I Jump Through Hoops For Fear But The Owner Berates Me! I went back to work for a family owned manufacturing company. I adore my co-workers; we all work hard. I was hired on as a Customer Service Manager. I handle customers, in the showroom and on the phone and I do the invoicing for the repairs of equipment and assist my Purchasing Mgr, along with other details that I keep up with. The issue at hand is this: the owner berates, yells and blames every employee in this company for his “special projects”. Meaning there are equipment sales made that exceed our 7 to 10 day turn around. Not everything is in stock per his set min/max requirements on parts. We all jump through hoops, and when the hammer comes down, he begins his blame games, putting everyone down. It is harmful, it is stressing beyond anyone’s normal level of acceptance. He ranted and raved at me in front of customers, and wouldn’t let it go on confronting me on Monday to the point he was in my face, every 30 minutes to make his point in nasty manner, and I didn’t want to listen to his belittle and his unprofessional manners in which he demanded answers to questions he wouldn’t allow me to provide proof of. He accused me of not getting something down, when he pulled me from said task to do another task, and this is a continued hostile effect on my work ability for his blaming me on one thing when he had me directed in another area. I understand there are laws to prevent this. It is now affecting me in a form of a hive outbreak, and tears off and on when I leave the work place. It isn’t as if I can just leave, when I have responsibilities and bills to pay. Can you stir me in the right direction? Is there a law against verbal abuse in the work place?
