed a
letter for my attorney, which he re-wrote in more "compelling terms" and
sent back to the insurance company and the neighbor. That's the last I heard
about the issue.
There is incredible power in a legal letterhead that you can leverage to
your advantage. If this doesn't work, then follow the other recommendations
you were given.
Good luck in your resolution.
