Thank you for trusting your question to JA today. I am a licensed attorney with over a decade of law practice and over 20 years of experience in the legal field. I’m happy to be of assistance.

If the harassment directed at you is based on your race, religion, gender, age, disability or recent medical leave use, it is illegal harassment and you should report the employer to the EEOC in your state.

If the harassment is not based on one of those factors though, then it is not illegal harassment. Courts would consider it workplace politics which they do not get involved in. You'd unfortunately have no recourse other than filing for unemployment.

If you have any further questions, please let me know. I invite follow up questions, so use REPLY for those. If you have no further questions then good luck going forward and please do not forget to rate my service with a top-three rating so that I receive credit for working with you today. Please rate me based on my service and not on your satisfaction with the law, which I am not in control of and I am just reporting to you. Also, feel free to request me in the future, if you have questions concerning a different matter.
