I am very sorry to hear this. These types of situations are fairly common. You may want to consider speaking to an employment law attorney in your area who could evaluate whether you may be able to pursue a claim for what is called a "hostile work environment." Employees should feel safe and comfortable when doing their jobs and this type of harassment and behavior by them may give rise to a claim.
