I think the problem may be greater than just asking him to step down, although that may be an attempt to deal with this. There must have been other stress as well, and workplace stress can be a work and safety issue. So if these comments are part of a bigger failure, then yes the employer may not have provided a safe workplace and should be prosecuted
