I was wrongfully terminated from my job and I returned thrugh the merrit system.At the time of my termination I was harassed, humiliated and it was a very hostile environment for me. Was not by my boss, but by the dept manager.When I retuned to work they place in a different area. Everything was fine until he went to the human services and he asked for them to transfered back to the same place with him again, and now the harrassement retaliation started again and Iam emotionally distress.When I asked to be removed from that area I was told no space to put me now.

Now I am so stress I too five day off work and afraid to seat at my desk.
Hello and thank you for the question. I am sorry to read of this dilemma. What outcome are you seeking?
I want my employer to keep this manager away from me.
This is often accomplished by complaint to HR. If they will not act, practically having a lawyer attend a meeting and demand this simple accommodation. Employer often will grant it not wanting to raise its own exposure to a claim and arrange for reassignment. martindale.com is an excellent resource. Have a nice evening.
