This is the original problem from an employee...
A person with whom I work refuses to talk to me; choosing rather to talk behind my back to our supervisor - I have been put in a position where I try to avoid this person as much as possible but now this person is taking the situation to a higher level and a meeting has been arranged with our supervisor, us and the department head. I believe I will be ambushed in this meeting - I must mention that I have had personality clashes before this. I am too direct and outspoken.

I am in the same situation, however there are only 3 of us in the office. Our supervisor and the two of us employees. There is no going to the "supervisor" much.
Anyways, just because your direct does not make you wrong. This other person refuses to talk to you and that is grade school mentality. I would document everything and I mean everything and as long as everything you are doing is for the benefit of the company and you are not giving into the pettiness of this other person, you should be ok.

I work under this same situation. The first is take notes and never let your guard down. If this person is truely evil then their personality is unpredictable. Surely others around you see the same thing. In my case everyone sees it but the managers, they don't deal with it on a day to day basis so they have a hard time comprehending just how disruptive this person is. I filed an harassment claim against this female (I'm male). This woman has been a workplace bully for 20 years. I took the chance and went to HR. I knew I could be fired but I also knew that it would end up in court and I had other workers that would back me.
Good Luck!
