A new survey reveals some clues about how your boss may be pushing you out the door.

According to the Kansas City Star, a Harris Interactive poll conducted last month surveyed managers and listed these red flags:

* Your manager is pointing out more of your shortcomings.

* Your responsibilities are reduced, or you're not part of certain meetings or projects.

* Your communications come by e-mail, not in person or on the phone, and you're out of the loop.

*A new employee is hired to do the same work you do.

* In social workplaces that have after-work gatherings, you're not invited.
