I work at an advertising agency. Recently we had a job come through that we had to design-- some gasoline pump toppers (like the ones you see at gas stations on top of the pump that say "buy one soda get one free" or whatever. The art came pre-approved from another company, so I put it in the size they told me to and sent it out to get it proofread for errors-- checked out. It came back that it was the wrong size, so I started to rebuild the art to the right size, but then my boss came in and said he was taking over the job. So I left it alone. I guess he didn't check the work because when he sent it out it was still the wrong size, and it got printed that way and cost my company a lot of money to fix. So they flew in one of the VP's from Dallas to officially chew ME out. They said that it was all my fault and I did not follow procedure, and I am supposed to sign a "write up" that will go in my permanent record with the company (does this sound like high school to you too?)!!! So what happened is my boss decided not to take the heat when he broke procedure! He didn't rebuild the file or do anything himself and he didn't check the work and he sent out my old files that weren't correct, and now the whole thing is getting blamed on me and he is not assuming ANY responsibility! They told me I have to sign these papers saying I screwed it all up and cost the company $50,000. If I don't sign them then I will get fired. But I didn't do this! My dad says not to sign ANYTHING, he used to be the CEO of a Fortune 100 company and he said this is blackmail and coercion and that under no circumstances should I take the fall for someone else's mistake. This goes on my PERMANENT RECORD with the company and they can disclose it to anyone asking for my references! And now I don't know what to do! HELP, give me some advice PLEASE!
