Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
If you have a Union, then you need to contact your Union Representative to file for grievance for you. If you do not have a Union, then you need to escalate the matter to the highest person in your organization. If the issue remains unresolved, then you may consider retaining an Attorney who handles employment issues to assist you in filing lawsuit for Intentional Infliction of Emotional Distress. However, in order to prevail on a claim of Intentional Infliction of Emotional Distress, you need to show that (1) the Lieutenant acted intentionally or recklessly; (2) that his actions were extreme and outrageous;(3) that his actions were the cause (4) of your severe emotional distress, which would be evidenced by you going to doctors for medical treatment or seeking therapy. If you cannot prove all the four factors above, you would not prevail in your lawsuit for Intentional Infliction of Emotional Distress.
