California Employment Law Questions Answered by Legal Experts
Personally, to date at least, she has not targeted me. But she consistently questions the capablities of one of my workmates. At one point she asked me if I thought he was stupid. This and many many other things creates a very uncomfortable situation with all my other co workers. Our director either seems not to notice, or believes her behavior is appropriate, but I am to the point of quitting my job, but I think something needs to really happen to put her on notice that her actions are creating a very devisive work situation.
I am not sure there is anything I can legally do, but I would love it if there was something I could do.
He is not in a protected status as he is a white male approximately 30 years old. I am not really sure what is going on with her attitude towards him, but it is making the rest of us uncomfortable and creating an incredibly negative atmosphere.
She does have one of her old employees working as a contractor with us, I think she means for him to replace the other employee. I have stood in the harassed employees corner a few time and feel I might be the next person on her list.
