Bullying alone is not illegal in the workplace. However if the bullying is done as a result of someone's age, that is unlawful harassment and discrimination under federal law Title VII. The options are:
(1) Schedule an appointment wit a local employment attorney for a free consultation to understand your rights;
(2) Simply forget about the conduct and move on.

Bullying in the workplace is not illegal unless it is based upon a protected characteristic. Although it may not be right, that is the present state of the law.

The court does not take passion into consideration when interpreting the law. You can look to retain counsel to see if it would represent you. And the fact that my answer was already something you heard of should not prevent you from rating me. I assure you will be hearing the same answer to your question again and again because that is the correct answer. The value of my answer should save time, costs and uncertainty in connection to pursuing such a claim or incite you to find local counsel to represent you. Anything I say to you will not change the law.
