Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
Hello and welcome. My name is ***** ***** it will be my pleasure to assist you. Please just give me a moment to review your question....
It's commonly misunderstood, but most forms of "harassment" in the workplace aren't actually illegal. In general, harassment only violates the law if the harassment relates directly to a legally protected trait, such as race, religion or disability. In these cases, it becomes actionable on civil rights grounds. But in all other circumstances, no law requires employees to be nice to each other. There is no "civility code" in employment and it is not illegal to be rude, unprofessional or downright disrespectful.
Your post does not suggest that any unlawful harassment occurred. Rather, this would appear to be an internal personnel matter, and as such something for your employer to handle in whatever manner they see fit.
If I can clarify anything at all for you, please do not hesitate to ask. It is my pleasure to assist you further if necessary....
