Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
Hello: This isCustomer Welcome to JustAnswer! I am reviewing your post, and I will post my response very shortly. Thank you for your patience.
I am sorry to read about your difficulties.
If your co-worker is bullying you and you complained about it, that should not cause your job to be at risk because you did not do anything wrong. If you do not like the way the meeting was handled, then you need to let your supervisor know. Unfortunately, if this is a small place and you have already spoken to the highest level, your option may be to try to work around this bullying, find another job, or file lawsuit against the company and the co-worker for intentional infliction of emotional distress.
The employer is vicariously liable for the action of its employee. However, in order to prevail on a claim of Intentional Infliction of Emotional Distress, you need to show that (1) your co-worker acted intentionally or recklessly; (2) that your co-worker's actions were extreme and outrageous;(3) that your co-worker's 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.
